Over their 90 year history Brentwood has constantly looked to improve the level of education and the learning environment for their students. They recently came to the realisation that in order to support their core mandate they needed to address the issues with their existing accounting and reporting solution. In order to continue to be a leader in their field, they needed a new system to provide the school’s Management with the tools needed to make informed and timely decisions.
They underwent an extensive search to find a new accounting system to meet their needs, reviewing existing solutions in the EDU space including ACCPAC, Blackbaud’s Financial Edge and Microsoft Dynamics GP. During this process Brentwood became aware of Altus Dynamics and ultimately selected them based on their status as a leading EDU Microsoft Partner.
“We had in our heads that we wanted a solution based on a Microsoft platform”, commented Derek Muzyka, CFO & Business Manager, Brentwood College School. “Through our evaluation process, it became abundantly clear to us that Altus ‘out-shone’ the other Dynamics partners with their understanding of our overall vision, as well as the right mix of solutions that addresses the ‘bigger picture’ needs of our school. Also their experience in the education sector led us to select them over other local vendors.”
Altus Dynamics has a strong focus on the education sector; from independent schools, and small universities to large district school boards. This knowledge and experience coupled with their tailored solutions and the backing that comes with being a Gold Certified Microsoft Partner meant the team at Brentwood could rest assured that their new accounting solution would mirror the high standards they set in providing education in British Columbia.
“After a speedy implementation of just 3 months, Brentwood has already benefited from NAV; from improved efficiencies in customer and vendor invoicing - reducing the time it takes from days to seconds. Also, as the solution is based on the familiar Microsoft environment, the team at Brentwood have been quick to adapt to and to adopt their new accounting system.” said Colin Dickinson, Managing Partner at Altus Dynamics.
