Even organizations with no concern for profit have Web Content Management needs, and it is this area that Convio has targeted with their next-generation content management system.Convio Content Management, also known as Convio CMS, is a full-featured and customizable web-based content management system that is designed to not only meet the diverse needs of non-profit organizations but also to scale up as the organization grows.
Non-profit organizations are becoming more and more sophisticated and they are learning to leverage the Internet for fund raising, advocacy and relationship management. Convio looks to meet these needs and differentiate their offering by tightly integrating Convio CMS with their already well-known online constituent relationship management (eCRM) application.
If you were to list the well-known non-profit organizations in the United States, the list would line up almost perfectly with Convio's client list. Convio's clients include: American Red Cross, American Diabetes Association, Easter Seals, Farm Aid, National Association of REALTORS(R) and the Sierra Club. They've got some experience in these matters.
Geoff Handy, Director of eCommunity for The Humane Society of the United States and another client of Convio's, had this to say about the newly available content management system:
"Convio's platform and hosted application model removes the technical challenges so staff can focus on our mission not technology -- yet still advance our online advocacy and fundraising goals."
