Project Partners, LLC Implements NetSuite, Helps Human Rights Non-Profit Improve Campaigns and Collaboration Worldwide
World Issues and Actions Center (WIAC) Replaces Tedious Manual Processes with NetSuite Cloud
HALF MOON BAY, Calif., June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Project Partners, LLC, the experts in solutions for project-centric organizations, announced that the World Issues and Actions Center (WIAC), based in Los Angeles, California, has significantly improved operational efficiencies and enabled better utilization of employee resources since implementing NetSuite. NetSuite enables instant visibility into critical business information for WIAC, providing consistent donor data and accurate campaign planning to further focus fundraising. NetSuite’s integrated accounting and reporting has saved significant time and costs over prior manual methods, and self-service reporting delivers the information WIAC’s international team needs to manage its worldwide human rights campaigns.
The WIAC selected Project Partners’ management consultants to assess its operations and recommend systems that would provide immediate return on investment, saving WIAC more money than the system cost.
Project Partners analyzed WIAC’s existing system, consisting of Intuit® QuickBooks® and Microsoft® Excel(TM) and identified the following challenges.
- Manual tracking using spreadsheets consumed hundreds of labor hours annually
- No ability to work collaboratively with staff and volunteers around the world
- Non-integrated data streams from QuickBooks and Excel made it difficult to place financial controls on these independent processes
- Lacked ability to automatically produce reports by campaign and donor
- Poor planning abilities made fundraising difficult
With its cloud-based architecture, Project Partners implemented NetSuite in just under one month. WIAC’s end users around the world quickly accepted and adopted NetSuite, and WIAC immediately recognized increases in collaboration among its staff.
“Project Partners exhibited forethought for assessing and planning out our needs now and into the future,” said Jules Boyele, president of the World Issues and Actions Center. “Prior to NetSuite, we had no real system to communicate internally outside the sharing of e-mails, and static reports to collaborate efforts and campaigns. Now with NetSuite, we are planning our first collaborative fund raising event, working with staff and volunteers in real time around the globe, while improving communications and donor activities. NetSuite can enable the World Issues and Actions Center to scale seamlessly, as we plan to reach our vision of being a major international non-profit. We are truly grateful to Project Partners for illustrating the value and cost benefits of NetSuite.”
