More than just Finance needed

"We offer a highly customisable product to our customers," says Finance Manager, Gavin Anderson. "We're one of the world's top five synthetic turf manufacturers and while we've expanded into the global market in recent years, we pride ourselves in having the local knowledge to deliver a very personal level of customer service."

[rd_line line_pos="center" margin_top="10"]" We looked at Microsoft Dynamics NAV and SAP, but we wanted something that worked straight out of the box," Gavin explains. "This was important to us because historically we'd had few IT processes and didn't want to face a lengthy system design phase."

"MYOB Greentree ERP was a logical progression for us because with Endeavour's assistance we were able to migrate data easily from the old system, which was reaching the end of its lifespan and which Endeavour had supported for us for some years."

With business growing rapidly, Tiger Turf wanted more than just a finance package, it wanted a business management system that all its staff could access. Since implementing Greentree it had added sales and processing, manufacturing warehouse bin Management and Workflow.

"It's working extremely well,: Gavin enthuses. "We wish we'd made the switch sooner".[testimonials_ctn][testimonial_sc author="Gavin Anderson" a_info="Finance Manager, Tiger Turf"]"With Endeavour's assistance, we were able to migrate data easily from the old system".[/testimonial_sc][/testimonials_ctn][rd_line line_pos="center" margin_top="10"][rd_images_gallery images="25155"][rd_line line_pos="center" margin_top="10"][rd_line line_pos="center" margin_top="10"]Highlighting the impact that the implementation of Greentree has made, now, more than 40 people regularly access Greentree while Tiger Turf's legacy system had just five users. In addition to the Finance team, users include people from Sales, Logistics, Production, Operations and Maintenance.

More functions, many more users

Most recently, Greentree's Customer Relationship Management (CRM) module was added, replacing a previous separate Microsoft CRM system.[testimonials_ctn][testimonial_sc author="Tim Ryley" a_info="Endeavour, CEO"]"Integrated CRM has enabled Tiger Turf to improve processing time by reviewing its processes and enhancing the system with added functionality," days Tim Ryley. "This has resulted in a much more robust system with checks in place to ensure no customer is forgotten or lost. Together, we are all looking to further timesaving improvements across the business with the introduction of Greentree's browser capabilities, which will increase productivity."[/testimonial_sc][/testimonials_ctn][rd_line line_pos="center" margin_top="10"]Read the full story on how Tiger Turf found greater transparency and efficiency download here the PDF>>>
