Mays Mission for the Handicapped Case Study

Mays Mission for the Handicapped, headquartered in Heber Springs, Arkansas, has been supporting people with disabilities since 1967. Founded on the premise that everyone deserves a chance, Mays Mission provides a variety of services and programs that help people connect with job openings. All across the United States, the organization also provides academic scholarships and “camperships,” which make it possible for children and adults to participate in summer camps. Mays Mission’s nationwide job opportunity referral system generates a large number of calls and mail inquiries to help support the organization’s goals and assist people with disabilities.

Since 1991, Mays Mission had used an on-premises version of Microsoft Dynamics GP to manage its finances. The solution’s database housed all of the organization’s financial data and served as an important reference resource. Sherry M. Niehaus, President and Executive Director of Mays Mission for the Handicapped, explains, “We wanted to make use of the most current version of Microsoft Dynamics GP to continue to receive support and timely software updates. However, we have limited resources for managing technology. We could not afford the costs to update our software tools nor could we replace our computers, especially in a weak economy with donations down.”

“I would recommend myGPcloud to anyone. It’s an outstanding value, takes a huge burden off our own resources, and offers an advanced solution that helps us streamline our work in so many ways,” Niehaus said.
