Consolidated West began operating in 2001. The company’s CFO, Ron Krieger, says they continually had challenges linking their specialized sales software with their accounting software.

Because they couldn’t connect the two systems, Mr. Krieger says, he always had to do double-data entry: “We would have to take all the information and then redo it again in QuickBooks.” He adds, “It was a lot of number-crunching for me, which I wasn’t happy about.”

In 2016 the company switched from QuickBooks to Acumatica and achieved the needed integration, gaining significant time-savings from eliminating double data entry.
