What Do Nonprofits Seek in Business Management Software?

What Do Nonprofits Seek in Business Management Software?

Nonprofit Software AdviceWhat do nonprofits want from accounting software? Many features exist in nonprofit accounting that differ from the needs of any other firm. This is why each year, Software Advice surveys thousands of nonprofit decision makers to learn where they stand in selection, needs, and criteria for accounting software.

Nonprofit BuyerView 2014

The survey results included in the Nonprofit BuyerView 2014 study feature the insight of 2,300 decision makers, providing unparalleled insight into the nonprofit software buying market.

Why are nonprofits seeking new software? What would they like to see in their software? The key findings, thanks to Software Advice (Nonprofits), are that:

  • 51 percent of nonprofits seek improved efficiency.
  • 49 percent of buyers currently use manual recordkeeping methods, such as spreadsheets, pen and paper and QuickBooks to track data.
  • Nearly half of respondents prefer cloud-based deployment, and only 2% would choose an on-premise solution.
  • More than half would choose best-in-class software over that of an integrated suite.
  • Almost four out of five (79 percent) of nonprofits evaluating software seek a fundraising management solution.
  • Human Services, Faith-Based, and Arts/Cultural segments feature the most active buyers.
