Replacing Rawhide's outdated system, we created a fully-functioning, easy to use platform.
— Rawhide Boys Ranch
The back story
Rawhide came to us needing to replace their in-house, DOS-based database with a web-based system that would provide a strong foundation for future business growth and expansion. Rawhide had previously sought out vendors to work on the replacement, but all efforts had failed.
The problem was not just their outdated DOS-based system, but also that each of Rawhide’s internal departments operated independently; having their own software, business processes, forms, record-keeping and filing systems. In addition, Rawhide believed that each of these individual systems was a necessary part of the company’s operations. Every month, dozens of reports were run to cross-check data accuracy throughout the company because nothing was integrated and paper copies were still being used in addition to the old site.

Custom Software Development + Business Consulting
An integrated business system for efficiency and accuracy.
We designed and built a new central access record systems database (CARS), which integrated all of Rawhide’s business systems. Rawhide’s way of doing business was transformed with greater efficiency and increased profitability. Employees had immediate access to all donor information entered into CARS on a real-time basis. They no longer needed to use multiple unnecessary software systems, filing processes and perform monthly reconciliation reports. In addition, donors could now complete a simple online donation form and receive an immediate, personalized email acknowledgement. They could also easily search and locate nearby drop-off locations by zip code.
