Background

Fairhaven Church is a multi-site church for all age groups with a passion for living a journey of faith and telling the story of God’s redeeming love. Fairhaven's worship is vibrant, their preaching is practical, and their ministries help you to grow closer to Jesus. The church has three locations in the Dayton, OH area, with plans for additional campuses in the next couple of years. Fairhaven manages multiple ministries as well as several strategic local and global mission partnerships. After a rigorous evaluation, the church chose AcctTwo over other on-premises and cloud solutions providers as the best team to meet the needs of the organization.

Previous Accounting Challenges

  • Keeping data current and accurate was virtually impossible using their legacy accounting system (Shelby church software) 
  • With three campuses, managing fixed assets between locations was a challenge.
  • Budgets had to be built in Excel, which was a time consuming process for both staff and leadership.
  • Manual payment approval processes were distracting staff from mission-critical tasks.

Benefits Realized With AcctTwo

  • Fairhaven's leaders will have access to data in real-time via easy-to-read dashboards, and from anywhere they have Internet.
  • Electronic workflows and approvals have streamlined manually driven processes, and saved the church finance team time.
  • AcctTwo's open API platform makes it easy to work with other systems, either through a live connection or the integration of an import file automation.
  • AcctTwo connected multiple credit card management platforms, opening the door to better time management when dealing with employee credit card expenses.

Highlighted Comments from Fairhaven Church's Director of Operations

"AcctTwo's ability to integrate and interface with other tools is a huge benefit," said Ryan Adams, Fairhaven's Director of Operations. "We love the reporting flexibility and the ability to view our data in real-time. The dimensions allow us to add or adjust departments without having to recreate everything from scratch, and they also give us the ability to tag transactions and better track expenses, and they have drastically improved our reporting capabilities."

"AcctTwo's church experience was evident and crucial to the success of the project," continued Adams. "We made decisions during the project based on AcctTwo's advice, and looking back we now really see the benefits of those decisions and AcctTwo's experience."
