If you’re an advancement professional looking for technology solutions to help reach your organization’s goals, the Heller Consulting team is ready to assist. We help nonprofits and higher education institutions develop their technology strategies, select the right software solutions to meet their goals, implement the technology, and improve business processes to use the technology in a way that helps them deliver on their missions.
