CiviCRM provides a vital tool whereby nonprofits and other social projects can implement strong contact-relationship management capabilities without high monthly fees. It also provides the integration and customization capabilities necessary to make such software useful in the complex, lived reality of doing social engagement work. Plus it continues to build the open source toolset made available to the Commons and grow the common good.
We recommend and use CiviCRM with most of our clients, and have since 2005. It's got a fantastic collection of functionality that fits the needs of non-profit organization communications, and the CiviCRM community of developers and users is growing, broad, vibrant and responsive.
The best part? When I describe to potential new converts how all of their constituent relations (donations, membership, mass emails, etc.) can be managed with a single integrated, configurable tool, I can hear an incredible yearning at the other end of the phone.
I have been involved in the CiviCRM community for over 5 years, and enjoy implementing and programming CiviCRM for a variety of non-profits. I have been amazed at the rapid pace of innovation delivered with each new release, and CiviCRM's flexibility in being able to accommodate a variety of requirements. I have learned a lot about CiviCRM by participating in CiviCon, online forums, and CiviCRM book sprint.
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!
CiviCRM is one of the core offerings of our company. Remaining close to the CiviCRM community is important to us, as it keeps us close to new developments in the tool, and allows us to offer our feedback for new releases.
Freeform Solutions uses CiviCRM for our internal CRM. We are also a NFP IT support organization and we implement CiviCRM for NFP organizations we work for because we find that CiviCRM is the best open source CRM out there.
