Established over 30 years ago, Cotswold Furniture is a NSW-based importer, collector and distributor of international furniture brands. Having undergone significant growth over the years, Cotswold now boasts four outlets and a network of 20 dealers Australia-wide.

Cotswold successfully used MYOB Premier for many years before the system became too limited to handle Cotswold’s demands. What Cotswold Furniture needed was a new management system that could share information between locations; provide multi-currency capabilities and show real-time inventory numbers.

With a failed attempt at implementing MYOB Exo, it was necessary for Cotswold to turn to Kilimanjaro Consulting to turn the situation around.

“It’s no surprise that larger businesses have inherent complexities within them that need to be supported by an ERP system. In understanding Cotswold’s specific business requirements and mapping MYOB Exo to these, we were able to successfully re-implement MYOB Exo for Cotswold”, said Kilimanjaro’s Director of Operations, Jason Fegan.

Jason continued, “the great thing about implementing MYOB Exo to suit Cotswold’s needs was that the system began working for them instead of vice-versa. Exo is so configurable that Cotswold did not have to stick to set functionality- with a bit of customisation they had everything they needed.”

What made the implementation a success for Cotswold Furniture was the support and understanding from the Kilimanjaro team. Whenever in need of support or to discuss ideas, the Cotswold team knew the team at Kilimanjaro was only a phone call away.
