PROBLEM SOLVED: Global Velocity Group managing director David Icke, left, with director Allister Gillam at their company’s Te Rapa headquarters.


Global Velocity Group asked Company-X to build software that would integrate with enterprise resource planning management software MYOB Exo.


Global Velocity Group is a specialist in the custom design, manufacture and supply of all types of clothing and accessories to large retail brands, corporates and schools throughout Australasia.

It has more than 18 years of experience in garment design, manufacture, sourcing and distribution for many leading international brands.

Global Velocity Groups owns and operates a 2400sqm manufacturing facility in China. Its plant produces woven and knitted garments. Its facilities include laser cutting machines to high tech seam seal machines to make 100% waterproof garments.

Its design and head management team are located in Hamilton, New Zealand where it can also offer both warehousing and distribution options for customers. It creates unique solutions and develops ranges to meet the specific needs of each of our clients.


Global Velocity Group was taking customer orders by phone, fax, and email and manually processing them. When they investigated streamlining the sales process it came down to either hiring more staff or commissioning specialist software.


Global Velocity Group managing director David Icke sought trusted advice from software specialist Company-X co-founder and director David Hallett, who he had previously hired for other work.

Global Velocity Group wanted to make the sales process operation more efficient. The company had decided to use the MYOB Exo enterprise resource planning business management solution and asked Company-X to design and build a solution that would integrate with it.


Company-X analyst developer Schalk Bower visited the Global Velocity Group at its Te Rapa, Hamilton, office, and analyzed the software needs of the business. Bower was tasked with developing a web-based sales order portal for retailers which worked on both desktop computers and mobile devices. It would pass sales orders on to MYOB Exo for processing by Global Velocity Group’s warehouse staff.

Bower quickly developed an early working version of the tool. It became the starting point for later iterations that emerged as the project matured.

Retailers log into the new system and start on a landing page unique to them as a user. Colour coding helps them understand, at a glance, how many individual items of a certain line are available. Green means there’s more than 20, orange means there’s less than 20, and red means out of stock.

If the user tried to order more individual items that are available in the warehouse the system automatically creates a backorder which is sent to Global Velocity’s factory.


“Schalk came down and met with us on-site. It was really productive. After that first meeting, we had 90 per cent of it right.”
