    Well suited for project based and/or organizational wide donation management. I like that a donor can easily find options for what they'd like to donate to, and we have the opportunity to clearly show donors what their donation impact will be
    Paul Coats | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Salesforce

    Ability to create dashboards. The project progress can be easily tracked. Tickets can be fed with all the right data and the same can be exported. You can customize the fields as per your usage. Can be used for multiple projects. The reports generated are accurate in nature and can be used for making important decisions and improvements.

    Pros

    Network for Good

    • It is very simple to enter donations and donor information into the Network for Good system.
    • We needed a way to track "soft credits" in our donor management system, and once we discussed this with the Network for Good staff, they updated the system to allow us to track "soft credits," and the process of tracking them is very simple.
    • If we have a question on how to use anything in the system, there are many how-to guides and videos that are easy to find. If the guides or videos do not help, the staff are available very quickly to help us troubleshoot our problem.

    • Salesforce.com is extremely customizable. I would not consider it an out-of-the-box solution, although its standard fields allow for fundamental CRM activities and reporting.
    • Salesforce.com is able to integrate with 100s of third-party softwares—often times creating efficiencies in processes.
    • Reports within Salesforce.com have the ability to be simple as a standard Account report, or you can get very granular with your report filtering to segment a very specific result, eg. Accounts in California who are active clients and fall within the pharmaceutical industry and have a specified market capitalization.
    Erik Viager | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Network for Good

    • When creating a campaign page - it looks strange with then start/end dates/times shown if campaign runs for more than 1 day
    • NFG should be able to download more than jpeg documents
    • There is no way of changing the delivery time
    Vivian Harrison | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Salesforce

    • Would like easier integration of Einstein data in Salesforce Dashboards so we do not have to navigate to the Analytics Studio.
    • Quicker adoption of custom objects into new offerings like the Pipeline Navigator.
    • Continued expansion of Salesforce Surveys for more features and flexibility.

    We are still learning and rebuilding our nonprofit using this platform, so this year is a trial run to see how we can increase our network and our donations. So long as we are able to see a significant return on investment in terms of donations received through the platform, we will renew for next year.

    While it's not perfect and can be overly complicated at times, there is not another solution out there that can do what it does. To get the same functionality you would need numerous disparate tools to match the amount of functionality Salesforce has. Having it all aggregated on one platform makes the complicated parts far more bearable

    Compared to the Salesforce Classic layout, the Lightning Experience is very user-friendly. Customize your top navigation bar to include quick links to your most frequently used records, objects, or reports. There are free online courses from Salesforce called "Trail Heads" to help new users get acquainted with the CRM. As a whole, it's a well-designed and user-friendly website. All is well, and there have been no problems so far.

    Salesforce performance in general is excellent. "The cloud infrastructure beneath Force.com has been fine-tuned over the past 10 years. It powers nearly 100,000+ businesses running more than 185,000 applications that 3 million users count on every day."
    Points per Salesforce -
    1) Multitenant kernel - With a multitenant platform, each business that uses the app doesn’t have its own copy. Instead, all businesses share a single copy and then customize it for their specific needs.
    2) ISO 27001 certified security - You can’t compromise when it comes to enterprise-level security. Force.com is road-tested and trusted by nearly 100,000+ companies, including many of the world’s most security-conscious organizations, such as banks and health care providers.
    3) Proven reliability - All Force.com apps run on world-class data centers with backup, failover, and disaster-recovery facilities. Force.com has had a proven 99.9 percent uptime record for years.
    4) Proven, real-time scalability - Force.com is used by many of the world's largest enterprises, including Cisco, Japan Post Network, and Symantec. Applications can automatically scale from a few users to millions of page views, as needed.
    5) Real-time query optimizer - You need fast access to your data. The Force.com query optimizer delivers under 300ms response time, at a massive scale.
    6) Real-time transparent system status - You can always see real-time system performance, availability, and security information at trust.salesforce.com.
    7) Real-time upgrades - Unlike traditional software platforms, our upgrades never break your customizations, code, or integrations. We upgrade the platform for you 3 to 4 times each year. As a result, you’re always on the latest version, with access to the latest features, performance, and security enhancements.
    8) Real-time sandbox environments - With a single click, you can create copies of your applications, configuration, and data in separate environments for development, testing, and training.
    9) Three global production data centers and disaster recovery - Force.com runs on three geographically dispersed, mirrored data centers with built-in replication, disaster recovery, a redundant network backbone, and no single points of failure

