Migrating & Managing

Data migrations are intimidating. We get that.

One of the discoveries we made at Third Sector Labs is the sheer number of nonprofit organizations that – quite literally – are afraid to move their data to more intuitive, cost-effective, user-friendly platforms. They feel trapped by cumbersome, legacy systems that often times are still in use simply because they were inherited from their predecessors and no one is prepared for the effort to migrate.

The problems with such arrangements should be obvious. First, it’s your data. If you can’t get to it, don’t know what’s in there, are unable to easily manipulate and manage it, and are terrified of moving it lest data be lost in the transition, then suffice it to say you’re in the wrong place. Second, the importance of data is only going to grow. The longer your data remains trapped in a limited management application, the farther behind you’ll fall – and the more catching up you’ll have to do.  And odds are, if you are stuck in that situation, you aren’t investing in a solid data management plan either.

Our TSL data professionals have worked with a wide variety of industry leading CRMs and donor management systems: Raiser’s Edge, CiviCRM, Salesforce, Kintera Sphere, SugarCRM, Bloomerang, and more. We help you by planning and executing your data migration.
