Skilled volunteers from Baringa will assist Missionary Athletes International with a software application selection to help improve management of their growing donor data.
Missionary Athletes International (MAI) is an organization with a passion to share the message of Jesus Christ with people around the world through the sport of soccer. MAI claims that since soccer is the world’s most popular sport, if you roll out a soccer ball almost anywhere in the world, you will attract a crowd of children. This organization’s primary methods of evangelism and discipleship have been the organizing of soccer teams, conducting soccer camps, and taking short-term soccer tours overseas. MAI says that through the common enjoyment of this world-wide sport, they are able to build relationships that allow them to share their message.
Missionary Athletes International reached out to Apparo for assistance in identifying a donor management application to replace its current system and integrate with their current accounting software. Currently, they are using Denari which is not sufficiently supporting the organization’s evolving needs. They are seeking an application that would allow them to better manage, track, and analyze their growing 3,000+ donor base.
Apparo has paired MAI with a Baringa skilled volunteer team and Change Agent from Bosch Rexroth. This skilled volunteer team will partner with MAI to review current processes around collecting and managing donor data and document prioritized business and software requirements. As a result of the current state assessment, the team will conduct marketplace research to determine the most effective tools for MAI, then will schedule and facilitate demonstrations from software vendors. Finally, volunteers will recommend the best software application based on the needs of the organization.
