Welcome to resources for Nonprofits Software Advisement!
Welcome to the SmartThoughts site. We realize that you have a choice in where you gain insight into running your nonprofit (association, charity, faith-based, museum etc.) more efficiently. On this site, we hope to do just that.
The company was founded after witnessing first-hand the challenges in making sound business software purchasing and implementation decisions over the last decade in the nonprofit sector. As a result of this experience, we are committed to an agnostic approach and plan to use our combined industry experience and valued strategic partner resources to help educate and align our nonprofit clients with the proper vendor partner based on the information we have curated over the last 20 years in the nonprofit software industry.
Our mission is helping nonprofit software buyers, sellers, & service providers connect in the spirit of collaboration to provide solutions. This mission is due in large part because we believe that the software buying process is dysfunctional at best. Today, we have so much information yet making a good software deicsion is sometimes an elusive process.
We have formed after listening for the past decade to the market’s needs. We believe that there is a better way to assess technology needs and ultimately procure the technology to help automate a business.
We are striving to change the software procurement process each and every day. We believe that in order to help our buyer clients we must help the software vendors who deliver solutions too. Like software, there is no perfect solution. But, we are trying to make it better!
