Also had limited number of licenses, which further encouraged agency to rely on outside systems (like Excel spreadsheets) to capture information. Couldn’t track donor retention, didn’t have easily adapted/customizable features, no modern interaction with web/email/etc. Also, our data was not entered well and it was time for a full change across the board,” said Allison Mitchell, Director of Development at Northeast Arc.
