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As you well know, the competitive edge does not come from using rigid, outdated ERP systems.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.

Aged Care Software for a Growing MarketIt’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.
Seven considerations for the ERP evaluation processSelecting a new ERP (enterprise resource planning) solution can be a large undertaking. There are many factors that need to be considered, and there is a lot on the line–for both the business’ potential for growth, and the people overseeing the selection process. It is very important that the selection process offers evidence of due diligence. But how do you know what that due diligence is? What are some of the processes that can help ensure you are getting what you need out of the selection process?
Challenges in Aged Care can present Real Opportunities for InnovationPresent challenges facing the aged care sector can seem overwhelming at times, however, for the savvy organisation they can represent opportunities for innovation and growth.
Improving Quality of Aged Care through SoftwareIn its discussion paper titled Let’s talk about quality the Australian Government’s Aged Care Quality Agency (AACQA) made steps to establish and promote ideas of quality to providers of aged care services. This can have several perceived knock-on effects for your aged care software selection. As a key facilitator of aged care services, your software solution is a serious investment in your ongoing success.
Five Reasons to Move your Aged Care Software to the CloudTechnology 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.
How Effective ERP Training Can Help Promote Innovation and GrowthIn this age of innovation, how can organisations position themselves to promote future growth? As a substantial source of insight, your employees are responsible for both implementing business processes and contributing to ongoing business intelligence. So when implementing a new ERP (enterprise resource planning) solution, effective training can contribute positively to business outcomes and potential for future growth.
How Manufacturers Drive Growth with ERP SoftwareManufacturing in Australia and New Zealand gets a pretty tough wrap. Sure, there are competitive forces from international manufacturers which continue to pose significant challenges for our industry, but I believe there is plenty to keep our industry buoyant about the future.
The Olympics Reminded me Why Aged Care Software Planning is ImportantWatching the Olympics over the last few weeks acted as a scary reminder of how quickly the years fly by. It does not feel like 16 years ago that the nation was a buzz with the Sydney Olympics and now here we are waving goodbye to Rio. So, when I was reading some data this week on population projections, it didn’t feel out of place to consider projections for the next twenty-five to fifty years to be relevant for what we are doing today.
How ERP Software Can Make Your Business More ConnectedAt times I feel like the business world is simultaneously becoming more connected and less connected. Technology has revolutionised the business world in numerous ways, such as breaking down geographical and language barriers. This opens up enormous potential for business to be done on a scale unlike any generation before us. However, poor use of technology can also breed habits of anti-socialness which can cause us to miss out on innovation resulting from collaboration.
The Importance of Aged Care Financial Management ToolsManaging finances for an aged care organisation is a tough task. Dealing with funding restrictions, changes to government legislation, staff issues, and general business pressures doesn’t exactly lack in the challenge department.
