Daniel LangelaanNational health agency Alcohol and Drug Foundation has posted record growth since Melbourne-based Evolution Business Systems (EBS) installed the Microsoft Dynamics NAV financial software.

Alcohol and Drug Foundation (ADF) has grown from $8 million in turnover four years ago to $12 million this year and may grow by as much as 50 per cent this financial year.  ADF, which employs 100 people, runs programs and services in each state and territory to reduce the more than 5000 deaths and 150,000 hospital admissions caused each year by drugs and alcohol.

ADF Chief Financial Officer Daniel Langelaan said Microsoft Dynamics NAV had enabled ADF to grow rapidly. “Growing at this rate using our old system would have been a huge risk,” he said.  “We expect the organisation to grow significantly again this year, possibly by as much as 50 per cent, but our finance team won’t require extra people. With development of the NAV system, we can gain a whole set of new efficiencies through workflows, document management and automation.”

Melbourne-based business software specialist EBS (Evolution Business Systems) this month celebrated 15 years in business after posting a record year during 2015-16.

EBS is a Microsoft Gold ERP Partner specialising in Microsoft Dynamics NAV and other Enterprise Resource Planning solutions that can be tailored to the needs of small to medium sized businesses. The privately-owned company has a particular strength in the not-for-profit sector.

EBS founder and managing director Paul Woods said the company’s success was due to its ability to help customers navigate the rapidly evolving technology industry. “It’s been a tumultuous period to run a business,” he said.

Jonathan said the initiative aligned with EBS values. “In wanting to make a difference in our community, I wanted to do something personally for a worthwhile charity,” he explained.

“I'm inspired by the work of Children's Medical Research Institute (Jeans for Genes) and wanted to support them by raising money as part of my participation in Run Melbourne 2016.

One in 20 children worldwide is born with a birth defect or genetic disease. Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI) is dedicated to advancing the treatment and prevention of childhood diseases, so every child has the opportunity for a healthy start to life.

The Pancake Parlour Financial Controller Darren CottonMelbourne restaurant chain The Pancake Parlour has simplified reporting, business analysis and ease-of-use since Evolution Business Systems (EBS) upgraded its financial management system.

The 50-year-old company, which operates 12 restaurants throughout Melbourne, recognised in 2012 that its ageing business management system was holding back its growth plans.

Simple tasks, like exporting data from the system into a spreadsheet, were not possible, preventing the company from undertaking deeper analysis of its everyday business data. Also, each time The Pancake Parlour opened a new restaurant, it had to pay thousands of dollars to commission new consolidated financial reports incorporating its latest outlet.

EBS Managing Director Paul WoodsAward-winning ERP specialist Evolution Business Systems (EBS) has undergone a dramatic transformation since it collected its first Australian Achiever Award six years ago.

EBS scored a 98.73 per cent customer satisfaction rating in this year’s awards. The Melbourne-based company has always secured a customer satisfaction rating of more than 90 per cent since receiving its first Australian Achiever Award in 2010.

Founder and managing director Paul Woods said EBS was a radically different company to what it had been in 2010. “It has changed completely,” he said.
