Trustees Benefit From Real-time Financial Overview

onesys | | Permalink

Many charities / not-for-profit organisations we speak to struggle on with manual or spreadsheet-based financial systems.

Boards and funding bodies can be reassured and transparency improved through a simple upgrade to accounting software such as Sage 50. (or run independently)

The networked Sage Coretime module gives management a real-time overview of funding-spend, productivity, resourcing and other key performance indicators. Detailed Reports can be produced without delay at the push of a button.

This upgrade eradicates many manual errors, delays, greatly reduces the admin burden and your internal information flow doesn't stop when a key person is off work, as management has full access to all the data - if authorised.

For further information about replacing your manual system with Sage Coretime call Gil van der Sluis on 0845 026 2255 (local call)
