Dimensions Accounting Software: Why it Matters.

Sage Intacct with Dimensions Accounting Software - Business Metrics without Exploding Your Chart of Accounts

In today’s fast-paced business environment, senior managers require real-time metrics to measure the performance of their organizations. And, as the need for information increases, the time window to react and make informed decisions decreases.

When I meet with managers of companies at all levels, they tell me they need not only financial metrics but also business metrics that give them visibility over all their business drivers (units, operations, products, locations, projects, etc.) to identify those that are performing well and those that are not performing so well.

Dimensions in Accounting Software and Church Succession Planning

How Is Dimensional Accounting Software a Must-Have for Churches?

I'm excited to follow up Baran Sonmez's recent blog post on Dimensions in Accounting Software with a look at how dimensionality is particularly important in the world of churches and faith-based organizations. For some background, I'm a Professional Services Manager at AcctTwo. As a tax accountant, programmer, and Intacct reporting and implementation specialist, I've spent more than 25 years in finance and technology, particularly church finance, and I've held financial analyst and finance director positions at two churches in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. I have a little experience with this!

Dimensions in Accounting Software

From the Perspective of an AcctTwo Implementation Consultant

I was recently asked what aspect of implementing Intacct's accounting and ERP software seems to have the greatest impact and benefit for our customers, and I would have to say that, in my opinion, Intacct's Dimensions are the most impactful feature that we implement. Most of our customers come from a world of legacy accounting software that required them to add dozens or hundreds (and even thousands!) of GL accounts to their accounting system just to make a specific distinction that can be done easily with dimensions. As an example, customers might have an account for Fixed Assets. If they wanted to report on that account by location, they would have to create a separate account for Fixed Assets for each location. With dimensions, we're able to set up just one account, but we can still report on that account by location or any other aspect we define.
