Girikon – a leading name in the IT service space partnered with a not-for-profit organization that assists people suffering from a genetic disease called Cystic Fibrosis (CF). The organization was struggling to manage client details seamlessly using its existing CRM. Girikon partnered with the client and helped them to migrate from their existing CRM to Salesforce’s Not-for-Profit Success Pack.

The client selected Girikon over other Salesforce consultants because of its high-quality and cost-effective solutions that are customized to meet the needs of the non-profit sector. Also, Girikon’s on-shore and off-shore capabilities have impelled the client to partner with it as Girikon always remained cognizant of the client’s desired outcome. Moreover, the Client was also able to complete the project within the projected time frame following which the Client started using Salesforce immediately post-implementation.

About the client

The client is a non-profit organization that works to provide practical support to the people affected by Cystic Fibrosis and the challenges they face. They do so by subsidizing equipment costs and organizing social events for creating awareness. The client is also supported by the national body of cystic fibrosis in their endeavor.

The Problem

The following pain points were identified during the discovery phase:

  • Capturing, tracking, and updating client details is a manual and time-consuming process.
  • The existing system had limited automation capabilities.
  • Data regarding donations were recorded in spreadsheets, as well as in the current system without any consistency.
  • Tracking member relationships had been difficult.
  • Availability of limited reporting in the current system.
  • Migration was done away from the current system and into Salesforce’s NPSP.
  • manually maintaining the current CRM system required a lot of time and effort, which put a strain on the small number of employees. This left the organization with less time to accomplish work that really mattered to them, as well the Cystic Fibrosis community.
