Before switching to MYOB EXO Business, Australian Uniform Service used Alliant (an industry specific solution) for most of its business. Not to mention MYOB AccountRight for creditors, payroll and reporting – with BudgetLink as well. It was all too much. “It was very frustrating collating three systems,” said Jan McIntyre, the company’s Financial Administrator. “Reporting was time consuming and needed to be improved.”
When making large changes in business processes it’s often valuable to have a helping hand, and Australian Uniform Service found a great partner in Momentum Software Solutions. According to Jan, Momentum were instrumental in helping her company implement MYOB EXO. “We had an initial meeting so Momentum could understand our business, our objectives and specifc software needs. We determined that EXO would be a good ft and could solve a lot of our pain points. We realised it would also be a good foundation for future growth.
EXO is extremely configurable to individual businesses, and that’s what helped Australian Uniform Service tackle its unique accounting problems – such as depreciation of uniforms. “Running multiple branches or outlets is very common, but not well handled in off-the-shelf software. EXO handles it well, and with good control,” said Jan. When it comes to streamlined processes, EXO has helped Jan save hours juggling several different disparate products.
“We now have one system that handles our accounting, payroll, HR and assets needs. The difference is huge. We have dramatically reduced the time taken to prepare management reports and have real-time visibility.”
