CiviCRM is open source Constituent Relationship Management software which you install in either your WordPress, Joomla or Drupal website and is geared towards meeting the needs of non-profit organisations and companies to manage their contacts, events, reports, memberships, donations, campaigns, case management , workshops, volunteers, recording interactions with their constituency, or any data involving their stakeholders.
The public sector can also benefit from using CiviCRM.
CiviCRM consists of the following components:
CiviCampaign enables you to link together activities, events, mailings, and contributions under one “umbrella” so that you can track the progress of all your efforts towards one programmatic goal of campaign.
CiviCase is similar to a case management system which provides your organisations with tools for structuring, scheduling and recording case activities.
CiviContribute will enable you to record and report on financial and in-kind contributions to your organisation.
CiviEvent provides integrated online event registration and management for paid and free events.
CiviGrant is used by organisations that distributes funds to others.
CiviMail is a mass-mailing component which allows you to engage constituents with personalised email blasts and newsletters. You can also send SMSs using Clickatell.
CiviMember provides the functionality to support and automate the management of memberships.
CiviPetition includes a function that lets you create a petition to publicly gather responses and information online.
CiviPledge allows for the flexibility to create various types of fundraisers. Allows to individuals to donate daily, weekly, monthly or yearly.
CiviReport allows you to create, run and schedule reports based on the data CiviCRM has about your contacts and their interactions with your organisation.
CiviSurvey enables off-line surveys by providing a standardised way to record survey responses and then generate reports from the survey data.
The CiviVolunteer extension provides tools for signing up, managing and tracking volunteers. This extension has to be installed separately.
