About Cambodian Children's Fund

Founded in 2004, Cambodian Children’s Fund is a non-profit that provides life-changing education, nourishment and healing to vulnerable children from some of Cambodia’s most destitute communities. Cambodian Children’s Fund cares for more than 2,000 students and 10,000 people annually, providing to entire families and communities in crisis. For the children of the Steung Meanchey area of Phnom Penh, education is their lifeline out of poverty and Cambodian Children’s Fund offers an award-winning education aimed at providing hope, opportunity and security.

Challenges

Cambodian Children’s Fund was outgrowing its existing financial software. They were always running three weeks behind on their financials and this led to wasted resources and poor reporting/metrics. Cambodian Children’s Fund needed a cloud-based accounting solution that could:

  • Manage their projected growth
  • Reduce their dependency on Excel spreadsheets
  • Provide complete transparency to their donors
  • Deliver up-to-date custom reports and dashboards
  • Support users in both Cambodia and the United States

Delivering up-to-date custom reports to Cambodian Children’s Fund’s donors was the main driving force behind the search for a new accounting software system.

Solution

Cambodian Children’s Fund chose AcctTwo to implement Sage Intacct, a cloud-based accounting software solution. Sage Intacct enables them to significantly improve accounting processes (no more tedious Excel spreadsheets) and deliver complete transparency to their donors.

Results

Financial transparency is a common concern for many non-profits. In addition, many stakeholders and funders have different reporting criteria and custom reports have to be constructed. Sage Intacct’s Dimensions feature met the reporting requirements for Cambodian Children’s Fund’s different stakeholders and provide complete transparency across the organization. Since Cambodia’s Children Fund’s implementation, they have:

  • Improved the monthly reporting cycle to provide timely reports within days of the month-end
  • Simplified and streamlined key accounting processes
  • Improved overall efficiencies because transactions are now done online with up-to-date data
  • Increased competence of accounting transparency and ability to track spending
  • Managed spend better to stay in line with income

Sage Intacct allows Cambodian Children’s Fund the transparency they need and the opportunity to grow their organization without worry that they’ll outgrow their accounting solution.

Note: This case study was originally posted as Leap the Pond, Leap the Pond was acquired by AcctTwo in December 2018.

“During the sales process, the AcctTwo team promised that Sage Intacct would deliver complete transparency to our donors and flexible financial reporting and analysis using their Dimensions feature. After implementation and running our financials in Sage Intacct, AcctTwo delivered on all their promises.”
