Since childhood, Jean and Dave Ohlerking had a dream of helping downtrodden children. Their dream became a reality in 1992 when Children’s Cup, a nonprofit which supports throwaway children in several backward communities including Swaziland, Mozambique, Honduras and Mexico was established.
Facing tremendous growth of their non-profit in recent years, Children’s Cup started using SugarCRM Professional for handling their donations’ lifecycle management. Children’s Cup had a WordPress website. Along with WordPress website, they used Open-cart as their e-commerce solution for online fundraising. They faced the trouble of handling two discrete systems simultaneously which consumed a lot of their team’s time and resulted in their business processes being highly inefficient.
Moreover, they also needed to become PCI DSS compliant which requires companies to hold the cardholder’s sensitive information with a PCI compliant hosting provider. For Children’s Cup, this was absolutely necessary as the donors made recurring payments on a monthly basis and did not want to enter their card information every time.
Children’s Cup approached Rolustech, recognizing that the company had complete command over the SugarCRM framework and had previously worked with nonprofits. Rolustech proposed and then implemented the following solutions:
WordPress Integration with SugarCRM
SugarCRM was integrated with Children’s Cup’s WordPress website. With this integration, several sections of the website were controlled from within SugarCRM. Sugar acted as a content management system.
SugarCRM Integration with Open-cart
With this integration, Rolustech achieved complete synchronization between Open-cart and SugarCRM. Now a link was established between all the information in Open-cart including customers, products, taxes and currencies and SugarCRM.
SugarCRM Integration with Authorize.Net
SugarCRM integration with Authorize.Net was also carried out. Authorize.Net enables the merchants to authorize, settle and manage credit card transactions via websites. Now the cardholder’s information was entered in Sugar but stored with Authorize.Net, making the whole system PCI compliant.
The customization including the three integrations gave Children’s Cup a unified 360 degree view of their complete system. Now the team could manage all business operations from a single system which improved the efficiency of the team and helped them focus more on their expansion plans. With a completely secure system, Children’s Cup could now expand into new communities without worrying about security compliances.
