About us

Kasuwade Solutions Inc. is a small company based in Ottawa, led by Kasia Wakarecy, previously of Freeform Solutions. Our experience includes implementing several hundred large and small projects in CiviCRM, Drupal, Joomla and Wordpress, for not-for-profit and business clients from Canada and US. Kasuwade Solutions Inc. specializes in helping organizations to analyze and understand IT related needs so that the projects that follow, are properly integrated with existing/future IT solutions and are actually improving the ways the organization uses technology. Once the needs are identified, we help narrow down available technology to address those needs and provide expertise to implement them. We also serve in a project management capacity on projects where 3rd party development shops are hired to deliver solutions - we help to translate user requirements to technical specification, we keep the project on track and on budget. With our expertise across many systems and projects, we are the technology expert to help organizations make the right decisions before a project starts and along the way, ensuring the final product meets current needs and future growth requirements.
CiviCRM Services

Our CiviCRM services

Through our years of experience working with businesses and non profits, we have seldom had to explain why an organization would need a website, but the benefits of a data management system may not be so obvious. A system that can store your organization's "internal knowledge" like customer data, donors/sponsors data or volunteer data can be wildly beneficial, however, many organizations have yet to take full advantage of IT systems that can support administrative staff in storing and reporting on such important information. Even when an organization understands the need to preserve such data, it is frequently kept in spreadsheets, which makes it difficult to see the multidimensional layers of the information and ways to take advantage of it. Our expertise in database design and data and information management allows us to offer the following CiviCRM services: * design of data/information management systems to collect the information that is crucial to the organization * implementation of constituent/client management systems/databases like client databases, sponsor/donor databases, volunteer management systems, etc. using CiviCRM * import of existing data from current sources to CiviCRM * CiviCRM training for staff on updating information, usage and reporting * support in analyzing stored data and using that information in further actions like targeted mass mailing/newsletter deliveries/reaching out to clients/donors/sponsors/volunteers, etc.
