“I worked with Kalman at Cloud for Good and he really took his time to thoroughly understand our needs and set up custom fields to address those needs. Kalman has been very patient working with me and a volunteer as me migrate to Salesforce, which has taken much longer than anyone anticipated. And he provided us with training both on Salesforce and on apps that he felt would be helpful. I would recommend Cloud for Good to any organization looking for a implementation or support consultant.”

Anne-Marie Hendrickson, Vice President –Development and Communications

“Working with Olivia at Cloud for Good was extremely fruitful for our organization. Olivia worked with us to customize Salesforce to our specific needs as an arts organization, finding innovative solutions to all of my questions.

Coming of Age: Bay Area

“We put Tal and his group through the wringer when new staff at the organization had to learn a customized system we inherited and then wanted to change. Our utter lack of knowledge in Salesforce, web site integration, and most other things IT made us very difficult clients to work with. We kept changing time lines, budget, desire, etc., etc. Tal never lost his patience, always met the moving time line target, provided clear training, and worked within our budget. He answers e-mails immediately and continues to provide much needed support at a very reasonable price (most often times free). Tal has gone above and beyond the call of duty in keeping the customer happy. He wants us to succeed and he does all he can to see that this happens.”

Noreen McKeon, Program Manager


Education Pioneers

“Our organization engaged Tal to conduct a feasibility study around reporting solutions based on predefined requirements. He has such a great pulse of the market – he’s definitely a leader in this particular space! He provided a very solid work product, demonstrated a clear ability to partner with us and listen to our needs, and completed the project on time and under budget! He’s very responsive and super easy to work with. We are pleased with the value Cloud for Good provided and will definitely look for opportunities to continue our partnership”

Sarah Doherty, Manager, Business Operations


Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights

“Our non-profit, a 44 year old Legal Services and Civil Rights organization, needed to adopt a comprehensive database. Each legal program was maintaining its own records (client intake, case management, volunteer matching, etc.) in various custom made databases and excel spreadsheets. Similarly, our communications and development department had separate record keeping systems. We were all over the place, and Tal brought us into the 21st century. We spent more than 6 months trying to find the right Consulting Partner. We received estimates from eight different potential partners. We chose Tal because of his willingness to work with us and to actually listen to what we needed and wanted. It was clear that most of the other Consulting Partners were attempting to sell us a pre-packaged system. Tal listened to us and our needs. In the end, he was able to create a very custom and absolutely comprehensive Volunteer Management, Case Management, and Donor Management system. We couldn’t be more pleased. Not only did Tal deliver a quality end product that was on time and on budget, he was very flexible and incredibly responsive. I know that us lawyers can sometimes be difficult to work with, but Tal came through like a champ and was incredibly good at working with our entire group. Tal’s customer service is unparalleled, and in terms of responsiveness, I have yet to meet his equal. I highly recommend Cloud for Good. Thanks Tal!”

Paul R. Chavez, Senior Attorney / Pro Bono Coordinator


WISE & Healthy Aging

We used Cloud For Good to implement a donor database and CRM solution for our non-profit fundraising needs. They delivered ahead of schedule and the training hit all the necessary marks. We are continuing to use them as our ability to maximize Salesforce expands to other applications within the agency, beyond our fundraising needs. I highly recommend them!”

Mitch Orlik, Executive Vice President


Yeshiva University High School (YULA)

“I work for a high school implementing its first real database. I came to Cloud for Good after using another consultant. Not only was Cloud for Good less expensive, but Tal Frankfurt from Cloud for Good helped me straighten out a lot of mistakes that had been made with our initial implementation. He responds to my (all too frequent) questions with answers that make it clear he knows Salesforce inside and out. He has also offered his opinion on the best 3rd-party apps that will help me leverage Salesforce in an appropriate, cost-conscious manner.”

Joanne Helperin, Development and Marketing Manager


The Friends of the Urban Forest

“Tal and Cloud for Good imported 30 years’ worth of complex data into a Salesforce database which they customized for Friends of the Urban Forest, a nonprofit organization in San Francisco. They went all out to make it work for us, working through nights and weekends. Tal worked within our budget and even helped us save money. Our transition from our old Access database to our new Salesforce database is going smoothly.”

Brian Tsai, System Administrator


The Leadership Academy

“Cloud for Good has just completed the design and install of our new Salesforce database. It has been a great experience working with Tal. He has been very patience and has remained flexible throughout the process. The project was delivered on-time and he was very thorough in his training. We needed a centralized system where we could access all of our data and reports. Salesforces was the perfect solution for us, not only because of the system capabilities, but also due to Tal taking the time to understand our organization and how we do our work. We will certainly be more efficient and productive going forward as a result of our partnership with Cloud for Good. Thanks so much Tal!”

Rod Moses, Director of Fellows 


Breaking the Silence

“Our small staff found using Salesforce technology a bit challenging, a challenge which Tal has handled extremely well and professionally. We particularly appreciate his constant patience, flexibility and willingness to go the extra mile.
He was clear and helpful, pointing out how our organizational needs could best be met by Salesforce technology. We are very satisfied with the service and highly recommend Tal and Cloud for Good.”

