Sage, a market leader in cloud business management solutions, has shared the business improvements Canine Companions gained by moving its financial software to the cloud with Sage Intacct.
Switching from on-premises accounting software that required the finance team to do 70% of its work manually in Excel or with paper-based workarounds, Canine Companions has automated processes and gained deeper insights into the organization. With the new solution, Canine Companions was able to scale its finance operations to keep pace with their 2.4x growth in grants, assets and transactions, while at the same time processing receivables 50% faster and reducing costs by half a million dollars.
Jack Peirce, CFO at Canine Companions, said: “Sage Intacct made it very easy to absorb our rapid growth in transactions and we did it efficiently while maintaining internal controls. We’re now realizing economies of scale.”
Over the last four decades, Canine Companions has teamed more than 7,000 service dogs with adults, children, and veterans with disabilities – all at no cost to clients. With a mission of bringing greater independence to these programme participants, the human services non-profit organization now spans six training locations across the United States. Canine Companions leadership credits the Digital Transformation Sage Intacct enabled as the reason the finance team could keep up with the non-profit’s growth.Click below to share this article
