Installing our on-campus fund accounting software helps to make your nonprofit’s operations more efficient.

What is on-premise accounting software?
Accounting software has two possible deployments:
Cloud-based fund accounting:
Cloud services store your software on third-party servers instead of on your devices. This option usually entails paying a monthly subscription fee. Cloud storage also involves outsourcing some of your IT or support team’s responsibilities.
When your organization purchases in-house accounting software, you buy the program and install it on your organization’s devices. You’ll need a full IT staff to maintain an on-premise accounting system. Your IT staff will also handle the upgrading of the software and provide support for any user issues. Both deployments have their unique advantages. Your organization’s needs can help you determine whether you’ll receive the most value from setting up your accounting system in the cloud or on-campus.Cloud services store your software on third-party servers instead of on your devices.

What Types of Organizations Should Use On-Premise?
If you have an in-house or contracted IT staff, on-premise accounting software may be the best choice for your organization. You need to ensure you have the technical resources to support the hardware requirements of the accounting solution you choose.
Nonprofit organizations that keep their accounting solutions on-site often have other shared characteristics:
If you are investigating a cloud-based or hosted solution carefully consider the security protocols to which you must adhere up front. While many compliance standards are technically possible in the cloud, they may cost more time and money.
Your organization may have stringent IT policies. In that case, you might need to keep your software in-house to comply with those rules.
Monthly subscriptions are ideal for some nonprofits. If your budget is better suited for one initial payment, installing and maintaining the software on your own servers may be the best option.
When you store your accounting software on your own servers, your organization can tailor its functions to your needs. MIP’s accounting solutions are scalable, so you can apply them to a range of tasks.
As long as your IT staff is local, they can provide individualized support from within your organization.
Organizations with on-premise fund accounting have more control over their software solutions. Your support staff makes necessary upgrades and performs maintenance that keeps your system up to date.
