Cathexis Partners Becomes an Authorized Convio Solution Provider

Cathexis Partners today announced that it is now an authorized partner in the Convio Solution Provider (CSP) program designed for companies wanting to deploy Convio software and provide related services. With this formal authorization, Cathexis Partners can now provide nonprofits with high-quality consulting and implementation services around Convio online marketing, fundraising and advocacy products so that the charities can maximize their return on investment in technology.

Cathexis Partners launched in fall 2008, and has already completed more than 25 Convio deployments.

"We are excited to be an authorized Convio Solution Provider because it allows us to deepen our knowledge around Convio’s methodology, products, and best practices that makes our consultants more valuable to our clients,” said Mark Becker, founding partner of Cathexis Partners. “Having the Convio Solution Provider seal, combined with our deep knowledge and experience in Convio products, gives us a competitive edge within Convio’s base of more than 1,400 clients and gives our clients peace of mind that we understand how to implement and consult around Convio Online Marketing."

Cathexis has invested in having three people become authorized on methodology and best practices, basic product topics, and advanced product implementation around Convio.

“We believe that the Convio model delivers results for nonprofits and is a powerful and efficient platform, thus our significant investment in people and expertise to support both our growth and that of the nonprofits we serve,” added Becker.

In the second quarter of 2009, Cathexis Partners received the highest level of customer satisfaction among CSPs working on Online Marketing implementations.

In addition to ensuring that authorized partners provide the same level of consistency and service that Convio clients have grown to expect, the CSP program also gives nonprofits the flexibility to choose the applications, providers, and approach that are best suited for their needs.

”In a short period Cathexis Partners has proven itself as a valuable resource for ideas, innovation and implementation for many of our clients,” said Fred Waugh, vice president of alliances at Convio. “By having three Consultants and Technology Specialists now authorized on Convio Online Marketing, Cathexis Partners has made a strategic investment in deepening its expertise with Convio products that will pay off for its nonprofit clients today and for years to come.”

As an authorized partner that has received advanced product training, Cathexis Partners is well-versed on the implementation methodology and best practices around Convio solutions, and also offers post-deployment services and consulting. Cathexis Partners is authorized to provide services for Convio Online Marketing (eCRM) products.
