What is the Best Nonprofit Accounting Software?


Email | Print

While there are many financial management software solutions available, thousands of nonprofit organizations continue to embrace Microsoft Dynamics GP as the solution of choice.  For more than 10 years, the Ariett team has worked closely with this sector on Purchase to Payment automation. In fact, while examining our own customer base, we found that approximately 39% of our GP customers are nonprofit organizations – read more on the Ariett blog - and account for about 42,000 users on our application today!  Here are the reasons why customers continue to gravitate to GP as the best nonprofit accounting software for their organization:

1. Microsoft Dynamics GP partner channel remains one of the strongest and most knowledgeable service providers.  Dynamics GP consultants not only know the Dynamics GP application, but they also understand the business requirements of nonprofits, including managing entities, programs and grants; segregating funds; and tracking budgets and encumbrances at a detail level.  When organizations must pass a successful audit to secure funding from foundations and the government, Dynamics GP partners understand the importance of helping organizations prepare for financial auditors.

2.  The Dynamics GP ISV (Independent Software Vendor) community extends the Dynamics GP application by providing affordable, functional solutions at a price point that mid-market nonprofits demand.  Some of these Dynamics GP ISVs have established expertise in software implementations and business process best practices for the nonprofit community.  For example, as a complete Purchase to Payment solution, Ariett helps organizations control, anticipate and have visibility to costs throughout the purchasing lifecycle. Ariett calculates budget availability when employees enter and approve requisitions, contracts, invoices and expense reports.

3.  Ariett further supports nonprofit programs, funds, grants and projects with a Contract Tracking solution that is part of any easy to use Purchase to Payment platform.  The solution includes grant/project approval, budget checking and spend tracking for managing your programs and remaining accountable to donors.  With a unified Contract, Requisition, Invoice Automation and Payment Processing platform, employees use the same interface whether approving a contract, invoice or payment batch.  As consumers of many goods from different vendors, nonprofit customers also frequently use Ariett’s direct connection to Amazon for online, business buying.
