Volunteers of America Select Xert CM and SF to Power Development Campaigns

05.30.2002 - Alexandria, VA. Xert Communications Corp., a leading provider of integrated business software for the mid-market, today announced that Volunteers of America has licensed the Xert Contact Manager and Sales Force applications to manage, organize and optimize their prospect and donor information, and to manage their outreach and development campaigns.

Because the Xert application set is resident on Volunteers of America’s network, it can enable an integrated and consolidated platform structure for member, donor and prospecting campaigns. The Xert Suite applications will be connected throughout Volunteers of America stakeholder touch points, including information signup elements, ecommerce and donation elements, and direct campaign touch points. The Xert Suite platform will provide a full cycle contact management and campaign distribution and reporting system that will allow Volunteers of America to measure stakeholder activities from initial contact through conversion.

“Having Volunteers of America choose Xert’s platform for such a mission-critical function of their organization is very important to us,” said Dave Battaglini, CEO of Xert Communications. “Xert’s mission is to enable better, more effective stakeholder communications, whether for-profit, or not-for-profit; directly or indirectly driving revenue or delivering advocacy information, and this engagement is an achievement of that mission."

Xert SF and Xert CM are part of the Xert Infrastructure Suite; a powerful application set that streamlines and measures critical business communications processes and integrates the results into enterprise web, intranet and extranet sites. In addition to internal management of these processes, the suite connects and broadcasts the information externally to a company’s business stakeholder network: customers, partners, the public and other business enablers, providing an unparalleled, comprehensive business platform.

The Xert infrastructure suite’s interconnected modules for Contact Management, Sales and Marketing, Public Relations, and Hiring enable workflow-based, real-time information management and dissemination. The suite provides near-immediate return on investment by driving revenue and cutting operating costs.
