Application Hosting


Fusion Labs brings reliable and affordable hosting of Blackbaud applications to all organizations – big and small.  Fusion Labs is hosting CRM, The Raiser’s Edge, Financial Edge, GrantedGE, and Spectrum.  Our staff brings years of experience to hosting those applications in a secured environment in our state-of-the-art data center. 


The applications are always available, reliably backed up and maintained so that you and your staff can focus on your job and not on the computer systems. 


You just need an Internet connection to securely log into your applications.  This can be from your office, from home or from the airport.  All transactions are handled over an encrypted link to ensure your data stays safe and secure. 

You can easily control which staff have access to which application – add or remove staff access and reset passwords – all from your own desktop.  


Network and Bandwidth


Fusion Labs provides Internet connectivity at up to 100Mbps.  Each Client can use up to that limit at no extra charge.  Each Client is allocated a volume of total data transfers for each month.  As long as they don’t exceed that volume, there are no additional network charge.  Bandwidth can be quickly adjusted as required.  Availability is continually monitored to ensure your users and customers can access your site and your applications.  Connectivity is available 99.99% annually.


IT Staffing Support

In addition to effectively managing the hosted environment, Fusion Labs’ staff of IT engineers is available to assist Clients with ad hoc projects.  This can vary from providing remote or on-site IT support during a special event or staff shortage to helping plan and execute IT projects.  Fusion Labs staff have planned and executed data center moves, system upgrades, Blackbaud migrations and upgrades, and many similar projects. 


Fusion Labs has also assisted clients with development of Reports.
