A bit about the client…
What did the client need?
Ice Australasia were looking for consistent and high quality bookkeeping. They also wanted a team they could communicate with regularly -something they hadn’t really had previously.
They also asked us to assist them in migrating from MYOB to Xero.
What were the main challenges of the job?
The first issue arose when we found out their bookkeeping had previously been outsourced to Sri Lanka. So there was no real handover and little information to go on.
The second challenge compounded the difficulty of the first. At the time of the request, the client was moving into a new warehouse and needed the bookkeeping job to be done in record time. It was also the middle of the financial year, so we had to deal with hundreds of transactions in addition to integrating new software.
How we tackled those challenges
Fortunately, our bookkeepers are highly experienced and have worked with different amounts of financial information. Our team broke down the necessary tasks and worked diligently through the minimal information available to establish policies and procedures.
We also had the necessary resources to get this job done at short notice. Members of our team are certified Xero and MYOB consultants and understand what needs to be done on both sides to ensure an easy transition.
And lastly, we developed a customised excel template to assist with importing transactions into the new systems.
And the end result was…
The team at Ice Australasia were very impressed with how we handled this first high pressure job and we now work with them on a weekly basis on a wide range of tasks. Recently we celebrated working together for 6 years.
