We use SilverStripe as our content manager for our web page. Can I still use CiviCRM for contact management only? We currently have excel spreadsheets, Outlook, and Mail Chimp, and need to consolidate.

What you can do is set up a new subdomain https://secure.yourdomainname.org - Then run a very minimal Drupal (or Wordpress) + CiviCRM on that secure.yourdomainname.org - this will provide you with all the benefits CiviCRM can offer and help you to consolidate things for your organization - without the need for your staff to learn how to use Drupal for content editing etc.

If in future you want more integration between your website and CiviCRM (esp in Drupal there are lots of integration options [e.g. views and my personal favourite: webform_civcrm module] that extend what CiviCRM can do for you) - then you can consider moving your SilverStripe website to Drupal!


There is a Make-It-Happen fundraising to get a standalone civi that would work with SilverStripe fully developed. Please support it.
