New Journal Entry Batch Creator Excel Add-in for Financial Edge NXT

In conjunction with Microsoft, we recently announced the launch of the Journal Entry Batch Creator for Financial Edge NXT in Excel. Continuing a successful integration relationship with Microsoft, this Excel Add-in streamlines the common accounting process of making manual journal entries by allowing them to transfer data from Excel directly into their Blackbaud accounting software. Blackbaud and Microsoft’s APIs allow for a seamless integration of this Journal Entry process to the General Ledger with the Excel Add-In for Financial Edge NXT.

Nicholas Murphy, CFO of Sigma Nu Fraternity, Inc., quickly adopted the time-saving tool, appreciating that Blackbaud has invested in making Excel, an application he acknowledges as a mainstay in his team, better. With the add-in, he can convert the multiple-step process needed to get transactions from Excel into Financial Edge NXT to a simple click of a button without compromising security (authentication is still required) or accuracy (validation is built-in).

Financial Edge NXT is currently the only nonprofit financial management solution that offers the direct transfer of journal entries through Excel with ease. The Add-in auto-populates organization-specific fields and values and includes immediate feedback on any invalid entries directly in the Excel spreadsheet. Once submitted, the journal entry is created in Financial Edge NXT as a batch awaiting approval and posting.

Customers can anticipate additional integration tools with Excel and Financial Edge NXT to continue streamlining their data entry processes in the future.
