Economic Change Runs Working Parent Salesforce Training Program, Incorporates FormAssembly
Economic Change is a Salesforce consulting agency that works directly with nonprofit groups within the UK. The agency’s purpose is to help nonprofit groups establish strategic results and clear goals through the use of technology.
