Capital Business Solutions has been working with Episcopal Church in Minnesota, of Minneapolis, MN as a new Financial Edge NXT Client.
Working with Jennifer Gamberg, Missioner of Finance plus other staff, CBS helped implement the Financial Edge NXT software transitioning away from their legacy Great Plains system. The Organization moved to a 12 user system with modules including Accounts Receivable with EFT, Accounting Forms, Cash Receipts, Purchase Orders, Budget Management, Advanced Security, Cash Management, General Ledger, Project-Grant-Endowments and Accounts Payable with EFT and Allocation Management. After the successful implementation some additional work was done on their Visual Chart Organizer and some new reports.
