AGH Strategies offers different levels of training, support, and development, depending on your needs, experience and goals, and we often work with in-house developers, or other outside web vendors to help build new solutions, or maintain your existing workflows. Our comprehensive support & hosting plans start at just $210 per month, with options to include additional time per month to meet your team’s needs.
Small or large, organizations ﬁnd it helpful to have a partner in implementing and using CiviCRM. With phone and email support included in all of our available plans, we’re here for everything from technical assistance to best practice sharing on a day-to-day basis. Because we work collaboratively, each member of our team will be able to lend a hand when you need it—from server management, to Civi configuration, to Drupal, Joomla, or WordPress optimization.
When it comes to training, with a variety of formats and deep experience in the nonproﬁt sector, our trainers can work with you to help get the most our of your investment. Our goal is for you to feel as self-sufficient with your workflows as you want to be, with sustainable practices that make each member of your team feel confident in their role. We offer all clients the option to schedule strategy meetings with our team, an open-ended conversation to dig into what’s working, what isn’t, and how we can close the gap to make the most of your investment in CiviCRM.
We can build a training plan to match how you use CiviCRM and your CMS—Drupal, Joomla, or WordPress. With a variety of formats and deep experience in the nonprofit sector, our trainers can work with you to jumpstart adoption of your CRM, introduce new features, or orient new staff. Available to travel to your office, we can help you make the most of your investment in CiviCRM.
Webinar training is an affordable alternative to on-site training, especially if your staff is spread among several locations. It’s also a good option for a series of shorter trainings in addition to or in place of an on-site training if you’re outside the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area. We can provide how-to sessions using your own site so everything is immediately familiar when it comes time to apply what you learn.
A strength of CiviCRM is that it integrates all the ways you connect with your supporters. The real power, however, comes in the ways it can be extended to meet your speciﬁc needs. Customizations can be something as small as adding membership status to the summary tab or job titles to the relationship list on a contact record. Our experience makes it easier to build out the custom functionality you’re looking for. We frequently extend features to be included in new versions of CiviCRM, and we can work with you to design and build customizations to handle nearly anything—and we can advise you on the tradeoffs and pitfalls involved in various options.
CiviCRM is a complete tool for connecting with your organization’s supporters, but it also requires a full set of server tools. From email delivery to secure hosting, a website with CiviCRM has more robust requirements than a Drupal or WordPress site on its own. Hosting with AGH Strategies gives you a platform backed by our combined decades of experience supporting CiviCRM. Our hosting includes:
- VPS with 4 GB of dedicated RAM and a dual-core processor
- 80 GB of solid-state drive storage
- Up to four upgrades per year
- Self-renewing SSL certificate
- Unlimited sites up to the storage limit
- Daily on-site backups, and off-site backups to our included backup hosting
- Up to 1,500 emails per month through SendGrid, or $5 per month towards larger email packages
Implementing CiviCRM for the first time? Our team will learn about your organization’s operations, data needs, and website status, and we plan an installation that meets your current needs and future possibilities. For most organizations, the cost of hiring CiviCRM professionals is signiﬁcantly less than the lost staff time of tinkering with it yourself or dealing with a system that doesn’t match your work process.
