Design+Industry is Australia's leading industrial design firm, creating everything from breakthrough medical devices to a Domino’s Pizza delivery robot.
D+I have offices in Melbourne and Sydney and together they’ve won more design awards than we can count, but it was their project management and invoicing systems that were stuck in the dark ages causing inefficiency, inconsistencies between the two offices, and grief for admin staff.
"Our existing back office systems were crumbling and unsupported. We were using multiple spreadsheets and doubling up with data entry to capture time and materials for purchasing, invoicing and payroll. Previous searches to find an off the shelf solution had cost significantly in time and money and not worked out."
They called on us to develop a centralised web application to streamline and standardise how they run and invoice projects, while still supporting their unique workflows
They really understand the way we work, so it was a great process to work with them to drastically improve our administration procedures.

What we built
Online multi-office project management system, Xero integration.
One App for All
Disparate and clunky systems for time recording, project management and invoicing have been replaced by a single highly-responsive application.
More Staff Time
Project managers and administration staff are freed from the burden of repetitive data entry and time consuming manual reporting.
There is now real-time visibility on the status of projects and work done across the entire company of more than 50 industrial designers and engineers.
Purchase orders are integrated with a supplier database and invoicing is automatically connected with Xero resulting in their monthly invoicing now being completed in days, not weeks.
