Sage Previews New ePhilanthropy Offering, Plans Next-Generation Technical Enhancements for Millennium, and Launches Hosted Sage Fundraising 50 Options for Nonprofit Organizations
The company plans to add functionality to ensure the product delivers a full-featured "front-end" donor experience, including online giving, event and membership registration, e-mail marketing, as well as the most powerful "back-end" fundraising management functionality, such as constituent and gift tracking, event and membership management, business intelligence (BI), and reporting.
"After extensive due diligence, we concluded that the right investments could easily accelerate Millennium to the next level of fundraising software," said Endsley. "Millennium's back-end sophistication and powerful customization features provide the ideal platform to expand and enable our future fundraising strategy. The product already offers sophisticated business intelligence tools, superior prospect management workflow and major gift tracking, and a continued focus on accessible data."
Sage will host a cocktail reception at AFP's International Conference this evening to celebrate the Millennium product.
Hosted Fundraising Technology Options
Sage has launched fully managed hosting services for its Sage Fundraising 50 software to help nonprofit organizations lower their total cost of ownership (TCO), while increasing flexibility and accessibility. With no need to deploy or maintain a server, hosted Sage Fundraising 50 can minimize an organization's information technology (IT) costs and resources. In addition to being easy-to-use and affordable, the software helps organizations increase productivity, strengthen and support the efforts of their fundraising staff, and more easily analyze and communicate their results to both their organization's leadership and constituents.
"Hosted solutions can provide the flexibility and accountability that today's nonprofit organizations need to work at peak performance," said Holly Ross, executive director for NTEN, the membership organization of nonprofit professionals who put technology to use for their causes. "At a time when our sector is called upon to do ever more with ever less, having anytime-anywhere access to important management platforms, especially for fundraising and accounting, can help nonprofits increase the ease and efficiency with which they meet their missions."
