Client: Maria’s Pasta / Maria’s Select Foods
Product: MYOB Greentree
Industry: Food and Beverage
What Has ERP Software delivered:
Large quantities of Maria’s Pasta products are sold to caterers and wholesalers throughout Australia and export markets, in order to keep up with the demand its distribution system has to be flexible to its production style.
General Manager Paul Italiano says that MYOB Greentree has enabled them to take Maria’s Pasta to the next level. “We have been able to re-engineer our sales process, but with the production process…the system, unlike many others I looked at, was flexible enough to fit around us, rather than the other way round. It’s offered us improvements and efficiencies, without forcing us to re-engineer.”
With customers waiting for an immediate response to queries, efficient access to information is essential. Greentree provides an on-screen order inquiry facility that allows the team to find the status of orders by customer number, sales order number or the customer’s purchase order reference. Orders, packing slips and invoices can then be easily ‘drilled down’ for viewing the complete details and status of each line.
The Greentree Workflow module then provides a dynamic desktop view, with information updated to all relevant desktops across the organisation as soon as it is entered. Debtor information can be included in financial desktop objects, making debtor management even easier and more efficient. Customer account reconciliations were lengthy and had to be re-keyed…now there is a more user-friendly system, saving administation time. Commenting on the quicker month-end processing, Paul explains, “Being date driven, Greentree is delightful! We have actually saved one day a month. It has taken a lot of pressure off.”
