Systems integration and cake

14:00 Thursday 24th May 2018

The King's Fund, 11 Cavendish Square, London, W1G 0AN

With digital marketing and digital fundraising, organisations can no longer expect just one system to be able to manage their relationships with supporters or members – so systems integration is becoming increasingly unavoidable. Sadly, systems integration is a topic where the opportunity for confusion and conflicting advice is considerable.

Case management and cake

14:00 Wednesday 14th November 2018

The King's Fund, 11 Cavendish Square, London, W1G 0AN

Case management is a core activity for many charities, membership bodies, trusts and others in the sector. As with CRM, organisations can choose between traditional proprietary packages and systems based on platform solutions, such as Microsoft Dynamics and Salesforce. The range of options has been maturing steadily in recent years and this session looks at the choices available and the trend towards greater integration with digital and related technologies.
