Volunteer Team: EPIC Change Agent Bill Hammelman and Technology Volunteers Kevin Loux and Michael Webber
100 Gardens is looking for a suitable CRM to help manage their donors, campaigns and events and track project management. 100 Gardens is currently operating without a CRM. They utilize Snowball as their fundraising/text to give software, QuickBooks for financial data, and utilize G suite/Google docs to track project data. They have currently budgeted $900/yr for a software solution.
Three volunteers – EPIC Change Agent Bill Hammelman and technology volunteers Kevin Loux and Michael Webber – have stepped in to support 100 Gardens in finding the CRM application that is best for the organization. As part of the process, they will also define the specifics about 100 Gardens’ current technology needs, processes and procedures. At the end, the CRM application selection will help 100 Gardens be more efficient and productive.
The CRM application selection will help provide marketplace research, demos, price comparisons, implementation/setup and the needs the software must have for 100 Gardens to successfully and sustainably administer to their business.
Specific expected impact includes:
- Increased productivity
- Easier data management for donors, events and projects
- Increased efficiencies to perform data entry
- Increased ease of use for analytics and data reporting
- Expanded Reach
- Expanded ability to track donor data
- Enhanced ability to track projects
