Founded in 1951 by the Travis County Medical Society, We Are Blood provides the blood supply for more than 40 hospitals and medical facilities in Central Texas. Through the years, the independent nonprofit’s name and size have changed, but its mission remains the same: To provide and protect the community blood supply, to inspire Central Texans to save lives locally, and to always treat everyone it serves as family.
Today, We Are Blood makes it easy for Central Texans to donate greatly needed therapeutic components for local distribution. Every donation, whether blood or monetary, directly impacts the Central Texas community.
We Are Blood needed a fast and simple solution to overcome the growing pains in its accounting department. Streamlining high-profile integrations and billing for the fast-growing company was a top concern. Any new software had to deliver the detailed information that We Are Blood’s customers expected, and it had to operate within a nonprofit’s price range.
To address its growing accounting needs, Express Information Systems programmed, installed and trained We Are Blood’s team to use Scribe – a tool that integrated with We Are Blood’s existing Microsoft Dynamics GP software to connect its database to its proprietary blood banking software. Where the implementation of the blood banking software took three years, Express’s solution was operational in only three days. The drastic increase in efficiency allowed We Are Blood to operate without having to take on additional accounting staff. Express also implemented additional products including Forms Printer, Smartfill, and SmartList Builder, to provide the detailed information demanded by We Are Blood’s customers.
In 2006, Express Information Systems strengthened We Are Blood’s financial backbone with a strong accounting software solution. Today, after 10+ years of service, Express continues to provide ongoing technical and business support to assist We Are Blood with the ever-changing demands of its industry. This includes a recent update to We Are Blood’s client invoice process to allow the secure and reliable sending of invoices daily.
