From a humble start at the kitchen table to an inspiring movement that touches the hearts of children; Foundation Mr. Rick has walked an impressive path. As the story goes with many successful initiatives, the success of the foundation brought not only joy and expansion but also new challenges.
With a rapidly growing number of activities and registrations, an atmosphere of dynamic excitement arose, but at the same time, a growing administrative pressure. Administrative tasks around registration processes began to upset the balance, emphasizing the need for relief in this area.
The first steps towards alleviating this administrative pressure were taken with the implementation of WordPress. Although this platform facilitated registrations neatly, it proved to be a half-full solution. The information still had to be manually extracted from the system, payments required personal control and follow-up, and there was no overarching view of the journey Foundation Mr. Rick had made over the years.
The team dreamt of a solution that could not only automate the registration and payment process but also shed light on the analytical results of their initiatives since 2017. A solution that would allow them to use their resources more efficiently, focus their dedicated volunteers on the core activities of the foundation, and utilize their data to get even more schools onboard.
And so began the search for an integrated system; one that could guarantee seamless registrations and payments and at the same time offered valuable insights to continue to grow and touch even more children’s hearts. The goal? To enable the volunteers, the real heroes of this story, to focus on what they are best at: creating unforgettable, joyous experiences for the children, while technology takes care of the background tasks.
This is the continuously evolving story of Foundation Mr. Rick; a tale of growth, adaptation, and an unstoppable passion to enrich the lives of children from all walks of life.
