Our founders started the company to make education more accessible to everyone. That mission is our measure of success, so we provide a dedicated alumni success consultant to work closely with every single one of our customers and ensure they are succeeding. We exist to transform your alumni program in a way that creates value for all stakeholders. We win when you win.
With Almabase, everything is at a single place which is a huge time saver for our staff. We have been able to tremendously simplify our event management process & boost participation over the last 4 years!
Almabase is user-friendly, easy to learn, and the customer success team is always quick to help us with troubleshooting or even adapting the platform based on our needs.
Our annual day of giving has always been successful, but we feel our outstanding success this year was definitely enhanced by bringing Almabase on board to create our giving site.
Almabase integrates several different systems into one easy to use location. I especially appreciate its integration with Raiser's Edge. Almabase has allowed us to combine several different products into one easy space - website, directory, email process, event registration, etc.
Fantastic Customer Service! Almabase is the perfect solution for our needs. Almabase has allowed me to work more efficiently and engage more alumni and constituents while I do that. We particularly love the event management, giving platform, and email tools.
The on-boarding, customer service, and responsiveness is top-notch. The Almabase team took the time to learn our culture and were great in providing an effective marketing and communications strategy to roll the platform out to our alumni. Overall, working with Almabase and their team has been an absolute pleasure.”
Almabase is a great tool for us to reach our alumni. The team not only answers operational questions but also advises on how to strategize for engagement and giving in the future.
Customizable, innovative, great communication, adjust website to fit the strategy of the program, completely supportive and flexible, go out of their way to understand my vision.
First, we’d just like to give a quick shout out to the team at Blackbaud for their in-house alumni engagement solution, NetCommunity. NetCommunity is a pioneer in the Alumni Engagement space and has been used by several non-profits to improve alumni engagement and fundraising. As a Blackbaud product, NetCommunity has a strong integration with Raiser’s Edge. But as a Blackbaud Technology Partner, Almabase is also able to achieve a similar integration with Raiser’s Edge and BBMS.
Where Almabase really comes out as a winner is in being extremely user friendly, intuitive and modern in its approach and features. We believe that it should be extremely easy for your constituents to use the platform and for you to administer it. Being agile in adapting to your requirements as your needs evolve is important to us and you’ll see us keeping up with the changing trends so you have the latest alumni engagement tools at your disposal.
With both Almabase and iModules you need to just maintain one contract and one relationship to cater to all your alumni engagement and fundraising needs.
With Almabase, as with iModules, you get not just a software solution but also the expertise to help you drive your alumni programs forward and improve engagement.
There are similarities in features that are offered by the two solutions and a few differences, and we can get into those details, but let’s go through the top reasons educational institutions use Almabase over NetCommunity.
Almabase has worked closely with product teams at Blackbaud to develop ways for Almabase to talk to Blackbaud. Our seamless integrations allow you to connect Almabase with Raiser’s Edge, Raiser’s Edge NXT, and BBMS in an unparalleled way. Our integration allows you to:
- Sync alumni contact and profile information
- Update event registrations in bulk
- Process gifts easily
- Process payments via your existing BBMS account
Almabase has advanced social media integrations that automatically bring in information about your alumni as well as help you increase the reach of your programs.
- Alumni can sync LinkedIn and Facebook profiles
- Crowdfunding is deeply integrated with Facebook, Twitter & Whatsapp to identify real social media ambassadors and drive participation
- Events posted on Almabase automatically drive better participation through social media
