Nonprofit Agency Centralizes Accounting, Frees Resources for Peacemaking
Search for Common Ground is a nonprofit organization focused on bringing cooperative solutions to areas of conflict. The organization has 400 employees and is headquartered in Washington, D.C., and Brussels, Belgium. To manage finances and multicurrency cash flow from 50 cash accounts to field offices, the organization relied on different systems and countless spreadsheets. As a result, the company lacked insight into spending. To streamline accounting, the organization teamed with Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Raffa P.C. and deployed Microsoft Dynamics GP. To make the solution accessible worldwide, the organization uses Business Portal for Microsoft Dynamics GP and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. With these solutions in place, the organization has improved collaboration, increased accountability, and continued its mission of peace with confidence.
