Fresno, California (PRWEB) December 31, 2012
Aplos Software, LLC released a new, streamlined Startup Wizard for Aplos Accounting this week to make it faster and easier for churches to sign-up for the web-based accounting software and customize it for their own unique needs. Aplos Accounting is an inexpensive, fund accounting software for churches that is online and designed to be simple enough that a non-accountant can do all the accounting accurately, quickly and confidently.
“Churches often spend the first few months of the year analyzing last year’s finances, planning budgets, preparing giving receipts and searching for the most recommended church accounting software, so they can make next year’s accounting faster, easier and more affordable,” said Tim Goetz, CPA and Aplos Software co-founder. “The new Startup Wizard makes it possible to be up and running in just a few minutes on Aplos Accounting, which is the best church accounting software available.
A Simple Solution For True Fund Accounting
Not only will churches be able to easily prepare their 2013 budget and do the basics of fund accounting, but they will also be able to import 2012 donations to automatically generate giving statements in time for the IRS deadline of January 31, 2013 using the Aplos App called Contribution Management. 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 platform 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. Another type of user could be a church volunteer or untrained staff member who will help enter end-of-the-year donations, update donor contact information and print Contributions Statements.
In addition to providing all of the essential accounting functions, Aplos’s Cloud-based accounting software means there is no software download needed. In addition, users don’t need to worry about saving a back-up in case a computer crashes because Aplos does it automatically on its secure platform.
