MADD Partners with JMT Consulting To Modernize Its Financial Management Solution
Selects Intacct to Meet Nonprofit Accounting Needs
Patterson, NY; July 5, 2017-JMT Consulting, a leader in providing financial management solutions exclusively to nonprofits, announced today that Mothers Against Drunk Driving® (MADD), the nation’s largest nonprofit working to protect families from drunk driving, drugged driving and underage drinking and provide free victim services, has selected JMT as their consultant partner to help modernize the organization’s financial system.
MADD’s previous financial management solution was not built for nonprofit accounting, which relies on funds from contributions, program revenues, fundraising events, public and private grants, and investment income. Because of this, the finance department was performing manual workarounds to compensate. The team also faced challenges with the reporting functionality of their previous solution since the project module was separate from the general ledger, causing siloed data for reports. In addition, MADD had already implemented Adaptive Planning and was looking for a nonprofit financial management system that would interface seamlessly.
After hearing JMT speak at a nonprofit function, MADD inquired about a strategic cloud-based solution that would not only meet their reporting and financial management needs, but also improve team efficiencies and effectiveness. As part of an extensive RFP process, JMT recommended Intacct as the right solution for MADD. Intacct helps to provide greater managerial visibility, blends seamlessly with Adaptive Planning, allowing budget and forecasting data to reconcile and balance with its billing, accounting and reporting data, all within budget constraints. As a result, MADD selected Intacct as it nonprofit accounting software.
“We are pleased that we chose to partner with JMT Consulting. The company understands the unique needs and frustrations of nonprofit accounting,” said Lista Hightower, CFO, MADD, who leads the national financial operations, information technology and financial and tax reporting. “They recommended a solution that addressed our expectations, and our entire team is very excited to begin implementation.”
“The important work MADD does is an example of the reason JMT Consulting is in business.” said Tom Thornton, COO, JMT Consulting. “We consider it a privilege to work with MADD as they modernize their financial management systems. We are certain that Intacct will provide their organization with the transparency and real-time data needed to achieve their mission.”
