We are a Christian charity offering programs for youth and families in the outer suburbs of Melbourne, Australia.
We were in partnership with another organisation and when we became independent, we needed to separate our data. The previous system was old and difficult to use and the data was not very sound.
We did a lot of research into what was best for non-profit organisations and infoodle was recommended. We then tested it out and were happy to find something in the Southern Hemisphere that suited our needs so well at a reasonable price.
We are currently focused on the CRM as we are only in our first year, so we want to ensure that all our data is clean. We are slowly introducing staff to it as we go, since we use it mostly to track our supporters and communicate with them. It also helps us to maintain volunteer and staff records.
Our previous database had been constantly added to, but rarely had anything taken off it, so we knew we had to be careful to make sure our staff understood their requirements clearly. It has been so much easier with the ability to set specific roles. Now we can make sure that each staff member only changes things within their own volunteer group. In addition, I can easily print off reports to check that all the information is current.
infoodle offers many benefits, but the one I have appreciated most is that it works hard to ensure we identify people clearly and don’t enter the same people twice. Checking not only names, but also addresses is really helpful. The contact is also really easy and I use it for most of my emails. My favourite though is the reports, as I can choose anything I need to know and have it in my hands in minutes.
