ÂTechWerks is excited about the FundVISION acquisition and how it will extend our already robust membership management suite to include fundraising and donor management,Â said Damian Scott, president of TechWerks. ÂMembership organizations will receive significant advantage from deploying our comprehensive Microsoft CRM-based solution.Â
The well-developed reporting capabilities of FundVISION allow managers to make timely and educated decisions while enabling not-for-profit organizations to maintain accurate records of contacts, donors, volunteers, gifts and receipts. With FundVISION, organizations can instantly view
the status of funds and campaigns using the softwareÂs numerous and easily modified standard reports.
As of October 15, 2004, all sales inquiries, orders, support and customer questions will be handled by TechWerks. Sales and support of the product will continue uninterrupted. TechWerks will fully support FundVISION and is committed to continued development of the product after the acquisition, Scott said.
ÂThis transaction is beneficial for both companies,Â said Ken Chartrand, COO of Encore. ÂFundVISION will allow TechWerks the ability to offer an immediate solution to its current base of customers looking to add an automated fundraising management program. This will solidify TechwerkÂs position among membership-based organizations as a leading supplier of software solutions.Â
Chartrand added: ÂEncore is happy to have reached a mutual beneficial agreement with TechWerks. We are confident that FundVISION customers will receive top quality support and service from TechWerks.Â
