The Company

The Cambridge Group of Clubs has been a social and athletic force in Toronto’s financial district for over 40 years, serving an exclusive membership of leaders, executives, and professionals. The company’s success relies on its deeply rooted culture of service excellence to clients.


The company’s finance team knew their existing on-premise system was limited and would soon need to change. “Everything took longer,” said Karen Malone, CFO of Cambridge Group. “We had no flexibility with journal entries and had to export financial reports to Excel to analyze financials.” These challenges underscored the necessity for a more efficient and effective financial management solution. When the accounting system crashed unexpectedly and caused a significant data loss, the company needed a solution quickly and was determined to choose a system that would better support its long-term needs.

Selecting a Cloud ERP Solution

Understanding the urgency of upgrading their financial management system, Cambridge Group of Clubs prioritized cloud-based ERP solutions with robust reporting, integration options, and user-friendly interface. Cambridge Group was also in the process of evaluating new AP Automation Solutions and needed to select an ERP vendor that could integrate seamlessly. The Cambridge Group of Clubs turned to their partner and Canadian Cloud ERP experts, Quisitive, to help evaluate solutions.


With Quisitive’s guidance, they evaluated various options and ultimately chose Sage Intacct for its impressive reporting capabilities, intuitive interface, and seamless integration potential.

Getting Started

Quisitive’s support during the implementation process was invaluable to Cambridge Group. Despite the situation’s urgency, Quisitive adapted its project plan to meet Cambridge Group’s immediate needs.

"In conjunction with our ongoing project, we’re integrating a new AP Automation system. Quisitive not only supplied us with vendors and contacts but actively engaged in meetings with them. This level of partnership exemplifies the trust and value we place in their expertise.”
