Multisite church automates reporting and dashboards with Sage Intacct

Fast-growing, multisite church in Dallas/Ft. Worth teams up with Baker Tilly Digital to implement integrated solutions with Sage Intacct.

Client background

Comprised of five locations, Gateway is a multicampus, evangelistic, Spirit-empowered church in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex experiencing tremendous growth. After a rigorous software evaluation, Gateway chose Baker Tilly Digital to guide them through the maze of on-premises and cloud solutions to find the best fit to meet the unique needs presented by its ongoing expansion.

With Baker Tilly, we're excited to see that churches are finally getting access to the sophisticated enterprise software we need.

The business challenge

  • Tracking data and generating reports with their legacy accounting system required a great deal of manual work in Excel
  • The finance team had to calculate average giving by location manually in Excel
  • Data was not available in real-time
  • Analytics and budgeting were difficult and error-prone since they were based in Excel
  • Lack of accessibility for key leaders was a detriment to making mission-critical decisions
We're excited to work with Baker Tilly. They clearly understand the church and are able to bring best practices to the table that will help us get the most out of Sage Intacct.
Monty Carpenter, Director of Business Administration, Gateway Church
