Case Study: Established Long Term Care Facility Updates Financials with Dynamics GP

Email | Print

United Methodist Homes is a church-connected, not-for-profit organization committed to providing a diverse selection of high-quality living environments and communities, primarily for seniors. They provide a continuum of long-term care services, from independent living to 24-hour skilled nursing. Founded in 1951, the Binghamton, NY-based organization currently operates 13 facilities located in four campuses in New York and Pennsylvania.

The accounting software United Methodist Homes originally used was a "home-grown," highly customized accounting system built from the ground up and maintained by staff programmers. The system interface was character-driven, not graphical, and numerous manual processes were required to collect and enter data and generate reports. UMH used the system for many years, and eventually it became increasingly difficult to maintain, with extended periods of downtime required for maintenance.

When United Methodist Homes made the decision to identify and implement a new accounting package, they above all wanted a turnkey, out-of-the box solution that required no customization and would be easier to maintain. To evaluate their options, they created a list of "deal-breakers" against which they could compare various vendors and solutions. These critical must-haves included reporting, general ledger, and accounts payable functionality, for which they identified best practices. In addition to their desire for a system with a modern, easy-to-use, graphical user interface, UMH was interested in a solution that could automate as many manual processes as possible.

United Methodist Homes chose Microsoft Dynamics GP as their accounting solution. Dynamics GP easily supports their GL, AP, and intercompany-transaction requirements. The system's user-friendly, graphical user interface includes simple checklists that can be used to perform many tasks. The management reporting capability allows them to build familiar-looking financial statements in which they can drill down to whatever level of detail is required, something they could not do with their old system. And Dynamics GL's multi-entity management functionality makes it easy to bring together and share information for all their facilities.
