Plastics Manufacturers

Ostendo Software - our new Favourite

Case Study:- Cutcher & Neale BSSS Team
Date:- January 2010

Favorite Plastics is a privately owned family business which has been trading since 1997 servicing Australia from the Hunter Valley. Favorite Plastics manufacture, import and distribute a range of plastics bags and other synthetic products for a variety of industries and applications.

Favorite Plastics were using MYOB as their accounting system with Word, Excel & Access to run the operational side of the business. With over 1,500 inventory items and an ever growing number of custom products, Managing Director Justin Yates recognised that the business needed to manage business operations more efficiently and have greater business control.

“Our business philosophy is based on first class customer service and an extensive products range at competitive prices. As the business has experienced significant growth in recent years we needed a more efficient way of streamlining business processes and managing day to day operations. The key areas we were looking to address as part of the software implementation included workflow operations, managing purchases in foreign currencies, discounts and discount groups, stock replenishments and landed costs. It was also important to have a system that seamlessly integrated with our existing accounting software, MYOB.

After analysing a range of products in the marketplace we decided on Ostendo for a number of reasons – it was cost effective, flexible and adaptable to our processes and future requirements.

It was also important that the consultant we engaged with had extensive experience and strong product knowledge. We felt confident engaging with the team at Cutcher & Neale who have built a professional reputation from successfully servicing businesses for over 50 years. Not only were they able to provide us with expert advice on how to make Ostendo work for our business, they deliver service and support in a timely and professional manner. We can already see the ROI (Return on Investment) within the business.

We would highly recommend engaging with the team at Cutcher & Neale who we have found to be highly skilled, understanding of our business needs and professional in all our dealings”.
