When Brisbane-based manufacturer of salt water chlorination systems, Australian Innovative Systems (AIS), expanded their business offshore, they required a robust business accounting system, and they found it in Jim2® business accounting software from Happen Business.
During the past decade, AIS has expanded internationally particularly in the field of commercial and resort swimming pools as well as waterslide parks.
Today the company has distributors throughout Australia as well as partners serving markets in Spain, Czech Republic, Russia, Ukraine, Middle East, Korea, Thailand, Indonesia and South America.
AIS used an accounting system that had proven adequate for local operations. However, AIS discovered that expanding offshore required a more robust business system that combined accounting with workflow and operational information reporting.
AIS needed a business accounting software system that could support multiple foreign currency transactions, improved stock control and workflow management including stock serial number tracking.
According to Executive Director Elena Gosse, the previous system was time-consuming and could not provide the information management needed to identify the source and responsibility of operational roadblocks.
AIS explored various options before testing out Jim2® Business Engine from Happen Business and realised that Jim2® could provide it with more flexibility and accurate controls over its manufacturing processes.
Of the implementation process, Gosse said that the migration from MYOB to Jim2® business accounting software was an easy process thanks to Happen Business’ implementation team who had it all up and running with the AIS staff completely trained within a week.
Gosse adds that Jim2® provides complete information about workflow operations from materials ordering, production, sales and marketing, through to shipping and delivery.
“Jim2® allows for accurate recording, documentation and tracking of overseas contracts. The multicurrency feature is so important for our invoicing. Jim2® helps us save time on administration work and concentrate on winning new business overseas.”
