Making a change

In 2014, the team at SRI embarked on updating their organization's technical architecture in line with their innovation strategy. At that point, they had a 7 year old database which didn’t give them the flexibility they needed to take their organization to the next level. “Our teams were affected by the legacy database which was time consuming to use and not user friendly. We considered improving the existing system, however after assessing the cost and understanding the limitations, we decided to seek an alternative solution,” says Susie Offord-Woolley, Deputy Director, SRI.

Small change, big impact

Salesforce CRM increases:

  • Flexibility
  • Security
  • And fundraising capability.  

Another attractive quality of Salesforce's CRM capability is its ability to integrated with accounting, email and other cloud solution software.

We are three times as efficient as we were previously; we have seen an increase in donations, more collaborations between the teams and better reporting, which has helped us plan ahead.” In a short space of time Salesforce has proved to be central to SRI’s success.
