- You prefer low monthly payments with the option to cancel at any time.
Retreat Suite Custom
We can build a complete custom solution for you with all the features of Retreat Suite.
A custom system allows you total control of design, features, site language and layout. It also allows us to model existing processes you follow and adapt Retreat Suite to them. If you have existing systems used for donor management, outreach and mailing lists, we can build connectors to them to make Retreat Suite operate seamlessly with your existing systems.
Our design process starts with a comprehensive analysis of your current processes and systems and how best to fit Retreat Suite into them. The core advantage of a custom system is that Retreat Suite adapts to you, not the other way around.
Our custom systems often pay for themselves within a couple years when compared to our hosted option, but you are left with a no-compromise solution tailored just to you.
Here are a few examples of Retreat Suite Custom sites
Choose Retreat Suite Custom if:
- You have existing systems you want to preserve, or a complicated existing web site.
- You prefer flexibility.
- You need more than 5 staff or volunteers to have editing access to the site.
- You can afford a larger up-front investment.
To see if a custom system is right for you, just contact us. We can do a brief investigation together and recommend which would be best for you.
