Grail Movement is a non-profitable organization, housing other groups, like the flower group, labour group, and catering group.

This accounting software attained some degree of flexibility. It is intended to track all source of revenue (i.e. money coming in) and liabilities (i.e. expenditures). It is a user-friendly accounting package, which manages the daily accounting operations and provides for the security of the information in the system, input data validation and restricts access to some vital management information.
