From Microsoft Access to Sumac: A TechSoup
CRM Case Study

“When we used Access, Volunteer Works and Excel spreadsheets,
it would take staff nearly a month to produce one report because
manually cross-referencing spreadsheets and checking through records
is very time-consuming. Now that we have Sumac as our CRM, it takes one hour to generate a report...”

This year we upgraded to Sumac from eTapestry. We are amazed at how fast and efficient Sumac is compared to a
database that resides online. Our daily processing of communications and incoming donations has dramatically
shifted from a full-time endeavor to a quick, easy and straightforward task. Furthermore, we love the simple design of
Sumac and its visual functionality when managing queries and lists. Before Sumac, the majority of the staff stayed
far away from our database because of its over-complicated interface. Sumac has proved to be extremely accessible
to everyone working at Sky Works. We are all happy to be riding on the Sumac train!

We appreciate the prompt and courteous support that Sumac continues to provide….

I love Sumac. It has allowed me to track all of our donor’s information super easily. I purchased it originally so that
I could issue tax receipts to our donors, but have found it useful to track giving based on correspondence and
fundraising events. We started small, but as we grow so does our need to gather information. Sumac is also great
because I can manage my contact list for mailings through it. Any questions I have are answered quickly through
tech support (either via e-mail or on the phone). Sumac also provides updates regularly, so that means they’re
paying attention to their customers’ input…
