Most not-for-profits have a legacy system of storing information in a variety of Word and Excel files, hand-written notes, as well in (mandated) third party systems. As organisations grow and as reporting/auditing requirements become more demanding, managing data is this way is no longer feasible. This is especially the case if an organisation wishes to attract additional funding and grow. This presentation looks at how technology, specifically CRM and SharePoint, may be used to better manage and share information. These tools will enable a not-for-profit organisation to end the data management nightmare and set themselves up for the reporting and funding requirements of the future.
Key learning outcomes:
- Auditing of existing business processes
- Understanding difference between CRM and SharePoint
- Appropriate application of CRM and SharePoint
- Integration considerations for mandated systems (eg. IRIS, ISportal)
- Capturing information for outcomes based funding
- Real life examples of CRM and SharePoint in a not-for-profit
