Capital Business Solutions recently helped Southwest School of Art, of San Antonio, TX with their Financial Edge software.
Working with Teresa Rodriguez, Director of Information Systems, CBS provided a System Assessment of their Financial Edge software including a review of the setup and configuration of the database, general ledger account structure, use of projects-grants-endowments, reporting, accounts payable, accounts receivable, potential impacts of any Chart of Accounts changes to Admissions Office, Registrar’s Office and Raiser’s Edge. In addition of the database review, CBS learned about all the business processes at the school, workflow tasks and responsibilities, training needs for Financial Edge users, reporting needs including the adoption of NACUBO standards and other specialized formats.
After the assessment, a detailed findings report was prepared with action items recommended to meet future goals, an outline of potential changes to the Chart of Accounts, and a course of action and timelines needed.
