Success Story: Galaxy Media
Galaxy Media is a digital media company offering subscription video services and live streaming for events. Their goal is to create engaging experiences for fans worldwide, and take advantage of the latest and greatest digital technologies to attract and connect with customers.
Even though the team at Galaxy Media was using Sage Intacct’s easy-to-use financial management and accounting software and Concur’s expense and invoicing solution, they depended on email to drive their expense and invoice approval process. That means they were manually entering transaction details into Intacct, putting data accuracy at risk as well as slowing down an already cumbersome process. They wanted to establish an approval work flow that would accommodate at least one approval per invoice while making it it easy for team members to go into their system and find out if an invoice was approved, and who approved it.
Galaxy Media engaged Wipfli to implement their ExpenseConnect and InvoiceConnect connector solutions. These customized third-party connectors make it possible for vendor and invoice information to track between Concur and Sage Intacct automatically, eliminating the need for the finance team to go through the arduous process of manually converting txt files to delineated files.
With the integrations, an employee can enter expense and invoice details directly into Concur. Since Wipfli defined data mappings and integration settings within Galaxy Media’s Sage Intacct —without custom development—the appropriate transactions are seamlessly moved over for processing with no additional steps.
The Galaxy Media team has found their solution easy-to-use and timesaving, while reducing the risk of manual errors. Working with the client support team at Wipfli, they’ve appreciated the quick turnaround on getting any issues resolved.
“We wanted to sync both vendors and invoices from Concur into Sage Intacct and create an approval work ow that would accommodate one or two approvals per invoice and track its progress. We learned how simply Wipfli’s connectors would work—and they’re really easy. They work flawlessly.” – Shannon Santopietro Financial Systems Project Manager
