Background

NorthStar Church is a large church near Atlanta, GA that is associated with the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). The goal of NorthStar is to build eternal relationships that help people find their way home. After a rigorous software evaluation, NorthStar Church chose AcctTwo's solution over other on-premises and cloud packages as the best church financial software to fit the needs of the organization.

Previous Accounting Challenges

  • NorthStar Church was using ACS for financials but was looking for a cloud-based solution that would solve the problems the church had with access to the system, IT support, and reporting requirements.
  • ACS simply wasn't able to handle the reporting they needed, and the staff was forced to build reports in Excel.
  • Manual data entry was time-consuming and error-prone, and the staff couldn't access the system from anywhere but the church office.

Benefits Realized with AcctTwo

  • The reporting capabilities are more powerful and better suited for churches than those in ACS.
  • NorthStar Church now has a much easier way to tag and track expenses.
  • With a simplified chart of accounts and data dimensions, NorthStar can now report on relevant information by ministry and tailor reports for ministry and other church leaders.

Highlighted Comments from NorthStar Church's Financial Assistant

"There was nothing I threw at AcctTwo that they didn't already know how to handle," said Niki Faith, Financial Assistant at NorthStar Church. "AcctTwo was definitely invested in our project and I'd give them a 10 out of 10 without a doubt. Their team really understands churches and our needs.

"The dimensions and reporting are vastly superior to ACS which forced us to add dozens of accounts to our chart of accounts, rather than simply tagging transactions with dimensions, and was much more cumbersome to use."
