"Without BrightVine's technical and functional know-how, our Blackbaud CRM™ 
Implementation wouldn't have run as smoothly as it did. Their experience and expertise allowed us to create solutions where no one else could."

Each organization we work with is unique, so we want to go beyond generic system-based courseware, to design business-specific role-based documentation and training that applies to each member of your team. We cover the full gamut, offering the following options to mix and match for your best fit:

  • Process Documentation

  • Train the Trainer

  • Go-Live User Training

  • Post-implementation Support

  • Refresher Training and New Hire Onboarding

  • Self-Service Support


Select any combination of your favorite styles of delivery: in-person, webinar, video, curriculum courseware, job aids, and presentation materials. We can suggest subject-matter toolkits for the Developer team, User Support team, Trainers, and for the Users themselves. The resulting combination of documentation and delivery fits your team, your roles, and your organization’s use of Blackbaud CRM™. Together we will lay out a learning strategy, build the syllabus, and design the documentation library.


Providing your team with fully customized support resources is an excellent way to ensure their continued use of the system. When CRM changes, the scariest thing for Users is not knowing how to do their jobs with the tools they have. Tailoring instruction and support to their roles will help them connect with the system changes, and give them the context and reference to hit the ground running.
