Excerpted from The Business of Furniture… April 8, 2020
How much time do you spend as a manufacturer, dealer, or installation company on back office processing? How much time does accounting and paperwork cost you? If you spend more time pushing paperwork than selling furniture, you need Avanto, a company that promises to streamline your back-office system to save you time and money.
Not to get technical, but Avanto specializes in Process as a Service (PaaS) and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) for the office furniture industry by taking the accounting, order management and merchant processing responsibilities off your plate so you can focus on generating more business.
Matt Danyliw, a partner at Avanto, has been in the office furniture industry since 2001. He has been able to apply his knowledge and skills as a CPA and problem solver to growing into positions as CFO and COO within the dealership network of major furniture manufacturers. It was a keen understanding of commercial furniture sales, delivery and accounting processes that enabled Matt to design a system to facilitate the communication between the various entities within the ecosystem. Avanto can either do the processing, automate part of the processing, or make it easier for client companies to process themselves. According to Danyliw, “From the purchase order through cash receipt, we can be an outsource solution, we can be a technology solution, or we can just be process consultants to help our clients navigate how to improve their process themselves.”
Avanto’s mission is to help move the contract furniture industry forward in both process and technology. This is not going to be achieved by working in a vacuum and designing solutions that won’t truly fit and meet client companies’ needs and wants. Success requires understanding where each potential client currently is in their operation, what they methods, systems and/or software they are using and what they are looking to add, detract or change from the current process. Without this knowledge Avanto would not be able to provide the best solutions and alternatives for a prospective client.
