ASI Successfully Concludes First ‘Focus on Fundraising’

Non-Profit Executives Discuss Their Organizations’ Fundraising Goals, Technology Use, Strategic Plans and Performance Objectives

ALEXANDRIA, Va., (July 11, 2011)—Advanced Solutions International (ASI), the leading global provider of web-based software for member- and donor-based non-profits, recently led the first ‘Focus on Fundraising’ iMIS Business Excellence Forum (iBEF) Symposium. Held at the Association of Fundraising Professionals’ (AFP) headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, the conference brought non-profit executives in organizations using iMIS together to discuss their fundraising goals, strategic plans and how they see the marriage between fundraising and technology evolving. Attendees also mapped out how their organizations can better leverage iMIS and their technology to improve performance and meet their business objectives.

The iBEF program is designed to help ASI’s customers maximize their investments in iMIS by improving overall organizational productivity, increasing revenue and/or reducing expenses. The complimentary ‘Focus on Fundraising’ Symposium was designed to give non-profit executives a venue to discuss industry trends, challenges and organization-specific needs with peers and ASI management. This dialogue becomes the foundation for stronger business relationships and iMIS product development plans.

The first ‘Focus on Fundraising’ iBEF Symposium featured case study presentations from Chi Omega Foundation, Guide Dog Foundation, Respiratory Health Association of Metropolitan Chicago, Catholic Diocese of Arlington and Salesian Missions. ASI partner GoLightly also led a session on how non-profits can leverage social media in their fundraising initiatives, and interact with and engage donors using iMIS.

“With our first iBEF fundraising conference, we wanted to provide our customers with a chance to focus on their fundraising goals, find out what their peers are doing with iMIS and discover new ways to take advantage of their technology,” said Bob Alves, chairman and CEO of ASI. “ASI is pleased with the success of this Symposium. The participating organizations gained insight from one another and found new ways in which iMIS can help them achieve their fundraising objectives. At the same time, we had an opportunity to get closer to our customers and understand how non-profits want to use technology to achieve their performance objectives.”
