Calxa Case Study – Charlestown Community Centre
Five Steps to Board-Ready Reports
Long term DonorTec recipient Lynda Little of The Place: Charlestown Community Centre, recently discovered how quick and easy it is to produce accurate and meaningful budgets and financial reports. Thanks to Calxa she is now able to provide the board with easy to read reports. And, as a consequence, also saving many hours during reporting periods. Getting Calxa was simple – just five days and a few simple steps is all it took.
Lynda’s diary went something like this:
Day 1: Found Calxa via DonorTec (now Connecting Up) Newsletter
“I have had such a successful relationship with Connecting Up that when Calxa appeared on their website I felt a level of confidence in its credibility.”
Day 2: The Application
“Receiving Calxa for free through Connecting Up made it an easy decision! All we had to pay were Connecting Up’s administration fees. Ordering was simple and quick.”
Day 3: Received Calxa download link and our serial number
“We received an email welcoming us to the Calxa Community and as well as receiving the product and serial number, the email discussed a number of support options such as webinars, support notes and training videos.”
Day 4: Installed Calxa and the training begun
“In order to get to know the program I read through the support notes and viewed a few of the training videos that Calxa had available on their website. Whenever we did need to speak with the support team they were always clear, easy to understand and eager to help.”
Day 5: Calxa follow up to check our progress
“When Calxa called to see how we were progressing, they were more than happy to offer additional help and support. We have been extremely impressed with the service offered and it is comforting to know we can call them at any time for further help.”
“I adore Calxa and the more I use it the more I discover. Calxa allows us to produce a variety of easy to read reports that show several different factors at the same time. This makes it easy when presenting to the board and people who may not be familiar with reading financial reports.”
“If you have been thinking about using Connecting Up to receive Calxa my message is simple: Don’t hesitate, it’s a great product, great service and a great opportunity.”
