Solution Brief: SAP Fundraising Management


 

“Blue Marble re-designed our SAP Grants Management module in a way that simplified our data maintenance and derivations while expanding our capabilities and control. Brian and Casey set up grant budgeting to meet both external donor’s detailed requirements as well as provided a road map to integrate with BPC. Now we have the necessary real time budget controls, security, and sponsor reporting to roll out hundreds of our global grants. With less maintenance during the life of a grant and less reconciliation during the end of that grant’s life, WCS is able to focus more on conservation. Do it right the first time, use Blue Marble for your new SAP ERP public sector implementation.”

“Zita Scozzari’s communication skills in presenting Project Systems (PS) in the classroom was very well received by all attendees. Her ability to listen to and answer questions on the use of PS within our Public Health Command business environment is impressive. Her background and knowledge of both PS and cProjects was critical to our successful implementation. She is the consummate team player and I would not hesitate to have her again as a member of our team.”

“Blue Marble’s unparalleled experience with SAP public sector solutions made a key difference in the selection of SAP and BearingPoint over a number of implementers including IBM as our system integrator.

Blue Marble consultants also were instrumental in conversion data and balances strategy, testing, validation and execution of over 450 master data, open item, and balance load files for a ‘non-eventful’ go live. I highly recommend Blue Marble for their attention to detail, leadership, and expertise in SAP public sector. “
