Whether your mission is helping the community or providing international support to empower and educate global causes, one thing is certain, Not for Profits face tremendous complexity and operational challenges.
They often struggle under a patchwork of applications and spreadsheets, while lacking options for tools that are affordable and flexible enough to meet their particular operating model. This doesn’t just impair operational efficiency, it can make or break their impact.
Here at Annexa, we understand that Not for Profits and social enterprises require technology solutions that can be custom-fit to their needs. That’s why we work with Australian and New Zealand Not for Profits to leverage NetSuite’s cloud-based business management solution.
We map their operations to NetSuite’s capabilities so they are better equipped to manage grant accounting, fundraising, donor and volunteer records, program efficiency tracking, inventory management, spend management, eCommerce and plenty more.
We’ve compiled a sample of the NetSuite solutions we have meticulously adapted to meet the needs of our APAC Not for Profit customers.
“I’ve used a lot of accounting systems in my life, and NetSuite is by far the best. It’s a system that works just as well for finance personnel as non-finance people. Anyone can run their own reports and analyse the data. And we’ve never had issues with data integrity and backups, even with the huge amounts of data we process.”
Frank Moes, Finance Manager, LiveBetter
LiveBetter provides support and services for the aged and people living with disability in regional NSW and QLD.
A financials and reporting challenge
Following a period of growth,LiveBetter needed to prioritise organising their financials and reporting. Hindered by time-consuming reporting and complex work-arounds for even the easiest of financial tasks, they were ready to move to a scalable, people-friendly cloud financials solution.
A user-friendly financials powerhouse
NetSuite Financials streamlined financial processes and delivered real-time visibility operational across four entities and 150 locations and flexibly customise reports. This has made decision-making easier, saved hours in reporting workarounds and supported their mission of reaching more individuals in need of support.
“We wanted a system flexible enough to meet the needs of the organisation, and a partner who could connect NetSuite with external systems. Annexa provided that flexibility.”
Faisal Mukhtar, National CFO, YWCA Australia
As Australia’s leading feminist organisation, YWCA is women-led organisation who undertakes advocacy and programs for women, young women and girl with a goal to achieve real and sustainable change.
A patchwork of systems
With siloed accounting, financial and inventory systems, YWCA was struggling to gain visibility of their operations and financial health across eight distinct businesses and three subsidiaries.
A unified, scalable solution
With NetSuite, YWCA has effectively streamlined operations, enhanced their data extraction and reporting capabilities, freed up staff to focus on more value-adding activities, and all while experiencing high levels of user adoption and satisfaction.
“NetSuite gives us reporting flexibility, and at different levels. If we need to know how much we’ve spent in one region or on a programme, or even how much we’ve spent on technical resources using the funds from a particular funder, we can get that information in real time.”
Alex Philips, Finance Manager, Motivation Australia
Motivation Australia works with developing Pacific Island nations to reduce the impact of impairment, remove barriers, and empower people with disabilities to live their lives to the fullest.
Bogged down with cumbersome systems
Motivation Australia were relying on a cumbersome mix of legacy applications and spreadsheet processes to manage their local and international relationships, programs and finance.
Sky’s the limit
NetSuite has provided Motivation Australia with real-time access to key metrics. This has helped them build a stakeholder‐focussed framework of reporting while better managing their accounting and financials, and maintaining a constituent and donor database.
