Convio Posts Record Annual Revenue, Positive Cash Flow and Profitability
In 2008, Convio also introduced Convio Go!, an innovative new program designed to help resource-constrained nonprofits achieve online fundraising and outreach success, allowing staff to focus their efforts and expertise on programs and services.
The Convio Open Initiative continued to pick up steam in 2008. The initiative leverages open technology standards to integrate and connect technologies and applications to provide flexibility, improved integration and extended reach for today’s nonprofit organization. Organizations have used Convio APIs (applications programming interfaces) to link their technology to the world around them. In addition, extensions have allowed the sharing of data and other integration with Facebook, Flickr, Google Maps, YouTube®, Plaxo and others. These technology links extend and open nonprofits to today’s modern technology without the hassles and headaches of programming and development.
“Client success from our comprehensive suite of applications and the introduction of Common Ground, plus our focus on innovative, open technology helped drive our 2008 performance,” said Austin. “While we understand that 2009 brings a challenging economic environment, we enter 2009 in a very strong position with a comprehensive offering of software and services that are changing the way nonprofits build relationships and drive results.”
