Laguna Development Corporation

“GetLinked software saves us hours of rekeying data and verifies transactions before they reach our accounting system” John Root - Laguna Development Corporation

Company Profile

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.

Situation

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.

Business Solution

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.

Benefits

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.

Monaco Pictures LogoAfter using GetLinked Software for over 6 years, I wanted to take a moment to say thank you, and congratulations, for delivering a solid solution.

We have been using GetLinked to import all of our restaurant sales data into our accounting platform, Great Plains. The process is seamless and allows for the level of detail we need for our reporting purposes. Importing and transferring the data is completed in just a few steps and creates the journal entry that, in the end, generates the reporting data we need to make better management decisions

As a company that runs with very minimal administrative personnel, your solutions suit us perfectly. The setup with your technical team is really simple and fast. Other than when we were setting up on a new system, I can say we have not needed a single support call ... ever. That speaks volumes to the quality and reliability of your product.

We really love the subscription model that is offered. Often times, solutions have huge upfront costs, followed by expensive maintenance contracts. GetTLinked process is simple; a nominal annual fee for a solid solution. I can say with confidence when comparing custom written interface programs for integration, they come at a price that is far greater than six years of renewal costs.

With the success we have had with the POSLink, we have just recently started using the PRLink to automate our payroll. I can tell you after two months of using it, we will have saved more in labor costs, usually spent on processing payroll manually, than the cost of the annual subscription. Again, for a company that runs with a very lean administrative staff, this solution not only saves us money, but will free up time to be spent on other projects

Congratulations again for delivering such a quality product. If I can ever be used as a reference for potential users, feel free to send them my way.

DCRS SOLUTIONS

DCRS LogoIn the world today, people are often quick to point out problems and deficiencies, and rarely take the time to recognize things done well.

Since we have worked with you at Accounting Solutions, Inc. for many years, this note is long overdue. We cannot say enough about the recent “problem solving” that you, your staff, and your GetLinked Software provided to one of our largest accounts.

As you know, this 10,000 seat arena, with a 50 terminal MICROS 9700 system, had some very specific needs when it came to payroll export and interface. Without your multiple solutions, some key personnel at this customer site would not be near as happy! Although a very large team of ours was responsible for much of the success at this large arena project, your solutions helped insure the site’s final satisfaction.

You have a great product at a reasonable price, but your knowledge of customer integration needs, and your delivery, always make it easy for me to refer other POS dealers to you.

Rest assured that I will continue to refer dealers and customers to you.

Thanks again for taking care of our customer.
