When JAK Max approached Annexa, they were battling a restricted business system. As their customer base grew they were struggling to eradicate unnecessary losses as a result of inventory mismanagement. To assist with global expansion, JAK Max required a unified system that would allow stock management and transactions to be made across all three subsidiaries, JAK Max, PMD international and their China manufacturing arm.
JAK Max were also facing challenges when it came to reporting on financials. Their reporting system was cumbersome and disconnected. Employees were required to log in and out of systems and prepare reports based on data exports. This not only ate into resources and productivity, it hindered their ability to create accurate, timely reports.
Having previously utilised a cloud system, JAK Max were familiar with cloud capabilities. The Annexa team took it a step further and transformed JAK Max’s core architecture to NetSuite OneWorld, a cloud ERP system that would give them the ability to expand into wider global markets. This includes ‘out of the box’ consolidated reporting, allowing the team to easily adapt to markets currencies, legislations and reporting requirements - all within one system.
Tracking, inventory control, real-time data, advanced reporting capabilities, and one single unified system – it’s exactly what JAK Max needed to thrive in changing global environments and set themselves apart from competitors.
Improved stock management is the biggest gain. Being able to monitor and move stock between locations as well as the easy flow of ordering helps our business to run smoothly. NetSuite’s stock management and warehouse capabilities with multi locations was a key selling point for us, along with reporting capabilities – we can now generate a report on anything at the click of a button!Josephine Ayre, Assistant Manager, JAK Max
