Mangum’s Inc. provides transport services including towing, heavy transport including a truck shop, as well as a tire/road service. With so many different divisions and services, they were utilizing two different QuickBooks software types to manage all of their various financial activities.
Hours of manual labor were required to consolidate the financial information from Mangum’s Inc’s multiple data sources. The information from QuickBooks was exported into excel spreadsheets and then reconciled which required manual inputs. Afterward, the department would go through hours of editing to ensure accuracy and prepare the information to be used throughout the company. This process also meant that generating reports became a lengthy endeavor that was only done when required.
When Larry, Mangum’s Inc’s CFO found DataRails, it was no doubt the answer to his reporting dilemma. Mangum’s exported all relevant information into excel spreadsheets which were easily uploaded and now are instantly updated onto the DataRails platform.
