Quickbooks reporting

Quickbooks reporting

Didn't find your answer?

I work for a healthcare NGO dealing with malaria and cholera in Zamiba, with a small head office in the US.  We have separate Quickbook (QB) databases for the Zambian entity and for the US entity - each of which are stored on separate servers.  Both use QBs desktop premier edition 2016.

We incur costs in both entities relating to the projects we work on, and our reporting requires us to consolidate information from both of our QBs databases.  At present, we export the relevant reports into excel for each of the entities and then manually aggregate these.  

There are 2 main types of reports - periodic reports sent to our donors showing how we have spent their funds, and internal reports for our project managers to allow them to track spend vs budget / forecast.

As we grow and take on more projects, this manual effort is becoming more cumbersome / time consuming.  The manual intervention also increases the chance of human error.  

The version of QBs we use does not consolidate information.  I am hoping some of the AccountingWeb community can help steer my search for third party software to save some time.

We are a small NGO with very limited resources.  Can anyone recommend a simple, economical solution?  Thank you in advance for your help.

This is the UK website. Is that where you thought you should ask?

Hi Marion,

I've asked locally in Zambia, but the level of QBs knowledge / experience is a little more limited, and I have not come across anyone able to assist. Lots of people use QBs - but none have a reporting / aggregation solution.

I've used accountingweb for a number of years, going back to when I worked in the UK, and there are always lots of knowledgeable people on the boards. Since the question is not location specific, and could equally apply to a UK scenario, I hoped someone on here would be able to point me in the right direction.

Thanks, P

I hope someone will be able to help you
