14 Mar 2013

Named 2012 Excellence in Marketing winner

A long-term MYOB partner, Horizon Business Systems in Western Australia has just been awarded the MYOB Enterprise Solutions Partner Excellence in Marketing 2012 accolade.

The coveted award recognises the partner who booked the most sales for MYOB Enterprise Solutions from self-generated leads in Australia last year. The prize is a five-day all-expenses paid trip to Fiji for two people.

MYOB General Manager, Enterprise Division, Andrew Birch congratulates Horizon Business Systems, saying, “Michael and his team have an impressive understanding of marketing to mid-sized enterprises; they realise the needs of each of their potential and existing clients are unique.

“Horizon takes a tailored approach to generating, developing and converting prospective clients. At the core of the team’s success is the drive to nurture long-term client relationships, create a vast network of referrals and build a warm rapport in helping ensure clients’ needs are met. They are very deserving of this award.”

Horizon Business Systems Managing Director, Michael Pendred accepted the award at the MYOB Enterprise Solutions conference in Sydney last week, saying, “At Horizon, we view receiving recognition for excellence in marketing as validation to our team’s client focus. 

“Often, once organisations go through a change in business systems, the consulting company moves on to the next sale or the next big thing. Key parts of our business and marketing strategy are not only motivated to ensure Horizon’s growth and success but are also focused on contributing to the success of our clients. 

“Also, as a West Australian business, we understand the challenges, opportunities and uniqueness of the West Australia market. Our ethos of ‘helping businesses achieve’ is at the core of everything we do.”

Horizon Business Systems is a business accounting software solution provider based in Perth that specialises in implementing the MYOB EXO Business ERP system. With a proven track record in effectively managing the complex, and often daunting, process of system implementation, the MYOB Enterprise Platinum Partner was also awarded MYOB Enterprise Partner of the Year in 2010, 2008 and 2007.
