I'm looking for some opinions on the best accounting package out there for a non-profit academic research institute that is entirely grant-funded. Since we are not a business, a lot of the packages have
Has anyone had any experience with software that might be suitable for an organization that doesn't have typical revenue streams as we might? I should note that we're in Canada and do some fund accounting by CICA standards.
We've been looking at Quickbooks and Simply Accounting, but neither is ideal. Our granting agencies could be set up as "customers," but it is messy. Any other packages we should look at? What about more "open-ended" packages that lack the turnkey nature of QB or SA. Something that would require a lot of work to set up initially, but would be extremely flexible.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
