International Rescue Committee
IRC Engages Trusted Partner roundCorner to Implement NGO Connect Volunteers
Customer Profile: IRC
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises, helping to restore health, safety, education, economic wellbeing, and power to people devastated by conflict and disaster. IRC teams provide health care, infrastructure, learning and economic support to people in more than 40 countries, with special programs designed for women and children. IRC resettles thousands of refugees each year in 26 U.S. cities.
For the implementation of NGO Connect Volunteers, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) was seeking an implementation partner who would collaborate with the team in a flexible and transparent manner. It was vital to engage with a partner who treated the project as a joint collaboration rather than a vendor-client relationship.
For the product to better fit IRC’s unique needs there was an interest to build a customized solution. Thus the ideal partner would have the skills to build customizations within the package; however, staying within budget was important. Additionally, the ideal partner would take ample time to train and educate the team on features, customizations and other technical components unknown to IRC.
