Here’s What We Do

Neon One connects small to mid-sized nonprofits with the technology and resources that empower them to build a community of generosity. More than donor management, our products are designed to manage the full range of nonprofit operational needs, from marketing and revenue generation to program operations and financial reconciliation.

Little Green Light is a donor database and fundraising platform for campaign management & donor tracking. They specialize in simple tools that meet foundational needs, which makes them a common solution for new nonprofits that are looking to start building a donor base.

How We Differ

We’re a Full Feature Platform Built to Grow With You

Too many times have we seen reviews of other CRMs that mention needing to switch providers due to outgrowing the functionality. In an effort to combat this less-than-desirable outcome, Neon CRM includes nearly every functionality that you may need. Whether that’s email marketing, volunteer management, event coordination, fundraising, or moves and task management, Neon CRM has you covered. Don’t be frightened by the extension functionality, though. Neon CRM gives you the flexibility to focus on the tools and features that are mission-critical to start, then add on advanced features as you grow. That means you don’t have to worry about switching vendors down the line. Since Little Green Light specializes in tools for new nonprofits, you may find you outgrow its functionality quickly.

Robust Automation & Email Marketing Capabilities

Little Green Light has minimal automation capabilities and integrates with Zapier for Automation capabilities, and Constant Contact and MailChimp for email marketing. Once you start using automations, you’re going to want more because of all the time you’ll save. Neon CRM allows you to set custom automation rules and forget the pesky redundancy of receipting and thank-you notes. On top of that, our robust email marketing module gives you the tools to set up automations based on specific criteria. You can easily engage potential donors, for example, while also stewarding current donors–it makes donor retention a breeze!

Comprehensive Implementation and Data Migration Support

Switching platforms often comes with a lot of fears. It can be a complex process, so we made sure our implementation process is as easy as pie! As a new client, you are enrolled in our 90-day implementation course to teach you everything you need to know about navigating and using the platform. And, if you feel like you need extra support, you can always lean on our implementation consultants. Additionally, we offer several data migration packages so you can choose the perfect option for your organization. Little Green Light offers a DIY migration plan—which is a great option if you have either no data or a simple data set—but does not offer data migration support.

Support Center

Equipped with dozens of help articles and videos, our Support Center provides you with easy to follow how-to articles on everything in Neon CRM. If all else fails, you can always submit a ticket to our support team directly.

Customer Support

All of our packages come equipped with unlimited ticket support. On top of that, we offer 4-5 live group trainings per week for our customers to learn more about new release features and best practices using Neon CRM. If you ever feel that you need additional support, we offer live chat and phone support options for a small monthly fee, plus you can always purchase extended training hours with our professional services team.

Neon One Academy

As a Neon One customer, you gain access to Neon One Academy which is a database of hundreds of modules from orientation, to detailed CRM courses, and quick reference articles and videos. Whether you’re looking for a more in depth course on how to onboard a new feature, or a quick bite-sized refresher video on how to add a new user, Neon One Academy has everything you could need to succeed.

Suggestion Portal

We offer our customers a portal to submit ideas for new product ideas and enhancements. Within the portal, you can peruse the forum to see what your fellow Neon CRM users have already submitted and which stage those ideas are in, and vote on your favorites. Our product team is constantly reviewing the portal to help inform our product roadmap.

Switching to Neon CRM

The Easiest Data Migration Yet

To guarantee a smooth data migration experience for every Neon CRM user, our packages include essential onboarding components such as orientation for goal-setting and basic training, as well as assistance with data migration to seamlessly import your legacy data into Neon CRM. We also offer configuration support to tailor the platform to your specific needs.

Since your data is one of your most valuable assets, our team of experts will collaborate with you to ensure it’s meticulously organized, properly formatted, and readily available for use at the jump. Additionally, extended training is available as an optional add-on that can be purchased to address any specific requirements you may have.

Overcoming Common Objections

Is Revenue-Based Pricing Actually More Cost-Effective?

Most platforms employ record-based pricing, which often hinders growth opportunities for nonprofits due to concerns about being pushed into a higher pricing tier. Such a transition can result in unexpectedly higher costs the moment you gain a new donor or newsletter subscriber. Our revenue-based pricing model eliminates the obstacles of unexpected price increases, empowering your organization to plan your budgets with greater ease. Our pricing model gives you the freedom to grow without fear or limitations.

Do I Really Need All These Bells and Whistles?

While you may not require certain features or modules today, disregarding them entirely can restrict your future potential. It is crucial not to constrain your ability to grow and scale rapidly and cost-effectively. This is why Neon CRM is designed to cater to your current needs while also offering the necessary flexibility for future expansion. Opting for the cheapest solution now could ultimately result in missed growth opportunities and wasted time in the long run.

Aren’t All Data Migrations the Same?

Not everyone provides our level of data importation, migration support, and training. However, we know your data forms the foundation of your donor relationships. That’s why we’ve adopted a customized approach to data migration to ensure the uniqueness and cleanliness of your data is maintained. This prevents the need for expensive enrichment services in the future. When you go through our data migration process, you’ll be more efficient, your data will be more usable, and you’ll be able to get up and running more quickly.
