Hammering down the time spent on budgeting

After implementing Sage Intacct, Purple Wave is now spending 50% less time on budget work, thanks to the ease of use and native integration between the solution and the Budgeting and Planning component. This has freed up the company’s CFO, who used to handle budgeting, to work on higher-value tasks.

[Cutting budget creation time in half] has allowed the finance team to provide more visibility to our executives, board and managers.

Guesswork going, going, gone

The unified platform provides Purple Wave with richer and more timely budget vs. actuals reporting to fine-tune spending, monitor employee travel and expenses, and make data-driven decisions for business growth.

Sage Intacct is real-time and provides more visibility into expenses, and that allows managers to be better managers.
