News : National FFA Foundation Implements StratusLIVE's Enterprise CRM Platform for Nonprofits


Virginia Beach, VA, USA, July 30, 2019 -- In early 2018, the National FFA Foundation decided that it was time to search for a new donor software system. After years of using 14 separate systems for everything from donation processing and tracking to marketing appeals and membership management that did not integrate, they knew they needed one fully integrated solution that housed all constituent information in one central database. A generous donor gifted National FFA licenses to Microsoft Dynamics 365, which was a big step in the right direction.

Bentz Whaley Flessner (BWF), a consulting firm that helps nonprofits with strategic fundraising, was hired to help manage this search. Jason S. Boley, Senior Associate with BWF, was a trusted advisor to the National FFA Foundation and led the search for new software, and StratusLIVE's Enterprise CRM Platform for Nonprofits, StratusLIVE 365, was selected in May 2018.

In the past, FFA lacked the extensive nonprofit functionality required to manage the entire organization in one fully integrated solution for financial processing, campaign management, online fundraising, more comprehensive and deeper constituent engagement, interactions, connections, and more. They recognized the unique ability of StratusLIVE 365 to meet those needs and more.

StratusLIVE has now provided the foundation with one fully integrated Microsoft Dynamics 365-based solution and the ability to house all fundraising constituent information in one central database on the Enterprise CRM platform. Since the selection, the foundation is also implementing the StratusLIVE Give Now Portal.

Staci Glaser, director of development operations, National FFA Foundation stated, "StratusLIVE is loaded with functionality that we use to streamline and improve the efficiency of our fundraising tactics. With features like native integration to Microsoft Office, a direct plugin to Outlook, and the ability to access it on computers and tablets, we are more efficient in communicating with our donors and employees alike. Plus, with easy access to robust data, staff are empowered to pull their reports and build data dashboards, all in a seamless process!"

When asked, Glaser said her favorite part of StratusLIVE is that "It's very user-friendly and easy to use. I love that you have access to data dashboards and reports at your fingertips. Also, Katie [StratusLIVE Project Manager] is one of our favorite parts of StratusLIVE."

"One of the greatest rewards in the work we do at StratusLIVE is the fulfillment we feel when clients like National FFA Foundation achieve such positive results and experiences with us," says Jim Funari, StratusLIVE CEO. "Knowing our technology plays a role in helping National FFA support more youth development, community service, and agriculture makes us very pleased to be a partner in their mission."
