Better Business Insight

Your AMS can track member activity and revenue generation, but that's only part of the picture. You need a way to match up your costs with your activities, so you can make better informed business decisions (like if you should continue funding that training program, for instance). We can help you integrate accounting software into your AMS to track costs and profitability by event, program, class, department, and any other financial criteria.

Revenue Recognition

Associations need an effective way to properly recognize annual membership dues and publication subscriptions. With the complexity of today's revenue recognition rules, this can be a challenge. Even prepaid conference fees need to be accrued. At Maner Solutions, we're accountants as well as ERP consultants, so we understand these challenges. We can help ensure that you have the systems and processes in place to address them.

Maner Solutions understands the importance of instant, real-time access to all of your financial data across all entities. That's why we implement modern, shared database ERP solutions so you can login once and have access to everything you need, including reporting and transacting. Intercompany transactions are also automatically generated.
