Multi Branch

Within a Franchise group or as an independent chain of businesses, you could operate a number of sites under a single ABN. With the flexibility of Marlin GTX, you can elect to consolidate all your Administrative functions to be performed in one location. This removes the onus on your 'Branches' having to perform some tasks locally and the net effect of time savings in your whole business can be achieved by :

  • Centralised General Ledger that allows a full Trial balance, P&L, Balance Sheet and Journal entries for each Branch
  • Centralised Debtors producing single Statement, centralised debtor balances, credit limits, account holds, etc.
  • Interrogation or reprint the detail of all transactions performed at a Branch level
  • Allocate receipts against Branch Debtor transactions
  • Make purchases for all Branches or effectively act as a warehouse for your Branches
  • Analyse Sales figures across all Branches
  • Auto Stock Transfers across your Branches saving on manual entry of the transactions at the Branches

This provides enormous time and cost savings by allowing centralised accounting within that group, reducing the need for separate bookkeeping for each business. Marlin GTX is an integrated system providing detailed sales and other management information at each store & consolidated `real time' at your Head Office.

The system allows you to have tight control over your businesses with independent and consolidated analysis of all key performance indicators. Also enables Head Office control of key product, customer, supplier and financial data with immediate update at store level. Make use of the easy collection of customer information for Head Office follow up programs, providing the ability to market to the "Cash sale" customer from a central point.

Save on all the time consuming effort and costly phone calls by utilising the `Live Branch Stock Enquiry' that shows availability of stock across all stores.
