All rights reserved. 877-437-7765 Company Overview Founded in 1980 by a mother whose daughter was killed by a drunk driver, Mothers Against Drunk Driving® (MADD) is the nation's largest nonprofit working to end drunk driving, help fight drugged driving, support the victims of these violent crimes and prevent underage drinking. MADD has helped to save nearly 380,000 lives, reduce drunk driving deaths by more than 50 percent, and promote designating a non-drinking driver. Executive Summary Previous So ware: • Microso Dynamics SL (Solomon) Results with Sage Intacct: • Improved financial stewardship to accelerate mission • Sped operational, project, and grant reporting • Slashed monthly financial close by 50% • Streamlined data management tasks from days to minutes • Increased productivity, reducing overhead by 3 FTEs Challenges Laying the Foundation for a Mission-Focused Digital Transformation With an ambitious mission to end drunk driving, help fight drugged driving, support the victims of these violent crimes, and prevent underage drinking, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) engages an army of volunteers and hundreds of dedicated staff in local offices across the Unit- ed States. To support this important work, the National Office's finance team produces financial statements, budgets, and tax returns for all 50 states, as well as reports for about 200 government grants – each with different requirements. Previously, they relied on a combination of Excel spreadsheets, manual paper-driven processes, and clunky workflows in their on-premises Microso Dynamics SL (Solomon) so ware to complete these tasks. However, as budgets tightened, and the IT team turned to cloud computing, MADD's chief financial officer, Lista Hightower, knew there was a be er way. She went in search of a cloud- based solution that could serve as the organization's new financial system of record to maximize efficiency while still delivering reliable, error-free financial data to executive leadership, the board, field offices, and funding agencies. Hightower shared, "As MADD embarked on its digital transformation journey and we looked for ways to shi more spending into our mission, we needed a financial system with be er reporting capabilities and anytime, anywhere access. We considered several vendors before narrowing our choices down to Sage Intacct and Oracle NetSuite. It quickly became clear that Sage Intacct was more commi ed to the nonprofit industry, and the best solution to seamlessly connect with all of the other applications we needed." Solutions Driving Down Overhead through Best-in-Class Integrations Working with JMT Consulting, a Sage Intacct partner, MADD migrated off Microso Dynamics SL and established Sage Intacct as the hub of its financial environment. JMT first integrated Sage Intacct with Workforce Go! for payroll and worked with Carlson Management Consulting to imple- ment Adaptive Insights for budgeting. JMT is currently helping the team extend the solution with additional connectors for Salesforce CRM with Venn Technologies, Concur Expenses and Invoices with Wipfli, and AllocationEdge.
