Recently, Judi Sohn, former Convio Common Ground staff member, current KELL Partners consultant, and all around maven of Salesforce and nonprofit technology, wrote a blog series discussing “Life After Common Ground.”
In her series, Judi provides guidance to nonprofits caught by the demise of Convio Common Ground and highlights various tools to consider, including our own Soapbox Engage.
With March nearly upon us, the year countdown will begin for Common Ground Refugees to find new homes for their constituent relationship management (CRM) system before the March 30, 2014 shut off of their services with Convio Common Ground – a shut off date that means you will no longer have access your CRM unless you have a current contract extending beyond that date.
What’s your plan for your nonprofit ahead of the March 30, 2014 shut down?
If you’re in need of one, our Convio Common Ground Refugee Assistance Email Hotline is at your disposal.
And take some time to consider the three questions each Convio Common Ground Refugee should be asking themselves as they consider alternatives that will serve their nonprofit into the future.
We’d also encourage you to review our Soapbox Engage Partners for a list of folks who can help with your migration to a new system.

In considering options, there are three important aspects of the move to take into account: 1) which CRM platform should be my new home?; 2) how will I move and who can help?; and 3) how will that CRM platform integrate with my website? Read more »
Last week, we announced the creation of the Convio Common Ground Refugee Email Hotline. We’re been proud of our operators currently standing by at firstname.lastname@example.org to assist those in need. And, with Dreamforce around the corner, we want to take the opportunity to offer emotional support as well to these displaced peoples.
A free hug and penguin will be given to all Convio Common Ground refugees attending Dreamforce. Just stop by the Soapbox Engage booth in the Salesforce.com Foundation Zone at Moscone West Level 3. Phil Penn Gwynn, our three and a half foot tall inflatable friend and non-profit accidental techie, feels your pain, understands your plight, and will fit neatly into your carry on.

As those close to us know, PICnet was borne out of the conflict in the Balkans in the 90s from a desire to assist refugees and others in need. Today’s announcement from Blackbaud that it will discontinue the Convio Common Ground platform has created a new class of refugees.
To assist nonprofits, we’ve created the Convio Common Ground Refugee Assistance Email Hotline. To learn how your nonprofit or those you care about can leverage the power of Soapbox Engage to integrate your web presence with Salesforce.com, contact us today at email@example.com.
