first_imgSayer Vincent surveys successful information systems One of the steering group, Ajay Burlingham-Böhr, Head of Information Systems at RSPB, said: “Other benchmarking exercises within the charity sector have looked at specific facts and figures. What is missing is a way of getting hold of some of the softer measures. How do we ensure IS strategy is in line with our organisational needs? Which systems really deliver added value? This benchlearning exercise has been well designed to cover some of these more intangible, softer issues and the results will make fascinating and useful reading.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 18 March 2004 | News Sayer Vincent is launching a survey into what makes for successful investment in information systems (IS) by charities.
