April 5, 2011, Minneapolis, MN — Boyer & Associates, (Boyer) a leading provider of business management solutions for mid-sized businesses, announces the completion of an ERP financial management project for Volunteers of America Minnesota, a nonprofit organization founded in 1896 offering services to persons with disabilities and special needs. Boyer & Associates upgraded Microsoft Dynamics GP for financial management to help consolidate financial information across the organization as well as streamline payroll processing. Volunteers of America Minnesota has been a Boyer & Associates Dynamics GP client for the past decade but upgraded their software and added payroll and HR capabilities this past year. The new solution from Boyer offers real-time access to accurate financial information, greater operational efficiencies, and deeper insight into the organization’s financial reporting. Since deployment, the organization has dramatically reduced operating costs, while maintaining most of the functionality they were overpaying for from a payroll services bureau.

The organization needed a sophisticated financial tracking system that accommodated the highly varied needs of their programs and affiliated organizations as well as the ability to consolidate many of the routine financial activities such as payroll to save costs. “With the new ERP solution in place, we are thrilled by our ability to process payroll in-house saving a significant amount per year as well as having access to critical financial information to run our organization more efficiently,” said John Nesbitt, IT Director, Volunteers of America-Minnesota.

Edwina Bruce, a 17 year payroll industry professional and Subject Matter Expert in Payroll Systems Implementation stated; “We received optimal payroll support at critical times. We are thoroughly impressed with Boyer’s in depth knowledge and experience. From the initial configuration to end-user
support, they understood the scope and delivered an end to end solution that met our expectations.” Bruce serves in the role as AP/Payroll Manager for Volunteers of America -Minnesota.
