Prior to using Spreadsheet Server, NHA’s reporting system relied heavily on the IT department to build all reports and queries through Lawson Business Intelligence. The accounting team decided they wanted to enable their users to be more independent and relieve the IT burden. NHA knew they needed a solution to improve how time consuming the process was to generate a report, to increase the efficiency of their reporting system, and a way to remove the step of continuously going back into Lawson to drill around for necessary data.
National Heritage Academies is able to use Spreadsheet Server for use with Lawson for creating all of their monthly reports and for automating sending them to each school directly. Getting ACH payments to vendors has become a hassle-free task and NHA is now able to connect tables themselves in order to get more in-depth information. They can now access data from the General Ledger all the way to AP invoice description, which was not even an option previously.
