Hope for the Future's Salesforce.org implementation was part of VRP Consulting's QuickStart initiative: a program to help businesses and nonprofits move onto the Salesforce platform fast and see immediate returns. The VRP team conducted the entire project remotely from discovery to deployment with regular demos to incorporate feedback during development.
VRP Consultants first configured standard NPSP functionality before moving on to the lobbying process. To reduce admin overhead, UK Parliament data was automatically updated, including information regarding MPs in order to match constituents via postcodes. Once the foundation was in place, custom reports were configured to show the effectiveness of key aspects of Hope for the Future's work including fundraising, grant applications and lobbying. To ensure full adoption and a reduced time to value, dedicated user acceptance testing and training workshops were given throughout the project.
