Our process

Our responsibility is to build a system that meets your precise needs. We will identify and suggest best practices used in the sector and across various industries. We don’t reinvent the wheel if we see an established and proven designs that can be used for your organization – saving you time and money.

The possibilities with technology are endless but the budget is not. Our strategy is to contain the cost, meaning if the solution to a problem requires more funding (example: an app or code which we need to purchase), we will recommend adjusting the process instead and use features available out-of-the-box.

We know that nonprofits are always on a limited budget, so we negotiate and encourage our partners in the tech industry to recognize our clients’ missions by offering the best possible price. We make it our business to be aware discounts and special offers available for nonprofits. We have a network of awesome collaborators who donate their products, solutions, and expertise to nonprofits. When needed, we help our clients to apply for grants and raise money for digital transformation.

We will train you to become experts of your system. Our goal is for you to become independent using from us or any other Salesforce consultant. We go out of our way to make sure the design and user interface is not only functional but also comfortable and intuitive.

 

How we work

We will work collaboratively always keeping your organization’s goal clearly defined. When necessary, we go back to the design stage and make sure that we developed an optimal solution. We work in phases, breaking down complex processes and systems into easy-to-tackle phases. We start simply and build complexity as we progress. User adoption is critical for success, therefore, we adjust to your rhythm.

Our approach to avoid programmatic automations (custom code) at all costs and leverage out-of-box functionalities of the platform.

Confidentiality is part of showing our stakeholders kindness and respect. And this show of respect is something we take very seriously.

Our Values

Doing good and working hard

Having a collaborative spirit and knowing hard work is core to getting good things done.

Have Fun

Laugh and make fun of ourselves. Having fun at work is a must. Enjoy the journey and don’t race to the destination. Life is precious, so let’s enjoy it every day.

Making a difference

Making an impact on people we work with is key. We want to help organizations develop new ways of looking at making change. Ultimately, we want to move the needle in the right direction with every strategic choice we make – one piece at a time.

Resiliency

Push through the hard part until we get to our goal. Our secret is that we are not afraid to fail – we work until there’s a solution that fits.

Express gratitude

At the end of each day we make sure to refill our “gratitude cup” by giving thanks and acknowledging the big and little things that made our day.

Supporting the underdogs

It’s only fair to stand up for underserved groups, support them and be an ally.

Reliability and presence

We do not leave people hanging. Care and kindness means supporting people through the process and beyond.
