Connecting to the Leading Donor Management Systems: We Make It Easy

Connecting to the Leading Donor Management Systems: We Make It Easy

Donor management systems are important. They’re designed to keep your list of donors and your organization’s financial records all in one place. The systems themselves are designed to be convenient, but integrating them with other software can sometimes be a nightmare.

This is why iDonate’s donation solutions translate seamlessly to some of the leading donor management systems on the market, ones like Salesforce, Blackbaud, and Microsoft Dynamics. The last thing you as the nonprofit should worry about are the administrative tasks yet to be completed. This takes time and effort away from where you should be focusing – your donors and your mission.

If you’re looking for a platform that can help prevent a lot of headaches, read below for a few reasons why iDonate’s integrations can save you valuable time.

Keep Your Data

When it comes to data, sometimes you just want to do it your way. We believe your data is not only your data, but also should be accessible in an easy and efficient way.

We’ve anticipated all this and taken integrations to the next level by giving you control of how you want to receive your data. It’s all technical stuff for the technically minded, but we can help you through the jargon like webhooks, application programming interfaces (API), and software developer kits (SDK).

Keep Your Workflow Organized

Integrations should not just work, but should work great. “Pushing” a file over is not enough. You have to ensure all the campaign codes, giving pages, and projects stay lined up. And a donor that gave must match the one already in your database.

We’ve already done the heavy lifting to make integrations work well and make sure things stay in sync from front to back. In fact, we’ve taken on some of the most complex integrations in the industry and, as a result, helped our customers save time, money, and a lot of stress with data management.

Keep Your Eyes on the Donor

Databases are of great importance and we certainly believe organizations should have one. However, we think the donor applications are where the highest return on your marketing investment is realized. That’s why we focus exclusively on building the best giving experiences for your donors.

Web forms, peer-to-peer pages, and noncash giving are some ways we provide for you to create the next successful campaign. The more time you spend creating a great experience for your donors, the higher return you will receive.

Keep the Systems You Want

While there are many choices in databases, we’re somewhat indifferent to the one you choose. With iDonate, you can start with one and move to another with no loss of data and no disruption for your donors. We provide helpful resources and guides to quickly set up different integrations, while also allowing you full control over which systems to use and when to update them.
