If it weren't for CiviCRM we'd be using at least 5 different
systems for Woolman: one for donor management, another for email newsletters, a third for our school enrollment, a fourth for our summer camp registration, and then a whole bunch of spreadsheets for keeping track of things like event attendance, prospective students, CSA memberships, etc. And of course none of those systems would talk to each other or make it possible to get a whole picture of the many ways one person might participate in our education center's activities. Migrating all of our scattered data and disparate systems to CiviCRM was a long and challenging process, but the results have been more than worth it. Our ability to track and report on our programs has improved dramatically, while the burden on staff to do data entry has been greatly reduced, and our participants are happy that they can now register/enroll online rather than mailing or faxing paper forms.
Civi empowers organizations to maintain the data of the people they serve on their terms. The community is welcoming, happy to share and eager to document. I know where to look or who to message, that is priceless.
I believe in the empowerment of individuals and organizations. The CiviCRM tool provides the flexibility and capacity for organizations to reach goals through newsletters and also targetted campagning.
We use CiviCRM for our Membership and Supporters system. We're committed to using Open Source solutions and are keen to expand the variety and success of our member recruitment and fundraising efforts.
At CITA, we help organisations with social purpose to use technology. CiviCRM is a great piece of software that can help many of the organisations we work with record and monitor interactions with their clients, volunteers and supporters.
CiviCRM is seamleassly integrated in Drupal, the world's leading social publishing system. This Open Source combination allows for the most flexible solutions while enjoying continously improved CRM-standards that shorten the time-to-market span of your individual demands.
We learned so much from community resources - meetups, forum, blog... as well as the wealth of knowledge and experience CiviCRM developers and users have about the system, and the fact that so many are willing to give their time freely.
CiviCRM is probably the best CRM system I have seen on the market for non profits.
It has all the features our clients need - most of them straight out of the box. There is also a wealth of knowledge on the community forums and many plugins created by the Drupal community.
We would recommend CiviCRM as our first choice to our clients in the non profit sector who are looking for a CRM solution.
