What did BEDF need?

Muniza helped BEDF create a customized Salesforce database that allows the organization to track donors, clients, beneficiaries as well as manage and analyze large amounts of data.

Why is this project important?

The BEDF manages critical philanthropic funds for K-12 schools throughout Boston. We help educational leaders throughout the district identify funding opportunities and allocate their resources efficiently and effectively. Currently, the BEDF uses Salesforce to track philanthropic funds throughout the district. Overall, the Salesforce platform greatly streamlines our work. However, several key Salesforce fields and objects are either mislabeled or not properly related to other fields and objects. This can cause confusion for both the schools we serve and the philanthropic partners that we collaborate with.

This project will save us $22,852, allowing us to better serve the needs of school principals and students.

What did they have to say?

Muniza was incredible to work with! She went above and beyond what BEDF expected, conducting a full audit of our IT systems, helping us to improve our internal business processes. Muniza has a deep knowledge of Salesforce and database/CRM systems and her work on this project will dramatically streamline and improve the way that BEDF uses its CRM.

Throughout the project, Muniza was communicative, patient, and engaged. She actively sought ways to add further value to the project and did not cut any corners. Furthermore, her final deliverable and recommendations were relevant, accessible, and actionable--she taught us so much!

I can't recommend Muniza highly enough. Her skills and knowledge would be a huge asset to any organization!

Working with BEDF has been a great experience. I learnt about the valuable service they provide to the Boston schools. The concern to improve their performance was evident in all the questions and goals that Patrick expressed. As a consultant, I rely on clear requirements which can only be gained if the business side is prompt and forthcoming. Patrick’s quick responses, gave me a clear understanding of the current state and allowed me to perform an accurate gap analysis.
In our meetings, I found BEDF employees to be eager to make improvements and to keep the data clean and valuable for their customers. After working on this project, I feel a sense of team accomplishment and would recommend any of my colleagues to work for BEDF.
Thank you so much for the opportunity to contribute to your organization.
