The donorflex team has hit the road for 2018s season of Regional User Group roadshows.
The roadshows are timed to run before GDPR becomes law on Friday, May 25, and are delivering our customary day of insight and information on donorflex 11 and the enhancements that will come with donorflex 11.1.
If the engagement of almost 50 delegates at the opening event, the Midlands gathering at Birminghams beautiful Midlands Arts Centre, is anything to go by, the combination of insight and demonstration struck a chord.
GDPR, of course, takes centre-stage. Since the new version was released, last September, clients have increasingly taken stock of the demands of the new era and begun to finalise their internal processes and protocols for managing issues like preferences and consent.
The insights and needs emerging from those client discussions around the UK are driving the next stage of donorflex development, meaning that the system is about to evolve even further as it will continue to, while GDPR settles down and charities thoughts, confidence and experience advance.
Heres how the agenda shapes up....
- 8.30-9.20am: Registration
- 9.20-9.30am: Welcome / House-keeping
- 9.30-10.45am: Session 1
- donorflex 11.1 timeline (how donorflex development especially the Preferences & Consent module has unfolded since donorflex 11 was released in September, 2017)
- donorflex 11.1 developments revealed
- The session will focus on:
