19 March 2012

The multi-award winning Exchequer accounting software solution has once again received 100 per cent recommendation in Charity Finance magazine’s annual ‘Accounting Software Survey’.

This year marks the third year running that Exchequer has won the coveted recommendation.  Exchequer's Charity Finance Software was one of only two suppliers to receive the 100 per cent recommendation.

Paul Sparkes, Product Director, Exchequer, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have received this recognition for a third time in a row, especially as it is voted for by our customers. We have striven to provide a software solution that is both functional and flexible and this survey highlights how our charity customers are really seeing the benefits that Exchequer brings.”

Sparkes continued: “Charities have had to heavily focus on increasing efficiencies and streamlining processes.  Exchequer accounting software offers our customers a 360° view over their finances, giving them greater transparency on how they can improve their financial management, donor engagement and operational efficiency to achieve better results.”
