Today Idealware released their new report, The Landscape of Salesforce for Nonprofits: A Report on the Current Marketplace for Apps, and we’re pretty excited about it at KELL. Scratch that. We are beyond excited about it…we’re shouting from the rooftops ecstatic about it.
So what’s the big deal about this report you ask? Well for starters, it’s never been done before. Other reports focus on donor and constituent management systems and have tried to place Salesforce in a bucket that it quite frankly doesn’t belong in. This new report only looks at Salesforce and then drills down into all the various ways nonprofits can utilize available apps in an easy-to-understand format and using non-technical terms that you can actually understand.
We heart Salesforce, but we’re the first to admit that Salesforce can be a little daunting if you’re new to it or not sure where to go with it once you’ve implemented your system. But it doesn’t have to be that way. That’s what makes this report so great. No matter when you are in your process, whether you are just starting to look into Salesforce or wanting to know how you can take it further, you’ll find answers to your questions in it.
Now what it won’t do is tell you things like “if your nonprofit wants to utilize a peer-to-peer donation app, then you need to go with XYZ product.” The reason being is that the right product for one nonprofit might not be the right one for another. Everyone nonprofit is different and your Salesforce instance will be different as well.
Since everything is constantly evolving, we expect that this report will be the beginning of what we foresee will be the must-read report series for any nonprofit that uses Salesforce.
So without further ado, click here to download the report and see for yourself just how great it really is.
