Access to Showcase Latest Not-For-Profit Software at CHASE

Solutions include web-enabled HR, time and expense management and workflow solutions

COLCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 9, 2010) - Access, the mid-market consulting, software and solutions provider, will be showcasing its latest not-for-profit software solutions at CHASE to help charities increase efficiency and reduce complexity and costs across their organisations. The solutions being demonstrated will include web-enabled HR software, time and expense management and workflow forms solutions. The event is set to take place at the Business Design Centre in London from 23rd - 24th February 2010; Access will be on stand 38.

Access solutions provide powerful organisation-wide functionality which integrates seamlessly into existing applications such as Raiser's Edge, Gift Aid Manager and Caseware. It also has many well-known not-for-profit customers including the Prostrate Cancer Charity, the Competition Commission and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Jon Jorgensen, a director for Access, commented, "Not-for-profit customers, like their commercial counterparts, want software systems that talk to each other. They know that having a single system, operating in real-time, will eliminate re-keying of data, improving accuracy as a result. Prospective customers are saying to us that they don't fully trust the quality of the information in their existing disparate systems. It does cause them great concern, and every charity is painfully aware that they stand accountable for how their funds are spent.

"This is where Access can help because we have both the solutions and consultancy expertise to help them overcome the issues they face and obtain full visibility of information throughout their operation. We can help them reduce complexity and increase efficiency throughout every area of their organisation, so staff and volunteers are focusing on the work that really counts."

The Access solution also supports charity-specific reporting such as SOFA/SORP; project, grant, fund, and event management; automatic apportion of costs, and the tracking of restricted and unrestricted funds. Jon continued, "We can also help organisations keep a track of their carbon footprint, with our Accounting for Carbon Emissions solution. Our solutions come with this functionality built in, providing the tools to easily measure and report on their carbon emissions. This shows donors that the charity is serious about the green agenda and is being proactive in addressing its impact on the environment."

In addition to meeting the charity's finance function requirements, the modular-based system makes it much easier for organisations to account for staff activity, even if they are always on the move or based at remote sites. It allows them to enter timesheets and expenses, and raise purchase orders through a single online interface. The Access solution also incorporates workflow technology which can be flexed to the way that a charity wishes to operate, putting an end to time wasted paper-chasing.
