GivingData’s Strategic Services are one of our key differentiators, and a significant value to our clients
Before we dive into software development with a new client, our team of strategic consultants spends time understanding what foundation users require to perform their day-to-day jobs. Using a simple process and a well-defined methodology, GivingData consultants facilitate workshops with foundation executives, program staff, and grants management teams. The conversations focus on user needs, not features and technical considerations. From these discussions the software development requirements and priorities emerge.
Furthermore, we understand how important it is that foundation staff is not disrupted by the deployment of a new Grants Management System. Therefore, we develop implementation plans customized for each client that ensure grants data is never offline, training is done in manageable chunks, and historic data is preserved during the migration to the GivingData platform.
We’d be happy to talk with you about your organization’s needs and our process.
