Unitex InternationalA swift rollout of MYOB Exo helped Unitex International to improve their efficiency.
Unitex International had grown out of its old MYOB Premier system and needed a solution that could eliminate manual processes and give them greater stock control. MYOB Exo provided all the functionality they needed, as well as being scalable and customisable to suit them into the future.
Who is Unitex International?
Unitex International is an established family business, who have been supplying the best rugs from around the world for the past 15 years. They pride themselves on their sales support and range, stocking over 300,000 different rugs. They work out of a large import and distribution centre in Alexandria, Sydney that sees 350 containers of rugs a year, and can ship out 3000 rugs to customers per day.
What catalysed the switch to MYOB Exo?
Unitex was growing rapidly and although their original MYOB Premier solution had been satisfactory, it had grown too complex for it to be able to handle its business. The limited control over debtor accounts, lack of visibility, reporting limitations, and reliance on manual processes slowed their business down. Unitex considered several other options in the market but found that MYOB Exo was the right solution to meet their complex needs and for the right price.

What changes followed the decision?
Unitex International engaged Kilimanjaro Consulting as their local implementation partner and benefitted from our tried and tested methodology. The MYOB Exo implementation was done quickly and within budget. While they only had basic customisations of their system from go-live, Unitex knew that MYOB Exo was scalable and could be continually customised to suit their changing needs.
How are they now?
Unitex has continued to work with its trusted MYOB Partner, Kilimanjaro Consulting, to make sure that MYOB Exo is giving them all the functionality they need. Their system has been customised to increase visibility as well as include greater forecasting and reporting measures. With this increased visibility, Unitex has greater control over its stock movement and has put itself in a much stronger cash flow position. They have also become unburdened from the manual processes that plagued their operations pre-implementation and have enjoyed the increase in efficiency that comes with upgrading to MYOB Exo.
