There is a Mifos Business Intelligence Server that allows countries access to * Clients, groups and centers

* Setup, configuration & localization
* Financial transactions & accounting support

This website allows for the community to become involved and how they can be involved. There is a ton of support which provides information to help people better understand the program and how it works. The support tab provides so much information, that you could figure out just about anything with the program. For example, here is a list of system setups that other people that use the Mifos programs have shared. What is Your System Setup?
