  18. EXAMPLES

  19. LISA, THE OVERWHELMED USER Lisa is a 31 year old

    female that graduated with a bachelors degree. She has a passion for helping and has only been working with her organization for a couple of years. Lisa is overwhelmed by the amount of resources available to her, and because of this she lacks focus at her job. She uses Qgiv from the office on her desktop computer where she also reads online blogs and competitor resources for useful information. She's somewhat tech-savvy and has baseline knowledge of using computers and browsing the internet. She currently spends about 6-8 hours per day on her computer. Currently, her organization (which processes less than $50,000/year) uses several services to manage their online fundraising and she is looking to find a streamlined, all-in-one solution. She needs something that is simple to use, but can scale up as they grow. She really enjoys using Qgiv, but is not sure how to utilize it best.