Karla Green, Director of Resource Development


Community Action Partnership

“We have an organization with little to no CRM experience, and we were able to get the support and help we need to get running with Salesforce and have questions answered as we got going. Definintely appreciate the excellent service!”

Angie Titus, Community Engagement Director


Old Town Artisan

“Tal is extremely patient and very committed to making sure his clients are satisfied with Cloud for Good. He goes the extra mile when a client misunderstands the concepts and/or doesn’t do the necessary homework to be prepared for training sessions. He is very professional, thorough, and has a good grasp of the needs of the non-profit world. Our organization had no CRM experience and Tal understood what questions to ask us in our discovery sessions to be able to develop a very useful software package. He made changes on the spot during our training to accommodate further needs as they became apparent. He clearly pointed out how to answer our own questions through the Help screen and also the Training screens.”

Nancy Haugan, Volunteer, Old Town Artisan


Mercy Street Dallas

“Tal at Cloud for Good got us off to a great start! He had already done a similar implementation for a mentoring program, so he had a good knowledge of what we do and what we needed from a CRM perspective. He was always on top of communications (we were usually the laggers) and was very fast with the implementation. I appreciated that he was almost always available for consultation. Oh! And like most, we have hands on and visual learners on our staff, so Tal flew from Memphis to Dallas to do our training in person, put in a long day, and was very flexible and positive throughout.”

Brett Vandermolen, Director of Operations


Public Trust

“I worked with Cloud for Good to implement Salesforce as a program management tool. It was a pleasure, both professionally and personally. Tal is very service oriented, and easy to work with. Not only does he have a clear understanding of the nonprofit world, he quickly understood our organization and our specific needs. Tal helped us complete the project on time and on budget – knowing we had a very restricted budget he helped us cut costs and made a point to find the best solutions while keeping the budget at a minimum . Also, working remotely on different time zones was a non-issue thanks to his flexibility and great communication.”

Shira Gottlieb, Project Manager


Gvanim Association

“Cloud for Good helped us implement Salesforce. The implementation process was not simple and Tal had amazing patience while walking us through it, step by step, until the right moment when we could take the reins and manage it on our own. I also signed up for Tal’s newsletter and I find it enriching and relevant for our department’s technical development and my personal understanding of support programs for fundraising. I warmly recommend Cloud for Good!.”

Chen Abrahams, Director of Resource Development


Youth Villages

“Cloud for Good has helped us with some pretty complex implementations in a rather large non-profit organization ($175M). Tal is knowledgeable and flexible. We are 100% satisfied with his support and would recommend him to anyone.”

Peter Abell, Assistant Director


Memphis Music Foundation

“Tal consulted with the Music Foundation to help us integrate Salesforce into our website, and we have been amazed at his knowledge of Salesforce and with the product itself. I would recommend Salesforce and Tal’s consulting to any organization looking to organize itself internally, its sales leads, external campaigns, data, calendars, etc.”
Cameron Mann, Director Music Resource Center
“It’s great to have an expert working with you. Tal was extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer all our questions quickly and thoroughly. I felt very comfortable that all my concerns were addressed and that SalesForce really will be the solution we need it to be based on the training he’s provided.
I would recommend Cloud for Good to anyone looking for a partner in Salesforce implementation!”
Elizabeth Cawein, Development and Communications Coordinator


Coming of Age: Bay Area

“Tal helped us design and customize our salesforce from scratch. He was friendly, knowledgable, and fast. He guided us along the way and made a seemingly overwhelming project very manageable. I really enjoyed working with Tal. His delivery and follow-up was impeccable.”

Janet Oh, Co-Director


Masorti Olami

“It was great to work with Cloud for Good. They have such a good understanding of non-profits and how best to use salesforce. In only a few short weeks we moved from having our data in excel sheets to a tremendously powerful integrated database of donors and supporters. Thanks so much.”

Marcus Frieze, Projects & Communications Manager


NPTech

“Tal has managed three successful salesforce implementations through his work with NPTech(Nonprofit Technology) in Israel. These implementations covered a variety of processes which Tal mapped accurately, resulting in a satisfying solution. Tal has high communication skills and a good understanding of the specif challenges nonprofit organizations face when adopting technology.”

Royi Biller, CEO


Elul

“Elul was privileged to work with Tal to implement Salesforce in our organization. We turly enjoyed working with him, even those members who are slightly “technologically challenged”. Tal displayed understanding, patience and sensitivity to our requests while delivering an excellent product on time and with a smile.”

Daniela Greiber, Director of Resource Development


Technion – Israel Institute of Technology

“I had previous attempts to work with Salesforce in other companies and they always failed because we could not utilize the full potential of the infrastructure. Working with Tal helped my team understand the kind of contribution Salesforce can bring to our organization and we are now in the process of increasing the use of Salesforce as a full CRM system for the school.”
