Case studies of how Paragon Software Solutions improved business processes in non-profit industry


Alaska Non-profit

Alaska-Based Kawerak Automates Accounting and HR with Microsoft Dynamics® GP


As a paper-based system organization, Kawerak employees would fill out a piece of paper to request office supplies, get the appropriate approval signatures and walk the paper down to accounting. Time cards were automated but not integrated into the accounting system so the information needed to be re-keyed. Much of the accounting system was paper-based.

Kawerak implemented Microsoft Dynamics® GP to automate accounting, HR and payroll functions. They also implemented eRequester®, a purchase requisition system from Paperless Business Systems and TimeForce from Qqest Software for tracking employee hours and attendance.
