So maybe Lynda Little at The Place: Charlestown Community Centre is exaggerating just a bit when she says “I practically live and breathe by it.” By it she is referring to Calxa and the change it bought to their organisation.

Since integrating their Connecting Up donated Calxa Premier, Lynda has saved many hours of blood, sweat and tears. “It is very reassuring to have something which helps me keep an eye on our very scary budget. It is just brilliant in allowing us to forecast and manage our budget.” She loves providing the Board with the easy to read reports. And now with the new charts she is finding reporting on trends that much easier.

The Place is an experienced Connecting Up donation recipient. It brings together seniors and work experience participants in their computer training room. You can tell Lynda is a fan, “Thanks to the donations made by Microsoft and Symantec the computer room actually exists. It wouldn’t be there without their generous donations we would only have the bare essentials just for permanent staff.”
