If you’re in the process of selecting an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) or Financial Management Software provider, it is always a good idea to think about the key areas where they excel and the associated benefits it will bring to your business. This then needs to be taken into the context of your business objectives and expectations to ensure it is all aligned.
Maintaining your infrastructure is as important as hiring the right people or making the right marketing investments. If it’s time to review your business systems and invest in a new ERP solution, it’s a unique opportunity to take a critical look at how your last solution served your needs, how your business is changing and what may work better in future.
To help you get started on this, here are five reasons that make MYOB Greentree the ideal solution:
1. Functional depth of existing suites
MYOB Greentree software is a lot more than just a financial management system. It has extensive functionality to support a wide range of business requirements for varying sized firms operating in differing industries.
MYOB Greentree’s module offerings make it one of the most flexible and powerful ERP solutions on the market today.
MYOB Greentree offers over 80 integrated modules. With this depth of capability, requirements can be delivered to different businesses without them having to compromise their processes or rely on lengthy customisation. Essentially, the modules
- Are all the same user interface and standards
- Are all one language/ production environment to smooth the application of upgrades
- No release and update required
- No reconciliation of transactions from sub modules to main modules to finance
3. Ability to be configured
ERP software can be configured to meet the particular challenges of your business and market. You normally don’t find this level of customisation at this market level and would otherwise potentially have to pay much more for an ERP system that is not substantially more powerful.
An example of this is; if you have one customer who represents a significant portion of your business, then it may be appropriate to have processes that are unique to this customer, prioritising their needs.
4. Functions that go beyond accounting
MYOB Greentree is much more than ‘accounting software’. Some of its value added features include:
Information and Document Management
Attachments and links, auto scanning, automatically send reports and business documents e.g. send invoices to customers automatically via email, data import manager to automate data file imports.
Configurable desktop views, real-time data, workflow management to empower managers or supervisors to use workflow desktops to monitor and manage the team workload and allocate/reallocate work.
Approvals and Alerts
Automatically notify users of critical information. For example:
- When a customer gets over their credit limit, configure your approval processes to suit your needs.
- For a multi-level approval process, including groups, multiple and sequenced or based on events or exceptions.
- Approvals on the run using web or mobile based interfaces.
- Escalations engine to identify actions that have not been completed on schedule.
Business Process Management (BPM) and Process Flow Designer
The ability to automatically define and document your processes within Greentree in order to: ensure compliancy, simplify routine tasks, remove human error and unnecessary administration, define complex processes, track and audit.
The business processes your employees are undertaking on a daily basis are what drives your firm. Mapping them out and using the Greentree software to ensure the optimum efficiency is key to gaining and retaining your competitive edge.
MYOB Greentree BPM has the ability to graphically represent the process which guides your users through each step in order, and will not allow users to progress to the next step until completed correctly.
5. Relationship with customers
One of the most important reasons MYOB Greentree ERP is unique, is simple: the relationship MYOB establishes with its customers. MYOB takes extraordinary collaboration seriously and it is a driver for everything they do.
MYOB always listens – really listens – and applies what our customers say to the development and revision process.
What this boils down to is that MYOB knows what’s happening with its customers and works to incorporate those changing needs into its road maps.
