I find the engagement with our community of users to be intellectually stimulating
and rewarding. Seeing folks with expertise in a particular area step up and contribute their time and ideas to help improve the product is quite exciting. Every time I hear about a new interesting organization starting to use CiviCRM, I get a renewed sense of excitement about our work. The range of civic sector organizations currently using the software is quite amazing to me - from large international advocacy organizations to local performing arts troupes. I also really enjoy interacting with our international community - building friendships and getting to share culture (food, music, humor ....) with colleagues on every continent.
CiviCRM provides a great solution for our Social Good customers. And as a big proponent of software with no per user fees, no recurring subscription costs, and an open eco-system, I absolutely love what CiviCRM offers for our customers.
Managing data of party members and everything else related to political party. I've chosen CiviCRM because it is Open Source, it has many features and modules, it can be customized, it can be installed on any kind of servers or OSs, and it's powered by 3 major CMS systems. Yep, translation and localization were a major factor.
Its great to work on a project that has a profound impact on non profits. I am very excited about the work we do on CiviCRM which involves building on each other's ideas to create best of breed solutions for non profits. The fact that CiviCRM is an open source project with an amazing community and dedicated developers is an icing on the cake.
We help many not for profits implement CiviCRM through consultancy, training, configuration, support and custom development. Many of them come from a painful world of old Access databases, multiple spreadsheets and even paper. I love presenting demonstrations to new potential users; many are shocked by the scale of the software. CiviCRM is suitable for so many different organisations as it's been developed to cover so many bases off the back of community calls.
I maintain our own CiviCRM client database; it feeds into our drupal intranet to provide me with all the information I need at a click. I would be lost without it!
Online and offline membership sign-up and renewal,donations and event registration, integrated with our Drupal website. Directory for members, group and bulk emails, renewal reminder emails. Exciting to have complex conference registration within our CRM. Impressed with the Civi community and ongoing development of new features and improvements.
