Wingstop Franchisees Moves From QuickBooks to Microsoft Dynamics 365 BC in Four WeeksLangan Holdings, LLC was growing, and they needed their ERP system to grow with them. Although typically cautious about new technology, they felt that proactively moving from QuickBooks to a Microsoft Dynamics solution would benefit their expanding franchise business in the long term.

This is their story.

Growth Requires Change

Langan Holdings, LLC is the owner of 18 Wingstop franchise locations in Texas and Tennessee. From their small start with one restaurant just five years ago, they now report a combined annual revenue of $20 million. Such rapid growth brought administrative challenges at the corporate level.

The company used a proprietary point-of-sale solution to manage its restaurant operations, but it didn’t integrate with their other business systems. Getting the data into their QuickBooks financial system required multiple spreadsheets and manual data entry. This process wasted time and increased the risk of user error.

They knew they were not being efficient. With in-house accounting and payroll, and the need for a better onboarding platform, they decided to investigate Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

They understood from their research that more and more companies would be using Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central in the future, even their fellow franchise owners.

Choosing the Right Dynamics 365 BC Partner

The original quote Langan Holdings received from a Microsoft Dynamics partner for a Dynamics 365 BC implementation was beyond their budget. After consulting social media groups focused on Business Central implementations, informative posts by Mount Evans Consulting caught their interest.

They reached out to Mount Evans Consulting and were impressed that it is a women-owned small business based in the US. The pricing was fair and transparent, and they were willing to set a realistic budget while still planning for the unexpected. And they were impressed with the promise of rapid implementation.

Rapid Implementation Approach

In just four weeks, the company was able to move all their financial data from QuickBooks and go live on Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. Mount Evans Consulting’s accounting background was essential in working with the company and its many vendors to make the implementation fast and successful.

POS Integration

Mount Evans Consulting created a custom integration to bring data from the Wingstop POS system into Business Central. Instead of multiple journal entries for individual locations, an automated process now sorts the transactions by location and posts them to their respective companies in Business Central. Consolidating everything in Dynamics Business Central saves time and money. They don’t need to hire additional personnel to manage their financial processes.

Smooth Intercompany Management

With the multi-company capabilities of Business Central, Mount Evans Consulting set up each franchise location as a separate company, helping bring order to the chaos. Also, there is greater visibility into essential business metrics from each Wingstop store. They have streamlined their business management workflow for efficiency and increased profits.

Looking to the Future

Langan Holdings is thrilled with their move from QuickBooks to Microsoft Dynamics 365 BC, and they look forward to a continued relationship with Mount Evans Consulting.
