Calxa Software has reached its $1 million target of software donated to not-for-profits and it has the company celebrating the important milestone. Calxa Software is a budgeting and cashflow forecasting software for not-for-profit organisations and small businesses.
Calxa recently reached its target with the donation to Southern Shoalhaven Meals on Wheels, a small community organisation that delivers meals and provides social services to the frail and elderly on the NSW south coast.
"When we made our pledge four years ago, we didn't realise how soon we would fulfil our target. Knowing that hundreds of organisations are making significant inroads in cutting the burden of reporting and achieving better governance is a great feeling," Calxa Software CEO, Mick Devine, said.
The donation program is managed by Connecting Up in Australia and TechSoup in New Zealand that have helped many not-for-profits getting their Technology in order.
Townsville contemporary arts centre business manager, Alan Marlowe, said Calxa has been instrumental in its help for the not-for-profit sector.
“It really makes a difference for us, and if it does for us, I know Calxa actually is helping to change the world for the better by donating the software to the many charities it goes to,” Marlowe indicated.
Devine also mentioned that with less resources available than their larger counter parts, grassroots organisations reap the productivity gains from using Calxa Software.
He also said linking directly to their underlying accounting system, organisations are looking to improve the way they work and having access to automation that replaces tedious spreadsheet tasks not only saves time, it sets the foundation for better decision making.
“These smaller organisations have the same mandatory requirements as their larger counterparts. As a small not-for-profit we welcome any assistance we can get and I really think that Calxa will make a difference to our treasurer and make it easier to meet our reporting needs,” he added.
