Karis Community Custom CRM and Auction Software

Project Overview: Denver DataMan met Karis Community to provide training on an Access application. The problem was that the Application did not do what they wanted and was not licensed for making changes. Denver DataMan worked closely with Karis Community to understand their needs and built a system that seamlessly integrated the contact management side of their database with the event and auction management tools they need for the biggest event of the year.
