Nonprofit Organizations and Higher Education Institutions of all sizes collect large volumes of data about their donors, volunteers, advocates, subscribers, operations and programs. As with their brethren in the for-profit world, much of this data resides in databases, spreadsheets and external systems that make it difficult to really create a 360-degree view of their organization.

Now, with the availability of the Salesforce Analytics Cloud, these organizations now have a platform to view that data, gain insights about their constituents and leverage the Salesforce platform to act and improve outcomes. While Salesforce Enterprise Edition, Nonprofit Starter Pack (NPSP) and NGO Connect come equipped with many reports and dashboards, Wave takes it a step further. It allows you to drill down to any data point, helping you visualize Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to spot trends. Want to know if a particular fundraising campaign is working? Wave can help! Wave lets you see these trends immediately, allowing you take action quickly! It comes with the security that you would expect from Salesforce, keeping all of your data safe. Customized apps can be built to help your fundraisers and staff on any device – mobile phones, tablets, even your watch. To learn more about Wave Analytics or to view a demo, click here.

Our team is here to help you take advantage of all Wave has to offer. We offer packages ranging from a simple and straightforward implementation of the application, to integration with multiple data sources and custom training options to make sure all of your team is on the same page and able to maximize all the benefits Wave has to offer your organization.


Quickstart Our Analytics for Good Quickstart Service is designed to quickly help organizations get up and running on the Analytics Cloud by focusing on a core data set (either on the Nonprofit Starter Pack 3.0 or Volunteers for Salesforce), delivering a set of Lenses and 2 Dashboards based on templates provided by Cloud for Good and which are optimized for use on desktop and mobile devices (using the Salesforce Analytics app).

Organizational Analytics

This service package takes the organization beyond analytics for a single subject area and begins providing insight across the client’s operations. Cloud for Good will work with the client to provide analytics across two to four different functional areas (e.g. fundraising, marketing, finance, volunteers) or on a more complex underlying data set (e.g. NGOC, an external data source, Efforts to Outcomes).

Custom Analytics

For those organizations with even more complex needs, Cloud for Good will work with the client to determine the scope and depth of their needs.

Our Salesforce-certified consultants have experience with Wave and will work with you to implement this powerful analytics solution. We have worked with many nonprofits over the years and want to help you unleash the power of the Salesforce Analytics Cloud to further your mission. Having access to more metrics and KPIs will help you focus on what is working and tweak what may not currently be working for you.
