Talisma Fundraising Fund Management
Seamless integration with Microsoft Great Plains and more
Talisma Fundraising’s fund management module enhances the integration between Talisma Fundraising and Microsoft Dynamics Great Plains accounting software packages. What's more, the module includes value-added tools for analytical accounting, reporting, and a Web portal for anywhere, anytime access.
This module is especially valuable to organizations that must track funds into hundreds or thousands of designated funds, projects, or categories. Now you can:
- Dramatically shrink your chart of accounts
- Reduce thousands of general ledger accounts to a master list of fewer than twenty
- Leverage dimension codes for granularity beyond the main classification of GL account types
Set Up Business Rules
The fund management module allows you to set up business rules and specific criteria for the distribution of revenue and expenses across endowments or other funds. Talisma Fundraising software will then make the appropriate journal entries in Microsoft Dynamics Great Plains. In addition, this feature allows you to specify types of assets that should not be included for consideration in the allocation distribution.
Assign Account Managers and Enable Portal Access
With the Fund Management module, you can assign multiple account managers to all of your funds. You can also provide these managers an internal or external facing portal for accessing reports tied to the funds they manage. These reports include the fund balance and transfer statements.
The Fund Management module also allows you to produce a schedule-of-change report based on data within Talisma Fundraising that is directly related to the dimension codes within Great Plains. This report includes a comprehensive collection of metrics, including income, interest, dividends, unrealized gains/losses, other income, transfers in, transfers out, expenses, and the beginning and ending balance of each fund.
