Huddle Utilities are a utilities broker that allow professional or students house shares to pay their household utility bills. This includes setting up household bills like Gas, Electricity, TV, Water, and the Internet. Huddle combines all bills into one easy monthly payment for each house member, allowing each member to pay an equal share directly to Huddle.
Having outgrown their Sage 50 finance system, Huddle Utilities approached ION to help them transition to a cloud accounting solution that would future proof their business.
The key objective for Huddle Utilities was adopting a best-in-class cloud accounting solution that would handle 1 million sales invoice and payment transactions to enable them to achieve their ambitious growth plans.
Huddle Utilities had key challenges in the duration and manual effort required to upload and download sales invoice and payment transactions into and from Sage 50, at volumes which were much lower than their ambition of 1 million transactions.
Through Sage Intacct, Huddle Utilities has reduced their uploading time of sales invoice and payment transactions by 40% with all financial operations centralised, the board can get a clear view of the real-time business position at all times.
Although Sage Intacct can cater for an unlimited number of transactions, ION also built a POC to demonstrate the ability of Sage Intacct to handle 1 million transactions, which provided Huddle Utilities with the confidence that it can cater for their growth ambitions.
