With a national distribution network centrally managed from their Melbourne headquarters, inventory control is a critical component of this growing business. Distributing fresh and packaged products to over two and a half thousand cafes, deli’s and supermarkets nationally, from four different distribution centres, Emma & Tom’s needed a business management solution with serious grunt.
Having outgrown MYOB, Emma & Tom’s was struggling under the volume of transactions and inadequate inventory management when they went searching for an integrated solution for their business operations. After considering the capability of Xero, Emma decided they needed a system that could grow with their international ambitions. “Xero gets rave reviews, but we knew its limitations and determined early on that we needed more than the SME accounting packages offered. We needed a solution that would integrate and optimise our operations, allow our workforce to be more flexible, scale as the company grew and offer cloud-based cost benefits by eliminating the need for servers and updates.”
