Dreamforce, San Francisco – October 5th, 2016:
FinancialForce, the leading cloud ERP provider on the Salesforce platform, today announces continued success with Nonprofit customers, which comprise around 10% of its overall customer base. FinancialForce offers a complementary solution to the Salesforce Nonprofit Success Pack that helps manage financials, projects, contractors and staff members. The combined Salesforce and Financial applications provide a single cloud solution to help Nonprofits around the world maximize their impact and deliver on their missions.
Nonprofit customers using Salesforce to manage part of their organizations can already take advantage of donor management, and have the ability to run fundraising, programs, engage with communities and manage communications. FinancialForce adds the ability to manage people, projects and money, enabling organizations to gain full insight into both donors and recipients, as well as the overall contributions and budget status.
FinancialForce works with many Nonprofit organizations with a myriad of missions, such as Camfed, Restless Development, Interlochen, Ashoka, Blue Shield of California Foundation, INTO University Partnerships, South Carolina Manufacturing Extension Partnership, Christian Children’s Fund of Canada and BuildIT International.
“All Nonprofit organizations strive to focus on their primary mission, rather than worry about wasting time on administration,” comments Jeremy Roche, CEO and President at FinancialForce. “Without our solution, they waste valuable time and resources struggling to report the true picture of their achievements to donors or regulatory agencies. We, along with Salesforce, offer a full end-to-end solution for Nonprofit organizations on one cloud that helps drive mission success. We’re proud to work with so many organizations that are doing great things to improve the world in which we all live.”
Daniel Probert, Head of IT Innovation at Camfed, the campaign for female education in Africa, comments, “It’s fantastic to see that FinancialForce is complementing the Salesforce Nonprofit Success Pack to serve the Nonprofit market. We have benefitted greatly from the ability to host Salesforce CRM data and financial data through FinancialForce applications on one platform. It is transforming our operations and infrastructure that enable our partner communities to respond with urgency and deliver girls’ education at scale. We now have the essential data we need to monitor and evaluate our programs, and put the innovative ideas of our alumnae – who are now leading our programs - into action.”
John Hindson, Head of Finance at BuildIT International, which transforms communities in Africa by training local people to build schools and clinics adds, “Before we implemented FinancialForce we were struggling to meet Nonprofit fund-tracking legal requirements. FinancialForce Accounting has resolved this and has enabled us to manage a 48% revenue increase in a year without adding headcount. Our old system wouldn’t have been able to cope with this level of growth. We now have a single platform strategy with our fundraising team using Salesforce, which brings seamless and unified reporting. We’re confident our systems choice will help drive further success.”
FinancialForce will host a Nonprofits session during Dreamforce on Thursday October 6th at ERP Central, Museum of African Diaspora (MoAD), 685 Mission Street in San Francisco. The discussion will inform Nonprofits about how to maximize the impact of their mission and manage people, projects and money in one system. Speakers are Tal Frankfurt, Cloud for Good; Dan Stark, NimbleUser; Daniel Probert, Camfed and Craig Levy, FinancialForce.
