Two weeks ago we introduced the importance of utilizing technology in your church accounting processes in the first post of our “Using Technology” series. This week we are concluding our series by focusing on technology that integrates directly with Quick Books Online. These tools can help solve pain points many churches face for both efficiency and increased internal controls to help your church prevent fraudulent activity.
