Thompson GroupThompson Group are building their legacy with MYOB Advanced
MYOB Advanced is laying the foundations for future growth for an established New Zealand Based Engineering company. Thompson Group enjoys MYOB Advanced’s whole company visibility and custom reporting that helps them make the best decisions for their organisation.
Who is Thompson Group?
Thompson Group is a New Zealand-based construction and engineering business that pride itself on taking projects from the very start to the finish line. Their team is involved across the entire construction process, from 3D design, steel fabrication, precast and construction to property management. Over the past four decades, Thompson Construction and Engineering has experienced exceptional growth. They are now one of the South Island’s largest design and construction companies.
What catalysed the switch to MYOB Advanced?
The Thompson Group faced new challenges along with its rapid growth. Their old system lacked visibility across all facets of their organisation. Every year, the projects they secured were getting bigger and more complex, which meant more machinery and more staff needed. They required a new solution with so many moving parts, details to track, and the need to duplicate data across different systems. Finding a platform that solved the lack of visibility and reports timeliness they had struggled with became important. Thompson Group needed an all-in-one software solution that could grow as the organisation changed, and connect project management to financial performance.

What changes followed the decision?
By implementing MYOB Advanced Business, the Thompson Group has brought all its data to the surface in one system. The Thompson Group team had previously struggled to see their project’s data in real-time. So, we built custom dashboards and reports that improved the visibility of their data. MYOB Advanced has also enabled Thompson group to be more analytical with its data and better track its fleet and equipment maintenance. The organisation can interface with various external data collection points through APIs, including Kynection for equipment management, alerts, and on-site scheduling. These efficiency improvements save time and costs for Thompson Group and their clients. The ability to prevent delays has brought peace of mind to the team.
How are they now?
MYOB Advanced Business has become critical to the company’s future-proof plan and growth journey. They can now back-cost regularly with reliable, current data, improving the reliability of pricing for future projects. MYOB Advanced has managed bigger, more complex project costs and budgets in a system that seamlessly integrates with financials. They continue working with Kilimanjaro Consulting to further improve their processes and expand their system functionality. Thompson Group has built on their strong foundation and made MYOB Advanced Business a reliable core of its organisation. They are always finding new ways it can automate and improve efficiency at every stage of their process.
