GetLinked Delivers Fast Integration System for Jimmy John’s

Financial Integration is now Electronic for Jimmy John’s Owners Using MacromatiX point of sale

March 7GetLinked® software is now being used in Jimmy John’s franchise locations interfacing their MacromatiX (Hot Schedules) point of sale system to financial accounting systems. GetLinked integrates point of sale systems to accounting systems eliminating manual entries into the accounting system. The software provides faster and more accurate accounting transactions between point of sale and financial systems.

MacromatiX is a common point of sale system used by Jimmy John’s franchises and GetLinked has now made it very affordable and easy to implement. “Any Jimmy John’s can now integrate their MacromatiX point of sale system to hundreds of accounting systems for multiple locations in a matter of just a few hours.” says Jim DeFede, a development manager with GetLinked.

Daily sales are one of the primary concerns of franchise owners and GetLinked has the ability for users to import all their transactions including sales, payments, refunds, discounts, taxes and more, assign account numbers from their financial system one time and automate the daily import and transfer of balanced transactions. It allows users to select amounts to be automatically transferred to predetermined accounts and identify variances.

GetLinked can be installed internally providing Jimmy John’s franchise owners with the ability to transfer sales data from multiple locations in one mass transfer. They can then review the financials in their accounting system or from anywhere in the world 24 hours a day by logging into a secure site if using a cloud based financial system.

Any Jimmy John’s can now integrate their MacromatiX point of sale system to hundreds of accounting systems for multiple locations in a matter of just a few hours.

Franchise owners using an outside accounting firm can have GetLinked accessed remotely for the preparation of timely financial reporting thereby lowering overall costs.

GetLinked continues to work on bringing financial integration to many industries like Jimmy John’s as well as other restaurants, hospitality and health/fitness franchises. The MacromatiX interface adds to the number of interfaces developed by GetLinked the past 30+ years to over 750.

Service providers, such as accounting firms and payroll processors, have also discovered the benefits of using GetLinked to provide financial integration to franchise owners.

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.

Folks Southern Kitchen

As part of a plan to save in administrative labor, increase proficiency, and eliminate error, Folks chose GetLinked as the solution to integrate their POSitouch® point of sale system to their Microsoft® Great Plains Dynamics® accounting system.

Company Profile

Folks has provided a menu of southern cooking to their guests throughout the Atlanta, GA area for over 15 years. They currently operate 17 locations and have plans of expanding in the next couple of years.

Situation

In order to expand their operations, owner Rick Pratt put forth the order to turn Folks into a high tech corporation. IT Manager Brandon Lockridge found that one of their bigger downfalls was the extreme amount for time they were spending rekeying the data from their locations into the financial system.

Business Solution

Folks wanted to automate as much as possible. After evaluating their business needs, ASI worked with them to implement three of GetLinked’s modules. The POSLink module handles all their daily sales transactions, the PRLink handles their payroll transactions for their 700+ employees, and the APLink handles all of their Payables transactions.

Benefits

GetLinked is saving Folks over 6 days of labor every two weeks by integrating their POSitouch point of sale system to their Microsoft Great Plains Dynamics accounting system.

Big Boy International

With over 455 World Wide locations, Big Boy International was looking for a business intelligence tool that could interface their Oracle relational database to their Payroll Service. To handle this integration Big Boy chose the GetLinked software solution from Accounting Solutions, Inc.

Company Profile

Big Boy of Michigan started in 1952 as the first Franchisees of Big Boy Restaurants and became the Worldwide Franchiser in 1987. Big Boy is an International sit-down Restaurant chain with over 455 worldwide locations.

Situation

After evaluating different Payroll services Big Boy chose Paychex payroll processing services to handle the sheer volume of employee transactions. However, a major concern was how to interface their Time and Attendance data residing in an Oracle Database to the Paychex system.

A major obstacle was that the Paychex product does not have the ability to interface directly with Oracle. Without an integration solution, Big Boy would not be able to make the switch to Paychex.  GETLinked was the perfect solution for their integration issues.

 

Business Solution

Computer operations director Donald Bochenek with Big Boy International was looking for a product that required no programming intervention by his staff and little if any support.

“In evaluating Big Boys’ needs we could truly see the benefits that GetLinked would provide based upon the enormous amount of employee transactions that were occurring,” states Jim DeFede for Accounting Solutions, Inc. All payroll information from Big Boy is downloaded to their corporate office every Monday morning. GetLinked imports, validates, and then transfers that data into Paychex.

GetLinked was the prefect solution for their integration issues. GetLinked allows Big Boy to import their Oracle Time and Attendance data, validate the data, and then transfer the validated data to Paychex. GetLinked eliminated the manual rekeying process.

 

Benefits

Analysis of data becomes critical to a company the size of Big Boy. Any time you can eliminate manual labor it will only increase the ability to make use of the data received.

GetLinked, working in concert with Paychex, has saved Big Boy numerous hours in manual labor. Bochenek states, “there is no longer any manual labor involved to move our edited payroll files from Oracle to the Paychex payroll system. Installing the GetLinked suite software from their website went smoothly without any problems.”

GetLinked‘s ability to eliminate the possibility of rekeying errors was essential to Big Boy with increased confidence and insuring data integrity.  GetLinked’s integration abilities allowed Big Boy to implement their desired payroll processing service.

By eliminating the rekeying of payroll data, GETLinked has saved countless hours of labor input every payroll period for Big Boy’s 2,100+ employees.

CHEESEBURGER RESTAURANTS

Cheese Burger Restaurants LogoSorry I haven’t had a chance to call you after the payroll setup was complete.

It has been running great and we now have all 7 restaurants doing the payroll through GETLinked. We have had very few issues which Buddy has been able to handle for the most part.

I wanted to tell you that I attended a restaurant seminar yesterday, and of course, got to talk about your software to some of the attendees. I spent the most time with a group of CPA’s and accountants who have restaurant owners as clients. So, I hope you get lots of business going your way.

I love talking about all the things it will do for them and I love seeing the look on their faces.

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.

CUISINE CONCEPTS

I just wanted to write you a quick note to thank you for providing us with a much needed software solution like GetLinked to link our FoodTrak system with our Great Plains Dynamics accounting System.

You and your staff were extremely helpful with the implementation and training of the program. The install was a snap, the program loaded seamlessly with Great Plains Dynamics and looks and works just like it was an integral part of the original Dynamics software!

GetLinked is quick and easy to use…just a click of a button and all of our invoices are imported and entered automatically. No more double-entry of invoices, and the edit feature also flags invoices that have been previously entered, so we’re sure that we’re not double paying someone.

GetLinked has saved us hours and hours of data entry, and has dramatically improved the efficiency of our operations.

Thanks again for a fantastic program!!!
