Cloud for Good Releases Synagogues Application

A Memphis-based startup company that harnesses the power of cloud computing technology to help nonprofits has released a new product aimed at synagogues.

Cloud for Good this week is announcing the release of SynagogueCloud, a comprehensive management application tailored for synagogues and built in the cloud on the Salesforce.com platform.

“The cloud revolution and the Salesforce platform are changing the way synagogues operate today by providing the cutting-edge technology needed to build deep and meaningful relationships with their constituents,” said Cloud for Good founder and CEO Tal Frankfurt. “We tailored Salesforce, one of the most powerful Web-based applications, to manage every touch the synagogue has with its members, board, volunteers, partners and vendors.

“The application allows the synagogue’s staff to manage one list that is integrated with their website, social networks and financial systems. This application is going to change how synagogues engage and cultivate relationships with their members.”

SynagogueCloud is an example of the way Cloud for Good is using cloud technology to help nonprofits develop customized solutions in support of their respective missions and to raise the social return on their investments.

Frankfurt founded Cloud for Good a few years ago. In 2010, he and his wife relocated to Memphis from Israel.

He first worked here out of his home, but after meeting LaunchMemphis co-founder Eric Mathews, he was encouraged to use office space inside the EmergeMemphis business incubator.

Frankfurt says the advantage of cloud technology – not being server-based – is that it enables small nonprofits to use the same platform as a large, global company with greater resources. Instead of buying and maintaining expensive servers and software, synagogues can use Web-based applications to get a higher return on their social investment.
