  13. 13. SOLUTION
  14. 14. Solution – Blind Matrix Risks New to Australian Market Not as mature in some aspects - open to change Working with them to modify product to suit They understood Cloud model better that any other supplier Ecommerce bolt on Module
  15. 15. Why Cloud – For Us Don’t have to worry about hardware Don’t have to worry about backup Easy access (from any location), real time quoting and synchronisation LOW cost of entry and user monthly charge We get the benefits of other enhancements All upgrades are automatic If the system doesn’t work out or something better comes along our entry costs are not significant to try something new Quick deployment time Links to Xero Accounting
  16. 16. Next Steps Converting supplier price list to system Operational by end of month End Goals Quoting - quicker, consistent, accurate Less paper handling, less duplication CRM –what’s happening in our sales chain Better picture of what’s required/expected by when Accuracy ---> quality Look at selling the product to other non-competitive company’s in the Australian market
