Yippiekiyay (YKY) delivers everything a nonprofit needs to found, file, fund and grow the organization. Technology guided by a personal nonprofit expert hurdles the bureaucratic barriers so the organization can focus on it’s mission. Think cloud based “TurboTax” software that files for nonprofit status and assists organizations with annual compliance.

 

Chromedia LOVES this project. Not only is it a perfect match for our skill set and experience with SaaS projects but we have experienced the complexities of establishing a nonprofit in the USA and in the Philippines first hand. Not only that but the Denver based team behind Yippiekiyay have hearts of gold and a mission that is easy to get behind and work hard for.

Yippiekiyay is another organization that was introduced to Chromedia after a bad experience with an inexperienced yet expensive development team. They had a minimally functional product that was developed on an inappropriate platform with a database that was impossible to develop further. Fortunately, Yippiekiyay understood that they needed to restart from square one.

This project consists of a robust secure customer portal where the details of the organization are entered and stored, with a powerful suite of tools for the YKY Administrators who massage the data and communicate specifics with their customers. It’s a mixture of a content management system, complicated form builders, communications tools, targeted marketing platform and a community of nonprofits.
