    When growth is the primary focus for so many Australian manufacturing and distribution companies, it means that you and your competitors will each be looking for the competitive edge in this shared pursuit.

    As you well know, the competitive edge does not come from using rigid, outdated ERP systems. Your ERP system should open the door to true systems integration, user interaction and flexible business processes. It should not place unrealistic constraints on how you need to do business.

    Therefore, if the capability of your current system can’t meet those needs, then you can’t afford to stay with it any longer.

    • Facilitating Growth Through Software for Aged Care

      Fostering growth for an aged care organisation in Australia has a unique set of challenges. Funding restrictions, attracting and retaining the right staff, and changes to government legislation are just some of the hurdles that you are likely to face on your path forward. Therefore, when growth is high on the agenda, particularly if you are operating in a competitive market, you need everything working in your favour.

    • Achieving Effective Collaboration through Social ERP Software
      Since the beginning of time humans have been collaborating. The simple concept of working together to achieve an outcome exists all around us, every day. The real challenge isn’t to collaborate, but to do so in a way that generates great results.
      To grow in a competitive market, manufacturers and distributors should do whatever they can to encourage and facilitate collaboration between their stakeholders. One particular way they can achieve this is through their ERP software.

    • Aged Care Software for a Growing Market
      It’s a new financial year here in Australia, a chance to grow, improve, and succeed. Like always, there are known and unknown elements that will present challenges along the way, but with an optimistic outlook, you have a chance to take some big steps forward. From speaking to our clients, we understand the common desire to grow, and with our ageing population, aged care is hardly a shrinking market. For those organisations that can adequately prepare for growth and take advantage of the opportunities that come their way, the upsides are significant.

    • Why Mobility is an Important Component of an Effective ERP Software Solution
      Whether you are on the train, in line at the café, or at the footy, look around and you will see people on their smartphones or tablets. The Deloitte Mobile Consumer Survey 2015 reports that there are approximately fifteen million smartphones in use in Australia, resulting in 440 million daily glances at our devices. Effective ERP SoftwareThis broad usage of mobile technology affects our purchasing behavior and expectations, whether in our personal lives, or business lives. We have become so accustomed to being able to access information on the fly that we naturally look for user friendly business systems that match our experiences with consumer technology. Therefore, it is no wonder businesses across the country are embracing mobility.

    • Is Your Wholesale Distribution Software Holding You Back?
      I can’t think of many more demanding environments than those experienced by the modern day wholesale distributor. It’s a challenging marketplace with high customer expectations, and tight margins.As a result, successful operators in this space are always on the lookout for a competitive edge. Continually improving warehousing practices, adopting better transport solutions, constantly upgrading technology, and developing higher performing teams, are all elements in the mix for those wanting to reach their full potential. 

    • 6 Reasons to Change Your view of Cloud ERP Software
      I remember a conversation I had with a friend, some eight or so years ago now, about his concerns with storing personal data in the cloud. He was worried about his family photos being somewhere ‘up there’ for anyone to get access to–I think it’s fair to say he wasn’t alone with this concern.

      Security was one of the primary hurdles the cloud and Software as a Service (SaaS) movement has had to overcome in its rise in adoption. Today however, in both business and personal markets, attitudes and awareness have changed dramatically.

    • Five Reasons to Move your Aged Care Software to the Cloud
      Technology moves at the blink of an eye. Last week we were addicted to space invaders, yesterday we got dial up in the office, and today our kids want virtual reality headsets for their smartphones. Well, it feels like that anyway. When the future manages to keep serving up such amazing technological advances, it is important that the choices you make today, don’t serve to place unnecessary restrictions on your organisation in the years to come.

    • Why Aged Care Software Integration is so Important
      I feel that terms such as integration and best practice fall victim to being part of a collection of over used business jargon. Unfortunately, when terms like this are thrown around too much we can become numb to instances of legitimate use. Hopefully that hasn’t happened to a level that has you ignoring the importance of aged care software integration, because doing so can have significant impacts. Let me explain why.

    • It’s Time to Expect More from your ERP Software in Australia
      I am sure we have all been in a situation where we have heard someone comment: “we’ve always done it that way.” It’s a seemingly innocent remark, yet should prick up the ears of a progressive CEO.  Even if it is not an expressed element of a company’s culture, the smaller, less obvious existence of complacency could still have a detrimental impact on a company’s overall performance.

    • Why your Software Should Comply with Aged Care Legislation

      When speaking to our customers across independent living, residential aged care and community care organisations, one of the common messages we hear is that they consider changes to aged care legislation to be one of their biggest challenges. 

      Alongside limited funding and having enough of the right human resources, these components can collectively present significant success barriers to growth. 

      Therefore, if growth is going to occur, you need to look for effective means to improve productivity, and in many ways, your aged care software can form part of the answer.
