As the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts transformed from a start-up to managing a new facility, it sought the technology to operate efficiently and practice sound financial management. The organization decided on a cloud-based implementation of Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Exchange Server, and Microsoft SharePoint Server. By moving to the cloud, the Kauffman Center saves more than US$600,000 in its three opening years and continues to bring memorable performing-arts experiences to the community, outsourcing ancillary functions. With Microsoft Dynamics GP, the organization streamlines the tasks of financial management, provides full financial transparency, and complies easily with complex reporting requirements. The Kauffman Center has also taken advantage of the cloud-based technology to help it pursue its sustainability initiative and prepare for future challenges.
