AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Jan 10, 2012) - KELL Partners has kicked off the new year with a wave of momentum, announcing today that the company has reached a new milestone by engaging with nonprofit organizations on more than 300 Convio Common Ground® and Convio Luminate™ projects.
Founded in 2008 by Sandra Jensen and Kevin Burpo, KELL Partners has built a strong reputation throughout the nonprofit industry as the go-to team for software-as-a-service (SaaS) technology implementations and consulting. The Austin, TX-based consulting firm has worked with more than 500 nonprofit organizations to ensure they receive maximum value from their investments in SaaS technology, including Common Ground, Luminate, and Salesforce.com™. New clients acquired during the fourth quarter of 2011 include Columbus Council on World Affairs, Girlstart, LifeWorks and Mission of Hope.
"Reaching the 300 milestone for Convio Common Ground and Convio Luminate projects shows that a growing number of organizations have confidence in KELL's technology guidance and services," said Sandra Jensen, co-founder of KELL Partners. "We value our partnership with Convio, and look forward to continuing to work together as we help nonprofits more effectively use technology to achieve their missions in 2012 and beyond."
KELL Partners' Kickstart program, which launched in early 2011, strongly contributed to the company's growth and pace of new client engagements. KELL Kickstart is a first-of-its-kind quick deployment package for nonprofits that accelerates Common Ground and Luminate implementations. The company also offers a Kickstart program for Salesforce.com. Designed for organizations with minimal database customization needs, Kickstart provides nonprofits with the most cost-effective and fastest path possible to be up and running with their new constituent relationship management system.
