New solution enhances visibility into specific departments, campaigns and projects, provider says
FRESNO, CALIF. (March 29, 2016) – Aplos Software, a provider of Software as a Service accounting for nonprofits and churches, today announced Aplos Advanced Accounting, a comprehensive fund-based financial system for organizations with “sophisticated accounting needs,” according to a news release issued by the provider.
“Advanced Accounting builds on the company’s standard financial system which is used today by 14,000+ organizations worldwide,” it states. “Among other enhancements, Advanced Accounting offers more extensive reporting and analytics capabilities, making it ideal for organizations that want greater visibility into the health and performance of specific departments, campaigns and projects.”
CEO Tim Goetz adds: “As nonprofits and churches grow, their financial management requirements become more complex. The obligation to track income and expenses at a granular level, and to share data with key stakeholders, increases. We built Advanced Accounting so they can slice-and-dice data easily, and understand in real-time exactly how their organization is performing, down to the smallest details.”
Advanced Accounting includes features for nonprofits to manage budgets for each of their designated funds, enabling tight controls for managers, Goetz says. Organizations can also build custom reports by department, campaign, project or custom segment. This can help nonprofits track the finances of each program, monitor the health of multiple sites, or share department financials with managers. “Aplos also makes it simple for organizations that have multiple entities to manage multiple books and create roll-up reports,” he points out.
“The people who are responsible for ensuring the health and performance of nonprofit organizations know what they need from a data perspective in order to grow and succeed and demonstrate stewardship to their board and supporters,” says Goetz. “We are thrilled to put that intelligence at their fingertips with Aplos Advanced Accounting.”
Not just for nonprofits, Aplos Advanced Accounting is also ideal for churches, the company asserts. “The flexible reporting segmentation equips multi-site churches to pull reports for each campus and departments or ministries across campuses. Churches could also easily manage the books of separate ministries or an on-site preschool,” the release states.
“Aplos continues to offer Aplos Standard Accounting for nonprofits that have simpler needs and desire more streamlined reporting,” it continues. “All versions of Aplos Accounting use true fund accounting that follow FASB and GAAP standards that meet compliance expectations of auditors, according to the provider.
