Nothing should stand in the way of your mission.
Rallying workers, volunteers and other stakeholders can often be a daunting task. This task isn't usually aided by standard technology. NGO's require unique processes and models tailored to their individual needs. Some NGO's thrive through digital transformation and innovation, yet some stagnate and suffer due to a lack of it. The question for NGO's today is not, whether they should innovate but rather how to innovate and what does that look like.
Challenges the industry is facing:
To build a better world, we need to know what our limitations are.
Non-profits come in all shapes and sizes, meaning that it is especially difficult for you to make use of one generic process. As an NGO you are most likely facing a lot of information, which means keeping track of inputs and outputs is complicated.
We have worked with many NGOs and understand that you are faced with challenges like program management, delivery programs, scaling, and aligning projects across different partners not to mention securing and managing funds. Let's take a closer look at some of these challenges:
There are operational challenges such as project executions and delivering on the promise of your mission. This is driven by a lack of investment in program management tools leading to confusion.
Your growth is stagnating due to limitations in your IT systems not being able to handle new users, locations, projects, and processes.
Alignment between all stakeholders is difficult. Often with both national and international headquarters, you tend to experience inefficient communication and a lack of standardized data reporting.
Many of your go-to processes are done manually, from logging in new projects on excel to helping potential donors filling out donation forms. This is time-consuming and ineffective.

Working with Solidaridad
We had the opportunity to work with Solidaridad recently. Solidaridad is an international solution-oriented civil society organization. Their vision for the world is a world in which everything that is produced and consumed can sustain us while respecting the planet, each other and the next generations.
Solidaridad is on a mission to bring together supply chain companies in order to engage in innovative solutions to improve production. This ensures that the transition to a sustainable and inclusive economy maximizes benefits for all.
Solidaridad was facing inefficiencies in their daily tasks as their systems were constantly disconnected. They needed one solution that would allow the finance team, in fact, all teams in general to be connected with one source of data.
Cloudteam Company was asked to:
Implement the full FinancialForce suite on the Salesforce platform.
Ensure that all processes are running smoothly.
Enhance data retrieval and communication between teams.
The solution and result
Joining Salesforce and FinancialForce
To meet the needs of Solidaridad, we had to implement the full FinancialForce services.
Since that implementation, Solidaridad is fully integrated on the Salesforce platform and is in a continuous course of improving its management of information and processes.
When asked on how the collaboration between Cloudteam Company and Solidaridad was, when implementing FinancialForce, Erna Wegman responded:
“Cloudteam’s knowledge of the products and the quick understanding of Solidaridad’s processes helped us a lot. The people at Cloudteam Company have a lot in common with the people at Solidaridad – they are all enthusiastic and want to make the world a better place.”
