“StratusLIVE’s Microsoft Dynamics-based CRM platform will allow us to focus on widening our donor base as well as getting the most out of our existing donors
Virginia Beach, VA (PRWEB) September 10, 2014
United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona has been serving its community for over 80 years. A 5-star Guide Star rated charity, United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona is a focused, results-driven organization working year-round to change community conditions and create lasting solutions.
Earlier this year, United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona chose StratusLIVE for United Way as their donor management and fundraising constituent relationship management (CRM) software. Today, both organizations are pleased to announce that United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona has officially gone live on StratusLIVE for United Way.
“StratusLIVE’s Microsoft Dynamics-based CRM platform will allow us to focus on widening our donor base and more fully engage our existing donors,” said Steven Hykes, controller for United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona.
“We compared other software options and while a few of them seemed like good software just for inputting donations, we felt that with the StratusLIVE for United Way CRM, we could get more dynamic queries and better results. We also felt that StratusLIVE would allow us to more easily identify new donors and obtain more donations from donors that are already in our database.”
“The Wealth Engine integration component is huge for us. Workplace campaigns across all United Ways have seen a downturn in recent years and, although it’s starting to bounce back a little bit, more emphasis is placed on the individual donor in order for a nonprofit to succeed,” Hykes noted. “StratusLIVE will allow us to be able to identify those unique donors, track their giving patterns, and assess historical giving levels across the board.”
One of the most compelling reasons why United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona chose StratusLIVE was the promise of finally being able to bring all donor data into one consolidated database to better facilitate information sharing between the marketing, finance, and resource development departments.
StratusLIVE for United Way’s comprehensive, mobile, and social features will help eliminate multiple point solutions that often stand in the way of creating a unified database and create opportunities for organizations to operate more efficiently and increase impact. The ability to maintain all of an organization’s data in one place is essential to implementing system-wide best practices.
“United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona is doing fantastic work in their community and with StratusLIVE for United Way, we hope to be able to help them maximize their impact,” said Jim Funari, CEO and co-founder of StratusLIVE. “We’re excited to help support their mission to connect people and resources in their communities.”
