A grant management software designed by Northern Lights Software.
Tracks, analyzes, reconciles and reports transactions that are charged to one or more funding sources. It can also keep track of separate cost centers and inventories, print P.O. forms, help users create their own reports, limit users’ access to only certain accounts, and much more. Grant Manager can read data from external sources, such as other databases (e.g., Oracle, SQL Server", Access", etc.)
Grant Manager also reads salary data from Personnel Manager", so that users can keep all salary, equipment, overhead and other expenses and income under ‘one roof’ for overall record keeping, accurate reporting and comprehensive analysis. The Grant Manager fund accounting system is mostly used as a shadow system to keep departmental accounting up-to-date and accurate at all times. It is also used to ensure that main institution and department level accounting, including overhead and fringe calculations, is accurate, verified and synchronized on both sides.
We can provide free, web based demonstration of the system, as well as free initial training to help users configure the system properly and become efficient with it as quickly as possible.
The Personnel Manager program compliments Grant Manager by allowing variable and fixed personnel costs to be included in the grant tracking process. By allocating personnel costs for the entire budget period, researchers and administrators can get very accurate figures on salary expenses, and run cost analysis and what-if scenarios on various staffing options.
With Personnel Manager, you can track salaried and hourly people’s salaries and fringe benefits with unprecedented ease. You only need to enter information when salary amounts, fringe benefit rates or funding allocations change. The program generates clear and easy-to-read reports that show detailed information on each employee’s salary costs, and salary expenditures on each grant.
You can easily encumber funds for a person’s salary from multiple grants. You can change the funding allocations over time from the intuitive ‘time line’ screens. With just a few keystrokes you can add, change or delete funding sources for a person’s salary and benefits. Personnel Manager can easily handle salary and benefit calculations for hundreds of people across multiple grants with the speed and accuracy of a mainframe and the intuitive interface of Windows or Macintosh PC’s.
Now you can let Personnel Manager handle the headache inducing four-dimensional problem of people, grants, funding allocations and time. Furthermore, you can post the salary expenditures for each person’s pay dates over to Grant Manager for complete, overall record keeping and accounting of all of your grant expenditures.
Multi-user capability allows many people to work on the same database at the same time, while Personnel Manager handles record locking and other network -related issues in the background. Personnel Manager comes configured as a single user program, but with additional network licenses you can easily add as many users as necessary to the system.
