When it comes to the administration of faith based organizations, these functions are continually asked to “do more with less.” And, very often, the accounting function is the very last to get optimal staffing and budget.
How many of the following challenges apply to your faith-based organization?
- Limited budget
- Overwhelming amount of paper documents to store, track and reference
- Limited and delayed reporting
- Multiple entity and multiple location requirements
- Over-reliance on manual processes and data entry
- Limited IT skills to maintain financial systems and software updates
- Lack of internal controls and approvals
If your organization has more than three of these challenges, we don’t have to tell you how painful and problematic that is.
Technology is finally delivering for faith based organizations. Cloud technology delivery of applications like Sage Intacct can eliminate all of the challenges listed.
