A few weeks back, we reached an important milestone. Almabase was officially crowned as the #1 Alumni Management Software in the United States by G2. As the founder and CEO of an incredibly talented team, I can’t wait to share the excitement with you and take you through our journey.

It seems only yesterday when my co-founder, Sri and I were cooped up in a tiny room in India, coding away for hours on end. We were fresh out of college, with a simple dream - to make quality education accessible for everyone. Little did we know that a few years later, we would be where we are today - with an incredible team, a fantastic product, and so many happy customers around the world. It’s been a labor of love so far, and we can’t wait to see where we go from here. This milestone is a culmination of all the highs of a thrilling seven year journey.

What Makes Us The #1 Alumni Management Software

Trusted by Advancement Teams and Leaders across the U.S.

We have been incredibly fortunate to partner with hundreds of leading institutions in the US. We have always put our customers’ needs above all and that’s the motto we live by. We’re proud to have worked with thousands of Advancement Leaders who are using our product to drive higher alumni participation and donations.

Here's what some of our customers have to say about Almabase

Seamless Integrations Driving Advancement Goals

Whether you use Raiser’s Edge, Salesforce, or another database for storing your alumni data, our integration allows you to push all this updated information back into your database. Are you also stuck in a limbo using multiple platforms, and spending a bomb for achieving your advancement goals? With our powerful integrations with leading brands, Almabase is the preferred choice for Advancement Leaders across United States. Furthermore, the in-built integrations on our platform will also save you thousands of dollars annually, as you don’t need separate tools just for integration.

Alumni Centricity at the Heart of Everything we do

What makes our software best-in-class is the fact that it empowers advancement teams to be more alumni-centric. Being alumni centric essentially means building relationships based on value and loyalty, keeping the needs and behavior of the alumni at the center of program design. Our platform equips your advancement team with all the LEGO blocks to do just that. You have the power to drive participation, monitor metrics and impact at a deeper level, and most importantly, build initiatives that focus on your alumni needs. Our platform is built ground-up with alumni centricity as the main focus.

The Alumni Centricity Framework. This approach captures the very essence of alumni centricity as it places alumni right at the center of program design. Instead of the traditional technique of creating alumni programming based on team resources, the alumni centricity framework is an approach that builds programs based on what alumni need.

So there you have it - some of the reasons why we were crowned the #1 Alumni Management Software in the world by G2. I am incredibly humbled by this achievement, and would like to thank our dedicated team and all our amazing customers for this coveted title. Here’s to many more down the road! 💙
