Taskmaster HardwareNew management in 2011 meant an opportunity for Taskmaster to meet with Kilimanjaro to assess their business requirements
Taskmaster Hardware is an Australian-owned, national distributor of home, trade and gardening hardware.
The business was founded in 1985 and in 2011, the Taskmaster business was acquired. A priority for new management was to review their systems. The management team believed there was a business system that would be better aligned with Taskmaster’s requirements; one that was scalable, user-friendly and cost-effective to name a few.
The Taskmaster team were put in touch with Kilimanjaro, who rose to the challenge of providing a quick, effective implementation. Understanding the short time frame, we addressed Taskmaster’s requirements swiftly to ensure the process was smooth and completed timeously. Our MD Ronnie Baskind credits both Taskmaster and Kilimanjaro for their dedication to the project. “Straight away, everyone was on board to cohesively assess Taskmaster’s needs and use Kilimanjaro’s methodology to ensure the implementation was successful.”
Bernadette Meehan led the implementation team at Kilimanjaro to ensure the deployment of MYOB Exo went smoothly for Taskmaster. “The people at Taskmaster were determined to have Exo implemented as quickly and efficiently as possible, which meant they were eager to learn the system. We trained two champions who then created system sheets to distribute to the rest of the team. They really showed how much they were willing to learn in such a short amount of time”.
Once Taskmaster had seen just how capable the team at Kilimanjaro was, they decided to integrate their systems by adding MYOB Exo Payroll.
The Taskmaster team are confident that MYOB Exo is flexible enough to grow as the business does. Furthermore, they are impressed at how easy MYOB Exo is to use- improving efficiencies all around.
How do I achieve a successful implementation?
