General Ledger Module
General Ledger is the heart and soul of your FUND accounting system. It is designed specifically for the specialized requirements of nonprofit organizations and government agencies with multiple fund ledgers. FUND makes simple work of managing different grants with different calendar years, allowing you to allocate expenses to the right accounts while maintaining clear audit trails. Customizable reports provide clear information needed by managers and nonprofit boards to successfully guide your organization.
Control your greatest expense easily and accurately. FUND Suite Payroll offers the flexibility to match your payroll requirements exactly, no matter how unique they seem. With user-defined tax tables and calculations, you can efficiently manage your payroll processing.
Accounts Payable Module
Getting your payables out on time with accuracy is the key to long term success. Accounts Payable takes the worry out of paying your bills. High level cash management features make sure you never pay a bill too early or too late. Always know when you can take advantage of early payment discounts.
Bank Reconciliation Module
Bank Reconciliation, a powerful self-audit module, reconciles bank statements with actual checks and deposits. Many organizations with limited accounts payable needs actually use Bank Reconciliation for handling payables. Bank Reconciliation collects all information from your integrated Cougar Mountain modules and helps you quickly reconcile your bank account information.
Purchase Order Module
Purchase Order helps you manage purchases from the time you decide to buy something until you process an invoice. This module also includes a powerful encumbrance feature to set aside funds for future expenditures.
