For instance, in 2008, one of our ministries in South America was broken into and all the office computers were stolen. There were no reliable backups of their financial data. It took three weeks to piece their accounting system back together!
There are so many things that can take out a computer system: theft, floods, fires, disgruntled employees, Windows updates, and the pervasive red dust in Mali! And, sadly, all of these things have happened to a local CCC ministry somewhere in the world within the past few years.
When these critical financial systems are stolen or not working, it doesn’t just hurt just the accountants. It hurts the entire ministry.
Thankfully, things are changing. Through a special partnership between the financial and technology teams at Campus Crusade for Christ’s world headquarters, a web-based system called “Financial ConneXion” was developed to address these needs. Troy has been part of this partnership by helping to ensure his donation processing software runs well on this new platform, and has consulted them on other technology issues related to the project.
