An initial step in broadening the reach of the nonprofit software, customers now have the option to purchase an annual subscription for Aplos Accounting through Amazon.com. Users will activate their license purchased through Amazon then access the Web-based fund accounting software through Aplos Software’s website.
Historically, Aplos Software’s online nonprofit financial software was only available for purchase directly through its website.
Aplos has also unveiled Aplos Affiliates, which allows professional bookkeepers and accountants to provide Aplos fund accounting software to church and nonprofit clients.
Accompanying these developments, Aplos Software has expanded their team with the addition of Tawni Peterson as head of sales. Peterson will lead the development of the reseller program while also building strategic partnerships with professional accountants, nonprofit organizations and trade associations.
“Joining Aplos was an easy choice because Aplos’ commitment to serving the customer matches my own. I am eager to introduce the unique benefits of the software, new opportunities and scalability of Aplos within the cloud to our partners,” said Peterson. “Professional nonprofit accountants love how Aplos can broaden their service area and make their practice more efficient, but the new Aplos Affiliate program will take these relationships to the next level with increased revenue streams through reseller agreements and client referrals.”
