To support its continued growth, Buglife – the Invertebrate Conservation Trust – has implemented Harlequin Software for CRM, fundraising and membership management.
Buglife is a growing membership-based charity with 1200 members, 20 staff, 12 volunteers and 17.2K Twitter followers. In four years it has tripled its income to £1.6 million. Investing in charity management software was a key business objective for the charity as it looks to modernise its back-end operations, integrate information and further widen its reach.
Paul Hetherington, Director of Fundraising and Communications at Buglife explains: “We needed software that is easily accessible for all staff so we can finally use one system for all contacts, which will wean us away from filing cabinets stuffed with ancient correspondence. Harlequin will support our CRM strategy, campaign management, membership process and fundraising activity.”
Tom Ellis, Managing Director of Harlequin adds: “Like many expanding charities, Buglife had got to the tipping point where they needed robust software to facilitate more efficient ways of working. They are an incredibly enthusiastic team and everyone is keen to make the most of the system.”
