We want our entire staff to share one info system about our land and people: all our projects, donors, volunteers, partners, and opportunities. BackOffice made it easy to envision that, and then they guided us and delivered on that vision.

Anita O’Gara, Vice President

The BackOffice team was wonderful to work with and delivered LOCATE on time and under budget. LOCATE was the best choice we could have made and enables us to be much more effective.
