Creative Dining Services finds the key ingredient in Sage Intacct

The food service and hospitality provider satisfies its hunger for more efficient and insightful financial management with Sage software

Exponential growth puts the squeeze on inadequate accounting software

Creative Dining had grown to serve over 70 clients across 12 states, but its accounting practices didn’t match the caliber of its customer-centric food service offerings. Prone to crashes, QuickBooks was poorly suited to scale with the company’s rapid growth. Frustration among finance personnel was high.

Creative Dining planned to continue to grow rapidly and we knew we needed a new accounting system.

Efficiency gains free staff up for higher value work

With Sage Intacct, Creative Dining has been able to eliminate 350 hours a week of manual data entry by staff at the 70 client locations, which gives them new time to focus on front-of-house customer service and culinary support. On top of those savings, the company has been able to reduce the finance team from five to four individuals.

Young accounting professionals are expecting a modern system like Sage Intacct, and they love it.

Decision makers can take action in the moment

Site-specific Sage Intacct dashboards give on-site food service directors an array of vital information and key metrics. Creative Dining decision makers no longer have to wait weeks to review monthly performance figures and it enables faster, more informed decision making.

We’ve become a strategic partner to the business since adopting Sage Intacct. We now have a creative back-office system to match our front-of-house creativity.
