On 28 January we were happy to welcome a range of charities and not-for-profit organisations to our specialist Sage seminar held at our offices in Dalston.
Along with our guests we welcomed Ben Huston, a representative from Sage who, using his Sage expertise, led the seminar explaining and demonstrating all of the built-in functions that Sage 50 offers specifically for charities and not-for-profit organisations.
Ben’s demonstration included setting up funds, linking customers and suppliers to funds, specifying donors and members, setting up the chart of accounts, allocating nominal codes to Statement of Financial Activities (SOFA) categories and gift aid capabilities. Our guests were particularly interested in the various reports that Sage can produce for charities so we spent some time during the presentation looking at these giving people the time to understand them fully.
At David Allen we understand the challenges that charities and not-for-profit organisations face and we offer effective planning, inspirational ideas and practical support to help ensure their development and success through not just their accounts, but through business software too.
Our seminar was bespoke and interactive meaning that our guests were not just able to learn about the different benefits and functions Sage has for them, but they could also see the functions in action allowing them to make the most of their software.
With people having travelled from as far as Lancaster to attend I was pleased to hear that everyone who attended really got something out of the seminar. As always I am here to help anyone develop their Sage skills so that they are able to get the most for their business from their software now and in the future.
