Autoline made the switch to TidyEnterprise just under 10 years ago and found the Kiwi company more approachable and flexible. TidyEnterprise software allows Autoline to process smaller spare part sales while managing larger-scale projects too.
Eight staff members across the sales, purchasing, and administration teams at Autoline use TidyEnterprise. It plays a key role in stock management, assembly productions, purchasing, project management, and spare part sales.
“The integration of sales and projects working off the same inventory system has improved our operations,” says Fisher.
They’ve also found it easy to train new employees and get them up to speed on how to use TidyEnterprise.
With the implementation of TidyEnterprise, Autoline has also been able to streamline its processes and communication between teams.
“We have found Tidy has tidied (no pun intended) up our purchasing so any project purchases or expenses are able to be attached directly to a project, also the integration of sales and projects working off the same inventory system,” Fisher explains.
TidyEnterprise’s integration with Xero tied everything together, improving communication between the two software applications. This allowed for a more efficient and accurate accounting process.
A Bright Future
Autoline sees a bright future in the industry, with a focus on developing and improving in-house processes. They’ve recently started a journey into lean manufacturing, virtual robot (VR) programming, and live stock control with barcoding and scanning.
This will enable Autoline to further streamline their processes and improve their inventory management, making them an even more efficient and effective provider of robotic welding, automation, conveyors, and SlotPro solutions.
Autoline is currently growing their range of robotic welding cells and expanding into Australia. They are moving into larger and more customised premises this year and recently established ANZRA: a robotics training academy. This will be fully established in their new premises with the latest robot and programming advancements, enabling them to provide world-class support for their customers.
With several exciting large-scale robot welding projects in the pipeline, Autoline is glad to have TidyEnterprise by their side to help plan, manage, and measure future projects.
