This Success Story begins with a son’s desire to satisfy his father’s cravings for good English sausage. Denis Dimond Rawlins’ unsuccessful search throughout Malaysia for authentic English bangers for his dad, birthed Dimond Design Sdn Bhd and their Rawlins brand sausages.
The hand made Rawlins succulent sausages are available in quality super markets and specialty food shops throughout the Klang Valley. Now dad can enjoy a traditional butchered British banger whenever he gets the hankering!
“I’m not a financial controller, but I generate monthly financial reports with very little query from our auditor and all accounts are balanced”.
The Key Challenges
Coming from a non-accounting, non-IT background, Denis was looking for accounting software “that he could learn and use himself as well as pass onto his non-accounting background staff with confidence”. Being a small company with few admin staff, it would be important that if someone was out sick, that another staff could fill in easily.
Denis describes himself as a very “organized and tidy person”, desirous of keeping his accounts and business well organized and up-to-date. Because Dimond Designs is a food manufacturing business, all the ingredient inventory levels and total cost of finished product would need to be tracked and up-to-date.
Reena Chew, an MYOB Professional Partner at SeaSoft Sdn Bhd, was introduced to Denis by his auditor firm. Reena set-up the company chart of accounts, product code, inventory auto-build and customized forms (invoices, purchase orders, etc). Then Reena trained Denis to fully utilize the day to day accounting features as well as the accounts analyze features like receivables and payables, daily company performance status, cash flow position and monthly financial reports. In turn, Denis trained Teresa (staff person with non-accounting background). Teresa states “I’m not a financial controller, but I generate monthly financial reports with very little query from our auditor and all accounts are balanced”.
Denis says that “MYOB Accounting is perfect for my business, it has helped my business to really take off. Rushing off to see customers, bang! I can see what they owe me. The Auto-Build feature keeps track of my inventory levels. The final product costing is automatically up-dated when the purchase price of any ingredient has increased. I am looking forward to using MYOB Premier utilizing multi-currency in my new company.”
Now that is easy. MYOB easy. MYOB smarter.
