Working in either the primary produce or the export sector is a challenging task; Milk New Zealand does both. It owns and operates 29 farms, sells raw milk to processors, and exports large volumes of milk products to China. The company has serious demands in asset management and reporting and chose Greentree to address them.
eDocs handles more than 15,000 invoices a year, creating a virtually paperless audit trail that’s accessible anywhere in a secure, controlled environment.
Milk New Zealand operates 29 farms, managing hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of assets, with an annual turnover in the tens of millions and over 100 containers of products shipped every month. It decided that Greentree was the most cost-effective option for updating its business systems and when they saw eDocs, it was sold.
Greentree’s WebView Financial Reporting has brought further benefits as Milk New Zealand continues to grow.
“We have quite a large fixed asset register and have been working to bring that up to a very high standard of record,” says Milk New Zealand. “That register goes back a number of years, so there are obviously quite a large number of transactions in dollar value and volume. However, all this was handled very efficiently through the WebView uploads.”
