WANNA GET LEAN?

You always hear about big companies implementing information systems and saving big chunks of dough on procurement or returns or something like that. Well, I'm here to tell you it can happen on a much smaller level as well. Earlier this year, the non-profit I used to work and where I'm now on the board was featured as a case study for the company we used to set up an online community for our board members. Because everything could be accessed and routed through this centralized site, we could free up much of a staff person's time from administrating board-related correspondence; and for an organization with barely a $1.5 million operating budget, that's not an insignificant cost savings. Good to see technology solutions can help places like ours get lean, too.
