Austin, TX - Dec 10, 2009 - Sage North America today announced that its Sage Fund Accounting product has received a 2010 Campbell Award from independent market research firm Campbell Rinker, based on the product being one of the most recommended by U.S. customers. Campbell Rinker surveyed approximately 3,000 customers of accounting software for nonprofits in order to determine the 2010 Campbell Award winners.
Awarded approximately every two years, the Campbell Award was established in 2002 to recognize excellence in nonprofits and the companies that serve them. This is Sage Fund Accounting’s fourth consecutive Campbell Award. In 2008, the product was the most recommended accounting solution among users from nonprofits with annual revenue of $5 million and above. In 2005, Sage Fund Accounting received the highest overall satisfaction score among all products rated in the survey, and the product received a 2003 Campbell Award for having the Best Expense Tracking capabilities of all rated products.
"Our ultimate goal is to provide our customers with an extraordinary experience," said Krista Endsley, senior vice president and general manager for Sage Nonprofit Solutions. “Sage Fund Accounting helps improve the daily lives of nonprofit accounting professionals, while also helping organizations demonstrate financial and organizational accountability.”
Several editions of Peachtree by Sage Premium Accounting for Nonprofits were also highly recommended by nonprofit customers during this year’s Campbell Rinker survey.
Conducted online by Campbell Rinker during September, the Nonprofit Accounting Solution Survey gathered information on user satisfaction, pricing preferences, purchasing habits, and organizational scope and size. Campbell Rinker thoroughly screened respondents to ensure accurate results. Thirty-nine percent of survey respondents have final purchase authority for accounting solutions, and about seven in 10 respondents report using their primary accounting solution at least once a week.
