Moving from Transactional Accounting to Analytical Decision Support
With a rich 100-year history of serving seniors and their families through a variety of health, wellness, and social services, Lutheran SeniorLife's business has expanded significantly over the years. Most recently, the nonprofit acquired some organizations that provide visiting nursing and human services, each of which used different accounting systems. With this increasing complexity, Lutheran SeniorLife's chart of accounts and financial processes were getting out of hand, and its finance team decided to centralize core functions and move all 24 entities onto one robust platform.
Around this time, the organization also migrated its clinical system to HealthMEDX, and went in search of a user-friendly financial management solution that could connect with its new software to help improve productivity across the board. “We wanted a platform that would build on the basic capabilities of our legacy system, with the addition of rich reporting and a more integrated multi-entity general ledger,” said William Thompson, accounting manager at Lutheran SeniorLife. “We chose Sage Intacct over Oracle and Microsoft Dynamics for its flexibility and ability to eliminate manual work in support of our goal – to transform the traditional approach to finance, and alter the mix of our finance team’s skills towards more financial analysis, risk management, and forecasting.”

In the mission-driven nonprofit world, accounting and financial management can sometimes slip down the priority list. It’s not always easy to allocate budget dollars to back office infrastructure that doesn’t directly support the nonprofit agenda, and it’s even harder to find the time and expertise to make it all work. Consider some of the obstacles:
What do nonprofit financial leaders have to say about their move to the cloud?
“All of our chapters can access our cloud-based financials,” said Nikki Jones, Controller, Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association. “We have volunteers working all over the world at all hours of the day and night. With our system, they access the same world-class financial foundation that many companies use. Our board and chapter leaders have real-time access to reports, registrations, metrics, and analyses. That means we’re constantly on top of our operation and can make strategic decisions faster. For us, the cloud is critical. It’s the only way to go.”
“Cloud financials are absolutely key to running a nonprofit today,” said James Linday, Vice President and CFO, Great Books Foundation. “Now we can eliminate lots of manual work, be more productive, and eliminate all of those capital investments. This is a predictable, flat operating expense, and we save at least $30,000 a year this way.”
In nonprofit financial management, survival depends on predictable costs, a reliable infrastructure, and world-class functionality.
