AccountMate

AccountMate is a great product for wholesale and distributors. It manages the inventory cycles comprehensively, from purchasing to stocking, to sales and delivery. There are a great many tools available to manage inventory, properties, and financials. The availability to have third-party add-ons offers even greater opportunities to meet the needs of the end-user. The system is not really suited for certain types of service industries: legal, medical, and those businesses that invoice on time.

With our grants team, we wanted to seek a solution for seamless Grant Management + Accounting. Managing expenses can be difficult but the ease of use on the AP side as well as the layered budgets help for our success. Interfacing with our fundraising software also is a scenario that works extremely well.

Blackbaud

  • Metrics in the reporting features could be enhanced to allow for cross-year/event comparisons.
  • It does not allow for single-sign-on from other platforms, requiring additional keystrokes for access/exit.

      After implementation teams started using Financial Edge rather quickly which helped internally a lot. Especially since we use Raiser's Edge for our fundraising programs... Blackbaud has done a great job with Financial Edge as well as NXT (which I've used also and would speak very highly of as well).

      We have received great support whether it be around implementation, training, reporting, or customization features. The support team at Blackbaud has done a great job for over ten years for our organization. I would recommend their support team to anyone. I hope to continue to connect with their team in the future on different projects.

      Alternatives Considered

      AccountMate

      We use AccountMate for a number of reasons, particularly its ease of use and the ability to customize any part of the system (with source code residing on the end-user system--a HUGE advantage).

      Most FE installations I have participated in were from QuickBooks Pro. QuickBooks, if set up well, is a great alternative for the smaller association or nonprofit, but it has challenges handling some of the unique aspects of nonprofit accounting. Recent editions of QuickBooks Pro have included a new nonprofit component, but it can be difficult to use.

      • Financial Edge has enabled us to save time with respect to monthly reporting.
      • Financial Edge has helped us streamline some larger entries that were once a pain to enter in Fundware.
      • The F-9 plug allows us to report information in our desired format as opposed to using the reports within the FE application.
      • Overall, I would say that Financial Edge definitely saves us time on closing each month which frees us up for other projects within our department.
