Year Up Uses Appirio Platform to Measure the Effectiveness of its Programs
Jul 29 15
Appirio announced it has entered into an agreement with Year Up, to implement Salesforce Analytics Cloud. Year Up will use the platform to measure the effectiveness of its programs by analyzing large quantities of data and identifying areas for improvement. The goal of the agreement between Appirio and Year Up is to better address this Opportunity Divide, using cloud analytics to organize and understand large quantities of information stored across various internal databases. Year Up is looking to modernize its program by eliminating the use of spreadsheets that require constant updating and consolidating Salesforce data into two separate dashboards to illustrate donation trends. This includes: Fundraising Analysis -- One of the primary reasons Year Up has grown to 14 sites across the country is through fundraising. The organization is planning to double that number in the next 3-5 years. Appirio has worked with the Year Up fundraising group to give them the ability to dig much deeper into their fundraising numbers. Donor Management -- Year Up manages its relationships with its donors closely. Using the Salesforce Analytics Cloud, Year Up can now do a deep dive into its donor data, including things like recording meetings with donors by year, quarter, month, site, and the different types of tasks, donors, meetings and then compare and link all these points directly against revenue data.
