QuickBooks is an accounting software program which has been adapted for various types of companies, including non-profit. Here are 5 reasons your non-profit organization should use QuickBooks:
Quickbooks is Well-Established & Proven
QuickBooks has been around for many years, with supported updates and online service. Because it’s so prevalent, there are many sites and videos online to help novices figure out how to use their version of it.
Quickbooks Saves Money
For a few hundred dollars, most businesses can afford QuickBooks. Churches and other non-profits can use it for all of their basic data and financial record-keeping purposes, including payroll, income, and billing.
Works With Other Common Software
Many databases, word processing, and mail programs integrate well with QuickBooks, saving time and effort in importing and exporting data. This also helps a non-profit stay on budget without having to purchase other specialized programs outside of what they already use.
Ease Of Use For Multiple People & Experience
Non-profits are challenged to keep employees or recruit volunteers. Oftentimes office workers have little previous experience in such positions, but with a little coaching, most can learn to do the tasks they need to quickly. Additionally, the admin can set restrictions, so data entry volunteers have no access to sensitive financial data.
Reports & Bookkeeping Are Easy
Daily tasks, such as entering in accounts payable and receivable, are easily kept up to date. Additionally, the report feature helps a non-profit organization understand their budget and expenses quickly and easily. Non-profits that use an outside bookkeeper also benefit, since most accounting firms understand QuickBooks, allowing for some tasks to be done by the office or by the firm, depending on the non-profit’s needs and resources.
