B2PCommerce introduced NonprofitBooks 2002, a fund accounting software solution that’s designed to meet the specialized needs of nonprofit organizations. Designed as a companion application to Intuit’s popular accounting programs QuickBooks Pro 2002,QuickBooks Premier 2002 and Premier: Accountant Edition 2002, NonprofitBooks may meet the accounting requirements of small- to medium-sized nonprofit organizations.
NonprofitBooks facilitates accounting and reporting, allocates program expenses, administers grants and generates specialized financial reports for boards, contributors and regulatory agencies. NonprofitBooks’ interface should be familiar to QuickBooks users, and its Set-up Wizard should help users quickly install and set up the program. NonprofitBooks relies on Crystal Reports to generate financial reports using QuickBooks data. It also can help users prepare IRS Form 990.
B2PCommerce provides training and support for NonprofitBooks through its Training & Support Partner Program. There currently are 11 such training centers around the country in cities including San Francisco, Chicago, San Diego, Detroit and San Antonio. The company also has created an Advisor Network as a resource for nonprofit accounting expertise and information. The network serves as a business referral tool and helps consultants service their existing clientele better.
