Role-Based Dashboards: Streamlining Nonprofit Oversight, Management, and Grant Funding

Nonprofit organizations juggle multiple tasks, encompassing financial transparency, regulatory compliance, vigilant tracking of program outcomes, and the continual endeavor to meet stakeholder expectations.


But in the complex world of nonprofit management, one of the most significant challenges lies in effectively overseeing operations and optimizing grant funding. But how do you ensure meticulous tracking, reporting, and compliance with funder provisions? Navigating these multifaceted responsibilities requires tools that can simplify tasks while enhancing efficiency.


Enter role-based dashboards, a transformative feature in Sage Intacct’s financial management software specifically designed to mitigate these nonprofit challenges.


What are role-based dashboards, particularly those offered by Sage Intacct, and how can they streamline nonprofit oversight, management, and grant funding, ultimately empowering organizations to achieve their mission more effectively?


More Efficient Oversight, Management, and More Grant Funding

Nonprofit organizations operate in a unique environment characterized by specific challenges and constraints through a mission-oriented focus that requires them to balance efficiency in operations with a commitment to transparency and stewardship.


With more efficient oversight and management, you get better decision-making, ensure regulatory compliance, and foster stakeholder trust.


Equally significant is the role of grant funding, and as the primary source of income for many nonprofits, grants require careful management.


Successful grant funding is not just about securing funds; it’s also about accurately tracking each dollar spent, consistently reporting to funders, and ensuring compliance with grant conditions. Mismanagement of grants leads to financial discrepancies, damaged relationships with funders, and potential legal issues.


But at the intersection of efficient oversight, effective management, and successful grant funding is where nonprofits can truly thrive. They can focus on their core mission, whether it’s serving communities, advocating for change, or providing essential services.


That’s why tools that streamline these processes, like role-based dashboards in Sage Intacct, are not just beneficial but essential for modern nonprofits.


By leveraging such tools, nonprofits can navigate the complexities of their operations and make their mission-driven work more impactful.


Understanding Role-Based Dashboards

Role-based dashboards are a powerful feature of any financial management system designed to provide a personalized, consolidated view of crucial data based on a user’s role within an organization. These dashboards gather important reports, metrics, Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), and approval statuses into one location, providing each user with a tailored snapshot of the information most relevant to their role.


Sage Intacct’s role-based dashboards can be customized to include real-time financial data, grant management information, operational metrics, and more for flexibility that allows for creating dashboards for various roles in a nonprofit organization, from executive leadership and financial managers to grant managers and program coordinators.



Each dashboard is a dynamic, visual, and interactive tool allowing users to dive into details, spot trends, and make informed decisions. Grant managers get a dashboard showing real-time budget-to-actuals for each program or grant, upcoming reporting deadlines, and compliance alerts. This level of customization ensures that each user sees what they need when they need it, increasing efficiency and reducing the time spent navigating through irrelevant information.
