COA Solutions Voted Best Accounting Software Provider in Charity Finance Software Survey

10 FEBRUARY 2010 – COA Solutions has been voted the best accounting software provider in Charity Finance magazine’s Accounting Software Survey 2010. 100% of survey respondents using COA Solutions software also stated that they would recommend their supplier to other charities.

Charity Finance polled the opinions of accounting software users across 254 different UK charities. Users were asked a range of questions including which accounting software supplier and packages they use, how their accounting software package was chosen, how they rate their supplier and would they recommend their software provider to other charities.

COA Solutions was rated the top accounting software supplier, achieving 2.44 points with the closest rivals achieving 2.22 and 2.00 points respectively. Each supplier’s score takes into account technical support, knowledge of the charity sector and commitment to the charity sector. The survey also identified that 100% of COA Solutions users would recommend their software provider to other charities. Only one other software supplier received this same level of user recommendation.

Mark Thompson, Managing Director of COA Solutions, says, “The results of this user survey highlight the value we place on customer satisfaction as well as our in-depth knowledge and understanding of the UK charities sector.”

Thompson continues, “With a range of software solutions that have been designed with not-for-profit organisations in mind, we are fulfilling our charity customers’ specific organisational and regulatory needs. By continuing to provide solutions to meet their ever-evolving requirements, we look forward to further strengthening these all important customer relationships.”

COA Solutions’ charity customers include RSPB, Action for Children, Leonard Cheshire Disability, Brendoncare, PDSA and DebRA.
