Executive Summary Previous Soware: • ACS Financial Results with Sage Intacct: • Boosted productivity 35% by streamlining nancial workows • Reduced nance stang needs despite growth, saving $85,000 in salary a year • Gained real-time management and reporting on multiple church locations, ministries and funds • Improved decision-making through more complete, accurate data Challenges Scalable Financial Management for a Fast-Growing Church Based in Knoxville, Tenn., Faith Promise Church is a fast-growing contemporary church oering weekly services for nearly 7,500 people on six campuses. The church also runs an Internet-based campus, two prison ministries, and supports numerous Tennessee-based ministries as well as global missions. Faith Promise had been using ACS Financial as its accounting system, but as the church grew the soware wasn't scaling at the same level. The nance team struggled with manual and oen duplicate data entry, paper-intensive processes, and a lack of visibility into its nancial data. For instance, each purchase requisition approval took about a week of paper shuing and budget reporting for Faith Promise's various ministries required at least a day or two each month of manual reconciliation by the nance team. These infrequent budget updates meant that, at times, people overspent or delayed spending on critical projects because they didn't have the most current data. Recognizing the need for a modern nancial management solution, Faith Promise evaluated Sage Intacct, Blackbaud, Microso Dynamics GP (Great Plains) and Abila MIP. "Sage Intacct stood out because of its rich functionality and its cloud-based delivery model," said Aaron Goin, Chief Financial Ocer. "We liked that we could achieve signicant process improvements and reporting capabilities without worrying about the cost or hassle of installing, updating, and maintaining any soware or hardware." Solutions Eciency and Productivity Soar with Sage Intacct The automation and anywhere, anytime access of Sage Intacct have enabled Faith Promise to greatly simplify and speed its nancial processes and dramatically improve productivity. The time that Goin and his nance assistant spend entering data has dropped from 40% to just 5% — even as the church's membership and budget have grown about two-fold. As a result of this increased eciency, Goin's team has been able to take on additional responsibilities, including HR, facilities, legal, IT, a retail store, and construction project management. And the team can invest more time in analytics through Sage Intacct dashboards and reporting. Scalable Financial Management for a Fast- Growing Church Faith Promise Church C A S E S T U D Y
