User Reviews of CenterPoint Fund Accounting for Nonprofits

Submitted on April 3rd, 2023 by Bryan Johnson

We run an agricultural business with 150 employees. We run accounts payable, accounts receivable, full detail inventory, payroll and track 8 profit centers. We ach all payroll checks to employees and provide employees with payroll portal so they can see their paystubs. We ach as many vendors as we can and are able to attach invoices, receipts and many other documents to the transactions to maintain paperless operation. All information is instantly up to date. No “posting”. We have many users and are able to use security features to give each user just what they need. And if I have an issue, their customer service is always professional and knowledgable.

The Good…

Very clean layout. Super customer service with someone you can understand. Always trying to upgrade and improve product. We have been able to scale easily with the software. Extensive paperless options across the system. Tons of online training if needed. Great Value.

The Bad…

Reports are pretty easy to customize to a certain level but scrolling on screen is a little funny on “interactive” view. They dont have much info out on their “api” to connect to other data sources.

Our banker asked us to switch to it because Quikbooks doesn’t have the depth of info available. It’s a top analytic program for agriculture.

The Good…

Great support. Very detailed and specific farm info available.

The Bad…

It’s big and complicated. Took me a long time to learn what I needed to know.

Has a lot of helpful things to use but difficult to remember how you do some of these things you only use once in a while.

The software works great and is very user friendly.

The Good…

I like the ability to have as detailed of information as you need from reports. If the data is being inputted than it can be retrieved.

The Bad…

I would like the ability to lock a period from new transactions but allow journal entry as an option.

I’m happy we upgraded our accounting and payroll system to CenterPoint. The reports are easy to customize and are so user-friendly. The drill-down features give us access to the info we need and make it easy to manage our fund accounts.

We also chose to integrate CenterPoint Payroll into the system. It really streamlines pay entry processes. We have been able to simplify our pay processes even further by adding direct deposit features, reducing our time spent and costs from printing checks.
