Calxa’s partnership with Connecting Up is in its second year now and we are looking for 43 not-for-profits to help us reach the halfway mark on our road to $1m donations.

Do you know an organisation that would benefit from better board reports and grant acquittals? Please tell them about this donation program so they can start saving time today.

Calxa, is now the 5th largest contributor to the Connecting Up donation program, behind industry giants Microsoft, Cisco, Symantec and Adobe. Donations of our leading budgeting and reporting software, Calxa Premier, have been snapped up by a wide range of community organisations and charities.

Calxa simplifies the process of producing better board reports and grant acquittals, saving many hours (or even days) of work each month. It links directly to MYOB, QuickBooks and Xero, eliminating many of the errors experienced in spreadsheets. The extensive library of reports provides structured, yet flexible, options for organisations of all sizes. Here are some of the beneficiaries that have made Calxa work for their organisation.

The Place, Charlestown: New Community Centre

I adore Calxa and the more I use it the more I discover. Calxa allows us to produce a variety of easy to read reports that show several different factors at the same time. This makes it easy when presenting to the board and people who may not be familiar with reading financial reports“, says Lynda Little, Manager of The Place. Lynda followed a simple 5-Step Process to get up and running and producing the reports she needed for her board.

A Start in Life: long-established children’s charity

Accountant Stephen Floyd was frustrated with his complex web of spreadsheets when he discovered Calxa on the Connecting Up website. He quickly saw that it would improve his processes and that early promise has been fulfilled: “The process of preparing forecasts is now very easy. In fact the time taken to produce budgets has been reduced by 50% or more”, he says.

Calxa has brought greater flexibility to the budgeting process. The ability to develop multiple budgets as circumstances change is crucial to providing timely information to management, enabling them to respond quickly to challenges and opportunities.

Pollinators Inc: Supporting Social Entrepreneurs

Andrew Outhwaite, CEO of Pollinators, was looking for something that would work well with their cloud-based Xero accounting system to replace a complex array of spreadsheets that were becoming unwieldy and difficult to manage. Calxa provided the ideal solution as it links directly to Xero, enabling budgets for projects and funding sources. The Connecting Up donation program made the price very attractive, especially as it allowed multiple licences.
