Choose Tools that Fit Your Reality!

Several solutions consider nonprofit organizations’ realities in their specific features or pricing, therefore effectively supporting your project management.

Here is our list of the best software for nonprofits that you need to implement in your organization.

Learning Management Systems

Nonprofits must focus on ongoing staff training experiences! Your employees and volunteers have various profiles and skills. However, training management is both costly and time-consuming, almost impossible to handle without appropriate digital solutions.

Fortunately, LMS (Learning Management Systems) are powerful talent management solutions that take care of the digital training management within your organization.

Time and Attendance Software

Time management is not always a cakewalk, especially when you have so many other goals to reach.

Fortunately, HR tools are here to automate all processes linked with time management. Time and attendance software solutions even track hours and handle changes of shifts and replacements.


Evolia is a smart scheduling and time and attendance software that allows you to manage last-minute schedule changes in just a few clicks, but also to prepare your schedules months in advance so you can plan for the future.

Evolia also adapts prices to nonprofit’s tight budgets with a preferential price per employee, allowing you to save money without compromising on the power of your digital solutions.

Payroll Software

As a nonprofit member, you have undoubtedly already faced problems concerning the management of your workforce’s payroll. Your employees’ work schedules are not always the same week after week and you often work with seasonal employees: this complexifies payroll management. If you’re tired of wasting time manually managing the payroll of your entire organization, there are solutions to dematerialize your processes efficiently.
