“Before, everyone was in the dark, but with Sage Intacct it’s a whole new world. Department managers can see precisely how they are doing with the click of a button . . . As a result, people are controlling their costs proactively, the organization’s overall expenses are down, we’re sticking to our budget, and our spend is under control.” Alisa B. CFO

In the mission-driven nonprofit world, accounting and financial management can sometimes slip down the priority list. It’s not always easy to allocate budget dollars to back office infrastructure that doesn’t directly support the nonprofit agenda, and it’s even harder to find the time and expertise to make it all work. Consider some of the obstacles:
What do nonprofit financial leaders have to say about their move to the cloud?
“All of our chapters can access our cloud-based financials,” said Nikki Jones, Controller, Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association. “We have volunteers working all over the world at all hours of the day and night. With our system, they access the same world-class financial foundation that many companies use. Our board and chapter leaders have real-time access to reports, registrations, metrics, and analyses. That means we’re constantly on top of our operation and can make strategic decisions faster. For us, the cloud is critical. It’s the only way to go.”
“Cloud financials are absolutely key to running a nonprofit today,” said James Linday, Vice President and CFO, Great Books Foundation. “Now we can eliminate lots of manual work, be more productive, and eliminate all of those capital investments. This is a predictable, flat operating expense, and we save at least $30,000 a year this way.”
In nonprofit financial management, survival depends on predictable costs, a reliable infrastructure, and world-class functionality.

Two Indiana companies are collaborating by combining testing and laboratory services with a software solution that tracks, monitors, and reports results.
CARMEL, IND. (August 6, 2020) - Leaf Software Solutions has developed a COVID-19 test tracking and compliance solution. In collaboration with ARIA Diagnostics, which operates COVID-19 testing sites throughout central Indiana, the software application is now being offered to organizations wishing to proactively address the sudden changes required as people return to work, school, and other activities. With a comprehensive testing, tracking, monitoring, and compliance solution, organizations will have information at their fingertips that will allow them to make decisions that prioritize the health and safety of their workforce, customers, student body, visitors, teams, etc.
“Our goal from day one has been to help people return to their lives as safely as possible,” said Vipin Ahlakha, President of Aria Diagnostics. “The software application from Leaf is a valuable complement to our diagnostic testing and laboratory services. A single test result is certainly useful, but organizations require a comprehensive view to track results and have information to help keep people’s safety first as the country and the state reopen.”
Chad Hankinson, President at Leaf Software Solutions noted that, “Proactive testing and tracking provides businesses, schools, higher ed institutions, and many others with the tools needed to keep safety as the top priority for their operating procedures. It makes good business sense, as does the collaboration with ARIA.”
As a result of this partnership, organizations may use ARIA Diagnostics for on-site testing as well as several drive-through locations along with the Leaf test tracking application as one comprehensive solution. The tracking application from Leaf has capabilities that include an executive dashboard, individual compliance and monitoring, test tracking, system generated alerts and reminders, 360-degree views, as well as field level auditing. By using the Microsoft Power Platform, the developers at Leaf created a flexible solution that may be repurposed and customized to add value to organizations seeking to track virtually any process, such as policy and procedure testing, compliance, and skills testing.
