AmCham Foundation taps NetSuite for social programs

Cloud provider NetSuite has announced that the American Chamber Foundation Philippines, the socio-civic arm of the American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines, has deployed NetSuite’s cloud solution for ERP and customer relationship management (CRM) to improve its effectiveness in financial management, fund raising and member engagement.

By implementing NetSuite to replace Sage 300 ERP (formerly Sage ERP Accpac) and multiple Excel spreadsheets, the nonprofit foundation has dramatically increased its efficiency and productivity.

As a result, AmCham Foundation Philippines is able to channel more time and energy into its core mission of promoting corporate social responsibility among its more than 600 member companies, including Procter & Gamble, Ford Motor, UPS, and NetSuite.

AmCham Foundation Philippines received the NetSuite solution as a software grant from the NetSuite.org corporate citizenship program, which offers free and discounted subscriptions to qualified nonprofits and social enterprises.

Since its founding in 2008, the NetSuite.org corporate citizenship program has empowered more than 500 nonprofits and social enterprises with tools to amplify their impact in making the world a better place.

SuiteVolunteers, a signature NetSuite.org program that offers pro bono volunteer services from NetSuite employees to organizations receiving software donations, worked with the AmCham Foundation Philippines on implementing the NetSuite solution in a two-phase approach.

Initial deployment of NetSuite CRM technology in 2014 was followed by the implementation of NetSuite Financials/ERP system in early 2015, with optimization and training provided by the SuiteVolunteers team.

“NetSuite’s integrated CRM and ERP capabilities bring together our donor and financial data and have had a profound impact on our organization,” said Jun Salipsip, executive director for AmCham Foundation Philippines.

“We have a single unified system of record for all our information. It makes managing financials much faster, easier and more accurate and made it much easier for us to get in touch with members and potential donors because all the information is in a single database that’s easy to use.”

With its previous environment, AmCham Foundation Philippines experienced time-consuming manual data consolidation and was struggling to achieve the real-time data environment necessary to drive its fundraising efforts for a variety of educational, health, disaster relief, environmental and other socioeconomic programs.
