- Scalable automation capabilities that will continue to support Five Guys as they grow and expand
“We chose Goby’s cloud-based technology suite for its sophisticated utility bill management process, which will replace the time-consuming, manual tasks our accounts payable team members previously dealt with,” says Larry Hart, V.P. Finance and Accounting at Five Guys. “This will empower our team with trustworthy data and allow them to focus more on value-add projects; their user-friendly interface will increase productivity and visibility into our utility bill management processes, dramatically transforming our utility bill process and reporting capabilities.”
