WINPACCS accounting – the world's leading project accounting software for development cooperation
For over 30 years, the application has been employed in numerous projects simplifying the entry of project accounting data on location. It allows lesser qualified accountants in development organisations to perform project accounting in accordance with the generally accepted accounting principles.
Last year the application was completely redeveloped and updated in terms of technology and usability.
Project accounting is at the core of financial administration in aid organisations.
It processes a high proportion of a project's vouchers, while ensuring they are entered correctly on site. Postings are directly assigned to fundings and budget lines in the project accounting – an important function, given that this information is essential for controlling and for invoicing in respect to donors.
Further key tasks in project accounting in development organisations are the administration of receivables and payables, as well as receipt and transferral of funds in the field.
Project accounting systems are specially designed to meet the requirements of development cooperation and humanitarian aid projects.
For many organisations, performing work in keeping with the generally accepted accounting principles is of high relevance and is frequently demanded by donors.
It is also important to be able to enter all the business transactions with preconfigured posting masks. This enables data to be rapidly and comfortably entered and reduces the number of mistakes.
As not every location has an Internet connection, project accounting needs to be usable offline.
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.
The Project accountant user role allows you to utilise the project accounting function.
