Arxis Technology Streamlines Accounting for Legendary Entertainment

We’ve always known that Arxis Technology is looking out for us. They’ve scaled with us as we’ve scaled— continuing to offer the same sound, informed advice and solutions that enable us to focus more on our business , and less on our accounting software.

Arxis Technology, Inc., a technology consulting firm specializing in the implementation and support of Intacct Cloud Financials, announced that Legendary Entertainment streamlined accounting and finance for its growing, entertainment business units using Intacct ERP implemented by Arxis Technology. Legendary Entertainment is the producer of Academy Award®-winning feature films, television, and graphic novels.

Arxis, an Intacct Premier Partner and Intacct Momentum Award Winner, details the results and benefits achieved by Legendary with their help in a new case study published this week. Highlights include:

Legendary Entertainment’s results with Arxis + Intacct:

  •     With Arxis’ industry and product expertise, Legendary reduced its chart of accounts from over 1,600 accounts to just 470 by using Intacct’s dimension values, even though Legendary has acquired four companies since its Intacct implementation.
  •     Automated bank account data feed into Intacct making bank reconciliation 70% faster and now allows Legendary staff to spend that time on more strategic tasks.
  •     Legendary relies on a number of cloud-based applications including Concur, AvidXchange, and Salesforce. Intacct seamlessly integrates with Legendary’s choice of applications now and will support future additions with just a few clicks because of Intacct’s cloud-from-the-ground-up architecture.

Dino Gioia, Senior Vice President of Finance at Legendary Entertainment, called on long-time, strategic technology partner Arxis Technology when existing accounting systems began showing signs of constraints and inabilities to keep up with their growing operational complexity. Legendary chose Arxis and Intacct for a number of reasons. “We’ve always known that Arxis Technology is looking out for us. They’ve scaled with us as we’ve scaled— continuing to offer the same sound, informed advice and solutions that enable us to focus more on our business , and less on our accounting software,” said Gioia.

“I have been a customer of Arxis for about 15 years now. They’re always there. I’ve always found their advice to be amazingly accurate, very competent, and very professional. I never feel like I’m being sold something. I actually feel like they’re very interested in my business.”

“We saw Intacct as the best, long-term solution for Legendary Entertainment. They continue to grow, adding new business units, and now have an international presence. Those factors can complicate accounting tasks, but Intacct is designed for dynamic, growing companies like Legendary Entertainment,” said Scott Burdsall, Director of Intacct Consulting Services for Arxis Technology.

The significant growth and success facilitated by Arxis + Intacct have not gone unnoticed. Intacct recognized Legendary with a Customer Success Award for “dramatically improving business and financial operations using Intacct.”

“We have seen lots of Entertainment companies outgrowing QuickBooks and Excel as they add multi-currency and multi-location complexities. It’s important for Entertainment companies and content producers to have real-time visibility by title, location, vendor, and business unit easily, which they can’t do with QuickBooks or even legacy accounting applications. Intacct is an ideal fit for expanding Entertainment companies that need a solution to scale rapidly as they grow in size and complexity,” said David Cieslak, CPA/CITP and Arxis Principal.
