Browsing the latest tech gadgets. Shopping for shoes. Picking a new car. Fun, right? Selecting software — not so much.
But like it or not, your technology choices dramatically impact your organization’s success — fundraising, delivery of programs, achievement of your mission. They also have a lot to do with how you do your job and how much you enjoy it each day. When it comes down to it, selecting technology for your organization is a choice that will affect your efficiency and results — positively or negatively — for years to come.
Sound scary? Don’t worry. Software selection is just one area where our nonprofit know-how meets our techie side. We have a deep understanding of how nonprofits operate and how the right software can promote and support your fundraising, communications and program management.
Software Needs Analysis
Choosing the right nonprofit software is a lot like shopping for a new home. You’ll be living with it for a long time to come. The first step is clarifying what you need (good schools — check; good neighbors — check; on the beach — check) and prioritizing those needs (ok, we’ll drive to the beach). Our Software Needs Analysis service will help you articulate and prioritize what you need from your technology systems.
After your Software Needs Analysis, we’ll compare your priorities with appropriate software in the marketplace and walk you through the results. We’ll give you a clear understanding of how each option may, or may not, be right for your organization. You’ll have the information you need to make an informed decision. We also include clear recommendations on implementing the software we think is right for you.
You’ll never have to wonder if you made the right decision — you’ll know you did.
