The good oil in business

The good oil in business

William Aitken & Co. Ltd had been using the same accounting software for more than 20 years. “ It was a good solid system, but development effort on it had fallen away.”  explains Graham Aitken, Managing Partner
“We decided that it was time to look to change to a system that was designed around, and to take advantage of today’s computer operating systems, and that was also under constant development to provide an extremely full feature-set.” After some industry research, Graham got in touch with Kurt and the team at Brunton and have since taken their operating systems internally to the next level.

“Accredo has helped immensely to streamline our order entry. Our customers typically require similar products on successive orders, and by creating standard orders for individual customers which we can then merely adjust each time they order, we’ve saved a considerable amount of on-going time.” Notes Aitken, “Multi-currency handling has also been another hugely accommodating tool, as an importer it is vital that multiple currencies are handled completely accurately in our accounts and Accredo does this seamlessly”

“When we installed and transferred to Accredo, one of my greatest hesitations was how we would go about interfacing with our supermarket customers and third party logistics providers. Brunton were absolute experts at this, they already knew the people involved that they had to deal with, and they knew exactly what was required. It was all done with the minimum of fuss. You couldn’t ask for better than that” adds Aitken.

“Learning the new functions and operations of Accredo was to be honest, quick and painless. Accredo is extremely intuitive, with an attractive interface. That coupled with the ready availability of Brunton has made learning easy”. Having now been working with Accredo internally for 2 years. Graham and his team work ongoing with Brunton to ensure their accounting software package is utilized to the best of its abilities. “Brunton supply the whole package. By that I mean not just Accredo (which incidentally they know inside-out), but when we have needed it they have provided us with office support staff to help us use Accredo as we require, and have also helped us create better office procedures. They have become a very valuable support provider to us.”

    "I highly recommend Brunton as a trusted business partner, the calibre of their technicians is second to none. They definitely have a can do attitude and they work with our business to come up with amazing solutions. The solutions Brunton have built for us have changed the way we operate our business.”

    “We went with Brunton and Accredo because we felt this best suited the FPS business.  FPS has a large customer base including the Fishing and Forestry sectors with its Head Office in Nelson and branches in Greymouth & Blenheim. Being able to pick different Accredo modules to suit our needs was a must and the ability to write and design our own forms and reports has also proven beneficial”

    “Accredo has certainly saved us a lot of time internally and has given us better than we could have imagined information and reporting for our monthly board meetings too. I would recommend the integration to Accredo’s accounting software for any business, its adaptable, easy to work with and you can pull excellent reports to suit your specific requirements.”
