Corporate Controller, HomeVestors

Before we made the switch, we were using archaic software that had been heavily customized, was costly to maintain, and wasn’t integrated. It was clear that we needed a new, more robust financial system that could sync with our payment portal in real-time to eliminate duplicate data entry and manual work. We looked at both NetSuite and Sage Intacct, and ultimately chose Sage Intacct because it offered sophisticated multi-entity ERP functionality in the cloud, as well as proven integrations with partner solutions like 2CP’s customer payment portal.

FAQs on franchise accounting

Growing franchises often find that it’s time to step up from on-premise software such as QuickBooks as they grow in number of entities, locations, brands, or complexity. If you’ve reached the point where your growth is being held back by manual data entry, cumbersome consolidations, spreadsheet manipulation, and lack of controls, a cloud franchise accounting solution can automate your financial processes to save you time. By automating those repetitive, time consuming tasks, we’ve helped our customers save hundreds of hours a week and get access to real-time data.
