Ann's Place Technology Update!

My name is Robbie and I’m the web and events technology specialist here at Ann’s Place!  My job is to work behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly across the organization by finding and facilitating improvements through technology and I wanted to share some of the exciting things that are going on here at Ann’s Place with you!

A New Face for a Changing World!

We’ve made some changes to our website - if you haven’t had a chance yet to look around the new www.annsplace.org take a second to check it out!  You may not notice it right away, but we’ve made improvements to provide a more user friendly experience for you no matter what device you’re viewing the website on. 

Did you know that desktop browsing is no longer the number one method of digital content consumption in the United States?  Don’t believe me?  Check out this article on here on CNN

To meet this evolving demand our new site is responsive.  This means that the layout will change depending on what devices you’re viewing it on in order to best present the content of our site!  There are a number of other benefits on the back end that help me, and the whole staff here, deliver to you fresh and dynamic content.

We’ve made our site easier to get around no matter how you view it, we’ve also made it more useful for you.  Check out our improved and secure online donation & sponsorship forms, now offering an instant email acknowledgements for your tax records and instant notification of your donation to your loved ones. 

Keep an eye on annsplace.org as it continues to evolve! 

Doing our Best for our Donors

Ann’s Place relies on donors!  Any donation, no matter how big or how small, plays a part in the mission of Ann’s Place.  We are constantly grateful for the immense support from our community year in and year out – and we want to make sure you know how much we appreciate you.  But man is it a lot of paperwork! 

Recently, Ann’s Place went live with a new donor tracking software, Little Green Light.  This powerful web-based fundraising tool has been designed to streamline internal practices at Ann’s Place, leading to faster donation acknowledgements and improved insight about how, why, and who is giving to Ann’s Place.

Little Green Light is a valuable tool driving efficiency up while keeping costs low and the office organized - all for the benefit of the clients of Ann’s Place.

Caring for our clients

We’re not done yet – but we will be soon – I wanted to share a little bit of the improvements to come! Supporting our existing and expanding community is of the upmost importance to us here at Ann’s Place.  We’ve been working hard for the past several months thinking of ways to use technology to give our clients the best experience possible at Ann’s Place.  

The clients of Ann’s Place can look forward to online & kiosk registration for clinical programs and activities!  This new system, which is quickly wrapping up development and is on track for release before the end of this year, will lead to a better and faster activity sign up experience at home and in the building - as well as improved insight about how we can better serve its clients. 

I wont spill all the beans yet!  But look forward to greater accessibility to all of the great offerings at Ann’s Place in the future. 

Thanks,
Robbie Siemon
