How Is Dimensional Accounting Software a Must-Have for Churches?

I'm excited to follow up Baran Sonmez's recent blog post on Dimensions in Accounting Software with a look at how dimensionality is particularly important in the world of churches and faith-based organizations. For some background, I'm a Professional Services Manager at AcctTwo. As a tax accountant, programmer, and Intacct reporting and implementation specialist, I've spent more than 25 years in finance and technology, particularly church finance, and I've held financial analyst and finance director positions at two churches in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

Success Story: Gateway Church finds Intacct to be More Than a Financial Tool


We're always proud of the work we do and the relationships we build with each and every one of our customers, but when we get feedback six months or a year down the road and get to hear how transformative Intacct and our implementation team have been, it's very special. Gateway Church, an AcctTwo customer in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, recently contributed to a story in Church Executive Magazine about how the growing church needed a "streamlined, accessible, and accurate accounting engine," and how Intacct was the perfect fit. The Gateway finance and operations team all agree that "Intacct is, in the end, a ministry tool."

Church Finance: 3 Reasons to Dig Yourself out of Excel

Do You Have the POWER?

Since the inception of Excel, almost 30 years ago, Microsoft has been improving the computing power of the spreadsheet. As business intelligence requirements emerged, the need for unique calculations - graphing and macros (automating tasks in a spreadsheet) - became instrumental in the process of gathering and reporting data. For many years, analysts have lived and breathed in Excel. Excel provided users with the ability to produce results with automated computing power.  For those buried in the data, this was a life saver.
