CRM Roadmap – A comprehensive plan for your CRM ecosystem

Starting from scratch with a new CRM technology strategy? Whether you already have a new system in mind or not, the CRM Roadmap is the place to start. We guide your team through a formal discovery process to identify your goals and requirements for CRM technology. From there, we develop a plan for transitioning from your current CRM system to a new system. We can then lead you through selection of new solutions and systems, or you can use the plan to conduct your own selection effort. Either way, you’ll have a clear strategy for moving forward.

Nonprofit Technology Roadmap – A complete plan for all of your nonprofit’s technology

Looking at more than just your CRM system? You know that powerful technology options are out there for nonprofits. Now it’s time to take a broad view of your choices and craft a complete technology ecosystem that supports your organization’s strategic goals. During our Nonprofit Technology Roadmap process, we partner with you to review all of your technology, not just your CRM system. From there, we map out technologies that will bring new efficiencies and optimize your return on investment. The result: You will have a clear view of which new systems to implement, which to streamline, and how they will all work together.

CRM Comparative Analysis – A detailed comparison of two CRM systems

If your organization is trying to decide whether to leave your current CRM system for a new system that you have already identified, or if you need a comparison of two potential new systems to replace a legacy system, this is the service for you. We create a detailed comparison to help your organization assess and decide which of the two technology platforms or systems is right for your organization.

CRM Fit Assessment – A final check that you’ve made the right CRM system choice

You might have identified a new potential CRM system but need to assess the impact the new system will have on the organization before making the final decision. With a CRM Fit Assessment, we help you analyze a single CRM option and confirm its suitability for your organization. The assessment provides the details you need to move forward with new technology, including one-time and ongoing costs, organizational readiness, staffing considerations and data/technology migration planning details.

Guided Technology Selection – Choosing the right technology for your CRM ecosystem

Even if you already have a strategy for your technology ecosystem, choosing the right technology is not always easy. Our Guided Technology Selection service provides guidance, templates, and selection methodologies to help you through vendor demos, system comparisons, and project planning so nothing gets missed. We’re there every step of the way, providing support and allowing your team to tap into our years of experience in nonprofit technology selection and implementation.
