“GetLinked software saves us hours of rekeying data and verifies transactions before they reach our accounting system” John Root - Laguna Development Corporation
Laguna Development Corporation was established in 1999 to manage the casino and retail businesses owned by the Pueblo of Laguna. Their diverse businesses are all conveniently located off Interstate 40 West of Albuquerque. Employing 1200 people, they are a major employment provider in the area with a reputation for providing quality products in a friendly, impeccable atmosphere.
Located in Albuquerque, New Mexico Laguna Development Corporation operates a casino comprised of 11 revenue centers and 26 purchasing centers. These centers include a casino, RV Park, Fueling Station, C-Store, Ace Hardware, Taco Bell, Dairy Queen, Grocery Store, Snack Bar, Gift Shop, Video Rental, Arcade and more.
Laguna Development had a staff spending 40+ hours a week manually rekeying their daily sales and purchases. The original accounting processes were very inconsistent. They explored the option of internal programming to create a custom solution.
The Laguna Development staff were manually rekeying the daily sales and purchases for all the different revenues and cost centers from reports. They considered developing their own internal system for all the different transactions, but decided to use GETLinked™ Software connected to four different systems. Their existing systems included micros® Point Sale and Sale, Store Chek Point of Sale, CBORD Purchasing system and MAS200 Financial Accounting system.
GetLinked was a great solution for Laguna. GetLinked allows them to get their data from their 11 revenue centers with the GetLinked software (Sales and Payroll) and keep track of their 26 purchasing centers with GetLinked APLink module (Payables) all with one piece of software.
Edward Khater along with the management at Laguna Development decided to implement GETLinked™. John Root was in charge of implementing the system and worked with GETLinked™ staff to complete the implementation. The solution implemented electronically transfers all the daily sales, payroll and purchases within the different systems to GETLinked™ software. GETLinked™ software converts the data into valid accounting transactions and transfers them into the appropriate MAS200 modules of General Ledger, Payroll and Payables.
GetLinked has saved Laguna Development time by allowing their data to be automatically transferred into their accounting with speed and accuracy. This has enabled the company to replace the work of 3-4 employees spending over 40 hours a week with one employee.
GetLinked™ has benefited Laguna Development in many ways: It has reduced the cost of manually rekeying data, eliminated the amount of human errors, increased the accuracy of data and saved money with the speed of transferring data into their accounting system. All of this leads to decreased labor costs and increased profitability.
