“We engaged Cause & Solution (CSI) for one, simple reason:  Jim Bocian and Tammy Batchelor had extensive experience with managing the Raisers Edge and Financial Edge databases at a large, complex, multisite health system like ours.  The work that they did for us confirmed that we were right.  We needed definitive answers to specific questions that are common across health systems.  We needed consultants who could provide us with real-life, boots-on-the-ground best practices—formed from their own actual, experience—that enable the database to perform optimally for us.  CSI not only understands the nuts and bolts of RE, FE, and RE NXT, they also know how best to apply and utilize the database in a health system environment.”
