Financial management challenges of non profits could be solved with cloud erp

  1. 1. ERP Solutions for Non-Profits Answer Accounting Management Challenges Rupsha Dasgupta Accountability of resources holds the key to the success of any nonprofit organization. This lies at the core of fund accounting. Quite similar to commercial enterprises, nonprofits often function in a complicated financial and legal scenario. Fund accounting, consequently often gets complicated if not managed efficiently. Cloud ERP solutions have successfully risen to the challenge of nonprofit accounting. Offering a range of functionalities, cloud-based ERP software has steered many organizations towards successful financial management. Three Fundamental Accounting Management Hurdles for Non-Profits 1. Restricted funds management is an equally tricky task to accomplish. By law, nonprofits are prohibited from co-mingling funds. Funds need to be allocated to specific programs for which they were granted. Tied to restricted fund management is cost allocation. To ensure reimbursement, costs need to be tracked and allocated correctly. This renders the process more complex, involving complicated calculations. 2. As organizations grow, grant management tends to get complicated. Grants need to be properly managed with detailed records of receivable and expenditures. This process becomes quite complex when there are multiple grants to be tracked. 3. Payroll management could also prove to be difficult for nonprofits in the absence of skilled personnel. Most often outsourcing is not an option as it is adds to overhead costs.
  2. 2. ERP Software: Key to Efficient Nonprofit Financial Management. Nonprofits that have adopted accounting software are successfully managing finances including funds. Particularly, cloud powered ERP solutions are gaining popularity among nonprofits, which have demonstrated prowess in managing restricted funds and complex cost calculations.
