Good Done Great Makes Greater Impact With Progress Pacific

Social enterprise increases contract sizes with help of cloud-based solution

ORLANDO, Fla. & BEDFORD, Mass.--()--Progress (NASDAQ: PRGS) today announced that Good Done Great, a social enterprise that’s simplifying charitable giving, has nearly tripled its contract sizes in part due to its deployment of its Progress® Pacific™ platform. The company is also helping to increase engagement in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs by making it simpler for employees to participate in company sponsored giving and volunteering programs.

Increased Employee Engagement

Organizations turn to Good Done Great to help navigate the complexities of corporate and workplace giving. Research shows that strong CSR programs help to attract and retain talent yet, employees seeking to apply for a volunteer grant or matching gift program from their employer must typically complete a complex and mostly manual submission process. This is a deterrent and results in low participation.

With the Progress Pacific platform, Good Done Great is able to automate the process by deploying applications in its own private cloud, making it simple and quick. This makes joining an employer’s CSR program effortless, and conveys to participants that their company is supporting their cause, thereby increasing employee engagement. For example, a major financial institution saw a five fold increase in the amount of volunteer grant money awarded in the three quarters since deploying Good Done Great’s cloud-based application.

With these powerful IT tools, Good Done Great’s clients can leverage their giving or CSR efforts, to build highly-effective programs and campaigns and engage their stakeholders, all while driving results that enable both business and society to prosper.

Business Growth

The Progress Pacific platform also enables Good Done Great to address the needs of large, multinational and global organizations through more robust functionality and native multilingual support. This has led to larger contracts and a surge in business growth. Today, Good Done Great counts among its clients leading companies such as Gulfstream, TEDCO, Marriott, Staples, and Driscoll’s, a leading supplier of fresh berries.

Looking Forward

Good Done Great is currently integrating the Progress Easyl® tool for better data preparation and to enable its clients to combine and analyze cloud data from multiple sources. This will help the team grow their offering and meet a critical customer pain point: data integration. Also, using a Progress API, Good Done Great is now considering how to support mobility.
