I believe my predecessor used OSAS for over 15 years so she obviously felt comfortable with it. I can make do with it and at least track my bottom line. No real reporting other than basic balance sheets.,CYMA

OSAS is being used solely in the finance department. It is used to generate AP checks and to record all financials including AR and bank reconciliation. Only 2 employees access it, myself and our purchasing agent.
  • No confusing reporting.
  • Easy to follow interface.
  • Simplified experience.
  • Not user-friendly or intuitive in the least. Even with the instruction manual, it's like part of it is missing or you are expected to know certain items before even looking.
  • Reporting is very basic and impossible to customize on the user's end. You must have tech support build them for you. Also, no cross fiscal year reporting.
  • Can't cut only one check if you have other invoices already entered in the batch.
  • The chart of account codes are not independent. You must build your whole GL for each fund source or program, which leaves you with an unwieldy chart of accounts.
I honestly think that it's extremely outdated and don't understand why anyone would still use it. Especially in a non-profit setting. In our field we have to be able to track revenue and expenses by funds, and with the way those funding streams tend to cross an agency or company's fiscal year, the fact that it is virtually impossible to pull the information in that manner restricts a finance department more than anything.

About OSAS

OSAS Accounting and Business Software (Enterprise Resource Planning - ERP) is a business accounting software suite for small- to medium-sized businesses from Open Systems, Inc, which is similar to their Traverse product, but can be deployed across platforms (Linux, Mac OS X, and WIndows as well). OSAS can be hosted on-premises or in the cloud, or in a hybrid fashion.

OSAS is flexible and scalable and contains many features; general accounting features (e.g. a general ledger) are present and also analytics for budgeting and expense management, multiple users with access control, and it contains sales and inventory management features. It is customizable, with custom fields, forms, and functions. Its full breadth provides business intelligence functionality and a CRM if these should be desired, and the software is mobile-accessible. Given the many ways in which OSAS can be implemented its cost will vary.
