Vetpak enlisted the help of No Fuss Business to help them get up and running with Unleashed Software. Now, they’ve seen a huge improvements in stock visibility, sales forecasting and have a better idea of how their business is tracking at any given moment in time.
Here’s their story.
I’m Steve Atfield, director of Vetpak — New Zealand’s leading manufacturer and distributor of animal health and animal care products.
We were looking for an inventory management software that would unite all the important aspects of our business: manufacturing, distribution, sales and accounting. We found that Unleashed was ticking all the boxes for us going forward. It even integrated with Xero!
Setting up Unleashed
Working with an Implementation Partner was the only way to go. We chose No Fuss Business because they have the expertise and knowledge to link all the aspects of our business together; the team even had an accounting background.
“No Fuss Business gave us ideas about future-proofing out business and how, with Unleashed, we could look to the future, expand and progress our business going forward.”
For us, not having an Implementation Partner would have been a paddle-less canoe up a river! It’d be unbelievably difficult trying to bring all the business streams together in one. I thoroughly recommend using an Implementation Partner like No Fuss Business to install Unleashed.
Reaping the benefits of perfectly integrated software
Since going live on April 1, we’ve seen an improvement in our ability to forecast and plan. We can see what ingredients we have on hand for manufacturing and forecast our sales ahead. When pricing our products, we can also make better pricing decisions by drilling down to see that our margins are sufficient. Thanks to Unleashed, we’ve been able to get a better snapshot of the business at any one point in time.
“We’ve found the Unleashed really helps you look at the nuts and bolts of the business.”
Geared for future growth
Athough Vetpak might only have 11 full-time staff spread across the country, we’re rapidly growing with Unleashed.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Unleashed. It doesn’t matter if you’re one person, two people or a hundred. The Unleashed system can be tailored to your business, fits really well and is customised to what you need.
