Phoenix Customer Stories Podcast Show Notes: Guest: John Lakey (Sunbury VIC) We're pleased to introduce to you John Lakey, who similarly to our previous guests is busy trying new things. He is making his farm business sustainable both financially and environmentally. A big part of trying new things is to constantly measure your progress and he is using Phoenix Livestock to do this with his Ryeland sheep flock, Saler beef cattle and goats. John has suggested some improvements that we could make to Phoenix Livestock, along with making the product available via a mobile device. Our mobile solutions are in development and we look forward to seeing them in you hands out in the paddock. He is the sort of bloke who doesn't hold back, so I would suggest having a listen to the recording and visiting the reference links below for further information. Links: 1. Ray-Monde Deux 2.

Phoenix Customer Stories Podcast Show Notes: Guest: Peter Doyle (Ballimore N.S.W.) Peter Doyle is a mixed farmer who verges on the side of certified organic but has never pursued certification. He is responding to the consumer market who wants to know the story behind the product, but he also wants to hand over the property in a better condition to that which he received it in. Peter also runs a business called Future Ag that works with the farmer to implement animal and soil health solutions using natural and biological systems for small to large scale producers. His partner Sharon, in her spare time (cough), makes a very popular black sauce similar to Worcestershire that you can order online or pick up at field days or markets when they are there. Links: 1.

Phoenix Customer Stories Podcast Show Notes: Guest: Phil Gardiner (Moora W.A.) Phil Gardiner takes time out from his busy schedule to talk with Stephen about some of his farming enterprises. They talk about the successes, and the failures. Phil has ventured into biodiesel, mustard, beef, sheep, wool, pastures, crops, hay, politics, corporate business. He has not dodged the difficult topics and has been willing to give things a go if they made sense to do so. Phil uses Phoenix Financial and Power Budgets to manage the financial aspects of all of these farming enterprises. He subscribes to the Signature Support Plan and has a strong opinion on the value of the support provided by the AGDATA team. He uses another product for his production recording that requires pedigree recording for his Edale Merino Stud. Content Correction: During the discussion about biodiesel Phil refers to oil when he actually meant diesel. Links: 1.

Villamosa Cattle Co. Nelle Stevenson whilst taking a break from the Blackwater Grazing BMP Expo joins Mark Leahy for a chat and describes her Phoenix experience. Listen to her experience here Transcript:We've been using Phoenix since 2002, because a lot of people had recommended it to me: My Brother and his wife had been using it in their business and other friends. I think you go to the people who you admire, who you think run their business well when you are selecting things like management software. I found it really simple to use. User friendly I suppose. I'd learned the basics of accounting with other software but Phoenix just took it to the next level. It has really good training and that support has been there all along, with people who really know their stuff, they know their product inside and out. They know what your problem is almost before you say it yourself really because they have so much experience with the product. I haven't got to the bottom of it yet and I have been using it for 14 years now. There will be aspects of it that I use on a weekly or monthly basis. Some things or some parts of it you might only come back to when I need to use them. Power Budgets, I found that a really powerful tool to use with cashflow planning and I am really happy with the results that I have had from it. I know that there is more there, as my management needs to manage data will expand possibly as our management style changes. I know it is all there waiting for me to access it. Ends transcriptThis is not the format of our planned Podcast series. We would prefer to have a fireside chat about what you are trying to achieve for your farming business. If you have any Phoenix tricks or tips you would like to share with other Phoenix users, this is a great way of doing it.
