Today we’re launching our article series and eNewsletter, which I’m really proud of. We’ve posted two great new articles:
Retooling the eNonprofit: Expanding the Options for Integrated Online Software
Internet strategist Michael Stein was kind enough to contribute his expertise. He describes what’s available in the integrated online software tool market, with some guidelines on features, considerations, and price.
A Few Good Tools: Low Cost Constituent Databases
This is the first in a series of articles summarizing a “few good tools” that have worked well for nonprofit technology professionals in the Idealware community (this one is about low cost ways to manage constituent data). I’m really excited about this format – it’s a way to sum up the substantial software knowledge that the community has, and make it available to a much wider audience. While many consultants don’t want to go on record recommending one tool over another, most are happy to contribute to a summary like this, making it good for everyone. And we got a great response from the Idealware tech professional community – I sent out 14 requests for thoughts and recommendations, and got 13 thoughtful and useful responses. You can’t beat that response rate. The eNewsletter also includes a round-up of what we’ve found to be the most useful articles from around the web this past month. You’ll have to sign-up for the eNewsletter to see the round-up, you RSS lurkers. Okay, okay, the eNewsletter is also available online: www.idealware.org/articles/enews_0601.html
