Vitamin Angels is a global public health nutrition organisation that promotes health and economic equity across the lifespan by ensuring nutritionally vulnerable, underserved young children and pregnant women have access to evidence-based nutrition interventions. With a presence in over 70 countries, the non-profit organisation’s mission is to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty by intervening early in life.
In the last previous five years, Vitamin Angels were relying on Intuit QuickBooks and many other manual, paper-based processes to manage their finances. For example, its finance team used Excel spreadsheets to track different international entities and product inventory across 13 warehouses. These challenges however, led the organisation to avoid restricted grant opportunities because the administrative burden was too great. The team thus recognised that a new, more advanced system was needed and long overdue, and went looking for a solution that could easily connect to their donor management in Salesforce. They therefore evaluated and ultimately chose Sage Intacct for its ability to seamlessly integrate with Salesforce, along with its better user interface and flexible reporting capabilities.
The team not only improved accounts payables efficiency by 60% and eliminated accounts receivables and revenue data entry, but also helped increase restricted revenue by $14 million dollars over the last three or so years.
