Lookup options are also plentiful throughout. The core AccuFund Accounting Suite consists of GL, Financial Report Writer, AP, Cash Receipting, Bank Reconciliation, System Security, User Security, Form Designer, Data Imports and Exports, Accounts Table-based or flat, and Document and Image Scanning. Additional modules include AR/Inventory, Allocations, Fixed Assets, Human Resources, Payroll, Purchasing/Inventory, Requisition Management, Budget Management, and Grants Management. AccuFund is available in both Standard and Professional Editions, offering organizations the ability to expand to a more robust version when needed.
