MYTH: YOU CAN’T CONTROL YOUR DATA IN THE CLOUD.
FACT: JMT Consulting can modernize your nonprofit’s accounting by moving it to the cloud. You’ll cut costs, save time & control all your data.
It’s a common misperception that migrating your nonprofit’s accounting software to the cloud takes control away from your own IT department and gives it to a vendor. The fact is cloud-based accounting platforms remove the burdens of managing infrastructure and applications, allowing your IT department to work in more strategic ways. This lets your IT team spend more time managing data and less time with the upkeep of outdated software and equipment.
MYTH: THE CLOUD PROVIDES CONVENIENCE AT THE COST OF SECURITY.
FACT: Security used to be a drawback for moving to the cloud. With JMT Consulting by your side, cloud security is your nonprofit’s advantage.
The myth of questionable cloud security is both out-of-date and a little out-of-touch. While data breaches have certainly occurred, studies show that 90% of those breaches were the result of human error. It should be comforting to know that there hasn’t been a publicly reported breach of a major cloud infrastructure provider since 2010.
It should also be comforting to know that your nonprofit finance leaders can trust JMT Consulting to modernize your accounting solutions with our all-encompassing approach to migrating to the cloud. We’ve worked with more than 2,000 nonprofits since 1991 and are the leading experts in nonprofit accounting software.
MYTH: SaaS CAN’T GUARANTEE SCALABILITY OR AVAILABILITY.
FACT: SaaS scales to meet demand with 24/7 access. Partner with JMT Consulting to find a cloud-based solution tailored to your nonprofit accounting needs.
Moving your nonprofit’s on-site accounting resources to the cloud may appear to be a daunting task. And finding a Saas solution with reliable access and future-proof scalability that fits your needs and budget can be challenging in an ever-changing landscape with multiple vendors. But all it really takes is finding the right partner.
A major benefit of SaaS is on-demand pricing. You only pay for what you use, and the software intuitively scales up or down to meet your needs. Plus, you’ll always be working on the most up-to-date software version, and your team will benefit from 24/7 access to your real-time finances. JMT Consulting understands your nonprofit’s needs and goals, and with our network of cloud-based vendors, we’ll find the perfect SaaS fit. Are you ready to bust more nonprofit accounting myths?
MYTH: CLOUD APPS ARE CONVENIENT, BUT CAN’T BE CUSTOMIZED
FACT: A host of plug-ins & modules can customize cloud-based apps. Partner with JMT Consulting for a tailored system to meet your nonprofit’s needs.
A criticism of early cloud-based software was the lack of customization around the applications. The one-size-fits-all approach left a lot of business-specific features behind, especially for a field as nuanced and multi-faceted as the nonprofit sector. But those days are long gone. Today, there’s a host of application program interfaces (APIs), modules, plug-ins & third-party apps that add a whole new layer of customization for cloud-based accounting and nonprofit ERP solutions.
As experts in mission-driven nonprofit finance, JMT Consulting has helped more than 2,000 nonprofits optimize their financial systems. We understand the challenges your nonprofit faces in moving to cloud-based accounting software. Not only does the system have to comply with accounting standards, but it also must work seamlessly with the multiple applications used for customer relationship management, HR, payroll, donor management, fundraising, and more.
MYTH: SaaS CUTS COSTS BUT DOESN’T MEET COMPLIANCE.
FACT: There are compliant, cloud-based accounting solutions solely for nonprofits. JMT Consulting can deliver a tailored nonprofit accounting system to meet your needs.
Maintaining compliance with laws and regulations is a complicated process that requires a lot of expertise.
