Fitness leader invests in digital strategy to streamline and scale business.
Business software consultancy, Percipient, today announced that fitness leader, Lifestyle Fitness, has deployed Sage Intacct. Providing an integrated platform from which to streamline its financials and deliver visibility across the company’s 24 sites, the solution will facilitate greater transparency and expedite reporting, while scaling to support future growth plans.
Lifestyle Fitness selected Sage Intacct to replace a legacy system based on a number of factors. The award-winning platform’s ability to deliver real-time insights through a fully integrated platform, which could be accessed by anyone across the business, was key, as was its ability to streamline reporting. The credentials and hospitality experience of Percipient in leading the deployment also instilled confidence and was complementary to the selection of Sage Intacct.
Sage Intacct is designed for modern businesses looking for simple-to-use systems. It makes sense of complexities to deliver intelligent, in-depth insights, and has facilitated seamless operations for our finance team and beyond.
Sage Intacct for Leisure
“The decision to move to a new, cloud-based system for our financial management was unanimous, and having seen Sage Intacct in practice we had absolute confidence it was the right solution for us going forward,” comments David Wilson, Senior Accountant, Lifestyle Fitness. “We were already using Sage Payroll and having seen several demos of Sage Intacct, we were impressed with how comprehensive the system was, its ease of use, and the speed at which reports could be generated.”
Now live, Lifestyle Fitness can see information on any aspect of the business at the click of a button, drilling down to as much detail as is necessary. The quality of the insights is incredibly high, and as well as slashing reporting time by half, the system has expedited decision-making and planning.
“Whereas previously, it took a great deal of time to create our management accounts before e-mailing them to the executive team, we now simply create them in minimal time, flag that they are ready, and the board can access and drill down into those elements they need at that time. Profit and loss accounts on each individual club are available to tab across and view, and indeed compare, where needed. This granular detail on each site is particularly important, as its clubs all operate on different business models,” David adds.
“Sage Intacct is designed for modern businesses looking for simple-to-use systems. It makes sense of complexities to deliver intelligent, in-depth insights, and has facilitated seamless operations for our finance team and beyond. We have an immense amount of confidence when it comes to understanding, developing and expanding our business, and we now have the scale to expand as our plans dictate.”
