Acumatica quickly made life easier. “Right out of the gate, the intercompany bookings were tremendous,” Troiano said. “It was just so easy. And running checks through the AP module was very straightforward and very easy to manipulate. I could choose all invoices, pay some, or pay all for one vendor.”
Seaport streamlined its bank reconciliations, quickly updated its chart of accounts and subaccounts, and consolidated reports that previously consisted of 20 pages into two to three pages, Troiano said. “It’s a good, user-friendly product. I was able to easily train our office manager and CFO how to use it.”
With Acumatica, Seaport has shortened the time it takes to perform intercompany postings by five hours every quarter. “I save about a quarter of my time by not having to do manual reconciliations for all the closings,” Troiano said.
Having a cloud-based ERP that can be accessed remotely gave the team peace of mind that if another disaster like Hurricane Sandy hits, they will be prepared. “You don’t know you need disaster recovery until you’ve lived through a disaster,” Troiano said. “Knowing we are backed up completely off-site is really helpful. We can log in from anywhere. If you’re not in the office, you can pull up Acumatica and feel just like you’re sitting at your own desktop.”
