Women’s World Banking switches to Intacct for sophisticated grant management and fund accounting.

Moving from Blackbaud Financial Edge to Intacct has helped Women’s World Banking increase the efficiency of important financial processes and improve transparency into key metrics. To date, the global nonprofit has cut its accounts payables time by two thirds, reduced data entry by 14 hours per month, and gained visibility into its spending across multiple entities, grants, donors and projects.

Cash is king in our world, and with Intacct’s outstanding ability to handle our grant management needs, we now have a real-time view of all our assets and what’s driving our revenues—which wasn’t possible with the cumbersome Excel-based process we used before.
