If your district is preparing to undergo an accounting system transition, you may feel that now is not a good time to implement Allovue. You couldn't be more wrong!
Allovue can help districts streamline and minimize technical issues typically associated with new accounting system implementations. Additionally, with Allovue in place, there is reduced interruption to the user’s experience. Read on to learn five ways Allovue improves a district’s transition to a new accounting system.
1. Allovue maintains consistency during an accounting system transition.
Once users are familiar with pulling financial information from Allovue, there’s no need to disrupt their day-to-day process. Allovue keeps the same look and feel during and even after the conversion. Allovue helps your district swap out the underlying system; the user doesn’t notice a difference.
2. Data conversion is less burdensome using Allovue.
Some of our districts store their historical data in Allovue so they only need to immediately import recent data into the new accounting system. Since Allovue sits on top of both the old and new systems, there’s less urgency to import data we’re securely housing. Import what you need right away, and we’ll hold on to the rest until you’re ready to import more.
3. There is no re-integration fee.
Unlike other SaaS vendors, we will not charge you to swap out the underlying system. We’ll work with your IT department to ensure that your district’s data is accurately re-integrated into Allovue from your new accounting system.
4. No new reports.
Often during ERP implementations, considerable resources are spent developing new reports and at-a-glance dashboards for users. As long as the chart of accounts stays the same, Allovue maintains your most frequent views, reports, and bookmarks after the conversion.
5. New ERP = same district budget.
If you’ve got Allovue in your arsenal, there’s no need to purchase an additional budgeting module with your new accounting system. Allovue allows you to tailor your accounting system so you can keep what’s already working.
