Unlocking the Power of Real-Time Data at Your Nonprofit

Mar 27, 2019
By: Brian R. Gaumont

Nonprofit finance professionals face an ongoing barrage of challenges. Small budgets meet high expectations and even higher regulatory scrutiny. Added to this the ongoing competition that exists for donors and grants, achieving your mission is often harder than you would expect. Your days are often long and your technology is likely outdated, but the work is rewarding.

Knowing this, no matter how much you care about your organization’s mission, no matter how driven you are, there comes a point in which analysis becomes challenging, the time to report gets longer and it’s hard to even know if the data is accurate and error-free.

There are only so many hours in a day, and if you spend the latter half of your day wondering if someone is going to ask you to generate a report — knowing that if they do, you’ll be burning the midnight oil working on it — it may be time to reconsider your options.

For many nonprofit finance people, this is a way of life — combining entry-level software and spreadsheets to manage the business. Sadly, this also adds risk. Spreadsheets are inaccurate, entry-level software could falter at any moment and you are spending more hours each month for diminishing return. However, there is a better way, and if you are running a nonprofit in Wisconsin, we have three exciting live events to discuss what’s next.

Driving Decisions With Timely Financials, Budgets and Dashboards

The next generation of accounting software offers continually updated, role-based dashboards, charts and other nifty visualization tools to help CFOs analyze data in real time. Isn't it time to take your organization to the next level?

We are pleased to announce that our very own Brian Dietz, Partner at Wipfli, will head to Wisconsin for a couple days this April to discuss how nonprofits can improve business decision-making, communication and outcomes with powerful visualizations, real-time data and a solution designed to exceed the needs and expectations of nonprofits.
