Why Non-Profits Should Move to Cloud Solutions
Read Time: 5 mins
Non-Profits have a number of compliance requirements and need to produce various reports for various stakeholders. To deliver on these, non-profits have to respond using their limited IT resources and non profit accounting software that can require extensive manual works.
According to the Non Profit Innovation Report by Sage Intacct, of the total people interviewed, 64% said ‘More Time consuming’ is a concerning issue, whereas 57% of them said they are concerned about ‘Poor Visibility’ because of lack of real-time visibility, and another 57% are concerned about ‘inefficiency’ because of multiple, disconnected systems. These can be attributed to old accounting practices or out-dated on-premise accounting solutions.
Here cloud computing can play an important role and makes non-profits focus more on their mission. Just like online banking and online shopping, using cloud computing, non-profits can perform all their activities including accounting through cloud solutions without the hassle.
