Worldwide Cancer Research first reached out to Cairies as they were looking for some assistance to set up Pardot and integrate it with their Salesforce Nonprofit Cloud. The charity wanted to move away from their existing email marketing solution to an automated platform. They had already defined a number of email templates that matched their brand guidelines, including custom fonts and wanted to recreate these in Pardot. The move to Pardot would allow them to be able to automate a number of supporter journeys and reduce manual effort by staff.
