Sage Introduces Cloud-Based Nonprofit Accounting Suite

Sage North America has launched the Sage Nonprofit Online, delivering hosted online access to a bundle of nonprofit solutions. The suite brings together the Sage 100 Fund Accounting (formerly Sage MIP Fund Accounting), Sage Fundraising 50, Sage Fundraising Online and Sage Grant Management applications into a single log-in, online suite that is available by subscription.

The bundled online solution, which allows anytime/anywhere remote access, enables users to stay current with the latest updates and reduces duplicate data entry with integration between the systems.

The subscription pricing model reduces initial investment costs and simplifies budgeting, while the cloud-based nature removes IT management costs and burdens. The new pricing option allows nonprofits to pay only a single price per user per month for Sage Nonprofit Online, which includes automatic upgrades and tax updates, hosting fees, maintenance and support. The cloud-based solution for managing financials, grants, online fundraising and CRM starts at $349 per month. Subscription pricing will also be available for other Sage nonprofit solutions, including Sage Millennium, a web-based solution designed for complex fundraising programs.

"Sage Nonprofit Online gives nonprofits the choice and flexibility they want from a provider they trust at a great price point," said Krista Endsley, senior vice president and general manager of Sage Nonprofit Solutions. "With just one monthly payment and no up-front or yearly costs, it's an easy and affordable way for organizations to get more software for less."

In speaking with CPA Practice Advisor, Endsley further noted that the system has been especially popular with organizations that receive and manage grants, have diversified income or require other methods of fund accounting. This includes entities in higher education, healthcare, animal welfare, tribal and local governments.

Sage provides users with a variety of options to fulfill their organization's specific needs. Users can select just one solution or the entire nonprofit suite. Sage offers a full range of software delivery and payment options on the entire suite of nonprofit and government products.
