Special Van Distributors

* This was one of my finest programs and worked like a dream. The principals can be applied to so many food, sales vans type businesses for any sort of product or service and provides financial, DR, CR, production & stock automatically *

Van Distributors (Profit Centres-1 client 50 vans) – this deserves a special mention. All vans were treated as profit centres with complete stock control. They submitted a daily order (based on an auto form sales list – so they only needed to enter quantities), which was later summarised for all vans and purchase orders auto created for products/materials required and reports made for production completion. Stock would be distributed with an invoice (covered stock control and base cost of stock). Sales recorded and returns processed as credit and stock adjustment. Each van was reconciled daily for cash and products. The van drivers had no special skills but all facets worked efficiently. Fantastic application that worked like a dream. Could even work in coffee shops, fast food outlets.


Success stories:

  • Took a single store that had been struggling to a fully franchised enterprise and created the strongest group/franchise solution in the world (quote: American AFA)
  • Automated blind manufacturing (none previously due to complexity) and now is the industry leader. We are also currently developing a special client order app.
  • Gave a franchise group an extra 6% gross profit through sales product changes
  • Gave a national company an extra 5% net profit after the owner was happy with prior inferior profit results but we felt there was room for improvement and there was!
  • Started a management consulting practice within a chartered practice and generated in the first year at today’s rate: $700,000 ($300,000 in 1986)
  • Found a unique way to reduce stock capital investment by 10% ($1 million saved for key customers). This puts capital back in your client’s pockets. Imagine how happy your clients will be when you can give them $10K - $50K extra cash?


Case Study1: An Australian company with English ownership and USA shareholding had quite onerous reporting requirements on a monthly basis to comply with UK/USA fiscal reporting standards which are very tough indeed. They used to spend 4 days per month, in a state of panic to meet the deadlines and tie up an accountant, an assistant accountant and 2 clerks.

The result was a job completed by the accountant or the assistant accountant over 1 day per month. Cost savings for a year was over $20,000 many years ago (now 34K), so as well as providing prompt accurate figures the company has saved at least $700,000 plus to date.

Case Study2: Existing software was replaced by a competitor at a cost over $1,000,000 over a 12 month period. When that software did not work the MD asked me to provide a TBS solution which was installed for $30,000 within a month and worked for 2 decades!

Case Study3: Public company with 26 subsidiaries requires huge internal accountancy resource and involvement of external consultants to consolidate monthly data and provide Board reports. This involves single data-entry stations for all subsidiaries – a room full of operators manipulating program formats to enter 10 hours per day into a central repository. Report completion required between 5-7 days per month.

TBS solution was an integrated program consolidating the 26 companies, requiring 1 internal accountant instead of 4. Consolidation requires 4 hours per month with reporting formats defined within the TBS program. Data-entry catered for within the TBS Corporate Accounts package under an 18 user system. Up to 12 operators enter invoices etc for 10 hours per day at full typist speeds without a single clash during a 3 year period. Data is auto-archived on a rolling 6 month basis to maintain currency and manageability. Control of the software has been handed to internal staff after than initial 3 year period.

TBS is a collection of enterprise solutions for all business sizes, practices, business groups, franchises plus any bespoke work required. Everything can be provided seamlessly in the cloud (since 2010) on dedicated servers in your country for maximum security & speed.

It’s funny on re-visiting these past deeds it shows how clearly we can impact on businesses with bespoke solutions. Never lose sight of your capacity to influence a client’s success when you know the core of their business. Too many just think of invoicing and the minimum data use. Don’t be guilty of the same lack of care…
