We've talked a lot about mobile apps during the App It Up project. But apps come in many other forms. Browser plug-ins, widgets, web apps, and templates: all of these are apps, too. And they all have the potential to help your organization do its work more efficiently and easily.
That's why we’re excited to highlight two great (non-mobile) apps built by and for nonprofits, over on our App It Up page.
Virtual Aid Drive is a set of web-based online fundraising and donation drive management tools. It's a cloud-based tool, built on the Windows Azure platform. Virtual Aid Drive helps organizations run drives to collect food, books, clothing, and other needed items.
The cool twist? Virtual Aid Drive does away with the collection boxes and shelves full of donated items and replaces them with an easy-to-set-up, easy-to-run online drive.
Virtual Aid Drive was created by Aidmatrix, a nonprofit organization that develops technology, processes, and partnerships to increase the efficiency of gathering and distributing humanitarian aid.
Do you find yourself exporting donation data from your relationship management or fundraising software, then manually entering it into your financial management software? CRM to QB Link is an app that is specifiically designed to address this duplicate and error-prone effort.
The app helps you quickly convert and integrate donation data from Microsoft Dynamics CRM into QuickBooks financial management software (QuickBooks and other Intuit software is available through TechSoup).
This app was created by NPower Northwest, a nonprofit capacity-building organization that provides technology consulting, training, and resources to other nonprofits.
Do you have any nifty widgets, plug-ins, or web apps that help your organization do its work? Or any widgets, plug-ins, or other apps you wish you had? Please tell us about it in the comments!
