Have you ever tried manual database cleanup for your nonprofit organization? If not, consider yourself fortunate. The process can be labor-intensive. And after you’re done, you could still end up with errors. If you have lots of data living in multiple systems, the very idea of cleanup and integration can feel overwhelming. Automated data integration is critical to your nonprofit data management software solution. This short primer explains five ways that it can streamline constituent management for your organization.
Automation Can Save You Time So You Can Get Back to Focusing on Your Larger Impact
Do you want to do manual cleanup? No. Does your nonprofit still need accurate data? Yes. But you needn’t resign yourself or your staff to hours of point-and-click tedium. Automated integration tools like Omatic Cloud NPSP data import can save you time, money and headaches. A simple import brings donor information, payments and other info right into Salesforce without browsing through hundreds of constituent records. And you can focus on helping carry out your organization’s mission.
Clean Standardized Data Without Any Duplicates
Automated data integration doesn’t just save time during the import process – it can reduce time spent on duplicate database entries. During data imports, Omatic Cloud analyzes constituent records using sophisticated algorithms. It can figure out that “Kendrick Hightower,” “K.A. Hightower” and “KENDRICK HIGHTOWER” are the same donor. Those records are merged and their format standardized to cut out duplicates, incomplete records or weird capitalization problems.
No Need for Painful System Migrations
Nonprofits often use multiple CRM packages or several database systems at once. Maybe your organization has such a technological patchwork. Salesforce with Blackbaud is a pretty common combination. Perhaps you’d rather just use one, but the thought of system migration has you screaming in terror. Omatic Cloud can connect disparate systems and automate data integration, with bidirectional flow that delivers accurate data across your organization.
Your Apps Can Talk to Each Other
Integration is about data accuracy, but it’s also about convenience. Perhaps your technological patchwork includes email marketing tools like Constant Contact, online donation portals like Classy or accounting software packages like QuickBooks. Who wants to spend hours, days or weeks transferring data from app to app? You don’t. Omatic Cloud uses API-based Connectors to exchange and synchronize data between apps.
You Get Consistent End User Experiences
As people use certain tech tools, they gain familiarity over time. And when switching to new systems or using new tools, they can end up with a learning curve. You may use proprietary or custom data integration tools, but maybe they don’t interface with your CRM in the same way. Omatic Cloud resolves these issues by providing a common user experience. You get consistent data across your organization with both speed and accuracy in every aspect – campaign planning, financial postings and more.
Just like businesses, nonprofits need automated data integration solutions. Omatic Cloud isn’t just a single app – it’s a multifaceted system that improves data integration and health. Built by Salesforce and RE software integration experts, it provides vital support that helps nonprofits focus on accomplishing their missions.
