Legacy Healthcare moves to a cloud-based ERP solutionMassey consulting gives legacy healthcare better reporting and greater efficiency in the cloud
Legacy Healthcare Services provides seniors with a variety of services in 10 states and the District of Columbia.
Multiple locations and multiple services provide a unique reporting challenge for the Legacy accounting department. In fact, the accounting team needs to produce nearly 300 different reports each month.
Legacy worked with Massey Consulting to replace their on-premise accounting solution with a cloud-based solution that provided greater flexibility for reporting, integration with other mission-critical software solutions and operates in their paperless office environment.
Legacy Healthcare Services was feeling the constraints of Microsoft Dynamics GP. The on-premise solution had long ago fallen behind the needs of the fast-growing healthcare organization. In fact, Legacy fell seven years behind on software updates because they were overwhelmingly time-consuming for the department.
Legacy’s CFO Jeff Huffman knew it was time to make a change. He wanted to replace his system with a solution that would give their management team access to more analytical views of the business.
Legacy Healthcare produces nearly 300 different financial statements monthly, and Microsoft Dynamics GP did not offer the ability to create a general ledger that was efficient for Legacy. “To structure all 300 different versions, we needed to have a system with a backbone that could handle it,” said Jay Huffman, Legacy Healthcare CFO.
“Upon taking my position at Legacy, I had a lunch with Philip Massey and Jim Stubanas” said Huffman. “I felt completely at ease with the consulting firm choice afterward and looked to them for advice on moving to a new ERP system.”
Massey Consulting demonstrated the abilities of Intacct with emphasis on the dimensional reporting capabilities that would simplify and automate the tremendous reporting requirements of Legacy.Moving to Intacct would eliminate the tedious and disruptive need to install multiple upgrades for the legacy solution. Going forward, Legacy wouldn’t have to worry about software updates due to cloud delivery of their application as all upgrades happen behind the scenes and far more frequently than every 12 – 18 months.

“Now that Legacy has implemented Intacct, they have more flexible reporting that accommodates their specific business needs. And, with updates that happen four times a year, Legacy can maximize their use of Intacct and the evolution of the ERP system without the hassle of manual updates. Legacy’s need of a paperless system was also met with Intacct.
“Intacct, overall, is a more simplified system,” said Huffman. “Intacct gives you greater reporting capabilities. There is a better general use of our ERP system since moving to Intacct.”
