Grace Church is located in the southeastern suburb of Overland Park, Kansas and is led by Senior Pastor, Tim Howey. It is a fast growing church planning to open a second location. After a rigorous software evaluation, Grace Church chose Sage Intacct over other on-premises and cloud solutions as the best fit to meet the needs of the organization.
Previous Business Challenges
- Grace Church's main issues lay in the lack of reporting within QuickBooks available to their finance team, and the tremendous amount of time spent outside the system and in Excel preparing reports for the church's leadership. Many reports weren't available to leaders at all.
- Without the necessary financial and operational reporting, church leaders were unable to make strategic decisions, track spending, or create budgets and forecasts without a great deal of manual work.
Reasons for Selecting Sage Intacct and AcctTwo
- Sage Intacct will help Grace Church automate processes and speed its financial close while improving compliance and transparency.
- Sage Intacct will give Grace Church the ability to securely view, understand and take action in response to changing conditions — such as defining financial and operational targets, monitoring costs, and performance.
Highlighted Comments from Grace Church's Finance Director
"The AcctTwo team has a ton of church experience and I could really lean on them when I needed to," said John Rauscher, Finance Director at Grace Church. “I knew that I had a team backing me up as we walked through this. For other software implementations I’ve been involved in I got the feeling that folks hadn’t done many. I didn’t get that feeling with AcctTwo.”
