“Habitat of Greater Baton Rouge managed our own mortgages for 24 years. Last year, we decided to outsource the servicing hoping to decrease our delinquencies and put the ministry back into our work. Our experiment did not work and we have taken servicing of our mortgages back. Most importantly, we have reconnected with our homeowners who have said they are glad to be home again. We used MoreThanData’s Keystone before we outsourced and we are using it again. MTD has helped make the record-keeping transition very smooth. We feel as though we have picked right back up where we left off and we are also home again!”
Lynn Clark – Executive Director, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Baton Rouge, Baton Rouge, LA
“We are currently using – and have used since the formation of our affiliate – the Keystone database program. I have worked with database systems in the past and I highly recommend Keystone. Mostly because it is for affiliates, created by affiliates. It can track all your volunteers, your contributions, and your mortgages. All that for a very reasonable price. The support is also excellent. They reply to all my emails within a couple of hours and I have never been put on hold when I call them.”
Tami Schmitz – Office Manager, Habitat for Humanity of Prairie Lakes, Glenwood, MN
“Keystone has been a great organizational tool for our affiliate. Once all the data was entered, Keystone provided an incredibly easy way to track volunteers, families, donors, etc. (not to mention mortgages and even sweat equity). Keystone allows us to send bulk emails to volunteers advising them of opportunities, as well as templates for homeowner letters. The MTD support team is amazing. They really do respond almost immediately and have been able to resolve any problem we’ve had.”
Cody Hamilton – Administrative Support, Amarillo HFH, Amarillo, TX
“Keystone is truly a wonderful and easy to use tool. I am very, very impressed. You can tell how much time and effort went into making it easy to use for all types of users.”
Suzi Bryant – Volunteer Coordinator, HFH of Beaver County, Beaver Falls, PA
“Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity uses Keystone from MoreThanData. It is reasonably priced and the tech support people are very kind and helpful. They can answer your questions by phone or email and do so promptly. I use the database to track volunteers and donors, provide addresses for our mailings, track monies that have come in from various fundraising events and make receipts for donations. I feel that with a little more time, I will get more efficient at all the other functions of the database.”
Jackie Mattfeld – Administrative Assistant, Lake Agassiz HFH, Moorhead, MN
“I have to say I am very impressed with the user friendliness of the Keystone program. As someone who has never used any type of data base before working at Habitat, I was pleased to see how easy it is to learn Keystone. After becoming familiar with Keystone’s many features I find it very easy to navigate the program to find pertinent information: Entering data, and later retrieving that same data is easy to do. Because the Keystone program can handle such a diverse amount of information, it is a great way to help keep the many aspects of the affiliate connected together; one central location for the Construction, Restore and Affiliate office staff to store and share information that is readily available even when personal connections within the affiliate may not be, is a very valuable tool. It is a great program that everyone within the whole affiliate can use and I highly recommend Keystone for other Habitat affiliates to use.”
Anna Clere – ReStore Coordinator, Newnan-Coweta Habitat for Humanity (GA)
“I must commend you on the design of Keystone. The more I use it the more impressed I am. The context-sensitive Help is really nice for first-time users.”
Tom Graham – Volunteer, HFH Buffalo (NY)
“I have to say that using the new Keystone has been a great experience thanks to all of the terrific support that you have provided. I couldn’t do it without you. I am so excited to finally be able to manage our affiliate (especially our mortgages) in such a professional manner using Keystone.”
Joan Boyle – Executive Director, Habitat for Humanity of Grand County, Granby, CO
“Thank you for your wonderful support. We recently merged with another affiliate and now serve 3 1/2 counties. I really like the training videos and look forward to more. They offer time and cost savings for affiliates that must travel great distances to obtain training. The training videos really helped my understanding of Keystone. Thank you.”
Nancy Demers – Administrative Assistant, Habitat for Humanity HiawathaLand, Manistique, MI
“I love the new Keystone program and so do our volunteers!
Keystone has many new features over the previous Habitrak. As the Executive Director of a very small affiliate, Keystone is just perfect for our needs. Once you learn the basics it is extremely user friendly! I love it because I can sit down at the computer and in a very short time I can:
- Enter donors and write personal messages on each of their thank you letters;
- Personalize each letter for our affiliate’s work at any given time;
- Pull up any contact and write a quick note or email and it is already addressed and ready to go;
- Easily post the reason for the note, letter or email;
- Pull up a list of volunteers to do any specific task, like framing a house, bringing refreshments, working on our newsletter, and then print the list, create a letter or email, pick up the phone and your job is half done!
- Produce quick reports on tons of different things, create our own!
- And I could go on and on and on.
Thank you MoreThanData and the Keystone team!”
Joyce Hatton Yarrow – Executive Director, Middlesex Habitat for Humanity of CT, Middletown, CT
“Keystone is a great product and we use most of the features that the software provides.”
Dean Marschel – IT Team Chairman, Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Harris Co., Houston, TX
“I just wanted to let you know that we have just spent a considerable amount of time with MoreThanData tech support to undo a few problems that we created for ourselves with the way we set up Keystone on our computers. Beck gave us the time needed to get everything right on our computers and made sure we were comfortable with what we were doing.
It was a pleasure to work with Beck. She took all the time we needed to help us solve our problems. She was knowledgeable, capable, friendly, funny and helpful. What a treat!
I have spent more time with other tech support with other companies and never got to solutions. Beck spent most of the time with my new Admin Assistant bringing her completely up to speed. I only spent about 30 minutes altogether and learned much more about the program than I had known before, all while she was solving the dilemma created by our local tech guy.
Keep up the great work we really appreciate it.”
Judi Scharns – Executive Director, Watauga County Habitat for Humanity, Boone, NC
“We’ve been using Habitrak for the past year and a half and upgraded to Keystone last month. Initially the learning curve for Habitrak was a bit steep but once you get thinking in Habitrak terms it gets tremendously easier. It’s certainly not perfect but for a small affiliate (2-3 homes/yr), it meets our needs and the price is right. You can get more info at www.morethandata.org. They’re great about responding quickly.”
Terri Marino – Executive Director, HFH Greater Teton Area, Jackson, WY
“I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the unbelievable amount of work you have done – and continue to do – to develop and maintain this wonderful program. We previously used a different product to manage our database, but Keystone is so much better. Thank you all!”
Marie Hegeman – Database Manager, HFH of Otsego County, Oneonta, NY
“Keystone is the new Habitrak and I love it. The e-mail feature is awesome. I find it less complicated than Habitrak.”
Jane Iery – Volunteer Coordinator, Marquette County HFH, Marquette, MI
“Thanks for a wonderful product that makes my life easier.”
Jodi Price – Mortgage Manager, Knoxville Habitat for Humanity, Inc., Knoxville, TN
“Thanks for all your hard work on the Keystone Program. We love it!”
