bulletPAM allows multiple currencies, and keeps track of the conversion rates. For example donor funding is in USD, while most spending is done in local currency, and some spending is done in a neighbouring country. PAM can report in any of these currencies, converting at the daily rates.

bulletPAM can use up to five accounting schemes at the same time. The main scheme ('Series') normally indicates the type of expenditure like transport, salaries, office operation etc. Here also the bank and cash accounts find a place. The other Series can be used for example to monitor Location, Activity, or any other cost centre. PAM allows to cross tabulate the expenditures as seen in different Series.

bulletPAM keeps track of the budget, and indicates how much is spent and what is left - as amounts as well as percentages. Several reports provide analytical tools.

bulletPAM report definitions can be saved for easy re-use.

bulletPAM is very user oriented. In just a few days any member of the project team can use the program. Fast and reliable support through e-mail (also fax, telephone or slow mail).

Highly appreciated by:

  • users in the field

  • donors

Example: An educational project is financed by an International Organisation, by the National Administration, and by a local NGO. The project works in several districts. PAM can provide reports indicating how much was spent on training materials or salaries, over a particular period, per donor or by location. For the local administration you would use a local cur-rency, for the donor you would report in the donors currency.

bulletPAM reports are highly configurable. Some reports can be output as a spreadsheet that can be loaded into Excel.
