Systems selection and implementation

Over the past ten years advances in technology have transformed the way we operate, and charities are no exception to this.

Selection and implementation of the right system can deliver efficiencies through automation of repetitive tasks, better decision making as a result of access to accurate and up to date management information or even competitive advantage through developments such as online donations or case management tracking.

Whether you need a fully integrated finance system covering all aspects of your charity’s operations, or a single system to address a specific need, such as a CRM package, we can plan the procurement and selection approach for business technology to ensure that your charity’s investment will deliver a significant return.

What we do

Our impartial and pragmatic advice will help you to choose the right technology for your charity’s particular needs. We can reduce the cost and time associated with procurement and selection by:

  • Evaluating of tenders on your behalf.
  • Performing due diligence on your preferred suppliers.
  • Helping to implement your chosen solution on time and on budget.

Our approach

In order to give you the best advice we need to understand your charity and its aspirations so that we can appreciate the scope of the proposed system. We can then:

  • Appraise the current business processes and identify current key issues.
  • Prepare a specification of requirements and invitation to tender.
  • Support the tender process (this could range from a light touch to full tender management including liaising with suppliers).
  • Assist with system implementation, ranging from project management to specific support in areas such as data migration, process re-engineering or project assurance.

Using our proven approach and our thorough knowledge of the hardware and software marketplace, our team of specialists will help you derive maximum benefit from your technology investments through the selection of the right system.
