Relying on legacy software in a company’s beginnings may seem like a cost-effective option, but as one multi-entity company found, for a growing business, on-premise software can be a drain on time and resources in the long-run.
Horizon Eye Care – a Charlotte NC full-service eye care company – had expanded into multiple locations and entities and was currently relying on a legacy software solution. When they found their current software setup was being phased out, they turned to Massey Consulting for options.
Among the biggest obstacles for Horizon was that each legal entity had to have a separate chart of accounts because each one needed to have a separate database.
As a result, this meant a mountain for work for the Corporate Office. It also meant they didn’t have full financial visibility. This setup also created hours of frustration for its accounting team because they had to log in and out of each entity’s database multiple times a day.
Massey assessed Horizon Eye Care’s needs and knew Sage Intacct, a best-in-class cloud-based financial management solution, would be the perfect fit for their complex multi-entity requirements.
When Horizon Eye Care brought on Sage Intacct, their Controller, Sandra Miller, quickly found they saved time in processing and reissuing checks with Sage Intacct’s high level of automation.
Now, with one chart of accounts, Horizon can make endless modifications to reporting in Dimensions, with complete visibility into continually updated data by working in the cloud.
They save time by being able to upload large volumes of data at one time, quickly build and save different reports to use again later, reclassify invoices, and edit journal entries effortlessly.
“The overall costs (of a cloud solution) might seem higher at the beginning, but in the end, you will save money and time.” – Sandra Miller, controller, Horizon Eye Care
