Forgotten150x150“Leading from the back office requires a common goal, something shared, that everyone wants to achieve and sees the benefits of.”

Most people don’t think of leadership originating from the back office, yet there are countless examples of change conceived by Finance Managers to make organisations more efficient and a better place to work.

Boost Your ReportingAs part of our regular series of Web Chats, Shem covered KPI reporting last month. His presentation gives you an overview of how KPIs work in Calxa and some suggestions on how you can use them in your organisation. The many standard KPIs are useful to all Calxa users but if you have Calxa Premier you can also benefit from the KPI editor and create your own calculations. With the ability to now include these in standard Budget Summary or Spreadsheet reports, you have a very powerful reporting tool at your fingertips.

Most Calxa users sign up to get their licence on a monthly or annual basis. There is however, the option to get a 3-year and 5-year licence. This way of packaging our Calxa Premier product was born with not-for-profits in mind.

When some of our customers shared with us their tedious and lenghty board approval process, the request for a longer term commitment made sense.

NDISParkingSome of our customers are already involved in the NDIS and others are preparing for it, but there are probably lessons for many Not-for-Profits (and even businesses) in how others have managed the transition.

We’ve been working closely with a small group of organisations in NSW, helping them review their existing systems and looking at what needs to be changed or improved with the change to their future funding model.

CalxaLiveChat150V2Have you tried our Live Chat support feature yet? Live Chat is our online support option available on the Calxa website.  It provides instant online assistance from our support team.  Wherever you are on the Calxa website, you will be able to access the Live Chat button on the right hand side of the web page.

Live chat can sometimes be more convenient than emailing if you only require a quick answer to a support issue.  It is also great for clarification on procedures when stepping through a support note on the website.


Getting Ready for the NDIS

Tuesday, 29 April 2014

ndislogoThe National Disability Insurance Scheme is slowly rolling out around the country over the next 4 years (untouched by the recent Federal Budget). We’ve been working with a group of organisations in NSW, helping them review the way they’re working, both in MYOB and with Calxa. Our aim has been to look at what information they need to collect and how they can report on it in the new funding environment.

The NDIS puts more control over spending in the hands of the people with disability, rather than the organisations providing them with care. For the organisations it means a change from block funding (and the associated acquittal process) to more a “fee for service” basis. It sounds simple but, as you can probably imagine, it can be more complex in practice.

There are some small improvements in the 2014 version of ReckonAccounts but they say bank feeds are on the way – something many of you will be looking forward to. In the meantime there’s better handling of superannuation calculations and leave reporting as well as improved searching for items.
