Outcome-Measures-for-Nonprofits

Nonprofits today are operating under growing pressure to be accountable and transparent. In order to secure funding, an organization must demonstrate a high degree of efficiency and sustainability in achieving their mission.

Most nonprofits are happy to oblige, of course, but there are two key issues: first, how can you ensure that your nonprofit’s performance is meeting high enough standards? Second, what parameters best show the state of your organization, and how can those be displayed in a friendly, understandable format?

New Distribution Whitepaper: How ERP Enables Growth

Kim Anselmo - Tuesday, January 17, 2017

New Distribution Whitepaper: How ERP Enables GrowthSo many distributors today are mired in manual inefficiency when it comes to order entry, purchasing, managing inventory, fulfillment, shipping, and invoicing.

Common culprits include antiquated legacy enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems and limited, shrink-wrapped software like QuickBooks.

As a result, managing core operations and financials is slow, error-prone and leads to dissatisfied customers – all of which constrains growth.

Is it possible for accounting and ERP software to actually enable and accelerate growth? Yes...

Whitepaper Highlights

Our new distribution ERP whitepaper explains how in the following ways:

Management Reporter vs. BI360: 3 Key Factors to Help You Decide Which is Best for Your Business

Romy Andrews - Tuesday, January 03, 2017

by Saeward Schillaci, The Resource Group

BI360If you have Microsoft Dynamics GP, then Management Reporter is automatically bundled with the license. This is Microsoft's offering as a primary financial report writer for Dynamics GP. However, Microsoft recently announced there will be no major enhancements of Management Reporter for Dynamics GP.

In addition, for many businesses this included functionality falls short of their business intelligence (BI) needs. Can your company get the best out of Management Reporter, or would it be worthwhile to invest in a third-party offering such as BI360 from Solver?

There is a plethora of blogs, videos, and other detailed information about each solution. However, for many organizations the decision boils down to a few key factors. Let's summarize these three major aspects of financial reporting software as inputs, interface, and outputs.

The New Financial Reporting Roadmap for Nonprofits in the New Year

Romy Andrews - Friday, December 30, 2016

MR by Saeward Schillaci, The Resource Group 


If you work for a nonprofit, you probably experience certain financial headaches that are unique to your type of organization. By their very nature, nonprofits are required to have clear goals and transparent finances. A nonprofit needs accurate, understandable financial reporting to show to its boards, committees, and donors as well as to make decisions that will help accomplish the mission of the organization without wasting resources. Of course, this is easier said than done. Many organizations find themselves spending far too many hours manually manipulating financial data in outdated spreadsheets in order to have reports that show the right information. This, in turn, can mean that getting the most up-to-date information possible can be a major headache for overworked accounting teams. Good software, and hard work are all crucial to nonprofit financial success. Chances are, you already have the ‘hard work’ part covered; however, it’s time to find the right financial software solution for your organization so you can achieve maximum success with minimum resources. 

Intacct is an especially popular cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that is valued by nonprofits for its flexibility, user-friendly interface, and cost effectiveness. Attend a complimentary webinar on January 11th, 2017 called “The New Roadmap for Nonprofit Finance.” During this webinar, industry experts will reveal the results of a recent survey about common financial problems and goals shared by many nonprofits, and will share advice about how to help your organization achieve financial brilliance in the year ahead. In addition, learn about using beneficial tools, automating key processes, and gaining the perks of increased collaboration and communication. 

The webinar will start at 11 PT on Wednesday, January 11. Save your seat by registering today!

Did You Confabulate Today?

Romy Andrews - Wednesday, April 27, 2016

holly greenby Holly Green, CEO of The Human Factor

They say that we live in the Information Age. That may be true, but many days it just feels like the Distracted Age.

From the time we get up in the morning until we lay our heads on the pillow at night, we’re bombarded with information from countless sources. Advertising, email, voice mail, texting, Twitter, Facebook, TV, radio, iPods, smart phones – the list goes on and on.

And yet, the problem isn’t so much the amount of information; it’s that it all seems urgent. This sense of urgency makes it hard to tell what we really need to attend to now, what can be delayed, and what can be ignored altogether. These constant interruptions make it increasingly difficult to focus on the task at hand.

Which, in turn, makes it harder to keep our thoughts positive and stay focused on winning.

That's why I keep a sign in my office that says, "Of what you do today, what will have an impact a year from now?"
