Barrington Yacht Club

"GETLINKED SOFTWARE IS EASY TO IMPLEMENT AND EASY TO USE.” - Bob Manchester, Club Treasurer

Company Profile

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.

 

Situation

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.

 

 

Business Solution

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.”

 

Benefits

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.”

LA RONDA BEACH CLUB

La Rhonde Beach Club LogoThe GETLinked product works seamlessly.  Your insight and support was extremely helpful.  La Ronde is starting its third year with this product and it continues to operate flawlessly.

As you may remember, our primary focus was to automatically send all transactions directly to QuickBooks from Digital Dining without rekeying.  The link works exactly as it was designed to operate. With the push of a button La Ronde can print its monthly QuickBooks statements.

We contacted Accounting Solutions, Inc. on several occasions and they helped our staff though the Digital Dining and QuickBooks questions as well as installing the GETLinked modules.  Loading the software was quick and easy from their web site as well as importing customers and transactions details.  We only had to post and print the statements in QuickBooks.

I recommend owners of small/medium businesses as well as accounting staffs consider purchasing GETLinked. It helped reduce costs while increasing accuracy and efficiency.
