So, as a SACCO financial manager or someone working within the department, these are some of the advantages of CoopMIS.




CoopMIS is well-known for the ease with which reports may be generated.

As the Finance Manager, you must generate budgetary reports and distribute them to the SACCO CEO and relevant board members.

The budgeting module lets you quickly prepare and share the yearly or quarterly budget with the appropriate teams.


Improved Decision Making

You are highly dependent on your position in your SACCO regarding financial decisions.

This is a time consuming and challenging exercise that requires a great deal of concentration.
