I have taken some quiet time this weekend to focus on getting Calxa Express up and running for our business in preparation for a meeting with the bank manager next week and have to say it was the most enjoyable budgeting experience I have ever had. I will definitely be a raving fan!

Miwatj Health Aboriginal Corporation provides comprehensive health services to some of our most isolated communities,in East Arnhemland, at the top of the Gulf – with 120 staff in Nhulunbuy, Gunyangara and Galiwinku (Elcho Island). Our chief challenge is providing high quality services to meet complex remote health needs.
Calxa has greatly improved our planning and management,with fast reporting and forecasting.
The ability to quickly run program and cash forecasts allows us to meet emerging challenges and maximize our grants use. Our team managers can also quickly run reports geared to their needs.
We particularly appreciate the fore-thought that has gone into the product: The Budget Factory module recently helped us quickly create CPI-indexed budgets for 30 programs - this saved us many days of work during the busy budgeting period.
Likewise the new Account Trees module will be huge help, as we move to meet a new government requirement for report formatting under the national standard chart of accounts (SCOA),from July 1.
Once again, our thanks for a great product !

Just this week I saved $5,000 by reviewing my expenses and changing one of my suppliers. I wouldn’t have been prompted to do that if I hadn’t been using Calxa’s cashflow forecast. Calxa Express quickly provides a cashflow forecast that is accurate to the cent.

Calxa integrates directly with our MYOB files and enables us to make monthly comparisons of actuals to budgets. Using Calxa, we can monitor our budgets and track the progress of the company. Having accurate reports that are easy to interpret and streamlined effectively with our existing financial data, allows us to make informed decisions on business opportunities and potential challenges. The Budget Summary report that includes a comparison to Last Year suits us perfectly. Ultimately, Calxa has given our organisation the ability to maintain budget control.

Bawinanga Aboriginal Corporation uses Calxa to provide the Board with relevant financial information much faster than previous methods used. This frees up my and their time to focus on new projects.

Calxa has saved my finance staff so much time with regards to creating budgets and reports. The deadlines from funding organisations or external authorities such as ORIC and our auditors are no longer quite so daunting. Previously all budgets were kept on a spreadsheet and to create any kind of budget report we needed to export an MYOB report to Excel and create the report manually, which was both time consuming and prone to error. Using Calxa is relatively simple and self-explanatory. I am very happy with the end result; to be able to customise reports is extremely valuable. The end result is visually appealing and easy to understand for non-accountants and program managers. Calxa displays an entire program’s budget in a snapshot very nicely.

After using complex excel spreadsheets for calculating budgets and cashflow forecasts for clients, Calxa has now become our solution for doing this type of work. There is no need to worry about formulas being messed up, lines being inserted or deleted, and budgets not matching up with actual data. It is easy to use, professional looking reports and graphs are easy to create, and automatic updates make the whole process of keeping the software 'up to date' a breeze. I even use it at home to monitor out personal spending and it is a great way of easily being able to see where your bank balance may be in the future, and what you may have to do, to improve the end result.

What I love about Calxa is that it frees up my time to get things right – instead of spending my time manually transposing numbers to create my reports, I now have time to complete thorough budget reviews and what-ifs. I have time to get things right, it gives me time to do what I should be doing as an accountant. And I’ve also been impressed by the responsiveness of Calxa to my queries. The staff there have gone out of their way to help me.

What convinced me that Calxa was the solution to a lot of our problems was the fact that it made producing all types of reports simple – budgets, cashflow forecasts and board reports. Which in itself is great, but the bonus is, that in making reports so easy, Calxa also helps our organisation be more transparent
