    Success Story

    Gateway Church

    Fast-growing, multi-site church in Dallas/Ft. Worth teams up with Baker Tilly to implement integrated solutions

    Background

    Comprised of 5 locations, Gateway is a multi-campus, evangelistic, Spirit-empowered church in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex experiencing tremendous growth. After a rigorous software evaluation, Gateway chose Baker Tilly to guide them through the maze of on-premises and cloud solutions to find the best fit to meet the unique needs presented by its ongoing expansion.

    With Baler Tilly, we're excited to see that churches are finally getting access to the sophisticated enterprise software we need.

    Previous accounting challenges

    • Tracking data and generating reports with their legacy accounting system required a great deal of manual work in Excel.
    • The finance team had to calculate average giving by location manually in Excel.
    • Data was not available in real-time. 
    • Analytics and budgeting were difficult and error-prone since they were based in Excel.
    • Lack of accessibility for key leaders was a detriment to making mission-critical decisions.

    We're excited to work with Baker Tilly. They clearly understand the church and are able to bring best practices to the table that will help us get the most out of Sage Intacct.
