Enprise delivered a customised, fully automated MYOB Exo Business solution for leading machine tools importer and wholesaler Global Machine Tools in just two months.
Auckland-based Global Machine Tools is a leading importer, wholesaler and service agent of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machine tools, their associated spare parts and the tooling they consume; supplying and servicing the engineering and manufacturing industries. Established in 1997, the company services around 600 customers across New Zealand from its purpose-built facility.
Global Machine Tools had been using MYOB Premier to invoice its sales, but this addressed only invoicing needs. The rest of the company’s processes were manual and time consuming – and there was no stock control or visibility. In addition, with several Australian customers and all of its suppliers based offshore, Global Machine Tools needed a system sophisticated enough to manage multiple currency payment processing, multiple foreign currency bank accounts, the ability to purchase currency at FX spot rates with loss/gain reporting, and automatically-correcting journals.
A single, automated system
Managing Director Christian Hillary wanted one central, automated system that could handle everything across the company’s various divisions.
“We’re not accountants, so we need a system that is simple, easy and intuitive to use,” Christian says.
Christian says he evaluated various packages but ultimately chose the MYOB Exo Business package Enprise presented because Enprise demonstrated value for money and a ﬂexible system that would be easy to use.
“They inspired conﬁdence in their company and people. They were really easy to deal with and gave us conﬁdence that the solution would work,” he says.
“That wasn’t the case for other solutions and companies. Some wanted to charge us to review our system and recommend a solution – but not Enprise. Enprise made the process simple. We told them what we wanted to be able to do, they put a solution together for us and it just worked.”
Enprise customised the MYOB Exo Business system to suit Global Machine Tools’ specific needs, recommending MYOB Exo Finance and Job & Project Costing for the company’s service department. Enprise took
the system live within two months of demonstrating it.
On time and on budget
The implementation was smooth and hassle-free, meeting agreed timeframes and budgets.
Enprise provided full training as part of the implementation process, giving the Global Machine Tools team hands-on experience in operating the system.
Christian says Enprise delivered exactly as agreed.
“Our implementation manager Sarah Loveys inspired confidence. I was worried about the big step change we were making from a manual system to an automated system but Sarah reassured me. After the training and implementation everything was fine. We didn’t need to take on extra resources to help with the new system,” he says.
“The system is so flexible and customisable, which is a huge plus for us. We now have a solid platform we can easily change as needed.”
A platform for future growth
Global Machine Tools now has a smart, specifically customised, fully automated online system with high visibility of all information (for example enquiry information, stock, codes), which has simplified, streamlined and improved the way the company conducts its business.
Christian says Enprise’s solution enables the company to keep track of the rapidly growing business – and continue to provide cutting-edge services and support to customers.
“We know where we are now day-to-day. Before, we weren’t able to do things like reporting, costing, checking stock and price lists. Now we can. Enprise collaborated with us to create and implement a business solution that fits our needs really well. Everything just works. We also know that if we need help or training, we can simply call Enprise and they’ll be there. Everything is just so much easier and better all round – and that’s the bottom line.”
