The client is a Pittsburgh-based non-profit organization working to improve the lives of people with physical disabilities. Working with a network of over 500 local groups, the organization supports over 10,000 people and their families across Delaware, Ohio, New Jersey, and Maryland.
The non-profit organization faced issues in managing multiple disparate systems for accounting, sales, asset management, invoicing, and reporting. As these systems weren’t integrated with each other, the organization struggled to get a unified view of its business operations. Besides, most of these systems were not up-to-date and had limited functionalities. The client needed a comprehensive solution to provide them with a single source of truth.
Also, they onboarded new equipment suppliers almost every year but didn’t have a robust solution to streamline various aspects of vendor management-onboarding, contract renewal, payments, and communication. They also needed to have a clear understanding of where their funds came from so that they could channel their fundraising efforts and foster long-term relationships with donors.
Lack of an integrated platform to manage operations across various business units
Inability to monitor operations in real-time, leading to delayed decision-making
Lack of a vendor management solution to simplify collaboration with suppliers
No platform to track funds and grants and cultivate lasting relationships with donors
