Butch has made big savings in running costs, because of MYOB Greentree’s instant, accurate raw material measurement. A new business system was becoming imperative, in order to handle major expansion plans.
MYOB Greentree’s integrated functionality has made a vast difference to Butch’s operational efficiency. They purchase their raw ingredients in tonnes, and Greentree has eliminated the need for time-consuming conversions. At the touch of a button, staff can now measure quantities by unit, kilo or pallet. This is crucial to ensure they always have enough cooked product in stock to meet orders.
“Raw materials are our biggest single expense,” Carl explains. “Now we can better measure our input and output, we won’t have to hold so much. So instead of holding $1.5 million worth of raw materials at any time, we might be able to drop that by half. That’s going to be a major saving in running costs.”
Errors in orders have been eliminated, stock holding costs are halved, order processing takes minutes instead of hours, and expansion plans are now closer to reality.
The introduction of CRM has made a big difference for Butch’s dispatcher. MYOB Greentree’s Workflow desktop displays all orders nationwide, reducing the processing of orders for packing and delivery from hours to minutes. Productivity has also been boosted in both the finance and sales departments.
“We’ve now got checks and balances in the system, and errors in orders have been eliminated,” Carl says. “Our sales & marketing guy says it’s the best package he’s worked with.”
The quest for export markets is driving big changes at Butch. A new warehouse is being built, to cope with the increase in sales and also to better serve the local market. The company intends implementing Greentree’s Manufacturing module to streamline its operations in anticipation of increased demand.
“MYOB Greentree is going to offer us a path for growth,” Carl concludes.
Across the board, Greentree has enabled an easier flow of information for this plumbing supplies firm.
