Financial management and grant management are arguably the biggest challenges for nonprofits of all sizes. Once you have decided it’s time to upgrade your accounting software to a modern, cloud-based ERP system, that’s where things can get challenging. A good start is to partner with a team like BPM who understands the unique needs of nonprofits from an organizational, operational and financial perspective. Here are a few reasons why.
The Advantages of Working with an Experienced Sage Intacct Nonprofit Partner
The decision to update technology isn’t really about the technology at all. You want to increase productivity, improve accuracy, accelerate outcomes, and automate processes, among other improvements. We are often asked the biggest benefits of working with a partner vs. directly with the software developers. This is one of our favorite questions!
Why do nonprofits choose BPM?
1. Decades of Nonprofit Success
Did you know 40% of BPM’s clients are nonprofits? Our team requires no handholding or education on nonprofit management. We leverage best practices from more than three decades of work with nonprofits to help you identify strengths and opportunities for improvement across operations, then we make your vision a reality.
2. Impactful Improvements
BPM assesses your existing processes and provides recommendations that make an immediate impact. We help you eliminate countless hours of work so executives and staff can focus more on your mission and less on technology. Our team acts as an extension of your own by facilitating all aspects of your software planning, implementation, training, and ongoing support.
3. Nonprofit Expertise
When you partner with BPM, you work with a team of CPAs and nonprofit specialists who understand how to help you succeed in your mission. We bring expertise from day one to streamline grant and fund management, simplify financial management and reporting, improve productivity and collaboration, and so much more.
4. Fast Implementation
We have put together a 4-8 week implementation program to get nonprofits up and running quickly with the basics. Once the foundation is built, we work closely with your team to phase in functionality and other applications so you can scale as your organization grows.
5. Nonprofit Community Involvement
Trust and transparency are huge for nonprofits, and that’s why many depend on BPM because we are deeply immersed in your industry and communities. Several of our professionals hold AICPA Not-For-Profit Certifications, and we serve on your boards to ensure our experts have a real-world understanding of what’s important to your success.
6. Holistic Approach
While BPM is a leading Sage Intacct partner, we are not solely focused on a single product so we can meet your needs in multiple ways. We take a holistic look at your systems to create an integrated technology stack aligned to your needs and goals. Our team not only implements Sage Intacct but is experienced with other solutions including ADP, Host Analytics, FloQast, Concur, Nexonia, Expensify, Bill.com, and Salesforce.
7. Ongoing Support
Our personalized approach to ongoing training and support has resulted in higher user adoption and long-term success. We ensure you are confident with your technology and consistently maximizing your resources and investments.
