Hackney CVS promotes and supports the development of the voluntary and community sector in Hackney. The organisation has recently reviewed its accounting software in the light of expanding its services. The accounts team are currently using Quickbooks Premier 2008, but feel it has some limitations when it comes to spreadsheet reporting and user permissions.

“When we researched financial management solutions, IRIS Exchequer ( stood out from the crowd with its well-designed features – especially its project reporting,” comments Manish Panjabi. “We are looking to streamline and automate our finance processes and build closer relationships with our stakeholders. IRIS Exchequer can help us realise these goals by enabling us to utilise our resources more efficiently in the future.”

When Hackney CVS goes live with IRIS Exchequer V6 next month, it intends to equip project teams with on demand access to detailed financial information without wasting time and resources in collating and sifting through the data.
