McGrath Development, a San Diego developer that manages one million square feet of commercial and industrial real estate, initially used spreadsheets to handle its accounting and property management needs. Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate (formerly Sage Timberline Office) offered McGrath a unified accounting and property management solution flexible enough to handle their detail-oriented, hands-on method of doing business.
The spreadsheet approach proved inadequate to handle the company’s accounting and property management needs.
"This is software that does exactly what we want it to do. Most of the enhancements are geared toward providing more information or making the process faster and easier," said Mendis.The integration of Sage 300 accounting and property management software provided the desired flexibility to handle the company’s highly detailed requirements. The streamlined system unifies financial processes and shortens the month-end close process by about a week.
