Fresno, California (PRWEB) December 31, 2012
This Thursday, December 20, 2012, Aplos Software, LLC released a new, user-friendly Startup Wizard for Aplos Accounting, the web-based nonprofit accounting software. Many organizations consider changing accounting software at the beginning of their fiscal year, but are often daunted by the expectation of a labor intensive or confusing process. The new, streamlined Aplos Startup Wizard will guide new Aplos customers through customizing their account for their unique needs in approximately 15 minutes. Once complete, these nonprofit organizations will be prepared to do their 2013 accounting using a simple, online accounting software that is designed for a non-accountant to work in it comfortably and accurately.
“Many of our customers tried Quickbooks for nonprofits, but found it confusing and more expensive than they expected. In addition, it is not designed to do true fund accounting – tracking your income and expenses as they relate to specific purposes or funds, which is essential to managing your nonprofit,” said Tim Goetz, CPA and co-founder of Aplos Software. “Aplos Accounting guides you through the process of creating these funds and accounts so you can quickly, easily and affordably follow the best practices for nonprofit accounting.”
Aplos Recognized As Top Recommended Nonprofit Accounting Software
Aplos Accounting was recently reviewed by The CPA Practice Advisor and several other professionals as a recommended nonprofit accounting software due to its easy set-up, import capability, intuitive layout for easy management and the simplicity of creating financial reports.
Aplos customers have also been quick to share their positive experiences. “Aplos is easy to understand and blends well with our nonprofit needs,” said Artie Padilla, executive director of Every Neighborhood Partnership. “I strongly recommend you look into this product. It’s tailor made for organizations that need a simple, yet functional, software.”
Not-For-Profit Organizations Start 2013 With Aplos Accounting
Aplos Accounting is designed for any small or mid-sized nonprofit organization, whether they are a 501(c)3, private foundation, church or other faith-based organization. In addition to fund accounting, the nonprofit will be able to prepare a 2013 budget and import any 2012 donations to print contribution statements by IRS deadline of January 31, 2013. Other available Apps include budgeting, bank reconciliation, check printing and a people database to manage donor and vendor contact information.
Aplos Accounting’s web-based software includes the ability to have multiple users with various permission levels who can access the software from any location using an Internet connection. For example, a nonprofit can create a user for a board member or accountant so this person can log in from their office to view reports or audit the accounting, but not make changes to any transactions.
In addition to providing all of the essential accounting functions, Aplos’s Cloud-based accounting software means customers don’t need to download anything to get started, they don’t have to worry about computer crashes and data is automatically backed-up. Aplos Accounting pricing ranges from $11.99 up to $30.95 per month. Nonprofits can register for a 15-day free trial of Aplos Accounting at http://www.aplossoftware.com.
