"Reporting in D365 Business Central is unbelievable! Everything ties together. I have a single pane of glass through which I can see how every aspect of our organization is doing."
Ammolite Technology move to Business Central to help manage their business across multiple countries.
Ammolite Technology are a small, boutique IT services provider. Finding their niche helping clients throughout Western Canada solve their security, networking, software, and hardware needs.
As Rich Hodgkinson, Co-founder & Head of Operations for Ammolite Technology, puts it: “We’re boutique – building relationships is at the heart of what we do. Our focus is being a strategic technology advisor for our clients as well as their one-stop-shop for all things IT.”
They’ve recently expanded into the United States, opening an office in Houston, Texas. And that’s precisely when things started to get sticky with their previous accounting system.
When Ammolite started their business they were using Wave, a 'freemium' online accounting system for invoicing and accounting. However with Ammolite's rapid growth, integrating other applications with their accounting solution became a priority, and it became apparent that Wave had real limitations that they couldn't work round.
After opening their US office, with a second legal entity they needed to manage their accounts in both Canadian and US Dollars, something Wave simply doesn't support.
As a Microsoft Partner, Microsoft Business Central was the perfect solution for them. After getting started themselves, it became apparent that more financial expertise was needed. That's where we came in.
It's often difficult to find a Business Central Partner who will work with small businesses, as they tend to focus on larger organizations.
Ammolite was referred to Bam Boom Cloud through a partner, as we specialize in working directly with small businesses.
Engaging with them, answering their questions, and giving structure and guidance for the implementation project, Bam Boom Cloud helped Ammolite build a plan that would get them up and running on Business Central in no time.
• Fixed costs, stress free implementation.
• Real-time reporting across the whole business in multiple countries
• Streamlined invoicing
• Increased after sales service
• Saving time and money by only implementing the features they need
• Future proofed system that can expand as the business does
“The Bam Boom Cloud team was exceptionally helpful right from the start. They knew exactly how to coach a non-finance person through the implementation and use of Business Central.”
Huge time savings & multiple country reporting
Business Central helped Ammolite Technology bring all their systems together with the powerful integration and automation tools in Business Central. Allowing them to track the whole business across multiple offices in different countries.
These tools helped them save days of manual processing team each month, and gives them real-time reporting so they can see how every aspect of the organization is doing.
“I dreaded invoicing every month. I had to take our invoice amounts from one system and manually input them into Wave.
Having integrated our other applications with Business Central, we save multiple staff days a month. There is also a potential uplift of revenue coming from labor savings and increased accuracy by avoiding manual data entry.”
“Bam Boom Cloud’s team has the advanced expertise to handle every aspect of our project, along with any challenge we may face in the future.
There’s a bit of sticker-shock when, as a small company, you see a fixed fee proposal for thousands of dollars. But once you get started with the project, receiving first-class implementation assistance and training, the value quickly comes into focus. It was well worth it."
