Prior to implementing working with BAASS, their controller, Brittany Nasso, noted that their accounting solution was simply unable to perform the necessary tasks for their business; it was outdated and lacking the functionality that the company required.
“The process with BAASS and the implementation of Sage improved our processes, developed our team internally, and allowed for growth from a business and professional standpoint.”- Brittany Nasso, Controller
Through a requirements analysis, BAASS identified several areas where Sage Intacct would be able to fulfill their needs. Due to its fit and ability to integrate with their Salesforce CRM solution, Voices.com selected to implement Sage Intacct.
Three integration's were performed, which run daily:
Since implementing Sage Intacct, Voices.com found their business processes to be streamlined and more efficient; work that was previously done manually was now automated. Brittany noted that there was a big transition in terms of the responsibilities of her team as well. Prior to Sage, her team was composed of A/R specialists that spent an abundance of time handling collection calls and logging collections. Now, these positions have changed to accounting specialists. Their role evolved to including more accounting based tasks, and they have more freed up time to work on other projects, rather than solely focusing on collections.
"I found that BAASS employees were extremely knowledgeable. Our one rep is an accountant by profession, so his background was very helpful during implementation.” - Brittany Nasso, Controller
Voices.com uses their new Sage Intacct solution daily, and it has greatly enhanced other departments besides finance. With the ability to create departmental budgets through the solution, department heads are able to review their spending more efficiently. Being able to do this in a reasonable time of approximately 3 days after the month-end, relative to a month after, department heads can make timely and more informed decisions about their current spending and budget. Brittany noted that, "now it's so second nature, but there was a point in time that we didn't have that feature."
"The CRM team did a great job in identifying and understanding our needs. IT was critical that they had experience with our business and understood what we were looking for. Ultimately, anything that we dreamed up, the CRM developers made happen!" - Brittany Nasso, Controller
If you’re like most other financial services organizations, you have a holding company and multiple entities. Management of the locations can be difficult if you’re using an on-premises solution for those entities, and even more difficult if you have multiple solutions in place for each entity.
What if you could have one solution to manage every location and every business line with data at your fingertips?
