Centuries-Old School Looks to Modernize Financials
Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School (“Georgetown Visitation”) is a 200+ year-old private Catholic high school in Washington D.C. In recent years, its accounting team recognized that they could better serve families by modernizing operations through a new financial solution. Previously, the team had struggled to keep up with billing and other processes because of their rigid on-premise Blackbaud Financial Edge system, which was never in sync with the organization’s other applications.
Georgetown Visitation turned to its consulting partner Brittenford Systems, who recommended a switch to the Sage Intacct's best-in-class cloud ERP software.
