Continued Business Flow With Greentree
Distributing a wide range of valves, pipe fittings and plumbing hardware, Hydroflow has a presence throughout New Zealand. They have built an excellent reputation in water reticulation, backflow prevention and farm water solutions.
Growth Generates Need
As Hydroflow got bigger over the years, its accounting and data requirements also increased. Around the middle of 2002, financial controller Les Young decided the company had finally outgrown its incumbent package, Attache.
He looked around at the alternatives, including Exonet and Exchequer. But Young eventually settled on Greentree. “It was the best fit for our business, with additional features that the others didn’t have,” he says.
After a painless transition, Greentree went live at Hydroflow in September 2002 and now has a total of twelve users across both the North and South Island.
Young has been impressed by its capabilities.“I like the processing of sales orders, its reporting abilities, the ease of getting information out of it — detailed information is very good — IT processing and general functionality is very slick.”
Greentree CRM module provides a solution that can be easily tailored to suit most businesses, with seamless integration into the core Greentree financial and distribution modules. Hydroflow has also purchased the CRM module, which they feel should be a great management tool to help with its marketing function.

“I like the processing of sales orders, its reporting abilities, the ease of getting information out of it — detailed information is very good — IT processing and general functionality is very slick.”
Young also appreciates the way Greentree can handle a large data file. “We use the same data file from year to year, so the size of it increases constantly. But with Greentree we have been able to retain all the information in a very detailed format.”
Across the board, Greentree has enabled an easier flow of information for this plumbing supplies firm.
