We still have to do a really good showcase, but I do quickly want to share some encouraging figures from the MAF Norge CiviCRM implementation with you:

  • in the old system we could process 100 contributions per day, with CiviCRM we can now do 200!
  • in the old system it took a couple of hours to send a batch of PDF letters to donors, it now takes me a couple of minutes

Nice eh? Totally out of context and probably not really fair comparisons....but I do like the numbers :-)

One of the best attended sessions at NTEN's 14NTC was the Data Visualization session.  It was not only standing room only, but it also included people sitting on the floor and standing outside the room trying to hear tips and insights about this hot topic.

CiviCRM has a wide selection of reports.  Users can choose out of the box reports, but if these don't meet your needs, you can also customize them.

Hello from Washington, where we've finished our first day of the 2014 Nonprofit Technology Conference events--halfway through the User and Administrator Training. 

(Read more about what's going on here this week at my previous blog post.)

But I have a request for all of you out in CiviLand--send us your awesome CiviCRM pages!  Show off what you've done for event pages and registration forms, contribution and membership forms, contact listings, petitions, and more.  We'll automatically show it at the NTC.
