What if your enterprise applications were built specifically for ALL of your people?

Your people deserve flexible, scalable solutions that understand and support them to achieve the same goal, wherever they work – from desk to field site, and everywhere in between.

Our approach to enterprise software is different. We believe your ERP should be your ultimate strategic partner, working with you to enhance your operations and make the most of your most important assets - your employees and your volunteers..

Instead of consuming people’s time with data entry tasks or static software tools, liberate them to work better and smarter. With comprehensive, role-specific tools and full control over change that people can change themselves, you can deliver applications that empower your people to fulfil their purpose with passion – all while navigating dynamic situations at home and around the world.

With all your people using the same tools, wherever they are, deployed on-premises or in the cloud, accessed via desktop or mobile, you can enhance internal operations while also building deeper connections with your donor base. More importantly, everyone can work in unison to deliver your ultimate goal – helping others.

How smart can you connect donations to their impact?

Keep your donors informed about the help they are providing, trace funds and benchmark results, without diverting attention or resources from your core mission – to help others.

Donors are more likely to continue supporting your organization if they stay engaged with your mission. There's no better way to communicate your effectiveness than to show them the benefits their donation created. With complete transparency into the financial chain, you can show supporters where and how you're deploying funds. Benchmark results in regular reports that show your financial and social impacts with clear performance indicators, and create ad-hoc reporting without diverting attention or resources from your core mission.
