Accounting Systems Set Up

Project Details

What We Need
  • Setup of selected accounting software (e.g. Aplos, Araize)
  • Training and guidelines on how to manage system and generate basic reports
Additional Details

Ideally we would like our accounting system to be linked to a CRM system and also our event planning system.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have Quickbooks and salesforce memberships, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have an accountant and staff, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $5,409 , allowing us to build 2 banks for 50 widows in Kenya, Malawi, or Egypt!

We need to professionalize our reporting and CRM systems.
