A myth to be debunked

  • 36. Past, Present, Future
  • 37. Why Now? – Looking Back Many Nonprofits share this timeline… • Late 90’s / Early 00’s – current core systems established • Early 00’s – Rise of the Internet & Email – silos! • Mid 00’s – Many systems + evidence of what works = time to consolidate to CRM. • But, tech newer so expensive & riskier & less rich • Late 00’s – the economy… lockdown, no changes
  • 38. Now Drivers Economic stabilization + Old systems got older + Tech has improved & lowered in price + Competition is on the move = Time to revive the CRM Vision Most orgs are planning (or planning on planning…) Some orgs out ahead – implementing, even refining
  • 39. Looking Forward • Constituent expectations are rising • Service – “Treat me as a whole person” • It’s a demand, and an opportunity. • Social Investment • Transparency • Impact (Outcomes Measurement) • Competition is Increasing • Tech changes are driving relationships (Social, then ?) • More Channels = More Silos or CRM!
