How Room to Read improved financial efficiency by 80% and helped 100,000+ children worldwide as a result


Room to Read knew they could do more good for the world if they had more time to give. Yet finance and staff were both hindered by an inefficient expense and time tracking process. Like many nonprofits have done, this San Francisco-based organization put technology to work so they could get back to their mission.

Emburse Solution

Room to Read selected Nexonia because of its strong reputation with the Intacct community, its economic value, its custom reporting features, and its user-friendly mobile capabilities. Users were eager to move away from manual processes and embraced Nexonia Timesheets and Nexonia Expenses.

"Our manual, Excel-based process was simply not scalable. We were always behind schedule on our close dates and had to constantly chase people for receipts."
