Over the past 4 years, Shaun and Betka Tyacke have been working to grow and expand their business Fresh In Fresh Out.
In 2016 they set up a 220 acre farm in Victoria for the purpose of growing and securing their supply of asparagus.

Fresh In Fresh Out worked with KPMG to implement Financials for Office 365 (now known as Wiise), a scalable Microsoft Dynamics 365 cloud ERP to replace their legacy system. Financials for Office 365 offered a low-cost solution that could be implemented in a matter of weeks for their small business. FIFO now seamlessly manage their finances, sales, purchases, inventory, and reporting all from the one system.
Core user and business owner Betka Tyacke said: “Financials for Office 365 saves me 10 hours per week on data entry, invoicing, and reporting. For a time-poor business owner, I can now get more done in a day. We have digitised our business by moving to the cloud and going paperless. We now have far more insights into our business at our fingertips because of the reporting capability and I have full transparency over my accounts.”
In choosing KPMG, Betka says,”I felt most confident with KPMG because they were there to help and acted professionally. Our previous partner thought we were too small and unimportant and we did not feel supported. Big and small businesses all have challenges and KPMG treated us with the respect we expected. The consulting team knew what they were doing and the implementation was smooth.”
