If you've found us here in our Purple Patch, well done. One of the things you'll notice is that we haven't posted on this site for a while. That's for lots of reasons.
The biggest and best reason is that earlier this year we changed our identity a little - refreshed our brand, bought ourselves some new clothes. We turned ten years old at the end of 2013, so it seemed apt timing for us to be ready for the next ten!
A part of this was the creation of a new website (Wordpress for any digital people who like to know these things). And this new website has an integrated blog. It's part of a bigger, better, clearer 'resources' section we have added to our site so we can share more with our clients, customers, followers - friends.
It is important to note that we might have a new look, but we are still the same people underneath - our service offering has always been evolving anyway but fundamentally we remain a small consultancy, committed to non profits, with a strong sense of values and what we can offer (and the customer list to back that up), we remain 'on your side', and most of us have come from non profit backgrounds so completely 'get it' when you talk about where you are coming from in terms of budget and decision making processes!
We remain independent - of course we work with partners too (Salesforce, Blackbaud et al) - but our independence means we make recommendations that are best for you, not best for other vendors.
To be honest, the only other thing that's changed than our logo is that for the first time we have a physical office base, too. Which is a good thing (even if it means taking turns washing up coffee cups!).
Now, having said all that, we are keeping this blog alive and around and online. It is important for us. It charts when key technologies and developments took place, and our advice around them. It has some great stories of fundraisiers and charity people and their superb commitment. Have a look around. Feel nostalgic.
But if you want to keep up to date with where we are at now, you might want to head over to our website - www.purple-vision.com - and check out our resources section in particular for any new posts, presentations we've made, white papers and thoughts we've had, plus useful links.
Or you can give us a call via 0845 458 0250 or drop us a note via the contact us page of our website (useful form here).
