Are You Still Using NGO Connect?

In late 2020, Salesforce announced the retirement of nonprofit CRM, NGO Connect (NGOC). NGOC, along with Advancement Connect and foundationConnect, was acquired by Salesforce in early 2019 as a part of the roundCorner acquisition.
NGOC laid the groundwork for many nonprofits, and dozens of companies and users have used the software for years and still use it today. Their data, procedures, and routines are deeply rooted in NGOC’s processes.

While it is never easy to make a big change, especially one as tedious and precise as switching the core business software to a new one, the benefits of implementing a new and improved software greatly outweigh the cost of sticking with an outdated one.

As NGOC gets phased out as a result of its retirement, many companies who are currently integrated with the software will need to begin looking for a new platform.

Choosing the Right Platform

Nonprofits who are now in the market for their next software after NGOC should focus on solutions that offer scalability, customization, and efficient data storage options. Additionally, a platform that pinpoints the specific needs of nonprofits, such as fundraising, marketing, and donor retention will be essential.

There are hundreds of different platforms available to customers, and with so many options, it can be difficult to know which one will be the best fit for your company. At Ekartha, we can help you decide which platform is the best for you from a migration perspective and from a future-oriented perspective.

In addition to choosing a new software, companies will soon have to plan a migration from NGOC to their new platform, and they will then need to learn how to navigate the new platform. A task of this size has the potential to be a stressful and daunting experience, but the experts at Ekartha are here to help you every step of the way in making the change.
