With an improvement in accountability, efficiency, auditing processes, and internal communication, organizations with an integrated solution are better prepared for the demands of today's private school sector. 1. Expanding Fundraising and Grant Capabilities Now more than ever, major donors, grantors, and private funders come with a variety of donor imposed restrictions and reporting requirements. These limitations consume valuable resources and create an overwhelming workload for your accounting department. Connecting your development and finance systems simplifies reporting for even the most complex income and expense allocation, even across multiple programs, projects, and fiscal years. This enables your staff to pursue additional funding opportunities without constraining your accounting department. 2. Increasing Accountability and Transparency Fusion between accounting and development offices streamlines operations, improves constituent services, and reduces departmental overhead costs. With both departments gaining access to important information, your organization can better demonstrate accountability to investors. 3. Efficiency and Data Integrity An integrated system allows you to post directly to your accounting software, eliminating the need for imports and reducing duplicate data entry. 4. Maintaining Tight Audit Trails Linking gifts in development to account balances in accounting makes reconciliation simple and straightforward. An integrated solution allows you see source transactions by drilling down from a project in your accounting system directly to the constituent's gift record in your fundraising system. "With its integration into fundraising and executive decision support systems, The Financial Edge is a first-rate accounting solution that was created for, and has served well, the nonprofit sector." —Accounting Today
