Financial Software To Meet Your Growing Needs
Two growing multi-industry companies credit much of their respective businesses’ growth and diversification to Oneir Solutions’ highly flexible, readily adaptable, and superbly-serviced financial software system.

Whether it’s your kids or your company, it’s no snap meeting either’s financial needs. Both seem forever needy.
As your company grows, you soon know that you’re going to need something more than cash-in-a-shoe-box to handle your finances. It doesn’t take long to see either that even generating an invoice can be too tedious. Not much later you’ll feel the need for a system that delivers your point-of-sale data out front to your accounting records in back – better than clerks in sneakers. And then, maybe as you add another outlet or location, you will really feel the need to know what’s going on financially at all your locations, all the time.
Indeed, as you grow you are going to need financial software that not only suits your industry but can also be adapted to the peculiarities of your business. And to do that you’re going to need expert help learning how your new-fangled financial system works and someday no doubt you’re going to need to know what to do when you or an employee make some catastrophic error entering data that freezes or crashes your system.
Needs, needs, needs, and yet more needs to come.
Let’s say you’re doing well and start to diversify your company. Say too that you have a successful ceramic tile business with several locations but you can see an profit-making opportunity for a trucking business to ship those tiles and lots of other goods. And maybe too you need a holding company to help you better manage those real estate properties where your stores now stand. So, now you’re thinking you’re going to need a separate financial software for each.
Well, Ton Holten, who’s done all of the above, doesn’t think you need more than one system, nor does Benny Bombardieri. Their experience tells them that there is indeed a financial solution out there that will fill all your diverse needs, and it is Oneir.
Both entrepreneurs credit much of their respective businesses’ growth and diversification to Oneir Solutions’ highly flexible, readily adaptable, and superbly-serviced financial software system. Happy Oneir users say no other financial software company pays as close attention to every kind of customer financial system need.
“We’ve been working a long time, nearly 30 years, with the company…and we are going to stay with Oneir.
“We’ve been working a long time, nearly 30 years, with the company; first with its (DOS-based) predecessor, and now with the (Linux-based) Oneir software and we are going to stay with Oneir,” says Mr. Holten, owner and founder of Tilemaster Canada, a construction industry retail and wholesale supplier of ceramic tiles. “We’ve tried other financial software, but over the years, we’ve seen how the people at Oneir constantly add improvements to their software based on what companies like us tell them we want the software to do for us.”
It was that unrelenting addressing of customer needs that convinced Mr. Bombardieri, President of Bombardieri Uniforms, a manufacturer, wholesaler, and retailer of school uniforms, that he should switch his company’s financial software to Oneir.
“Oneir’s support of their software is just fantastic,” says Bombardieri. “We had a problem with tracking materials at our manufacturing facility and Oneir helped us tremendously by showing us how to use the Oneir software to solve it.”
That’s music to the ears of Oneir co-founder and executive-vice president Jonathan Mainwaring: “We service customers who are growing their companies and who are looking to get more out of their financial software as a result. Consequently, Oneir likes to closely partner with those companies and provide them with a complete group of services. We consult with them about their needs; we do the software programming they need; we implement the software for them; we train the people who need to use the system; and of course, after all that’s done, we give our customers the on-going support they need.”
Even when it’s not convenient.
“Oneir is always just one phone call away,” says Tilemaster’s Holten. “We called Oneir one time and left a message about a mistake we had made ourselves and didn’t know how to fix. And the person at Oneir who normally supports us called us back and immediately fixed the program for us remotely – while he was on vacation.”
Such is the corporate culture at Oneir.
“We now have four locations and Oneir enables us to not only consolidate all their financial data; but also if one location goes down we can still work locally so their data is not lost.
“We like to pride ourselves on being able to handle a very broad scope of businesses processes and any problems connected with them,” says Oneir’s co-founder and President Jane Giggal. “No matter what our customers sell; no matter what inventory they carry; from the front of the office to the back; and no matter what happens with our software – we know we can help them fill their needs.”
It is this universal quality of Oneir that also helps set it apart. A visit to the Oneir Solutions website (www.oneirsolutions.com) reveals success stories of Oneir meeting the needs or growing companies in over a dozen diverse industry verticals.
It’s a point not lost on Ton Holten at Tilemaster.
“We now have four locations and Oneir enables us to not only consolidate all their financial data; but also if one location goes down we can still work locally so their data is not lost. Also, if the internet service drops out, we don’t lose our financial system, because Oneir is not internet-based,” says Holten. “Also, we’ve started up a trucking company as well as a holding company to manage our real estate properties. And with a little bit of thinking and help from Oneir’s customer support team, we’ve been able to adapt Oneir so that one system now manages our finances for all three companies.”
Now, if only Oneir could be adapted to help our kids grow less needy too.
