Macon-Bibb County Industrial Authority invests in Sage Intacct

The lead government agency for attracting new business investment streamlines multi-entity financials using Sage software

More robust solution needed

Using Intuit QuickBooks, Macon-Bibb County Industrial Authority struggled to manage its annual operating budget of $12 million across 11 distinct funds using its rigid, time-consuming chart of accounts. A mature, cloud-based system with multi-entity capabilities that would offer visibility to stakeholders beyond the finance team was sought.

I worked side-by-side with our auditor nearly every day for six months, and by the end, we were both acutely aware of the need for a more robust solution.

Smooth, seamless accounting

A key advantage for Macon-Bibb County Industrial Authority is Sage Intacct’s ability to seamlessly and accurately track several funds and projects, including whether projects are completed, in-progress, ongoing, or prospects. As a one-person finance team, productivity was improved by eliminating manual, duplicative entries across payroll, accounts payable, and accounts receivable.

Sage Intacct really provides a level of comfort for my director and the board, and keeps everything running smoothly.

Automation, accuracy, and accountability

Through easy access to custom Sage Intacct dashboards from anywhere, key stakeholders across the organization can now access any financial information they need at the moment they need it. This real-time visibility expedites critical business decisions and has changed Macon-Bibb County Industrial Authority’s culture to one that fosters trust and confidence.

We now have the ability to be transparent and show our mayor, our commission, and even our partners what we are doing with our funds.
