WintonWinton gains productivity and business potential with MYOB Advanced
Winton was looking for an ERP solution to automate consolidation and provide customised reporting. MYOB Advanced was the answer to their search, with customisation enabling improved efficiency and access to specific real-time insights.
Who is Winton?
Winton is an NZX and ASX-listed group of 30+ companies specialising in developing integrated and fully master-planned communities. Winton focuses on the details and always aims to be the best by design. They have a portfolio of more than 7,500 residential lots, dwellings, apartment units and retirement village units.
What catalysed the switch to MYOB Advanced?
The company structure added a layer of complexity to its financial operations. The Winton Group is made up of many subsidiaries operating at once. However, they only had a small finance team to keep track of everything. Due to the nature of their business, incoming sales were unpredictable and reliant on external factors. While the financial systems of the individual businesses had been managed using MYOB AccountRight, the organisation had wholly outgrown it. They required a centralised, integrated system. They required more robust functionality than their current system would allow while also being able to automate tedious tasks. MYOB Advanced was the cloud-based business management solution they were looking for.
What changes followed the decision?
With MYOB Advanced Business, Winton moved from having 30+ MYOB AccountRight sites to a single, integrated setup. The Velixo reporting add-on also automated consolidation across the entire enterprise. MYOB Advanced’s customisation enabled staff to create unique sales reports and uncover powerful insights from one single truth source. Templates in MYOB Advanced led to efficiency improvements in their settlement process. Automated bank feeds were crucial to Winton’s software switch, saving their finance team time and stress at month’s end.
How are they now?
Winton has been able to future-proof their workflows and increase potential with MYOB Advanced. They are preparing an IPO for listing, which has required a large amount of information gathering with a short turnaround. MYOB Advanced has made this process smoother and quicker than ever before. Automated consolidation provides senior leadership with high-level, real-time insights that were unavailable. MYOB Advanced has changed the entire team’s day-to-day requirements, meaning they can focus their energy on value-adding in other business areas.
