Soapbox Events available on Salesforce.com AppExchange

Soapbox Events

Through clicks not code, Soapbox Events provides simple yet powerful online event management tools integrated with Salesforce. That combination makes it a rare bird. Just ask Justin Birdsong, Manager or Technology Product Development for the Cultural Data Project:

“Soapbox Events is a really, really excellent tool. I spent about 6 months researching different options and looked at everything from free bolt-ons to paid apps to full-scale customized consulting projects, and frankly, nothing really fit the mold unless we were prepared to spend tens of thousands.”

Now with the NGO Connect platform, organizations can use enterprise-grade CRM services in conjunction with Soapbox Engage Petitions app to jumpstart their online advocacy campaigns and save time and money.

“We’re extremely excited to bring the next generation of online advocacy to enterprise organizations using NGO Connect,” said Ryan Ozimek, CEO of PICnet.  ”For too long, large organizations needed to use outdated advocacy tools that created data silos.  Today, with the Soapbox Engage Petitions app and NGO Connect, organizations will no longer have to make a decision between best of breed advocacy tools or best of breed CRM services.  They can have both at the same time!” Read more »

Soapbox Engage: “Only tool I could find” to effectively measure program impact for nonprofit

Action for Healthy Kids faced a common dilemma at the core of every nonprofit: how to gauge impact. Specifically, as a nonprofit mobilizing thousands of volunteers to catalyze change in schools across the nation, how could they know how many schools they were touching?

In Soapbox Engage and Salesforce.com, Action for Healthy Kids found their answer:

“We purchased a list of 130,000 schools across the country and uploaded it to Salesforce.com,” explained Anthony Moss, Web and Database Manager for Action for Healthy Kids. “We then directed users to our website where they could search for the school with which they are affiliated by utilizing the Soapbox Engage Salesforce search tool.”

“Painful, painful” grant application process made easy and efficient for staff and applicants with Soapbox Engage

They adopted a powerful platform integrating with Salesforce.com in ways that have transformed core business processes.

“The process for applying for our grants has completely changed as a result of Engage,” said Anthony Moss, Web and Database Manager for Action for Healthy Kids. “It was a painful, painful thing before. We’d have to send people to Survey Monkey and dowload responses in an Excel file.”

Events management with Soapbox Engage saves “hours and hours of time” over EventBrite

Action for Healthy Kids has chapters across the country. Each of these chapters has events for which they manage online reservations.

“In the past, we had the state chapters using their own event tools, like EventBrite. Sometimes those names would get into our system and sometimes they wouldn’t,” said Anthony Moss, Web and Database Manager for Action for Healthy Kids. “For one of our bigger events, we would have hundreds of registrations. When you think about all of those Excel files that would need to be individually configured and sent to the data administrator for clean up and import…it has required hours and hours of time.”
