‘’ACE+ has been Perth’s trusted plumbing, Electrical, Gas, Roof plumbing & property maintenance professionals for over 5 years. ACE+ differentiates itself on service and quality with professionals from ACE+ you can be sure the job gets done quickly and properly.’’
During 2019, ACE+ began reviewing options for business management software (specifically cloud ERP software) to find the right platform. The company was reevaluating its direction, looking to increase its competitive advantage and support the desired growth that this forward-thinking company was targeting.
In late 2019, a long-standing customer of JCuve Solutions (thanks Josco) made a recommendation for the ACE+ team to contact us and discuss the company’s need for alternative software to support its growth ambitions. ACE+ also wanted better insight into operations due to the company's MYOB accounting and Aroflow job management systems no longer being adequate to cope with its increasing requirements and reactive business model.
The company did a whole lot of research into systems and quickly discounted many options - even some big players - due to the complexity of functionality on offer. It was our pleasure to introduce the ACE+ guys to our combined NetSuite and Riyo platforms, tailored to deliver service-based businesses greater visibility and control across operations, while streamlining business processes.
"Projects, operations, and progress of each job can be viewed in real-time. This delivers critical insights to not only make on-the-spot, informed decisions but also to keep abreast of overall spend on the job."
For a service-based company, there were many advantages to opt for a seamlessly-integrated NetSuite and Riyo solution. On the NetSuite side, ACE+ can benefit from advanced financial capabilities, resource allocation, sophisticated project management, job costing and much more as part of one unified solution with the main added advantage of Riyo (which has been specifically built and designed for service-based companies like ACE+). As mentioned, being reactive is a top priority for the ACE+ team in an ever-changing industry. The team was already delivering expertise in many sectors and they needed a system to suit.
NetSuite is a system that's born in the cloud and can be accessed anywhere at any time - on almost any device with internet connectivity. The cloud ERP system is set to allow ACE+, and stakeholders of the company's services, absolute real-time information whenever they need it. Projects, operations, and progress of each job can be viewed in real-time. This delivers critical insights to not only make on-the-spot, informed decisions but also to keep abreast of overall spend on the job. Management of profitability and further opportunity to drive margins becomes the norm - rather than the exception when running disparate, legacy systems.
"Riyo allows tradies to seamlessly communicate directly with customers through the app, place stock orders, and see when service resources will arrive on-site using Riyo’s innovative GPS tracking. The information is all in real-time, and all available within the one, mobile-first platform."
When the team viewed our Riyo solution for the first time, they realised this is exactly what was needed in the business. Riyo allows tradies to seamlessly communicate directly with customers through the app, place stock orders, and see when service resources will arrive on-site using Riyo’s innovative GPS tracking. The information is all in real-time, and all available within the one, mobile-first platform.
It was truly satisfying to have interviewed each department of the ACE+ team during our comprehensive discovery sessions to identify and understand their roles and drivers in order to map out what areas our key functions would bring to them in their roles. This was met with absolute relief that they were leaving behind so much duplication of effort and stepping towards working smarter, not harder with a combined NetSuite and Riyo offering in place.
On the back of this success, I am keen to discuss where I can help organisations with similar struggles due to running legacy systems, I would be delighted to set up a no-strings-attached 30-minute session with you to show-case how the NetSuite and Riyo technology can streamline business processes and provide excellence in service delivery.
