Fisk Brett announces SQL Server-compatible version of Progress

Howard Lake | 14 November 2005 | News

Charity software specialists Fisk Brett have announced that the new version of their fundraising database Progress is now fully compatible with SQL Server 2005, the latest version of the Microsoft SQL Server database platform.

This enhancement means that Progress users will be able to take full advantage of the new business intelligence and systems integration tools offered by SQL Server 2005.

As a result, fundraisers using Progress should gain a clearer understanding of the motivations and interests of their supporters and use this to build a closer relationship with them, and recruit more like them.

Also organisations using Progress will be able to share data “easily and securely” with other systems or their website, saving time and money, and improving accuracy.

Fisk Brett’s Technical Director, Ben Brett said: “The new features of SQL Server 2005 provide a really cost effective way for organisations using Progress to gain a greater understanding of their donors and supporters and streamline their business processes.”

Progress is currently used by over 180 UK charities and associations for fundraising, membership, and general management of supporters and other contacts.
