Mixing BowlWe all want our businesses to be successful, though sometimes it is hard to pinpoint where you may be going wrong or how. Managing and evaluating your business is part of the daily requirements to keep the business train ‘chugging along’. So when it comes to evaluation time, reporting accurately the first time around can give you a clear indication of how to move forward or where to cut back.

In the wake of recent policy changes and funding cuts by the Federal government, one of the biggest questions Not-for-Profits (NFPs) may ask themselves is “How will we survive?”  Pro Bono Australia has released survey results recently, indicating a sector-wide move towards alternative funding sources. Queensland in particular had the most pessimistic outlook about the sector’s current performance and was in the bottom 3 states when it came to future expectations. So where does the money come from?

Everyone seems to be complaining about all the issues and frustrations that have come as a result of the GFC.  Finance from banks is one of the top causes of these complaints, with good reason; it is a lot harder to secure a loan than it was ten years ago.  Banks now demand perfect applications and then you might, just might, on the off chance; secure a loan.

We’ve recently returned from MYOB’s annual Partner Connect conferences in Wellington and the Gold Coast and it’s clear that MYOB are responding to the increased competition in the accounting software world – a response that can only be beneficial to users of all accounting software.

ReportBundlesImageIn the next month or so we will release an update many of you have been waiting for – the option to bundle your monthly reports and run them all with one click. We previewed this at our Calxa Club last week in Sydney and had very favourable feedback.

One of the regular comments we have had from customers is that when preparing monthly (or quarterly) reports, it sometimes is hard to remember the various report criteria settings for the different reports in all their different combinations for different users.


Dealing With Change - Lessons From The NDIS

Monday, 25 August 2014

NDISNewsImageWe’ve been working with a small group of organisations in the Sydney area who are either involved in the NDIS rollout now or soon will be. It’s been inspiring to see the preparation that they’ve been doing and a pleasure to work with such progressive people.

When the initial request came from the NSW government to assist with this pilot study we only had a vague idea of what the transition to the NDIS would mean for service providers in the disability sector. Six months on and it’s apparent that no-one has all the answers but the big lesson is that those who are prepared will be the ones to survive and thrive.

MetroScreenYoureOnYourOwnKidWe loved the discussion generated at our Calxa Club in Sydney last week and look forward to more of the same in Southport this week. The topic was ‘Leading from the Back Office’ and it’s great to see so many inspiring people in the finance area.

Back office staff are often under-appreciated yet they can show great leadership, influencing change in the organisations they work in. We had an inspiring discussion on the challenges faced and the resourcefulness shown in finding solutions.
