Blackbaud contact management solution for smaller charities launched
16 Nov 2011: Blackbaud Europe has announced the UK launch of its eTapestry contact management solution for smaller charities, created to help them grow their supporter networks for fundraising and communications.
Sold as an affordable solution, eTapestry is web-based and available in three packages starting from £65 per month. A 30-day free trial is also available to allow charities to try before they buy.
Over 7,000 not-for-profits already use Blackbaud eTapestry to help them grow their donor/supporter base, engage with donors more effectively and communicate with supporters and prospects online through built-in eMarketing tools.
“Blackbaud is introducing eTapestry to the UK in response to market feedback from smaller not-for-profits that want to get up and running quickly,” said Jerome Moisan, Blackbaud Europe’s Managing Director.
“eTapestry can be set up in just minutes, enabling charities to engage immediately with their donors and supporters. They can then manage those relationships, track donor and supporter information quickly, and view pertinent analysis results for campaign planning, such as recent gifts, top donors and KPIs.”
Charities can get started quickly by importing existing data from Excel, and immediately begin tracking donors, prospects, members, and/or alumni. A management dashboard allows charities to immediately understand current status with gifts, pledges, payments.
All three packages include access to the web-based fundraising and contact management database, unlimited user licenses, email and chat support, unlimited on-demand training and mobile access. Each package’s increasing functionality enables the solution to grow with the charity as it succeeds.
1. The Starter package is £65 per month and includes online fundraising and eMarketing tools, and an import wizard to help get organisations up and running quickly.
2. The Essentials package is £130 per month and includes all the features of the Starter package, plus executive and benchmark reporting, Microsoft Outlook email integration, three online fundraising forms, eMarketing tools, instructor-led online classes, basic data conversion, and implementation consulting hours.
3. The Pro package is £250 per month and includes all of the above features, plus a National Change of Address service, role-based security and admin, five online fundraising forms, eMarketing tools, the ability to create donation, signup, and event registration forms, and additional time with eTapestry consultants to assist with setup.
In addition to the packages, to make it easier for not-for-profits to get started with eTapestry, organisations can import their data from Excel or use sample data to evaluate the system through a free 30-day trial. Also, included in the trial are the on-demand video tutorials to help users get the best out of the solution.
