  • BYOD — What’s the Fuss?

    As consumer tech continues to develop, more and more employees are using their own smartphones and tablets in the world of work, while resisting—or simply not making use of—corporate devices that their organisation has supplied.

  • Fund Accounting for Nonprofits: A Responsible, Accessible Approach

    The accounting needs of a small, local charity and a global NGO start from the same basic concept – effective stewardship of donor funds. Most nonprofits must break down income and expenditures on a program-by-program basis, which means maintaining a distinct ledger for each operating fund.

Not simply because of the prospect at the beginning and the payment at the end, although those are certainly crucial steps.
