JumpStart Inc. reaches new heights with Sage Intacct

Nonprofit venture development organization improves financial visibility and reduces operating costs thanks to Sage Intacct.

Managing financials across complex multi-entity operations

Following a funding increase and an expansion into more advisory services, JumpStart brought in a new managing partner of operations, Karen Adame, who took a fresh look at the organization’s systems and processes. One of the first decisions she made was to replace the outdated on-premises Microsoft Dynamics SL system with Sage Intacct’s cloud-based financial management solution.

When I joined JumpStart, our inter-company processes were a massive burden, and it was clear we needed a more sophisticated financial management solution.

30% efficiency gains through automation and streamlined processes

Sage Intacct has helped JumpStart streamline several financial processes—from speeding invoicing 80% and slashing the monthly close by two-thirds, to improving the annual audit by 50%. The nonprofit has also experienced an overall efficiency improvement of 30% through automated workflows and fewer incoming questions since everyone has timely, accurate financial information via their personalized Sage Intacct dashboards.

I can now spend 75% of my energy analyzing our financial information and making operational decisions that impact the business.

Improved financial visibility reduces operating costs

JumpStart can now run even its most complex reports and multi-entity consolidations within Sage Intacct. The finance team uses customized dashboards for different leaders across the business, leveraging Intacct’s dimensions to capture business context for reporting by program, funder, restricted grants, line of business, vendor, and even individual employees.

Thanks to the transparency we have in Sage Intacct, we know where our money’s going, and we can reduce our operating costs to optimize the impact of each donation.
