In a recent Greentree Partner Opinion piece, SAAS architect Teresa Hooper says “Because Greentree is so flexible, we’re able to manipulate it to make sure we’re covering all their needs. You wouldn’t typically find that in a normal SaaS system.”
Douglas Pharmacy Group, is one of the larger groups utilising the system. Douglas has been a key element to rolling out bizlinkIT’s innovative solutions for larger organisations, offering itself as a Beta tester. The success of the system earned bizlinkIT and Douglas Group a Customer Collaboration Award at the Greentree we3 Awards.
Lyn Guy, Group Accountant for Douglas Group, says the system is “brilliant”, delivering KPI reports to pharmacists in plain language they can understand; plus the reports can be tailored for specific types of pharmacies. The online functionality has cut payroll processing time in half, as well as reducing errors in GST returns. End-of-month reports can be finalised in a matter of hours, as opposed to days.
“Through this system we’re able to value-add in a very cost-effective manner because so much of the work is automated,” Teresa says.
“It’s interesting to note how much news coverage there is about SaaS today,” she concludes. “We’ve effectively been providing it, with Greentree, for at least 10 years. It’s not something new, as far as we’re concerned.”
