Polar Krush quenches thirst for process improvement with Pegasus Software
Aug 27, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) --
Pegasus Software today announced that leading dispensed iced drinks and fruit juices manufacturer, Polar Krush, has deployed its Opera 3 accounting, business and payroll solution. Through consolidating all of its business processes into one system, the frozen drinks company is set for productivity gains of around 15% across the business, while Opera 3's XRL Reporting and Dashboards' modules will improve reporting, reducing the time it takes to prepare management accounts by 60%.
Polar Krush provides its iced drinks dispensing machines on a 'free on loan' basis, and currently has over 4000 company owned pieces of equipment placed on customers premises. The drinks leader will use Opera 3's Service & Helpdesk Management module to support the maintenance and renewal of customer contracts, from order and delivery through to service, breakdown, parts tracking and billing, to minimise costs and enhance both service and profitability.
Polar Krush previously used Sage Line 200 and IRIS, but in 2012 identified a need for a new solution to deliver efficiencies and support business growth. Following a thorough review of providers, including Sage, IRIS and Pegasus Software, the company selected Opera 3 from Pegasus Software. The decision was based on the fact that Opera 3 was the only solution which could deliver all of the functionality Polar Krush required within a single system. The software's intuitive and modern user interface and fast, easy reporting capabilities were also key to the selection.
"The frozen drinks business model is fairly unique, and in order to provide the best service possible, we need to ensure that the machines which dispense our drinks are tracked, serviced and maintained effectively," comments Paul Goldfinch, managing director, Polar Krush. "Our previous system was very cumbersome to use and as the business grew, didn't offer the efficiency we needed. Following our deployment of Opera 3, we now have just one system which manages all areas of our operations, and the robustness of the Service & Helpdesk Management module means that we know the precise status of a contract or piece of equipment at any one time. Through XRL Reporting and Dashboards we can access information on any aspect of our operations - whether it is parts, invoicing or payroll - in less than a minute, enabling us to focus on running the business based on live, meaningful information."
"Pegasus Software's Partner, TSG has also provided invaluable support, and it is testament to their professionalism and tenacity that the team was fully trained, and that the system was fully live well within our timescales. TSG is a fabulous partner and has enabled us to truly maximise the potential of Opera 3."
