A scalable platform that empowers the Tasmanian Land Conservancy to run the organisation more efficiently resulting in deeper constitutent engagement.

The foundation for a connected Nonprofit

After years of using a legacy system, the Tasmanian Land Conservancy (TLC) identified the need to move to the cloud. As a growing nonprofit with multiple teams, the organisation didn’t have a centralised system and data wasn’t being shared across programs. Poor data management meant inefficiencies were hampering growth and the ability to scale. Frustrated with inflexible, infrequent updates, and a legacy system that didn’t integrate with other tools, the TLC looked to Salesforce as the solution.

Our old CRM, with its rudimentary application, poor integration with our communication platforms, and subsequent low adoption rate, was impacting our ability to represent and manage the diverse interactions we have with our donors, and within teams.

Building relationships and honing efficiencies

The TLC’s previous CRM system had evolved over many years with different users developing different protocols. Data was inconsistently stored with inadequate reporting capabilities. There was also minimal integration with other systems, which led to workflow inefficiencies.

At its core, Salesforce serves as the TLC’s constituent relationship management (CRM) tool. Understanding prospect and donor relationships is extremely important to the TLC’s growth and Salesforce provides a holistic view of each member.

NobleCX implemented Salesforce Sales Cloud together with Salesforce Nonprofit Success Pack (NPSP), Volunteer Management, Pardot and successfully unified a wide variety of the tools and processes the TLC had previously relied upon.

With Salesforce, we can be confident in the information we have in our system and spend more time and resources on connecting with our supporters.

Mobility has changed the way TLC connects

The mobile Salesforce app has revolutionised the way TLC access their data. The team can be out in the field wanting a contact number, needing to find a fundraising campaign figure for a meeting or about to meet a supporter and wanting to check their giving history – the mobile app puts it all at their fingertips.

It’s wonderfully convenient and user-friendly, and we can now work on the run, adding new tasks or activity notes to the CRM before we even get back to the office.

The NobleCX way

Moving systems is a large undertaking. NobleCX worked with the TLC to guide the team through the process with a clear strategy, professionalism and expertise.

NobleCX customised, deployed and facilitated the adoption of Salesforce across the Philanthropy and Engagement teams while designing capabilities to further roll out the system organisation-wide. NobleCX delivered a range of fully tailored services meeting the needs of TLC’s supporters and staff.

Through implementing Salesforce, NobleCX enabled the TLC to achieve a streamlined fundraising process that included efficiencies for one-off and recurring donations and receipting. Salesforce is also hosting the TLC’s gift in wills, event and volunteering data beside each constituent.

Additionally, Pardot supports the overall TLC marketing strategy by providing richer constituent insights, segmentation, communications and reporting, resulting in a greater ROI.
