"GETLINKED SOFTWARE IS EASY TO IMPLEMENT AND EASY TO USE.” - Bob Manchester, Club Treasurer
Formed in 1908, Barrington Yacht Club is a seasonal yacht club in Barrington, Rhode Island. They have over 425 members, which include world champion sailors.
Members enjoy a full range of services including a complete yacht Racing program for sailors of all abilities and boats of all classes, year round social Events, and four Cruises each year to various New England ports of call.
Due to an increase in growth, Barrington Yacht Club needed to gain more control of the financial aspects of the club as well as develop a more automated system. They were in the process of implementing a Positouch POS system and a Peachtree accounting system. They were still manually filling out paper sales slips and needed to update their entire system to a more automated one. Since the club operates partially on a volunteer basis they needed a system that would be simple and efficient for a bookkeeper with limited experience. Although the POS and accounting systems were very useful there was still the issue of manually moving data between the systems.
GetLinked was implemented along with the POS system and accounting system, simplifying the entire process for a bookkeeper with limited experience.
With GetLinked software, Barrington Yacht Club has eliminated the manual process of entering financial data into the clubs accounting software.
Bob Manchester, the clubs volunteer treasurer, states that “The process is easy to use and transfers everything to the accounting system error free.”
The benefits to the Barrington Yacht Club have been the time saved manually rekeying data and having accurate numbers without having to worry about hand keying errors. Time saving measures that GetLinked software provides are especially important for volunteers and enables the club to employ one part time bookkeeper.
Additionally, Manchester states that “Accounting Solutions customer support has been prompt and effective.”
