On November 7th, Tanzania-affiliated organizations, funders and academics from around Minnesota convened at the Wellstone Center to begin an important dialogue - how to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their work. As part of this day-long conference, attendees took part in sector-based discussions around best practices, challenges, and opportunities for collaboration in their work. After these discussions, there was a clear desire to continue the dialogue.
In early February, Beth Scudder, MINN’s Chief Technology Officer started a trial of Salesforce, a customer relationship management (CRM) tool. The CRM would allow MINN to capitalize on opportunities, improve interactions with members, and provide a more intentional approach to networking and collaboration. Additionally, Salesforce would streamline MINN’s operations through more integrated campaign management.
The month-long trial demonstrated the CRM’s potential, and on March 19, 2012, MINN was granted free and full usage of Salesforce Nonprofit Edition.
