MartusTools overview

What is MartusTools?

MartusTools is a cloud-based budgeting and accounting solution designed to help churches streamline their budgeting and accounting processes with online dashboards, scorecards, statistics, and financial reports like departmental account views, dimensional view summaries, and forecast views. MartusTools enables users to manage their accounting data effectively by integrating with most popular accounting systems, including QuickBooks, Shelby, ACS, Financial Edge, and more.

MartusTools is comprised of two tools; Martus Planner and MartusDashboard. MartusPlanner provides users with quick and central access to budgeting tools which help monitor budgeting progress minute by minute or identify any budget problems or inconsistencies. Users can manage and record budget requests using monthly line-item notes. The MartusDashboard allows users to view comparison reports and graphs on budgets and actuals. Users can drill down into reports to gain greater insight into their budgets and accounts, as well as identify trends using the MartusTools statistical tracking system. MartusTools creates budget worksheets automatically and allows users to check a budget's approval status from the planner worksheet. The planner summary gives users an instant snapshot into their budget. Dashboards support monthly expense comparisons, income vs expense comparisons and top ten expense accounts.

Martus Solutions is a great tool for budgeting

Pros
User friendly for most non-financial users. You can narrow your search by locations, departments, activities, funds and for Non-Profits is a very useful tool for anyone in the organization. The owner, Bill Cox is a very helpful person and is always looking for ways to improve the software. For non-financial users, the dashboards are very helpful.

Cons
There is no really anything that I don't like about this software. I will be using it to roll out our 2019 budget and we expect it will be a win for all users. I understand that no software is perfect. No matter what it is, there is going to be at least one tool that isn't up to par or a missing functionality. But I think that Martus Tools have been making improvements to the software.

Pros
Using MartusPlanner was straightforward for our leaders to learn and we completed our budget without any problems. Here are a few highlights of how Martus Planner has enhanced our budget process: - This system allows our ministry leaders to input, update, review, and reference their budgets on demand from anywhere they can get internet access. Gone are the days of multiple spreadsheets with multiple formats and versions. - Equip your ministry leaders with the ability to track and manage their budgets. One of our newly hired senior leaders told me I worked for a church with over 5,000 attendees across 6 sites and this program would have been a game changer for the way that church operated. - Keep track of all budget versions throughout the budget cycle. Remember that awesome idea that was cut from the Dream budget. Now you can go back to that dream budget and bring that idea to life.

Cons
Based on feedback I have received from the ministry teams at my Church, the user interface could be simplified to help them navigate the program.

Martus has helped us communicate financials much more quickly and efficiently

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
Accessible through the web and integrates with our users current sign on credentials. It allows us to be fully paperless when communicating our financial reporting and during budgeting process. It also allows us to quickly send out financials with a notification email that I trigger once entries are updated each month. It also seamlessly connects to our accounting software for continual updates on income and expenses without having to export and import manually.

Cons
Currently there isn't a mobile platform for accessing budget or financial reporting. You can view the webpage on your mobile device, but it isn't easy.

Martus provides third party integration for budget management that our accounting software lacks.

Review Source: Capterra

Our accounting software, Intacct, does not offer budget managements for easy budget modifications, audit trail reports, or other budget related activity. Martus provides this functionality with ease and has been very supportive to meet our unique demands as a tribal government entity.

Pros
The software is easy to use and provides a simple interface to submit modifications or new budgets for our grant programs.

Cons
There is a limited number of permissions you can setup. In that I cannot grant a user to be able to view budget mods that are pertinent to their program but were submitted by other users. Editing worksheets to develop a working budget for future periods is easy, however you cannot mass delete lines and you have to export and then import the budgets to make them active.
