Under the partnership, Melbourne-based Pronto will provide a complete solution that integrates Rutledge AV’s business processes, from sales to project execution and service delivery.
According to Rutledge AV Process Improvement Manager, Richard Bakunowicz, the company selected Pronto Software as it was seeking an ERP solution that would improve project visibility across its national sites, as well as simplifying and improving operation efficiencies.
“We needed an end-to-end ERP solution that could grow and evolve with the business. We were very specific in our selection because the solution had to sit across Rutledge’s CRM, Sales, Accounting and Services business divisions.”
Rutledge AV specialises in the supply, installation and servicing of professional audio visual equipment and employs more than 250 employees around Australia, with operations in Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Darwin.
Bakunowicz said that information and data transparency across projects was also a key component in the selection process, as project teams previously struggled to view essential details relating to projects across the company’s national operations.
“One of the issues we had with the previous system was difficulty in accessing relevant project information from multiple sites. Various staff across different levels had no consistent approach that allowed visibility. With Pronto, we know that this problem is solved.
“Using Pronto will allow us to streamline the way we operate. Instead of using separate software programs for CRM, estimating, accounting, support and reporting, we will have a single program that integrates seamlessly with all areas of the business.”
Pronto Software Managing Director, David Jackman, said the new partnership with Rutledge AV represented another example of ERP solutions supporting business transformation and evolution.
“Service providers such as Rutledge AV often have sophisticated requirements and by listening to their needs, we were able to adapt Pronto Xi to complement their business. Pronto Xi provides linkage from CRM to Project Costing to Service Management, key to helping Rutledge AV keep an eye on profitability.”
