What is Furtal?
Furtal is a technology company that creates software that helps a variety
of organizations. We specialize in helping schools, colleges, universities,
PTAs, PTOs, and other school-related groups transform their fundraising, communication, community involvement and advocacy programs to goal achieving programs rather than goal setting programs.
What Makes Furtal Different?
Many factors make Furtal stand out from the standard online fundraising company, but the main factor that makes Furtal different than the best online affiliate marketing companies is Furtal’s passionate belief in the need for, and effective implementation of, client focused, after signup, boots-on-the ground.
Unlike other fundraising technology companies, Furtal not only maintains experienced marketing professionals on staff, but places experienced marketing professionals in each and every participating state to work closely with clients and their local community AFTER signup. Furtal’s face-to-face client-support marketing strategy, rather than the standard online or telephone help desk after signup, is unique in this ecommerce business sector.
Furtal not only maintains an experienced team of TECHNOLOGY and MARKETING professionals, but uniquely applies these valuable resources:
· A highly skilled, creative development team that maintains state-of-the-art knowledge and technology application, BUT…..that is driven by client needs and input, not just application of new technologies for technologies sake.
· A team of seasoned marketing professional s that are active on the ground, meeting and supporting clients face-to face, as well as playing an essential role in Furtal’s strategic and tactical planning processes.
Why is Furtal better?
Furtal’s corporate philosophy of continuous on-the-ground support, applied constantly, combined with experienced technology professionals and the business sensibilities of a corporate marketing team results in synergism……. two or more agents working together to produce a result not obtainable by any of the agents independently…..to the ultimate benefit of Furtal’s clients.
Additionally, Furtal’s unique online solutions engage both local business communities and national retailers, leverage the viral aspects of popular social networks to enhance members’ revenue generation capabilities, and provide a powerful communication platform to optimize parent/supporter involvement.
In simple terms, Furtal creates high-end websites for groups that need money, but that also want the VERY BEST technology, programming features, and continuous personal support for their users.
Organizations that are truly serious about raising the bar and achieving their ambitious goals, rather than just planning and setting goals year after year, will realize the advantages of Furtal’s philosophy of full engagement from initial partnership to goal realization.
