Australian Red Cross

Australia’s most recognized charity harnesses the power of digital to provide a unified experience across multiple services, and streamline and standardize processes to reduce the cost of manual work.

Geschäftliche Ziele

After more than a century of delivering humanitarian aid across Australian, Red Cross embarked on a digital transformation initiative that would ultimately expand its humanitarian services, which include emergency services, migration support, and first aid training, to help the most vulnerable.

A key objective was to create a single view of donors, customers, volunteers, members, and clients so Red Cross can provide a unified experience and deepen engagement with these stakeholders.

Herausforderungen bei der Integration

Red Cross offers a wide variety of services over a vast geographic area including some of Australia’s most remote regions. Given the diverse operations, a number of systems needed to be integrated to ensure data was consistent, reliable, and available to develop a holistic view of people who engage with Red Cross.

Further complicating the project was that a number of third parties in its ecosystem, including fundraising partners, had separate platforms that needed to integrate with Red Cross’s CRM and financial systems.

Wie Boomi geholfen hat

The first step in Red Cross’ digital strategy was using the Boomi Platform to connect the data from its core on-premises and cloud-based systems in real time, to form a 360-degree view of the customer.

Its new digital experience platform – MyRedCross – will initially provide regular givers instant access to their donation history, tax receipts, annual tax statement, and communication preferences, then extend access to all 270,000 stakeholders.
