How Dynamics 365 benefits non-profits
CRM software isn’t just for sales-based businesses nowadays. Learn how Dynamics 365 benefits non-profits too!
When most people think of a non-profit organization, they probably think of a small, earnest office full of people that are doing their best with limited resources. The staff are motivated by a cause rather than profits and growth – the bread and butter of most offices that utilize Dynamics 365.
Although there is some truth to that – many people are attracted to work in the non-profit world out of a sense that they are making the world a better place – the reality is the non-profit world is just as sophisticated as for-profit industries. To be effective, non-profits need to take full advantage of technology like Dynamics 365 to maximize the benefits that they are working hard to create.
But, resources can be limited. That’s why it’s important for a non-profit to find the best value for their buck. CRM Dynamics is aware of that reality, which is why we have created an out-of-the-box Dynamics 365 solution that will fit in budget of the typical non-profit organization.
Dynamics Association Blueprint will provide you with the benefits of Dynamics 365 and a lower price-point. Although customizable, you won’t need to add expensive add-ons to see immediate benefits.
If you’re still on the fence about the need to switch to a Dynamics 365 experience, here are four reasons that it will help your non-profit organization.
1. Brings everyone onto the same page
Through the 360° view that that Microsoft Dynamics 365 offers, you’ll be able to gain a fuller view of what your organization offers. That can be of a great benefit for non-profits with multiple branches. You can see what everyone is doing and keep consistent processes across your organization.
2. Managing grants
Through Dynamics 365 you can track various grant opportunities, from the application process all the way through to when it is awarded.
You can set things up to remind them to renew or reapply for grants and you can be set it up so the right people in the organization sees it – avoiding duplication and confusion over who should be applying.
3. Cost Savings
As stated, Dynamics Association Blueprint has been designed with non-profits and other Membership Associations in mind. We will work with you to find a price point that works for everyone.
4. Donor and volunteer management
This is often the most important thing a non-profit does on a day-to-day basis. Dynamics 365 can help you track your volunteers and make sure that they are made to feel valued. In turn, that can help you retain them for the long-term (which helps reduce training costs as well).
If donations are a major factor in your organization, you can run multiple campaigns at the same time and better target key donors at the best time to have them open their check book!
