Helping Non-Profits Manage Payments With Signing Authorities

Plooto Reviews: Read about how Plooto has helped North Toronto Baseball Association, a sports association with over 100 teams.

North Toronto Baseball Association is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing a healthy outdoor experience for youths through baseball. With over 1200 members and 100 teams, they hold programs across North Toronto and beyond.

The Challenge

As one of the largest non-profit baseball leagues in the country, North Toronto Baseball tells us about the challenges they had in making secure and timely payments to maintain their operations. They needed to mail cheques to pay umpires monthly, as well as other contractors and equipment suppliers. All of this required multiple signing authorities to sign the cheques, and coordinating with their bookkeeper was costing a tonne of time – and time was money.

Michael Doner, Treasurer of NTBA needed a mass pay solution that could replace cheques and e-transfers, and made it easier to get approvals from signing officers.

The Results

Our board and our bookkeeper, who introduced us to Plooto, really appreciate the time saved from having to manually collect signatures and mail out cheques to umpires. We’re talking about over a hundred cheques per month! Not to mention Plooto’s mass pay function, which allows us to cut our bookkeeping costs down. It’s so easy it’s a no brainer.
