Sage Intacct is just the cure for Creative Medical Research

Creative Medical Research Ltd - United Kingdom

Suffolk-based company gains better project accounting after outgrowing previous financial software

Company’s fast growth leads to change in structure

Creative Medical Research (CMR) had grown used to Sage 50 over the years but following a management buyout, the financial structure of the company began to change. It became apparent that CMR had outgrown its existing finance software and finance director Nicola Groom could see they needed something that could match the new structure as well as the new world of hybrid working.

I needed software that could easily handle intercompany accounts, allow better project cost management, and implement purchase orders.

Staying with the Sage family

Nicola was clear she wanted to stay within the Sage family and following a demonstration of the software, was soon sold on Sage Intacct. The company was also attracted to the cloud-based technology that Intacct offered its employees, especially given the switch to more remote working.

Intacct just felt like it was the way forward and was exactly how I wanted an accounts package to look. It was cloud-based too.

Intacct provides cost savings and more efficient ways of working

Intacct’s automation has massively sped up previously time-consuming tasks. The software now allows the finance director to seamlessly switch between intercompany accounts and no longer need to export everything to Excel. As well as freeing up time, the new software is saving the company money too, thanks to Nicola’s ability to keep a tight control on project spend now.

We have four companies, and each has two bank accounts, so the automated bank feed feature is a huge time saver.
