Powerful cloud accounting software for smaller organisations implemented with systems accountants
If your organisation has an income of £1-5 million/annum but are being held back by spreadsheets and manual processes, look no further.
NetSuite and Cloud Doing Good provide a simple to implement and affordable solution for smaller charities that have outgrown their legacy finance system but don't require a complex and expensive custom built finance system.
Our expert systems accountants are with you from initial conversations, through implementation to first month end and beyond. Working with you to ensure the system and your finance data is structured to meet your organisation’s needs.
And as you grow, so does NetSuite.
There are two costs:
NetSuite is a popular accounting system, enjoyed by over a million users. Smaller organisations benefit from it being a cost effective, easy to use and infinitely scalable solution. Also they get exactly the same core software as large charities, with deep discounts combining with all the benefits of a 1 million user system.
NetSuite employs a single source of truth model to data architecture, where all your financial data, such as chart of accounts, is stored in the cloud and is instantly accessible by those with the right permissions.
Professional services automation, secure data handling and even CRM are all extensions of the system, which you can utilise when you are ready.
For organisations that have complex needs, especially small charities and social enterprises, having a solution which can be used before, during and after rapid growth is difficult to find. One of NetSuite’s largest advantages over its competitors is its scalability. As the volume of transactions increases and financial needs become more complex, the software can comfortably support an increasing load. NetSuite allows modules and Suite Apps to be added and modified as an organisation’s needs changes. You pay for the modules you need, and
For smaller charities, an implementation can take as little as 20 days. This speed comes from our “adopt not adapt” approach. We are not building a new finance system but are just moving your data onto a new cloud-based system. However, as systems accountants, we also know that the data in charities is always different. And we don’t scrimp on time or effort on getting the data right. And particularly if the charity is using the new finance software to change the chart of accounts, there should be time allowed for training, testing of new data structure etc.
Cloud Based Accessibility
New IT systems can be daunting prospects. With some requiring complex, on site care, a team of dedicated engineers and custom-built software, it is no surprise that many organisations eschew systems upgrades. With a cloud solution like NetSuite, all physical infrastructure, software updates and security are handled by Oracle, reducing the cost and risk to your organisation.

Can't recommend Oracle Netsuite and the amazing team at Cloud Doing Good enough. They really know how to support your charity to move forward. With the help of Cloud Doing Good, we understood where we are and it helped us grow. It's not just what we think, we see the system and understand what we have to do.
Even though many large organisations use NetSuite, the system is flexible and modular so smaller organisations can also leverage. This is also reflected in price, where smaller organisations are typically charged less than multination conglomerates.
If you are growing rapidly and are tired of spreadsheets, NetSuite would be a safe bet. Talk to our team today to find out more.
With careful planning and an effective implementation team, it should be nothing to fret about. More details about Cloud Doing Good’s implementation approach can be found on our page, alternatively you can read out guide about the process.
For smaller organisations, margins are often tighter and systems upgrades carry financial risk. NetSuite license costs depend on your organisation’s size, and labour time costs are affected by its complexity. Charities may also be eligible for discounts.
