e-Commerce solutions to help your cause

E-Commerce Solutions for Non-Profit Organizations

The non-profit industry is unique; organizations use their surplus revenues to further their purpose or mission. From community-serving, member-serving (like unions or trade associations), or charitable organizations, they can be supported by an integrated e-Commerce solution.

If you are in this industry, organizing charities and such, you’ll know that the focus is on the cause. The platform you choose to sell items or raise funds or invite people to events should work seamlessly, efficiently, without costing you unnecessary dollars, time, and effort.

With Nav-to-Net™, non-profit organizations' more complex needs are effectively met. E-Commerce is more than just the hard-sell. While it can involve product sales, organizations can deal with membership enrollments, event registrations, program support, donations, sponsorships, licensing, recurring orders, member management, and more. Learn more about how Nav-to-Net™ considers all the nuances of your business and provides you with a comprehensive tailored webshop solution for your existing NAV.

Seamless Integration for Better Productivity

Like any solution, your e-Commerce should mean less work, not more. Tight integration to Microsoft Dynamics NAV is at the core of the solution; the technology and automation can greatly increase the productivity of any non-profit organization. The business workings behind a non-profit organization can be quite complex. Business processes and other unique customizations in your NAV need to be taken care of to make sure everything is unified and works in harmony. Website updates happen in real-time so there is never any lag or miscommunication.
