What Industries Benefit from GetLinked?

Accuracy, efficiency, and speed are critical to your organization’s continued success. But what you’re currently dealing with when it comes to gathering, sorting, and organizing financial data is anything but efficient, accurate, or speedy!
In fact, you or your employees are spending so much time manually integrating and processing information from within your current payroll, sales, and purchasing tools. Exhausting, right? It’s a waste of both time and resources, and you’re fed up and ready for a change.
Right now, you’re looking for a financial integration software specifically tailored to your industry’s intricacies. After doing your research, you’ll find that across industries, our product is the financial integration software of choice.
Here, we’ll share how we help a wide range of industries, a testament to GetLinked’s unparalleled versatility.

Accounting and Bookkeeping

Accounting firms are well versed handling financial data, but they also need software that helps to integrate that data from many different point of sale systems with their accounting systems. They also want the ability to process heavy loads of data in a quick and virtually error-free environment. Working with GetLinked allows them to achieve the integration and data processing that allows them to do their jobs in a more efficient and accurate manner.

Our customers in the accounting industry are experts in managing multiple projects on tight deadlines to keep their customers satisfied. When they partner with GetLinked, these firms decrease cost and margin of error, while also improving productivity, bolstering return on investment, and strengthening relationships with their customers.


Hotels, resorts, cruise lines, and other travel-related organizations share very similar priorities. These industries are focused on providing an impeccable experience to their valued customers. However, the travel industry faces so many variables and moving parts to navigate an excellent customer experience. Even minor errors prove to have major consequences — for both the industry and the customers they serve.

GetLinked makes your financial work both seamless and flawless—saving time and stress.

By partnering with us, hotels, resorts, cruise lines, or any other subset of the travel industry can stay on top of every transaction, from every revenue center — perfect for both business and pleasure!


Hosting large-scale events requires one eye on the big picture and another focused on details to ensure the experience provided ends in perfection. That’s a lot of pressure on the entertainment industry!

When it comes to casinos, stadiums, arenas, and other entertainment venues, we understand that even their most attentive employees may make unnecessary errors — they’re human after all.

GetLinked helps our entertainment industry customers to manage all their financial nuances and hone your attention on what matters most: your guests. This way, they can focus on providing an exceptional experience, whether it be helping concert goers rock out, feeding a stadium of hungry football fans, or keeping the cards dealt to casino goers. It’s a win-win for everyone!

 Health and Fitness

There’s so much to consider in the health and fitness industry. First, and most importantly, is the health of their customers, but in a business sense, these companies are also stressing about membership fees, sales and equipment costs, employee time clock and payroll data, and more!  Finances take up a lot of brain space (and manual time and effort) for health and fitness organizations.

Smart health and fitness organizations refuse to be swallowed up by the myriad financial details that make their business run smoothly. We help to streamline your processes so you can devote your time to the most important part of your business: Your customers!

 Restaurants and Food Institutions

It doesn’t matter if a restaurant is considered a small-town gem or an international franchise, there’s one thing we know for sure: crunching numbers isn’t the most exciting part of their business! They’d rather focus on providing an excellent customer experience while crafting food that is out of this world.

And let’s not forget about the sector that supplies food as an integral service, like hospitals, schools, or other enterprises that provide thousands of meals every day. With such high utilization, streamlining financial services is integral to being efficient.

GetLinked saves our customers in the restaurant and food industries countless hours by speeding up their accounting transactions for more immediate (and accurate) results—so they can get back to doing what they love best — feeding their loyal customers.

Additional Industries

What we’ve shared above is certainly not an exhaustive list of all the industries we support. From payroll service providers to public and private clubs to franchises and beyond, we’re happy to support organizations from across a wide spectrum of new, burgeoning, and existing organizations. Have a question  about whether our product would fit the industry you’re in? Reach out and ask!

From accounting firms to hotels to casinos, restaurants, fitness centers, and beyond, GetLinked® is transforming industry standards for finance. Learn about what type of customers GetLinked serves , or find out more about how our subscription service works .

Laguna Development Corporation

I see it as a very important element in helping to make our business run smoothly and efficiently.”,
Michael Vodde, Controller

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.


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 ChekPoint 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 Software.   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  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.

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 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.
