Abila Launches Abila Elevate™ Fundraising Platform
(Press release, March 23, 2015) — Abila, provider of software and services to nonprofits and associations, today announced Abila Elevate. Elevate is a smart, intuitive, easy-to-use, cloud-based fundraising solution that turns data into knowledge so that fundraisers can better know and engage with donors and supporters, add new donors, and more easily and effectively manage resources. Built from the ground up with and by fundraising professionals, Elevate is designed to help fundraisers spend more time connecting with donors in the ways that matter to them.
"We listened to nonprofit organizations around the country, and designed a fundraising solution in Abila Elevate that reflects their true needs and desires. It is designed to support the future needs of both the organization and donors," said Krista Endsley, CEO of Abila. "We wanted to bring a platform to the market that has been sorely missing for years-one with which fundraisers could not only access vital data, but also turn that data into the useful and actionable information they need to better engage with constituents, more effectively plan, and accurately measure and report on success. Abila Elevate turns data into knowledge so fundraisers can treat every donor like a major donor."
With current donor management systems, recent industry research shows that organizations lose 61 percent of donors each year and more than $25 billion in donations are at risk of going to another organization. While organizations have mountains of data in their databases, 74 percent of organizations aren't able to use that data to make strategic decisions. With Elevate, organizations can solve these problems.
Designed on a true SaaS platform with intuitive design and drag-and-drop configuration, Elevate is more than a Web interface to an antiquated platform. It removes the bloat associated with dated fundraising systems. Elevate is also built for the unique needs of nonprofit organizations so that fundraising professionals are not forced to customize a business CRM to meet the needs and processes of a nonprofit.
