Highlighted comments from Larry Chank, CFO, Hopi Tribe Economic Development Corp.:

"We wanted a scalable system that would support all of our multiple subsidiaries, which each have their own unique managerial challenges. We looked at many cloud offerings, but ultimately chose Sage Intacct because it is a lot more flexible for small, but complex, businesses like ours, and we knew it could keep pace with our growth."

"With Sage Intacct, our general managers and department heads hold greater accountability, because management can quickly pinpoint areas of financial concern and have accurate information with which to make better business decisions. As a result, three of our struggling entities moved into the black, our overall gross margins improved by 20%, cash flow increased by nearly half of a million dollars, and our real estate asset values grew by over $5 million."

"Sage Intacct has made a world of difference for all of our day-to-day financial processes – from reporting, to accounts payable and receivable, to payroll. It requires just a fraction of the people power that we'd need on our current solution, and reduces our error rate. With this increased efficiency, our finance team is able to scale easily with the business. We've even been able to reduce headcount and increase salaries to boost job satisfaction. Sage Intacct truly makes finance fun and helps our team look outstanding in the organization."
