Bloomerang Customer Spotlight – Agapé Therapeutic Riding Resources


Hi, my name is Amanda Bocik and I am the Exectuive
Director here at Agapé Therapeutic Riding Resources. We provide equine-assisted activities and
therapies for a variety of people, whether that’s a company looking for leadership development
tools, or its for someone with a type of disability. And so we teach riding and horsemanship skills
through various activities, whether that’s doing groundwork with horses such as grooming,
or spending time them and then processing that, to teaching someone how to ride. And
in teaching them to ride, they then develop physically, emotionally, spiritually and cognitively. When I came to Agapé we had been using a
donor management system which was quite in-depth and robust and had a lot of functionality,
but tended to be very complicated on the user end. And when I actually came to Agapé no
one here had been using the system for several years, because no one here at the time that
I came actually understood how to use it. So essentially Bloomerang was able to provide
everything that we wanted and that we used to have, but was incredibly more user-friendly,
much more intuitive and not as cluttered on the front end. We can more quickly jump in
and do the job that we know we need to do, versus spending a lot of time wondering “how
can we run this report, how do we do this, and how do we track this?”
I would absolutely recommend that someone check out Bloomerang. I would also recommend
that they actually do check out other systems and compare them and see how Bloomerang differs,
because I guarantee that if someone goes in and does a demo and tests out other systems
and you look at other things, that you’ll see the great difference that Bloomerang provides.
As a nonprofit, you want the people and the vendors that you have to in a way be ambassadors
for what you’re doing and be ambassadors for your cause, and I truly believe that Bloomerang
is an ambassador for nonprofits and an ambassador for Agapé essentially, so I know they’ll
be an ambassador for your nonprofit as well.
