Orange Leap’s Latest Innovation, The Guru, Makes Sophisticated, Real-Time Reporting Fast and Easy for Nonprofits
DALLAS, March 12, 2009 — Orange Leap (formerly MPower) today announced availability of The Guru, which enables nonprofits to easily create sophisticated reports for analyzing their data in real time – a key step for taking organizational performance to the next level and beyond.
Orange Leap provides bold, innovative and easy-to-use, open source software for nonprofits to strengthen constituent relationships, accelerate fundraising and enhance other mission-critical operations.
Built on JasperServer, a leading open source, high-performance business intelligence platform and report server, The Guru is unlike any other reporting solution currently available for nonprofits. It vastly simplifies the process for collecting and analyzing data and enables an organization to create and share reports in real time with just a few mouse clicks.
This capability is extremely important for nonprofit groups which daily capture huge volumes of constituent, fundraising and operational data in multiple databases throughout their organizations. Now with The Guru, nonprofits of any size can benefit from analytical capability comparable to that enjoyed by many of the world’s largest institutions and businesses.
“Every minute spent gathering organizational performance data for analysis and distribution is a minute nonprofit professionals and their organizations could spend serving constituents or raising funds to extend their capacity to do so,” said Randy McCabe, founder and CEO of Orange Leap. “The Guru lets nonprofits get and share the information they need – quickly and hassle-free – so they can focus more resources on mission fulfillment versus wrangling with technology.”
A wizard-based, browser-accessible, and database-agnostic tool, The Guru enables virtually any nonprofit staff member to generate and share custom reports pulled from data in any system that his/her organization uses including systems for accounting, Web content management, inventory, constituent management, fundraising and more. A user can create one-time or automated, recurring reports in tabular, summary, and cross-tab or matrix formats, depending on which is most appropriate for a given need. He/she also can automate delivery to the right people at the right times, even daily, if needed.
