Project Spotlight:
Hawks Nest Condominium Association Slashes Payment Processing Times with Fortis and Sage 300

By: | Category: ERP, Payment Solutions

Hawks Nest Condominiums, a 61-unit condominium complex occupies a prime stretch of real estate on the Lake of the Ozarks. Each unit is part of the Hawks Nest Condominium Association, which collects dues from homeowners and manages the upkeep of the complex’s buildings and grounds.

The condominium association’s accounting is handled entirely by busy volunteers who graciously give of their time. To keep finances efficient and convenient both for the volunteers and the homeowners, Hawks Nest engaged Net at Work to implement Sage 300 and Fortis, and integrated payments processing solution.

Since its incorporation, the association had relied on manual workflows to bill homeowners and collect dues. Each month, the association’s treasurer had to print and mail invoices to every homeowner, a process that took hours. Then, as checks trickled in, the treasurer would manually perform a cash receipt entry in the accounting software, endorse the checks, make copies, and drive them across town to the bank.

When Young took over as President, he engaged with Net at Work to implement Sage 300, a powerful yet easy to use financial management application that he knew could help the association modernize its accounting. In addition to recommending Sage 300, Net at Work consultants also introduced Hawks Nest to Fortis, a payment processing solution.

“Sage and Fortis is a great solution for any organization that collects funds — big or small. We think of it as a way to future-proof our condo association, moving it along the path of digital transformation .”

Net at Work engineers developed the integration between Sage 300 and Fortis, creating a cohesive, streamlined solution. Electronic payments eliminate many of the errors and glitches that slow the invoice to cash cycle. “Sage 300 and Fortis is a great solution for any organization that collects funds — big or small,” Young says.
