Utilizing Technology Consulting Instead of Replacing System Resolves Issues
A national hotel and water park operator could no longer meet the organization's needs without a fully-centralized accounting department. The disjointed movement of information to and from the headquarters was constraining growth and causing frustration throughout the organization.
While some staff members struggled to keep pace, others bemoaned the inability to get at information and the dependency on others. The problem needed addressing before this organization could achieve their goal of becoming a publically traded company.
We solved the problem, by appropriately transitioning some accounting functions to the on-premise management team while implementing governance and control at the headquarters. Everyone won!
Creating Centralized Repository Eliminates Bottlenecks – Improves Processes
A private hotelier managing dozens of facilities across the country was bottlenecked with paper documents and unable to keep up the requests for information from its remote locations. They needed a way to electronically capture data at the individual sites and allow remote users to securely gain access to a central repository.
We solved this problem by putting in the necessary web-based technology. Remote users were able to enter data, scan paper documents and search for the specific information they needed. The property’s processes are now industrialized and they’ve realized additional benefits when addressing challenges such as staff turn-over and covering workload in peak periods.
Implementing the Right Solution Brings Automation, Improved Processes and Added Capabilities
A regional developer of hotel and entertainment destinations was struggling with the accounting and job costing related to construction, capital improvements and operations of their facilities. The company had dozens of corporations requiring independent accounting records.
They had a continuous flow of new developments or capital improvements that needed to be budgeted for, managed and job costed. The accounting department personnel struggled to keep pace with the daily activities, reconciliations and production of financial statements.
Our professionals solved this problem by implementing a robust multi-company system that automated intercompany entries, centralized cash processing and streamlined the financial statement generation and delivery. The same system had the ability to cost jobs with little-to-no additional burden on the staff.
