Deborah Elizabeth Finn is a Massachusetts based independent consultant who helps bridge the gap between "distraught technophic social workers" and technology. One of her current projects is consulting with the Massachusetts Council of Human Service Providers on their selection of a CMS/CRM (Content Management System/Customer Relationship Management) system vendor. Deborah is helping the organization make their selection and will then help the chosen vendor and the Council build a solid working relationship.
The Council released a Request for Proposals for the project that was crafted to include key hooks for the Open Source community and descriptions of the module types sought. They are also considering proprietary software if they determine that it best meets their needs.
Deborah hopes that a quality CMS/CRM system for the state's human service providers' association will be a showcase that can help the effort to build a state wide association of all nonprofit organizations generally.
