Aerial Access Equipment is an independent aerial work platform and forklift rental specialist company serving Gulf Coast customers from five locations. DeAnna Freeman, a former InTempo customer and current member of our Professional Services team, spent several days onsite at Aerial Access Equipment to analyze their system processes and make recommendations. Controller Fawn Robicheaux talks about the experience.
Fawn: We’ve known we needed some training for quite a while. When I started at Aerial Access Equipment, the CFO was also new. Now we’re trying to learn as much as we can about the software. We open tickets with InTempo’s Customer Support team when we need assistance, but I knew it was time to be proactive about getting training. And while DeAnna did provide training, she also opened our eyes to some things Enterprise can do that we weren’t aware of.
Q: Did you have one major ‘pain point’ or problem you were looking to solve?
Fawn: Yes, we wanted to reduce the time it takes to close the books each month. DeAnna is helping us make process improvements, like automating the many month-end reports we run. We’re working on the solution together, and once it’s done there will be a huge time-savings for me. Right now, I probably spend about four hours each month running just the bookkeeping reports. We also have a KPI (key performance indicator) report that goes out to management. DeAnna is helping us automate this report too, so we don’t have to go in and manually plug in the numbers every day.
Q: What areas of training did she provide that were particularly helpful to you?
Fawn: DeAnna spent time with me, and with our AR and AP people, and watched us work. From there, she started to make recommendations. She was able to show us how to do some things more easily or efficiently, and use shortcuts in the system. For example, one of our employees had been entering invoice headers in a way that created unnecessary work, which led to inaccuracies. DeAnna showed her how she could improve the process. Another example is that DeAnna showed me how to enter items in the system as prepaid, which automatically creates a journal entry every month. This is huge for me, so I don’t have to do manual entries. We also got training on Roleplay and Reporter. Like the saying goes, “You don’t know what you don’t know! Even the small tips DeAnna gave us are going to add up over time in terms of data accuracy in the system and ease of doing everyday tasks.
B&G Equipment and Supply rents and sells a wide range of equipment (earthmoving, aerial, compaction, marine, tools, and cranes) across six locations throughout the Southeast. DeAnna helped the accounting department at BGES automate repetitive processes and cut hours off of month end. Controller Betsy Lumpkin talks about her experience.
Q: What lead you to work with DeAnna?
Betsy: I was looking for a way to cut down on a time-consuming process. If you’re entering an invoice in Accounts Payable, you have to key in the vendor number, invoice number, and dollar amount. Then, if the invoice doesn’t have a PO number associated with it, you have to key in the GL number. This can take up a lot of time, especially for recurring invoices you get on a monthly basis...We were looking for a way to make this more efficient, so that’s where DeAnna started working with us.
Q: How was she able to help?
Betsy: She set us up with a web-based tool called AP Upload. What it does is enable us to use a spreadsheet (accountants love spreadsheets!) and then import the file for recurring invoices. DeAnna and the InTempo team set up templates for us. We know the GL numbers that are normally used, so all we have to do in the templates is key in the invoice numbers and dollar amounts. It cuts down on keystrokes—now it’s just two fields that need to be entered. Say we have ten power bills to pay, our AP accountant can go in and just change a few lines. It is so much easier using one spreadsheet than going through the various screens to key in the vendor number, invoice number, distribution line, and description, while hitting “enter” each time. After updating the two fields on the template, there are just two screens to validate the data and import it, and it’s done. At month end and crunch time is on—especially when you have a large volume of invoices—AP Upload saves us a few hours.
Q: What set up and training was involved?
Besty: It was very simple. The only learning curve is really the new template as far as what fields to fill in, but DeAnna provided step-by-step instructions. It's pretty intuitive and you can learn it in a day.
Q: Is there anything else you've used to help you streamline and automate your processes?
Betsy: Journal Entry Upload is fantastic. You can do multiple journal entries all from one spreadsheet, and post up to five different days on one journal entry. You can see the dollar amount and make sure everything adds up to zero, which reduces manual errors. This way you don’t have to worry about whether you’ve keyed into the correct GL number. Journal Entry Upload is especially useful to me because I do a lot of repetitive month-end journal entries. I have a template that’s saved, and I just go right into Enterprise and hit import. It validates the data and then it’s sitting there in the journal entry posting field so I can double-check that it is exactly what I want to post. I’m able to do within a minute what would otherwise be a long and error-prone process. We’re also using Reporter which is great because you can create your own ad-hoc reports. I like that I can export easily and manipulate reports within Excel. We have reports like inventory and open contracts that are scheduled every day. We can also verify rates for those contracts before they’re set up to cycle bill. Since the reports are automated and go directly to our email, nobody has to think about running them.
"Are there things you’ve been meaning to do but haven’t, because you lack the time or don’t know enough about the system? Just by observing your processes, I can make recommendations that will save you time and give you better results. Even simple changes can make a world of difference to you and your staff." -DeAnna Freeman
