I used this program as an intern at a small nonprofit. It was easy to understand, and if I had any questions, customer service was extremely helpful. I love having this sort of help for doing fundraising for important events that primarily funded our organization. The program was clear and concise with great functionality.
Take advantage of customer service! They are excellent
Lexie from American Digital systems
Both were very helpful. The best part is they give an amazon gift card just for reviewing there product.
It could be easier to use. Was a little confusing the first few times around. This product fits my needs as of now. I haven't come across anything that I didn't like yet besides the fact it could be a little more user friendly the first time around.
Very good product. Evaluate it because if you do they will give a free amazon gift card. This vendor helps you find the exact product you need for your business. They also give you a free quote in helping you find one that does exactly what you need with added features you didn't think of in the beginning. Very useful product in making the business more successful.

It works seamlessly with what I need. Does exactly what I want it to and more. I don't know I've gotten by in the past with out using this product for the business.
I have not found anything I don't like about it. Both the product and the vendor are and were very helpful in fulling my needs. Definitely the best place to get accounting software. Would recommend to a friend.
A little confusing on first time use. Very valuable software once I figured it out. Was very easy to figure things out on the second time using it.

Very customizable. Love the indirect allocation features
Not enough set up in the way of select pre made /formated options. not enough sort optons flexability.
make sure youve scheduled in alot of time to build your reporting and processing needs.
Tonia from MDI Consulting
Great technical support. They take responsibility for every issue presented to them and don't stop until the issue is resolved.
The software in the last upgrade provides almost as much functionality as MIP/Abila with a much more logical user interface. Users can easily create their own report formats.
The Pro-writer provides an organization the ability to fully customize their account structure.
It does not yet have a Spanish language version even though it has robust multi-currency functionality.
You can download a full working version of the software.
Jinhong from Jinhong Zhang CPA
Fund E-Z is very simple and easy to use. It has all the functions needed to do the job and no more extras to confuse you. It is very affordable.
The product is still desktop. In today's world, we need cloud based applications. I will they will make it cloud based soon.
If you are looking for clound based solfware, use Quickbooks online. If you are looking for a desktop version, Fund EZ is a good choice.
Leonard from Bencivenga Ward & Company
The product allows you to full customize your chart of account as well as reports. They have an advance report module which allows for additional customization. The vendor is extremely responsive in regards to queries and continues to support and improve the product with new revisions and updated versions constantly.
The switch from version 9 to 10 was drastic with a lot of improvements, but the structure changed to an SQL based software and for users who are used to enter data and scrolling with a mouse there are some drawbacks. Example, if you are in a journal entry and are looking to scroll down and use your mouse, and happen to be on a debit or credit field, it scrolls through the numbers vs. moving the screen, you have to get used to using the side arrows which after two years we still struggle with it. Not a reason to not consider but something you need to be aware of .
Demo the software, look at the functionality and if it checks off enough boxes consider it. It is a full AP, AR, GL system, with the ability to add Fundraising and other modules. It is a high functioning product at reasonable cost.
Allison from Unity of Purose Sa

The after market support. My department has confidence in the company that in the event of issues we can immediately contact someone in support to work with us on the technical problems. We are also very happy with the fast turnaround response time either for employees to return our communication or complete work.
Critical information from some workers may differ sometimes. Steep learning curve on product. Expensive.
Try it in your company for a while before deciding not to use it.
Linda from Chicago Foundation for Women
Specialty: Philanthropic Foundations
Fund E-Z offers an account structure that allows for entering transactions by fund (unrestricted, temporarily restricted, or permanently restricted revenue), by account number (eg. cash, accounts payable, individual donations, salary expense, etc), then drilldown by cost center 1 (programs), cost center 2 (activity within a program) and cost center 3 (funder) - or variations of this setup.
When Fund E-Z updated to version 10, a lot of keystrokes were no longer applicable, making data entry much more time-consuming. Also, it is not easy to update to subsequent versions.
Compare costs of other products, and try it out to see if the account structure works for you.
Sabrina from Student Achievement Partners, Inc.
Specialty: Higher Education
We love that we have many options to be able to filter different data and the ability to export in a variety of formats. Technical support has been useful so far on any questions we have had.
It would be great if more filter options and fields were available to be included in reports, as would the ability to compare budget vs actuals each quarter with reprojections.
I would recommend this software to other small-to-midsize NPOs that are looking a one-time payment for software that has the option to be able to track by grants and projects and sub-grants/sub-projects, in addition to being able to slice and dice reports in many different ways. It's a great investment and a huge alternative to Quickbooks, yet it meets the budgeting of accounting software when compared with other companies.
