QuickBooks offers a specific version of its accounting software tool to cater for the needs of non-profit organizations.
The QuickBooks version for non-profit organizations have tools that can be customized to fit different types of organization. Using QuickBooks for non-profit organizations on desktop offers some benefits to non-profit organizations but using a cloud hosting version is preferable. Apart from being able to access data anywhere and at any time, there are many more benefits to enjoy when QuickBooks for non-profit organizations is hosted on the cloud.
One of the more obvious advantages of cloud storage is data security. Using a desktop version of QuickBooks for the non-profit organization does offer some levels of data security. However, QuickBooks hosting takes data security to a higher level. As the administrator, you can secure your data with a multi-level password. Determine which data can be accessed by whom at any given time.
There is also a daily backup routine that ensures that your organization's data stays intact and always updated. Most non-profit organizations place a high value on data security. QuickBooks hosting offers all it takes to keep data secured and accessible to authorized persons.
There will always be times when key decisions will have to be taken based on available data. Distance should not be a barrier. Rather than wait for a top executive to be physically present in your office to access data before decisions are taken, QuickBooks hosting offers a better alternative. With cloud hosting, key decision-makers in your organization can access relevant data easily without being physically present in your office. This helps speed up the decision-making process. It also saves a lot of funds that could have been spent on transportation. Some costs are associated with delayed actions. QuickBooks hosting uses remote access capacities to keep these costs to the barest minimum.
Easy Integration of tools
When planning the use of new technology, it is important to consider how the new will utilize existing tools for greater efficiency. QuickBooks hosting allows non-profit organizations to use add-on or software they have been using previously on the QuickBooks platform. QuickBooks support hundreds of add-on. As long as the existing software works in the same environment as QuickBooks, it can be easily integrated. Some important tools that can be synced with QuickBooks include TimeSheets, Contacts, and major project management tools.
Nothing brings more ease to the mind than knowing that your data centers can grow to accommodate the needs of your fast-growing non-profit organization. As you carry out more projects, more data needs to be stored. QuickBooks hosting plans offer scalable data storage capacities. If you are about to exhaust data storage capacity for one plan, you can migrate to a plan with higher storage easily. Your organization's data will not be tampered with. You only get more storage space.
With QuickBooks hosting, you can create an all-in-one organizational tool. Not only will your accounting operations be made seamless. Using CRMs can help automate most of the repetitive tasks that are peculiar to your non-profit organization. Using the right combination of tools with QuickBooks hosting will guarantee less time spent on tasks and ensure organizational efficiency in the long run.
Save costs of operation
With QuickBooks hosting, there will be little need for increasing your IT staff. Since data maintenance and upgrade has already been included in your QuickBooks hosting plan, there is no need to pay any other fees at all. Combine the cost saved on IT staff with the costs saved on the need to transport top executives to access data. QuickBooks hosting alone can save non-profit organizations thousands of dollars monthly. Couple QuickBooks with the appropriate CRMs and cost saved could run into tens of thousands of dollars on running costs saved annually. Ultimately, this means more funds will be available to complete existing programs or start new ones.
