Nonprofit Leading Practices

With over 2,000 successful implementations, NetSuite has a deep understanding of nonprofit organizations across the sector and the many challenges they face. As the pace of change accelerates, nonprofits are struggling to keep up—especially for those still relying on outdated system infrastructure. As nonprofits strive to improve operational performance and surpass constituent expectations in an increasingly competitive environment, they are struggling with:

  • Manual data entry and processes.
  • Reporting metrics based on unreliable data
  • Divided global operations.
  • Lack of constituent insight.
  • Limited cash visibility.
  • Ineffective grant and resource tracking.

A Proven Path to Success for Nonprofits

NetSuite delivers a unified and phased pathway for our customers to succeed and scale their organization. Here is how it works:

  • The first step is all about making sure nonprofits have full, real-time visibility of their financial data.
    NetSuite does this through ensuring automated close and real-time consolidation, clear reporting on grants and funds, and role-based interfaces, KPIs and dashboards. NetSuite has seen customers improve gross margins 1%-5%.
  • Once there, nonprofits are in a better position to consolidate their disparate systems through seamless global operations and a full view of their constituent activity. This phase also includes financial planning and analysis, accounts receivable detail and fund accounting.
  • From there, they are freed from the constraints of their legacy systems and are ready to tackle challenges such as improving the constituent experience, conducting unified billing and preventing revenue leakage to truly enhance operations.
  • Ultimately, the focus turns to more disruptive strategies such as developing new business models and building impactful relationships through connecting dollars to outcomes. NetSuite has seen its customers improve their actionable insights by over 56%.
