Virginia Beach, VA (PRWEB) August 28, 2014
United Way of Greater Cleveland has been connecting people and resources across their community for over 100 years. The organization is moving forward to address the challenges facing their community today by focusing on three specific outcomes: kids succeeding in school, families and individuals achieving and maintaining financial stability, and a healthy community.
StratusLIVE will help support United Way of Greater Cleveland’s initiative to create and sustain lifelong relationships with partners, donors, advocates, and volunteers in the workplace and throughout the community.
“Our previous software did not support critical constituent relationship management initiatives. It also lacked efficient workflow process automation around activities management because applicable transaction, communication, and activity records are not centralized to the contact record,” said Mark Hogan, VP of Information Technology for United Way of Greater Cleveland. “Our old software did not support engagement initiatives such as event management and volunteer tracking. StratusLIVE for United Way, which is built on the commercial Microsoft Dynamics CRM platform, will help drive United Way of Greater Cleveland’s community impact through actionable business intelligence and personalized interactions.”
When it comes to customer service, Mark Hogan had this to say about StratusLIVE: “The StratusLIVE team has been responsive and extensive in its efforts to answer our questions regarding the system and its capabilities. Our overall experience during the evaluation and selection process has been excellent.”
One of their most important considerations was the knowledge that many large United Ways are already successful users of StratusLIVE software. StratusLIVE’s comprehensive software creates opportunities for organizations to become more productive and increase operational efficiency.
“StratusLIVE for United Way demonstrated the functionality we need at United Way of Greater Cleveland,” said Simon Bisson, Vice President of Resource Development for United Way of Greater Cleveland. “StratusLIVE will help grow, diversify, and sustain revenue beyond traditional workplace campaigns by increasing engagement and strengthening donor relationships.”
The ability to maintain all of an organization’s data in one place is essential to implementing system-wide best practices. The software migration to StratusLIVE includes collecting data from a variety of disparate applications and sources such as spreadsheets and legacy software.
“We are proud to have United Way of Greater Cleveland as a StratusLIVE partner, and we look forward to helping them serve the Greater Cleveland community,” said Jim Funari, co-founder and CEO of StratusLIVE. “StratusLIVE will continue to invest and deliver technology innovations to support United Way and the nonprofit community everywhere.”
