Happy Customers

We take pride in building the software nonprofits need to easily manage their organization. Folks find Aplos user-friendly and simple, earning us a 97% customer satisfaction rate!

Made for Small Businesses

QuickBooks is a great software for small BUSINESSES. But when it comes to nonprofits, it lacks basic features such as fund accounting or donations tracking.

Assembly Required

There is a reason why there are textbooks written about how to use QuickBooks for a nonprofit. QuickBooks requires careful set-up, work arounds and extra steps to make it work.

Sketchy Support

QuickBooks Online does offer support, but PC Mag called QuickBooks Online support "sketchy."

Unhappy Customers

One glance at the QuickBooks forums and you will see exactly why nonprofits are having a hard time using QuickBooks Online and looking for a better solution.

See why more than 40,000 organizations chose Aplos last year.

Tidelands Church Review of Aplos

A wonderful transition from QB. Aplos fund accounting structure helped us organize our accounting in much better consistency and compliance with non-profit standards. QuickBooks forces your to twist and turn their product to fit with non-profit practices. Having online access by multiple "seats" is a big step forward in efficiency. Aplos support staff have been over-the-top and better-than-expected helpful, from initial import or data to addressing specific features we wanted.

I Challenge Diabetes Review of Aplos

Aplos Fund Accounting is a great tool for accounting, it might not be as well known as Quickbooks it packs a lot under its hood. It offers the tools that I was looking for, cloud based, multiple collaborators and even donor information.
