Our Blog

Fri, Dec 02, 2016
Okay, sorry, I know that's a terrible use of an acronym (not even a real use), but, well, somehow the time of year has got to me and I wanted to add my own little bit of festive cheer and provide a few short, sharp blog posts which I hope will take you through the season and into the New Year.So, starting next week, I will be providing my 12 Tips of ChRistMas (for charities). These will cover procurement tips, implementation thoughts, data, people's roles and even a whole post on how you can have a little bit of fun [...]

I have just published a new, free ebook: What Small Charities Need to Know about CRM Systems.

Holistic Data Management
With the proliferation of the newer, generic CRM systems into the NFP marketplace (i.e. Salesforce, Microsoft CRM etc), it can be easy for a smaller charity who has never before had the opportunity to use such powerful systems to believe that such systems are so easy to use that they won't even need a "database manager". Please don't believe that. You will need someone, whatever they are called, to manage the database/data to some extent, no matter what size you are.Just because you are going to run the new database through your browser - which may indeed make it more [...]

It is compiled from a number of articles I have published on my blog plus a series of brand new tips and in-depth analysis and advice.It is written for people whose day job is not the procurement of new databases - and you do not have to be technical to understand it. It is for fundraising managers, fundraisers, database managers, charity IT staff, those working in supporter services and indeed for anyone who has been [...]
