Stroudsburg, PA (PRWEB) November 23, 2010
Stellar Technology Solutions LLC (http://www.stellartechsol.com), a leading provider of web-based philanthropic management software, today announced that the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago has successfully implemented Stellar’s iPhi CoreEnterprise® and iPhi DonorView® as its next generation enterprise technology solution. The iPhi solution replaces other ancillary systems, consolidating previously disparate data and processes into a singular, streamlined operational infrastructure for the endowment program of the Federation.
As one of the nation’s largest endowment programs, the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago faced significant technology obstacles in maximizing operational efficiencies across a growing volume of gift, grant, accounting and investment related transactions. The iPhi solution interfaces with the Federation’s proprietary campaign system to create an end-to-end software solution which includes secure donor access to the Federation’s donor-advised funds via the iPhi DonorView®. The Jewish Federation was a pioneer in the field of donor-advised funds, starting its program in 1971. The program has given out approximately $30 million in grants to charitable institutions each year over the last ten years.
”Due to the unique way the iPhi Solution captures transactional data (not just the General Ledger); we have accountability and reporting capabilities throughout the business lifecycle. We have increased data quality, expanded the internal capacity across our departments and enhanced overall information tracking,” said James Pinkston, Vice President of Accounting for the Federation. “With the addition of the iPhi DonorView®, we have installed a durable, long-term infrastructure that enables direct online donor access to real-time information and which will continue to adapt as our constituent’s needs and expectations change.”
“The Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago expands the internal efficiency of its core operations thanks to the automated business processes of iPhi CoreEnterprise® and the real-time engagement of their donors via the iPhi DonorView®,” explains Bryan Mileger, Chief Executive Officer of Stellar Technology Solutions. “We are especially proud that the iPhi solution enabled the Federation to implement its unique vision and goals for their endowment program.”
