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.

The Piada Group LogoAs our organization continues to grow, I am continuously looking for ways to effectively leverage overhead by improving the efficiency of our accounting department.

With the use of GetLinked software I am able to electronically import our daily sales transactions in a fraction of the time that it would take to manually enter. I cannot say enough great things about how much this product has improved the integration of our POS and accounting systems.

GetLinked’s support has been superior with helping me with all my needs. If any issue ever arises, which is infrequent, it is resolved within 24 hours or sooner.

I would highly recommend the use of this software to any restaurant that wants to automate the flow of sales information and do so with minimal headache.
