WDEA WorksNot-for-Profit organisation WDEA Works find improved efficiency with MYOB Advanced.
WDEA Works needed a modern cloud-based system that eliminated data entry and bring all their data into one place.
Who are WDEA Works?
WDEA Works is a not-for-profit organisation that assists people of all abilities in finding long-term employment opportunities. Over the past 30 years, WDEA has assisted over 40,000 people in finding inclusive employment through its social enterprises, providing support services, and enriching local communities.
What catalysed the switch to MYOB Advanced?
Their previous system was outdated and failed to provide the information needed for WDEA works to provide their services. The old system required a large number of manual processes and was preventing employees from performing their duties efficiently and effectively. The previous transaction system also struggled to save and update the large amount of data coming into the system on a daily basis. This, coupled with the lack of a clear number trail, caused issues when the time came for audits and system assessments.
What changes followed the decision?
Following the switch to MYOB Advanced, there was immediate ease in pressure on finance staff and other employees. The pivot to their new and intuitive cloud-based system made light work of the daily transactions and data entry, saving time and ensuring that the data is accessible for the whole network of support providers. With more than 500 clients, WDEA saw up to 100 bills being paid out daily; the upgraded software made data reporting easy and time efficient. The new system is slotted in seamlessly with existing software creating an integrated system for employees.
How are they now?
With MYOB Advanced automating the previously manual data entry, employees have more time to focus on providing quality services and assistance to their clients as NDIS providers. MYOB Advanced has brought together the many social enterprises run by WDEA, ensuring seamless cross-platform integration and providing the room needed for their rapid growth now and in the future.
