Woolcock GroupThe complex Woolcock Group saw significant improvement thanks to the reporting capabilities of MYOB Advanced
The Woolcock Group is a large organisation with entities across numerous industries. They needed a way to view the data of the whole group from one place. MYOB Advanced provided the single source of truth that they required.
Who are the Woolcock Group?
Founded in 1978, the Woolcock Group have grown to employ over 70 staff across a diverse number of businesses. The Woolcock group has become quite complex, from WineWorks Australia to Woolcock Construction and several other commercial property management entities.
What catalysed the switch to MYOB Advanced?
Their current system, MYOB Premier, lacked some of the more powerful functions in ERP systems. The Woolcock Group were limited by their reporting capabilities. They struggled to get the best picture of their data across or within entities. Payroll reporting could not be separated into pay categories. As a result, interstate payroll tax and WorkCover payments were difficult to calculate and reconcile. However, the Woolcock Group knew that MYOB makes software for more than just small companies. They chose MYOB Advanced as their MYOB Enterprise software for the future.
What changes followed the decision?
Due to operating across several sites, the Woolcock Group needed a solution allowing them to work remotely. As a cloud-based platform, MYOB Advanced gave them this flexibility and the power they were missing from their old system. Since the implementation, the team has streamlined several processes and saved significant time. MYOB Advanced Construction is built specifically to improve efficiency in the construction industry. It gives you complete visibility over your operations, from costing to time management, compliance, and more.
How are they now?
The Woolcock Group have embraced MYOB Advanced and the extra reporting capability it allows. Their profit and loss reports compare data against subaccounts and eliminate the need to export data to Excel. They enjoy the way that they can build reports and save customised versions across all users. They feel that they have implemented a long-term solution. MYOB Advanced meets their needs now and gives the Woolcock Group room to grow in the future.
