Denali FUND abides by Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), as mandated by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), so it’s built to meet your organization’s unique needs.

Our complete accounting package includes nine software modules that combine to form a complete accounting package for your accounting needs. And each module has unique benefits that can help you manage your organization.

General Ledgers Organize Financial Transactions

The General Ledger module also features:

  • Three-year budget recording for financial forecasting.

The Payroll module also features:

  • Information with user- and function-specific security.
  • Payroll expenses calculated on various projects.
  • Benefits and deductions that can be calculated in fixed amounts for health insurance, unit amounts for vacation and sick leave accrual, and percentage of gross for retirement.

Accounts Payable to Manage and Pay Bills

Denali takes the worry out of getting payables out accurately and on time. You’ll never pay a bill too early or too late. And no bill is duplicated or paid twice. Denali tracks partial payments and flags recurring bills, so you don’t have to enter them into the system more than once.

The Accounts Payable module also features:

  • Automatic cash requirement forecasting for bills due.
  • Check printing in laser or dot matrix formats.
  • An unlimited number of transactions.

Accounts Receivable to Manage What You’re Owed

The Order Entry module also features:

  • Customizable invoices, quotes, and work orders.
  • Comprehensive sales histories.
  • Sales tax adjustment based on destinations.

Reconcile statements with checks and deposits. Denali collects all the information from other modules for faster results. Accounts Payable and payroll checks are posted to the Bank Reconciliation module. And every transaction is flagged for easy auditing.

The Bank Reconciliation module also features:

  • Checks that sort as they’re printed to simplify distribution.
  • Unlimited bank account setup for multiple banks.
