Cloud computing is taking the world by storm and many nonprofits are already taking advantage of this powerful technology. Approximately 90% of worldwide nonprofits are using cloud-computing services. Cloud-based solutions can save money, streamline productivity, and support efforts toward achieving your mission. Lighten your load and get a better view into your nonprofit activities by replacing inadequate business software with cloud technology.
Today’s cloud-based accounting solutions offer greater control, insight, and flexibility which you need in order to strike the right balance between managing the office, spreading and supporting the purpose of your mission and spending time with your membership. Download “7 Great Reasons that Nonprofits are Moving to the Cloud“, an infographic, to see why nonprofits are choosing cloud-based accounting services. Here are the top three ways the cloud can lighten your workload:
- Superior stewardship: Nonprofits rely on the generosity of donors, the collection of membership dues, and the awarding of grants. These funding sources also come with rules and regulations and require fiscal transparency to assure sourcing agencies that their money is being spent properly. Intacct, a robust accounting solution, is the only Preferred Provider of Financial Applications for AICPA (American Institute of Certified Public Accountants) business solutions. Demonstrate transparency and fiscal responsibility by deploying Intacct in the cloud.
- Strengthen connections: Many nonprofit organizations have small offices with board members and volunteers working from other locations, even their homes. In addition, employees or volunteers may spend time meeting with members or with the community you serve. The cloud can deliver real-time information between you and your people, as well as to your members, without the need to be within the office walls. Remote access to information can improve productivity and strengthen connections with your team and its members.
- Streamline grant management: The more grant funding sources you have, the more difficult it can be to manage expenses. A stronger management solution, such as Intacct, can provide an easier and more accurate way to manage qualified and non-qualified expenses, monitor grant budgets, and ensure that you are on the right track toward achieving grant-related goals.
