The Crossing exists to transform lives through education by focusing on the heart and mind. The Crossing provides students with an excellent academic education by maintaining accreditation with the Indiana Department of Education and maintaining a balance of certified teachers and professionals of varying expertise. After a rigorous software evaluation, The Crossing chose Sage Intacct over other on-premises and cloud solutions as the best fit to meet the needs of the organization.

Previous Business Challenges

  • The lack of automation and integration between The Crossing's various business systems resulted in a number of manual processes, which were inefficient and error-prone.
  • Their processes were not scalable for the growth of their operations.
  • There wasn't enough transparency in reporting across the board.
  • Too much of the finance and accounting department’s time was spent mining data out of the various sources in order to prepare the desired reporting and analytics.

Benefits Realized With AcctTwo

  • The Crossing significantly benefitted from more integration and process automation, reducing or eliminating manual and error-prone processes.
  • AcctTwo connected their donor management in Salesforce with their accounting system.
  • The finance team communicates faster and smarter to strengthen teamwork, expedite processes, and improve decision making.
  • The Crossing can adapt to business changes without losing efficiency or waiting for IT customizations to modify their system.

Highlighted Comments from The Crossing's CFO and Assistant Controller

"Everyone says their business is unique, but ours truly has some unique complexities," said Mike Jaarda, The Crossing's Chief Financial Officer. "AcctTwo took the time to understand our organization. Sage Intacct's Dimensions are a lifeline for us. We have so many locations and we're very divisional. Having the flexibility associated with Dimensions is huge for us. What used to take a couple of days in QuickBooks now is done with the click of a button."

"AcctTwo's team is the best I've ever encountered," said Becky Brown, Assistant Controller. "I used to work on implementations and I wish we could have done as good a job as they did."

"We felt like AcctTwo's only client," added Jaarda.
