Lesson 4 – Key Factors

 

Key Factors

Another key factor is the ability to integrate with additional modules that your organization may need, such as payroll, fundraising, member management and student billing.

Some of the important factors when evaluating nonprofit software include: presenting a clean audit trail, provide adequate controls and safeguards of your data, the product’s ease of use, its reliability, the availability of support and training, customization and pricing.

There are no clear distinctions between low-end, mid-level and high end nonprofit accounting software. Don’t let price alone be your deciding factor. Some organizations will do perfectly well with a Honda, while other will need the sophistication of a Mercedes Benz.
