Winged Disc Technologies: Conversion to QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions
It’s Clear Cut for Film & Vinyl Designs
“ This conversion was a classic example of what we love to do! Winged Disc Technologies was able to move Film & Vinyl Designs from an expensive, difficult to use accounting package to an integrated business management solution with QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions. They now have a system where they handle payroll, payments and accounting – all in one place.”
Haiden Turner, Intuit ProAdvisor, Owner of Winged Disc Technologies
Brett Wassell, owner of Film & Vinyl Designs LLC, decided that 2007 was the last year he would overpay for a financial management system that didn’t meet his company’s needs.
With MAS90 Sage, Brett’s company had different software solutions for shipping, inventory, payroll and payments.
In addition to the complexity of five separate software packages, expenses were piling up and Brett could not justify the cost of his MAS90 Sage system as his business continued to grow.
Solution: Intuit QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions
• Using QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions, we integrated financial management, inventory, payroll and shipping solutions.
• QuickBooks Conversion Expert and ProAdvisor: Haiden Turner, Winged Disc Technologies.
• Using QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions – a customized business management solution was developed by Haiden Turner to solve unique business needs.
• Savings of $10,000 annually on maintenance, upgrades and support
• Substantial time savings with an integrated solution
• Larger hiring pool due to the vast familiarity of QuickBooks
Brett said, “We went from having different services for accounting, payroll, shipping and payments to having one contact point with QuickBooks.”
Customized, Integrated QuickBooks Solution
Film & Vinyl Designs builds software packages that interface with advanced, cutting systems used to create patterns and graphics on film or vinyl. Film & Vinyl Designs customizable, all-in-one software suite has helped hundreds of companies save time and money.
It’s no wonder that Brett expected his Financial Management package to do the same. When Brett decided it was time for a change in 2008, his company left the MAS90 Sage system and turned to QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions.
Intuit directed Brett to Haiden Turner of Winged Disc Technologies, a DFW Authorized Intuit Solution Provider. With Haiden’s help, Film & Vinyl Designs converted to a cost effective, all-in-one accounting software package.
This package used QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions, including Payroll and QuickBooks Merchant Services. Brett said, “We went from having different services for accounting, payroll, shipping and payments – to having one contact point with QuickBooks.”
“Everything seemed to be incredibly easy to turn on with Enterprise Solutions. The way the system applies the acceptance of credit card payments back to each invoice is a huge benefit – I’m not playing with pennies. It’s all one vendor, so I have one source for support. And with QuickBooks Payroll Services, it takes just a couple minutes to run payroll each month,” said Brett.
In 2017, Direct Deposit is a time saving option for businesses and employees, included in QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions, Payroll Services.
Winged Disc Technologies Managed QuickBooks Conversion
The transition from MAS90 Sage took two days as the Winged Disc Technologies imported all the critical company information. Haiden Turner also developed a number of custom reporting applications specific to Film & Vinyl Designs. The company chose to run QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions side by side with MAS90 Sage before converting fully two months later.
As Brett said, “I knew it was time for a change, but employees who had been working in the same system for years were reluctant.” After a day of hands on training from Winged Disc Technologies, the company fully converted to QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions and never looked back.
With QuickBooks as the accounting software, the hiring pool changes. “With MAS90 Sage, covering and interchanging employees was nearly impossible. Nobody knew what others were doing, so even taking time off was tough. With QuickBooks, our whole team can run the package. We used to hire people based on whether they knew MAS90 Sage or not. This was a very limited number of potential employees; because MAS90 Sage was such a complicated program. Those were very expensive employees,” said Brett.
For a growing business, the flexibility and ease of use of QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions has meant that Brett can train employees the day they on-board.
A Day with QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions
QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions has proven to be a highly customizable solution that everyone in the company can take advantage of. Brett said, “Use of our new system is constant – we run QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions on two computers all day and we do everything from the same place. We’re checking orders, placing purchase orders, and we’re constantly getting phone calls asking if we have certain parts. I now have an instantly updated, integrated system where I check for everything in one place.”
Empowering employees to be effective across the entire software system has saved Film & Vinyl Designs time – and money.
