Sage is top of the league for Big Ten Conference

The oldest Division I athletic conference in the United States gains organization-wide financial visibility through real time reporting from Sage Intacct

In search of a flexible, anywhere anytime solution

With its on-premises accounting software struggling to keep up with the Big Ten’s growing transactions, and the finance team having little confidence in the reliability of the legacy software, it was time to seek out a modern and flexible solution. Big Ten wanted a cloud-based general ledger that could offer anytime, anywhere availability and reduce the IT department’s burden.

After comparing Sage Intacct with NetSuite, we chose Intacct for its best-in-class financial solution that was built by CPAs to meet specialized accounting needs.

Powerful financial automation boosts productivity and simplifies chart of accounts

Big Ten says the biggest efficiency improvement Sage Intacct has generated is with financial reporting; the built-in automation makes the whole process ‘faster and more accurate’. Meanwhile, Intacct’s flexible dimension capability has helped Big Ten refresh and dramatically simplify its chart of accounts—giving the team an entirely new way to track and report on financial data.

Once we create a dimension, we can use it to categorize any transaction; and as our business changes, it’s quick and easy to add the dimensions we need.

Real-time reporting boosts organization-wide financial visibility

Intacct’s reporting capabilities have brought the Big Ten’s financial visibility to a whole new level, allowing it to spot trends more easily. The team can see a current snapshot at any time and drill down for more details as needed, while dimensions let them slice and dice the financial data across specific locations, departments, or vendors for more granular reporting.

The reports we have are much more robust, allowing us to analyze our data better and instantly compare year-over-year, actuals-to-budget, and more.
