Convio Adds Trial Version

Convio Inc., a publisher of on-demand customer relationship management software for non-profit organizations, reported Wednesday that it has released a free trial version of its latest Web-based CRM offering. The Austin, Texas-based business said the application, called Common Ground, was built and natively delivered on salesforce.com's Force.com Platform. Designed to track all interactions with donors and other supporters, Common Ground utilizes cloud computing and is delivered as a software-as-a-service that integrates with other Convio applications, including the company's online fund-raising and marketing tools. Convio said Common Groundís features include donor management, online marketing integration and custom reporting. Convio added that organizations can register for a free, 30-day trial and begin using the software immediately. Once the trial period has expired, however, licensing starts at $100 per named user seat per month.