    Account managers are awesome for the most part but change every year. So just as they are getting to know your business they usually switch accounts. We have premier success now which gives us 24/7 access to support, which has been helpful as we deal with integration issues with APIs and across Salesforce products.

    I attended two training sessions. I would rate them a 4 as an advanced user. It was very basic – great for someone new – would give 8+ for new person.

    I had 3 years of experience at the time. I skipped basic and went onto advanced and still not helpful. A lot of it was best practices that didn’t feel relevant for our business

    Just from an organizational standpoint - we standardized our data prior to moving to Salesforce. But we essentially standardized it wrong. That's created a big disgusting mess for us know that I'll have to deal with as the Admin. Be sure you think through use cases prior to doing something like that - seek outside opinions on how the data will work best, especially depending on what else you're going to integrate with Salesforce.

    We are a small nonprofit. QuickBooks was a great tool for us to be able to communicate to our accountant, but that is where it stopped. NFG takes our QuickBooks information and turns it into valuable reports, analytics, thank you’s, and professional appearance. It gives our nonprofit a platform to communicate efficiently and accurately with our donors.

    When evaluating a CRM solution for our company we had a fairly simple decision process. We had to decide to buy vs build an internal solution - which we found for the cost Salesforce would save from development / IT perspective and provide a more robust solution. The closest out of the box competitor we looked at was the Microsoft Dynamics CRM product -and again, we found Salesforce to be a more robust / cost effective solution.

    The contract process was arduous. Some of that was because of the purchasing issues with our university, but as mentioned previously, we got a quote for a package and then they also recommended add-on fees. These were things we did not end up going with because we had budgeted based on the originally quoted amount. This has slowed down our implementation phase and meant we were paying for two CRM software for longer than I would have liked.

    I've worked with Salesforce since 2001 in companies ranging from 4 to hundreds of sales people and the system has been able to scale and perhaps more importantly expand (functionally) to the needs of larger organizations. In fact in my previous company, as a provider of a solution that integrated with Salesforce, we had customers that had thousands of sales people using Salesforce.

    Using Salesforce.com has made my daily routines more efficient and simplified the manual tasks I had to perform independently. I can now access data from any device, online or offline, and provide better guidance to my team about the forecasts provided by the built-in artificial intelligence (AI). A chat with a Salesforce support specialist would be great. The knowledge base has a community forum where Salesforce users can ask questions and learn more about the product.

    Return on Investment

    Network for Good

    • NFG was a major part of our growth during the Covid-19 pandemic. We switched to NFG March of 2020 and it was the main tool we had to stay connected to our donors and community. We were able to share our "story" with the video component and the easy drop down email acknowledgements. The templates empowered our staff to try new ways of communicating.
    • We produced a virtual group walking challenge from Nov 2020 - March 2021 and with NFG's help, we had easy outreach that inspired groups of otherwise isolated people to create teams together logging miles and sharing pictures and becoming community that was new and important. It was so easy to sign-up via NFG and it built a list of guests for this event and that list has become way more involved in our Center than ever before. It transformed relationships with clicks of a button in NFG.
    • Moving through 2021, it has proven more challenging than 2020. What was new is now old but NFG is a resource for innovation and new approaches that has become tremendously valuable to our organization. The creativity coming out of NFG matched with the business acumen is powerful and helps my small organization greatly. We are really small, but with NFG it feels like we have a team behind every initiative.

    • Companies that either hire consulting expertise or have in-house experts will benefit the most. It can be a powerful tool. Manage it correctly and there will be great benefits.
    • Conversely, if companies don't implement Salesforce.com with a plan, there will be frustration and small if any ROI realized.
