The Tow Foundation is built on the simple but bold principle of investing in positive outcomes, and technology investments are no exception. With Skuid, The Tow Foundation reinvented how they managed grants and relationships, accelerated their Salesforce Lightning migration, and positioned their organization for growth.
The Tow Foundation realized that the grants management systems they were working with focused only on transactions, and not on connecting partners to build collective impact, or on managing the relationships they love. The Tow Foundation installed Salesforce to better manage their relationships, but they soon found that they had additional customization needs. They also needed to be able to make those customizations quickly in-house, and adapt instantly.
The Tow Foundation chose Skuid to consolidate multiple disconnected and manual applications, processes, and reports into one unified application. Users can now get high-level visibility into operations and manage each relationship according to its unique needs—all without leaving the app. Collaboration between the foundations and its grantees is also simplified because multiple users can log into an application at once, and work together.
Since they moved their Skuid app to Lightning, The Tow Foundation can continue to innovate, while receiving all of the benefits of future Salesforce updates. The transition from Classic to Lightning with Skuid took just hours.
With the new Skuid and Lightning solution, the foundation has taken off three weeks in their grant cycle processes and are able to implement suggestions grantees make in a short amount of time.
