The Challenge For MJK Industries

Before adopting WorkGuru, MJK Industries faced significant challenges managing fragmented data and accurately tracking project costs and profitability. The company relied heavily on spreadsheets and handwritten notes, which caused issues with version control and data sharing. This led to frequent errors in project cost calculations and delays in invoicing, impacting the company's cash flow. The business manager, Jo Knott, emphasised the necessity of a centralised system to make their processes smoother, from lead generation to project execution.

Because they needed a unified system, they needed help integrating it with their accounting software, Xero. The process involved mapping the existing data in Xero to the corresponding fields in WorkGuru, ensuring a seamless transfer of financial information.  This integration has streamlined financial operations, making tracking project expenses easier and generating accurate financial reports. 
“There were many spreadsheets in different locations with little version control, and a lot of emailing data back and forth. We needed to centralise data and streamline our processes.”

Before WorkGuru, we might not have realised we already had $50,000 worth of stock on hand and ordered more unnecessarily. Thanks to WorkGuru, our operations are smoother, our team is better equipped, and our clients are happier. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.

A lot of apps do one thing really well but could never do everything we needed. WorkGuru is just different...Things are just where you'd expect them to be. The whole platform is super intuitive. We've always felt that WorkGuru has our back. I'd happily give them a 10/10 for customer service.
