Customer Database (CRM) Set Up

Project Details

What We Need
  • Setup of selected CRM system (e.g. Airtable, Salsa CRM, Salesforce, Raiser's Edge, Bloomerang, or Kindful) including a customized set of objects, single-record editing of data and field history tracking (up to 15)
  • A customized set of views and reports to allow table-based editing and analysis of data (up to 15)
  • Migration of Organization's current database to identified CRM system
  • Training and guidelines on how to manage system and generate basic reports
  • “Hand-off” documentation on the object schemas and any custom code
Additional Details

We currently have a CRM designed for us but our developer is longer longer able to work with us and several of the reports are not working. We are seeking assistance determining if the current program is salvageable or if we need to look elsewhere.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a working program and can get program coding from developer, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have access to the programmer (at a cost) if necessary, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $10,792 , allowing us to follow our mission of feeding the hungry by using our precious funds to maintain facilities, staff and provide the most nutritious food possible to our vulnerable population.

We depend on our program to track usage of our food pantry by clients. We have many specialized reports (not all complete) that are necessary to report to our funders. We have been working on this program for over 10 years and it has never worked as we would like!
