ERP for the Wine Industry

From the Yarra to the Barossa and beyond, we’ve carved ourselves out a nice little niche for successfully implementing MYOB ERP systems into wineries over the past 20 years. And we’ve learned quite a few things along the way that only come from first-hand experience.

The wine industry, above all other industries, is as unique as a bottle of 1951 Penfolds Grange Hermitage. So finding the right business management system is a considerably difficult task. The market is seemingly flooded with systems claiming to do everything and anything.

However, they are seldom integrated. And that’s where the true benefits of an ERP system like MYOB Advanced and MYOB Exo are truly realised. Find out how wineries across Australia have benefited from ERP solutions.

“We were relying too heavily on spreadsheets to read raw data and weren’t getting information out quickly enough. It was a nightmare.”

TWO HANDS WINES

No one said the wine industry was easy to crack. But when you have the right product, success can flow like a velvety Malbec. Or a crisp and utterly delicious Sauvignon Blanc – whatever your preference.

For South Australian winemakers Two Hands Wines, their rise to prominence came at a rapid rate. From winning award after award to gaining recognition as one of the true industry leaders worldwide.

(Have you tried their 2012 Gnarly Dudes Shiraz? The proof is in the pudding. Or rather, the bottle in this case).

The Stress of Success

A good problem to have, but a problem none the less – success is often followed by rapid growth. Unfortunately this places enormous pressure on business processes.

More sales, more invoicing, more stock to manage, more staff and complex warehouse logistics to name a few.

When Two Hands Wines started to feel this pressure, they began reviewing industry-specific business management software. It didn’t take long to realise this was not the best option. They struggled to find one which covered all their ‘must haves’.

Prior to MYOB Exo, they were using MYOB Premier for inventory and accounting, MYOB Retail Manager at POS, and reporting in Excel with in-house spreadsheets and databases.

To sum up, it took a long time to get anything done.

Their systems were not speaking to one another which resulted in everything taking longer to do. Or in more technical terms, they lacked integration.

They also didn’t have CRM in place.

Axsys was able to provide a solution to all their problems by implementing MYOB Exo. As a result, integration was no longer an issue and they got the CRM system they so desperately needed. In addition, this gave them the ability to capture and maintain data, create marketing classes, and much more.

Above all, their entire business processes were optimised – from the vineyard to the customer.
