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.

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.
