I've always been passionate about what non-profits and advocacy groups can achieve using technology. For me, CiviCRM shows an essential example of how non-profit and technology worlds can come together to provide real change - working as community, creating value for yourself, but also for others in non-profit sector.
CiviCRM helps us help non profits to do fantastic things with their data.
Being closely involved with the developers and documentation team on a daily basis ensures that we can give our clients the best and most up to date advice on how they can use CiviCRM to meet their needs.
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)
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.
Civi is one of those pieces of software that makes you wonder how early humans could have survived without it. Every nonprofit seems to be using Civi for some aspect of their fundraising, and I'm always surprised at the creative ways different people find to make it work for their needs. Happy to be able to help out a bit. There's a lot of energy going into this project--definitely checkout the forums and the IRC channel if you're curious.
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!
I have consistently found the CiviCRM community to be welcoming, inclusive and supportive, and this has inspired me to want to become a part of it. It is great that the open source community allows everyone to benefit from the contributions that each of us is able to make, and I am making my own contributions as I can.
As a software product, CiviCRM is powerful, versatile and extensible and is enjoying active development and growth by the community that uses it.
Over the past 15 years I've been involved in several open source communities.
CiviCRM is without any doubt the one that has the strongest focus in welcoming "newbies" and letting everyone feel at home here. Another impressive feature is the focus on shipping. No matter what you think of CiviCRM today, you are almost sure that there will be a newer and better version in a few months.
