Shari's Management Corporation will use Board for financial management practices and monthly reporting

Board International, the #1 decision making platform for organizations of any size, is pleased to announce that Shari’s Management Corporation, a family restaurant chain operating over 140 restaurants in the western United States, chose Board to improve and streamline their budgeting and planning environment. 

“We look forward to a long partnership with Board to help us streamline and optimize what has been a long, antiquated forecasting, planning and reporting process. We are excited to get started next month with the Board team to begin leveraging this fantastic suite of products across multiple areas of the organization.” – Andre Lapierre, Director, Financial Planning & Analysis, Shari’s Management Corporation.

Shari’s Management Corporation chose Board after a detailed search for a solution that could replace Excel-based financial management practices and establish a better system for monthly financial reporting. They evaluated competitors, including Adaptive and IBM, and ultimately selected Board not only for its look and feel, but also its expansive suite of available and beneficial products.

“We are thrilled that such a distinct and committed family restaurant chain has selected Board for its planning and financial needs,” Aaron Rozansky, VP, Board Americas. “Board is excited to work closely with Shari’s Management Corporation and support their plans and decision-making.”
