How Are These Businesses Succeeding with ERP?

How Are These Businesses Succeeding with ERP?

If you're thinking about ERP software, you've probably done some research on the ERP options out there. There are quite a few different vendors, each making promises around their software's particular strength - whether that's CRM, inventory, sales and marketing, or other areas. Not only are there many vendors out there, but there's also different types of ERP systems, such as traditional on-premise solutions (requiring installation on locally kept server equipment) and cloud-based solutions. See our whitepaper about on-premise vs cloud ERP solutions for more detail on the costs comparison.

An important part of the review process when comparing ERP systems is getting proof of the solution. And this comes from the successes that other businesses have had using the business software you're considering.

Any software vendor with a love for empowering their customers and celebrating their successes is worth having a conversation with. And also worth finding out what business strategies and improved processes made the big differences in those customers' business growth.

Here are some of the customers for whom we're proud to have implemented NetSuite and our own JCurve ERP small business edition of NetSuite. They've seen significant growth and are continuing to build stronger, more successful businesses.

 

Case Study - Emma & Tom's

Emma & Tom's are a nationally recognised brand producing nutritious, minimally processed food and drink products. They'd outgrown MYOB and needed a solution that could keep up with their distribution of fresh and packaged products to over two and a half thousand cafes, delis and supermarkets nationally from four different distribution centres.

They used technology to drive over 30% year-on-year business growth through a scalable ERP system capable of simplifying their businesses complexity and streamlining their operations.

Case Study - Foster Packaging

Foster Packaging a fast growing company providing high-tech packaging and printing solutions, found their goals of delivering quality products within tight timeframes becoming challening.

They invested in JCurve ERP to gain improved sales tracking and ROI measurement and functionality to support their tradeshow requirements around entering prospect details directly at events. They also gained the ability to set custom pricing, track sales and ROI measurements and set reminders for prospect contact follow-ups.

 

Case Study - Life Interiors

Life.interiors designer furniture both online and in-store. With over 5000 SKUs and over 100 suppliers, they were looking for an ERP software solution that was flexible, scalable and could handle the growth they were experiencing.

Case Study - Lipp's Bulk Super

Lipp's Bulk Super started nearly 50 years ago as a small family business, selling fertiliser. They provide a complex mix of rural products and services to the agricultural community in Australia. With over 70,000 transactions per year, they were growing and needed faster processing with reduced manual keying (and rekeying). Since implementing JCurve ERP in 2012, they've seen revenue growth of over 86%.

 

Case Study - MooGoo Skincare

MooGoo Skincare operate multiple brands including their vegan skincare brand, A Bit Hippy, and their pet-care brand, Dr Zoo. They were looking for a system to keep up with their rapid growth and empower their staff to become even more efficient. They needed an eCommerce portal, automated re-ordering for their stockists, financial reporting that would segment between brands, stockists and locations, CRM across their three brands, and real-time data for their sales reps to utilise and deliver and improved customer experience.

MooGoo have increased their staff from 12 to 38 since implementing JCurve ERP and cut their data entry in half, while increasing their productivity.

 

Case Study - Kleenmaid

Kleenmaid appliances first came to Australia in 1984 with a focus on exceeding customer expectations. With a brand relaunch in 2009, they experienced rapid growth and needed a unified ERP solution that would support their needs including an live internet ordering portal for their distributors around Australia.

The technical capabilities of JCurve ERP allowed them to dramatically increase efficiency, picking and packing goods within 15 minutes of orders being place. Kleenmaid continue to be a true success story, utilising multi-site warehousing capabilities, real-time order visibility and automated alerts to drive efficiency and deliver an exceptional customer experience.

 

Case Study - Kokonut Pacific

Kokonut Pacific produce and sell a wide range of coconut-based products. Supporting production in the Pacific Islands, their premium grade coconut products are based around a social enterprise model. Kokonut Pacific invest and work with local communites to help build sustainable enterprises.

Their legacy systems for customer service, financial and payroll management were holding back growth with a lack of integration across the business, resulting in inadeqaute inventory management and no visibility of sales trends or forecasts.

Since implementing JCurve ERP, Kokonut Pacific have seen growth of around 30% year-on-year and doubled their staffing, warehousing and coconut oil sales.
