Background

A&F Exports is a poultry trading company that provides traders with a system through which orders can be placed and shipped. After a rigorous software evaluation, A&F chose AcctTwo's platform on which to build their unique trading application.

Previous Business Challenges

  • A&F's legacy system forced the company to manage complex trades in manual spreadsheets and documents.
  • The company found it difficult to manage all aspects of a trade, including a complete picture of trade costs.
  • Providing traders with accurate commission calculations was labor intensive and required error-prone manual processes.
  • The legacy system could not provide adequate reporting on trade information and did not support dimensional reporting based on products, offices, and trades.

Benefits Realized With AcctTwo

  • A&F Exports and its traders needed a system where they could manage all aspects of their trade from a single location, and view all components of a trade summarized together on a clear dashboard.
  • Building the new trading system entirely on the Sage Intacct platform provides the accounting department with seamless access to trading information.
  • AcctTwo's superior reporting expertise allows the company to create powerful reports and analytics on both financial and non-financial data.

Thanks to AcctTwo's development expertise on the Sage Intacct platform, a development environment that allows customers and partners to extend their ERP by creating custom fields, objects, and applications, AcctTwo was able to build a complete custom trading application to meet A&F's specifications and business needs.

"The fact that the AcctTwo team was able to build a fully functioning trading application on the Sage Intacct Platform - seamlessly integrating it with Sage Intacct's core accounting system - highlights the power and extensibility of Sage Intacct," said Marcus Wagner, Founder and CEO of AcctTwo. "Companies no longer have to settle for line-of-business applications that are not integrated with the accounting system, or operational systems that can't be tailored to meet very specific requirements to create competitive advantage."
