We have mastered the art and science of

nonprofit technology strategy.

More than 50% of technology projects fail. The technology moves forward, but the organization stays in place. Why? Because although new technology can be powerful, it can’t transform a nonprofit on its own.

We help nonprofits make the most out of their technology.

Creating a CRM Roadmap for the UN Foundation

As the UN Foundation diversified and expanded their strategies, they needed to change how CRM supported their work. Build started with an technology assessment, before proposing specific changes to technology which gave the organization a clear roadmap from which to approach their technology strategy.

But our findings also provided an opportunity to understand how the foundation must transform to get the most from their CRM investment.

  • Build became part of the team and took joint ownership of the project and finding the solution. This was not your typical consulting engagement. Build is really invested in the success of nonprofits and they were so quick to jump in and got the lay of the land right away.

  • Build dug into the details, they politely asked the same questions five times until they got an answer. They were very professional, very smooth. They gave us the sense of being part of a solution. After 30 years of doing things the same way, they showed us that there is room to change and room to grow. They are a wealth of knowledge, the consultants can relate to our experience and were excellent. In terms of the project as a whole, the methodology that we went through was marvelous.

  • I’ve lived through assessments where the solution was always “more and better IT.” Build took a different approach. They encouraged us to get the business processes right – before we invest in technology. They think about information systems from a business perspective, not solely a technology one.
