AFI Branding – Client Story
Managing the production of such a complex and customisable product can be a real challenge. To support that AFI Branding created their own custom production system called Console. It’s the system that’s at the heart of what they do. Unfortunately that system didn’t handle the inventory management and costings side of the production process. That gap had initially been plugged with a combination of MYOB Accounting and good old fashioned Excel spreadsheets.
Although this worked it was far from reliable and created friction in the entire production process. Brendon Rowse, AFI Branding Managing Director, knew there had to be a smarter way of handling their inventory.
What Was the Problem
Adding real time inventory capabilities to their Console system means they can now track every raw material and finished product with ease. No more jumping between different spreadsheets to try to get a handle on stock levels. And, the real-time element is huge for them. In the past, they had to wait until the ‘end of period’ to get accurate reporting which of course, in many cases was too late to make any corrective decisions.
AFI Branding still get to work with the familiar interface of their Console system. Now though, it’s enhanced with the DEAR Inventory platform which underpins every aspect of their inventory management and reporting. For Brendon and the team, that means winning back more time to grow the business. As a result they can continue their proud tradition of innovation and flying the flag for their entire industry.View AFI Branding website
