General Ledger

Don’t get stuck with a financial solution just because it comes “bundled” with a student information system. Let the flexibility of EMPOWER build a “best-of-breed” integrated solution that best meets your needs.

EMPOWER’s Billing & Receivables module manages all debit/credit transactions that pertain to students such as tuition, fees, financial aid awards, third-party payments, and general billing matters. All journal entries associated with these transactions can be electronically passed to the general ledger package of your choice. This integration between EMPOWER and your financial system gives you the best of both worlds—a student information system that focuses on managing student data and a general ledger system that meets your accounting practices.

There are a wide variety of financial systems with which EMPOWER currently interfaces, such as:

  • Abila (Sage) MIP Fund Accounting
  • ACS General Ledger
  • Cougar Mountain
  • FinancialEdge (Blackbaud)
  • Fundware
  • Lawson
  • Microsoft Dynamics GP (Great Plains)
  • Microsoft Dynamics SL
  • OpenPlus
  • Peachtree
  • QuickBooks Pro
  • Sage Accpac
  • Sage Intacct
  • Shelby Systems
  • Workday Financial Management
  • Others by request

If you don’t see your financial system on the list, EMPOWER will build a custom interface as part of the implementation agreement.
