Caritas international

Caritas international is a relief, development, and social service organisation working to build a better world, especially for children, the elderly, sick, and disabled persons.

Their key to sustained success is the competence and commitment of local Caritas staff.Caritas Germany implements up to 1.000 aid projects a year worldwide. Over the last years the annual average funds spent on projects amounted to 56 million Euro.

Since January 2008 Caritas Germany uses WINPACCS software to administer and monitor their project finances. The software is specifically designed for the requirements of international aid organisations, allowing sound accounting practice and transparent reporting of used funds.

By the push of a button the financial data is transferred to the Caritas head office in Germany and imported via an interface into the central accounting system.

The specific orientation of WINPACCS for international aid organisations and the comprehensive customizing functions made it easy for us to introduce WINPACCS into our worldwide offices. A one week "Train-the-Trainer" course at our head office in Freiburg enabled our staff to provide the necessary user training abroad and to backstop the introduction.
