based manufacturing and importing company, in
itís third generation, is one of New Zealandís
leading suppliers to the hardware trade for door
and cabinet hardware, while also providing
wooden components to New Zealandís furniture
For GD Rutter, the need to move from their
existing accounting system was sparked when it
became apparent that not only was their
DOS-based software difficult to maintain, but
the vendor was withdrawing support without
offering a Windows version.
Along with two other
software providers, Velocity Group was
approached to propose a solution. After meeting
with the Managing Director to determine the
business reuirements, the team knew that
PRONTO-Xi would fit the bill. A key factor for
GD Rutter was ensuring the system they installed
would not only meet their immediate needs, but
also be able to grow with their company in the
long term, a strength that PRONTO-Xi is able to
provide itís users.
While system longevity was an issue, GD Rutter
was also concerned with post-implementation
service, quality of technical support and the
ability to meet itís customers IT demands well
into the future. Velocity provided the
confidence to GD Rutter that these concerns
would be fully met.
PRONTO-Xi has been able to provide GD Rutter
with a comprehensive inventory management
system, and a facility to track shipment costs,
a critical feature when operating an importing
operation that requires long lead times.
Velocity is also working with GD Rutter on the
second phase of implementation to increase the
transparency of manufacturing costs within their
in-house wood turning division.
To GD Rutter, the decision to partner with
Velocity represents a significant investment in
the future, and one that they are comfortable
will deliver both financial and service rewards.
