The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (CEIP) relied on a combination of Microsoft Dynamics, spreadsheets, and systems managed by individual teams in order to manage and report on critical information across their global organization.

CEIP needed a well-tailored CRM to serve as the organization’s single source of truth regarding internal and external activities, including thought leadership via events and published communications, development efforts and forecasting, relationship management with high-profile constituents, and more.
