Automating Management Reports and Budgeting and Forecasting Functions with Microsoft Dynamics GP, Paragon Delivers Significant Time, Cost Savings to Maple Leaf Farm

Paragon Software Solutions, a Microsoft® Partner, implemented Microsoft Dynamics®GP for Maple Leaf Farm, one of the oldest continuously operating residential drug and alcohol abuse treatment and recovery centers in the country. Maple Leaf had outgrown Intuit® QuickBooks® for accounting and was usingMicrosoft Excel® to create board reports as well as for budgeting and forecasting. Paragon has 25 years of experience with integrating the best of breed financial applications with both vertical and horizontal applications.

Maple Leaf does billing through an electronic medical records system and needed to sync the system with its accounting system. Since there is no import functionality in QuickBooks to its medical records system, they were doing heavy manual entries to keep the system synced.Dynamics GP has automated the process and saved significant time.

“We are experiencing significant time savings in creating management reports and in the budgeting process,” said Therese Butler, CFO at Maple Leaf Farm. “We are better able to manage cash flow using custom reports, and we definitely have stronger audit and drill down tools available to us. With Paragon’s expertise, they were able to work with us to implement the right, most effective solutions for our needs. The implementation went very smoothly.”
