Does Your Nonprofit Need More From Abila?

A few months ago, at our Faith-Based Finance Collaborative, AcctTwo's Managed Accounting Services Controller, Shelly Einspahr, and Covenant Church's COO, Brian Coleman, sat down and talked about how we work together. Little did we know back at the end of February, our world was going to change dramatically in a matter of weeks. The news about COVID-19 was still somewhat sparse, mainly impacting China, Italy, and starting to creep into California – specifically around San Francisco. Churches went from serving thousands to having to pivot and become virtual. In fact, the whole world had to pivot and become remote. Figuring out how all the pieces fit together and how to maintain business-as-usual was a challenge. Even for organizations that have had cloud-based infrastructure in place, it was still challenging at times because most of us went from working 9-to-5 to working 24/7 which included, parenting and homeschooling.
