BoosterMYOB Advanced Payroll brings Booster into the cloud and into the future, supporting their payroll team during a time of growth.
Booster needed a new system to streamline their payroll processes and better support their organisation’s growth. Their implementation partner, Kilimanjaro Consulting, was able to offer early access to New Zealand’s newest payroll specific module of MYOB Advanced – MYOB Advanced Payroll.
Who is Booster?
Booster is a Wellington-based financial services company, who has been helping Kiwi’s achieve their financial goals since 1998. They are one of the six Government appointed default KiwiSaver scheme providers and manage over 130,000 investors across KiwiSaver, Superannuation, and Investment Schemes.
What catalysed the switch to MYOB Advanced?
Booster’s old, server-based payroll system lacked the functionality and flexibility that they needed to manage their team. The payroll team had to rely on slow, manual processes – inefficiencies that were especially apparent when the overall Booster team began to grow. The payroll system needed to be manually reconciled against the General Ledger which was both time consuming and error-prone. The team could not see their own leave balances, inundating the payroll team with requests and taking up time on both sides of the team.
What changes followed the decision?
Booster was already familiar with the Kilimanjaro Consulting implementation team, as Kilimanjaro had previously implemented MYOB Advanced Business; improving Booster’s reporting and automating manual processes. As MYOB Advanced Payroll was being introduced to the New Zealand market for the first time, Kilimanjaro Consulting’s strong relationship with MYOB and track record of successful payroll implementations in Australia allowed them to give Booster early access to MYOB Advanced Payroll.
Booster knew that they were already in the best hands with Kilimanjaro Consulting for their MYOB Advanced Payroll implementation. Since the successful implementation, payroll administration time has been cut by up to 50%, a significant saving of both time and cost.
How are they now?
Now, Booster’s 120 strong team can view their leave balances, and make requests without directly affecting the payroll staff. Removing this bottleneck, along with the direct integration to their General Ledger and automations built into the system, has made the payroll team much more efficient. They now have a highly secure (thanks to Two-Factor Authentication) view of the entire organisation – from their core finances all the way across to their people – made possible by MYOB Advanced Business, MYOB Advanced Payroll, and Kilimanjaro.
How do I achieve a successful implementation?
A successful implementation depends on managing 3 critical risks:
- Software Risk
- Implementer risk
- Self-Inflicted Risk
You can reduce your risk by selecting the right implementation partner. Although there are many different partners to choose from, you need the one that will work with you every step of the way.
