Nonprofit organizations are very diverse in their mission and studies show that a majority are spending most of their time and resources on fundraising and other activities and less time on managing the organization.
For most nonprofits, committees and meetings are still the dominant way of making decisions and managing the day to day operations.

Another typical hurdle for nonprofit management is running multi-site operations. Managing and keeping in touch with local offices is not an easy task and a lot of money and resources are wasted by email, phone calls, printing services, etc. Furthermore, local management teams often feel isolated due to a lack of communication with other offices and/or the organization’s headquarters.
