CiviCRM helps the organizations we support to do what they have to do! At EE-atWork we assist our customers with implementing and using CiviCRM. This includes functional support, training, project management, data migration, integration using the API and customization. We are based in The Netherlands.
Our customers are mainly non-profits, varying from larger organizations continuously improving the way CiviCRM supports them to smaller organizations using the core functionality and perhaps contributing to a Make It Happen. We have been active in the CiviCRM community since 2009. CiviCRM is all about community, sharing and producing together. We truly believe that one and one can be three!
The community around CiviCRM is both welcoming and vibrant. CiviCRM as a software solution is a powerful and flexible data management solution for a vast array of nonprofit organizations ranging from the startup NGO to the established multi-million dollar foundation. In our daily work we are seeing more and more NPOs moving away from proprietary systems and single vendor SaaS solutions and embracing the open source community around CiviCRM. Organizations using CiviCRM love the extensibility and the freedoms that come with open source, freedom to choose hosting, freedom to choose project partners, and the freedom to re-use, re-purpose and re-deploy without paying extra.
CiviCRM is helping us serve member-based community organizing groups across the
U.S. to keep better track of their events, fundraising, and membership data. It's helping our community to aim higher in terms of what kind of questions they should be asking and what kind of data they should be collecting. We chose CiviCRM because it's the best all-around tool to do what our groups need, AND because it's open source.

We produce custom civiCRM/Drupal solutions for professional organizations and societies to satisfy their membership management needs. In its standard configuration, civiCRM provides a great deal of functionality and its integration with Drupal is outstanding.
We are also active in extending civiCRM with custom extension modules which are in development at our Github account(https://github.com/awasson)
Progressive Technology Project has released a new Drupal module called CiviCRM Cicero that integrates with the Cicero service from Azavea. If you are using CiviCRM with Drupal, you can now add legislative district and more information to your database.
Last spring I started working on a Drupal module that would keep CiviCRM contacts in sync with Salsa contacts. I did a lot of the work on it and then, upon joining PTP's staff, the project unfortunately fell to the bottom of my stack.
CiviEngage is a Drupal module that (in the next release of CiviCRM) automatically configures CiviCampaign to make it easier to get up and running by setting many of the configuration tasks with sensible defaults.
I hope Michal will forgive me for typing during his Developer training presentation on tests. Since I heard the presentation at CiviCon, I instead tried, as an exercise based on what we learned this morning, to create a custom group and custom field via the install hook in a Drupal module.
If you've ever configured a schedule task (aka cron job) for CiviCRM, you know the routine. You have to look up the username and password for a user in your database that has database permissions, you have to find a really long mess of characters known as your site key, you have to find the proper name of the job you want (like UpdateAddress.php or civimail.cronjob.php) and then you must string them all together in precisely the right way to make the cron job.
