Primo Water Corporation, based in Winston-Salem, NC, is the leading supplier of bottled water dispensers in the US. The company operates in two segments – Primo Bottled Water Exchange that sells 3 and 5 gallon bottles of purified water and Primo Products that sells water dispensers for those and other compatible bottles. As a privately owned, fast-growing start-up firm, the company quickly outgrew the capabilities of their QuickBooks accounting software and chose to migrate to Microsoft Dynamics® GP. Primo Water needed a comprehensive solution to take advantage of the technology capabilities, but wanted to avoid the complexity and high costs that often come with larger, more drawn out implementations. By adopting and upgrading to the latest version of Microsoft Dynamics GP, Primo Water achieved added business value, while being able to deploy the solution quickly and affordably.
In addition, by using MIcrosoft Dynamics GP Primo Water has experienced:
A savings of approximately $200,000 in time and labor as a result of more streamlined business processes.
A savings of $35,000 in legal and audit expenses due to tighter control of business functions.
A 29 percent improvement in invoice accuracy with faster and easier visibility into inventory positions, checks and balances.
More environmentally minded business practices as a result of paperless invoices futher saving the company almost $5 per invoice in postage fees.
