Z/Yen continues its run of major charity wins with an Information Technology contract at Cancer Research UK

Z/Yen Limited, the recently launched risk/reward management specialist firm, has won yet another assignment with a major charity - this time to help the Cancer Research UK with interim management of its fundraising system and computerisation of local committee records.

Director of Fundraising, Jackie McDougall, says: "We selected Z/Yen to do this work as it offered a practical and an imaginative approach to meet our needs, which included capacity planning and interim management of our donor systems.  This piece of work is one example of our continued efforts to improve the service to our donors and local committee network while keeping our central administrative costs to a minimum.  Z/Yen's lively and energetic style constantly challenges us to find positive solutions and help us to continue to make ourselves yet more efficient and effective."

Z/Yen director, Ian Harris, says: "We are delighted that the Campaign has chosen us to help them with their work.  We are committed to helping forward-thinking organisations to find innovative solutions.  We believe that the charity was attracted to our powerful combination of information technology experts and sector specialists who can help turn a client's vision into reality.  This work is further evidence of Z/Yen's attractiveness to charities and medical organisations."

Z/Yen specialises in risk/reward management, an innovative approach to improving organisational performance.  Z/Yen clients to date include blue chip companies in banking, insurance and distribution as well as several charities and medical organisations.

The Cancer Research UK is the European leader in anti-cancer drug development and funds about one third of all cancer research in the UK.
