Improving how you handle information with CiviCRM
For charities and voluntary organisations, there are increasing pressures to deliver more within ever decreasing budgets. Choosing to implement a database to streamline services can be very good decision.
CiviCRM is open source software, which means you can have a low-cost implementation and set-up. Ongoing costs can be as little as the web hosting costs, and there is a large, active community of developers and users that offer useful resources for no cost. The software itself is run as a not-for profit organisation so provides an ethical option, designed for the third sector.
CiviCRM can usually be implemented on your existing website or you can choose to host it separately. There are four systems to choose from: WordPress, Drupal, Joomla! or Backdrop.
All are open source and provide powerful as well as ethical options for the CRM database, and all benefit from an active community of users and developers.
