How Does it Work?
We take time to learn about your organization’s operations and unique needs. By meeting with your organization’s entire advancement team, gift officers, Raiser’s Edge™ users, members of your leadership team, and people who depend on information from Raiser’s Edge™ (like your Finance and Marketing teams), we can identify what is working for you—and what is not. In certain situations, a database audit will be necessary to completely understand how your organization can most effectively use Raiser’s Edge™.
Together, we will then create a clear plan of action to best fit Raiser’s Edge™ into your fundraising goals and objectives.

What is a Database Audit?
Our audits consist of a thorough review of your database records, coding, structure and fundraising operations. We don’t leave a stone unturned!
Once completed, we provide a written analysis that clearly identifies areas in need of improvement or adjustment, so that your organization can better use Raiser’s Edge™ to maximize its fundraising goals and objectives.
Our team really shines during the implementation of our audits. We work hand-in-hand with your team to clean-up your Raiser’s Edge™ data and optimize staff workflows.

Can we Create Custom Reports?
Raiser’s Edge™ and Raiser’s Edge NXT™ have many built-in reporting dashboards and analysis features, but these are sometimes just not enough.
We can optimize your Raiser’s Edge™ NXT dashboards to create customized reports easily accessible for your whole team. Alternatively, we can optimize reporting within Qlik, Tableau, and other BI tools.
Eliminate the need to manage your reporting in spreadsheets and dashboards outside of Raiser’s Edge™ with our custom reporting services.

Should Our Staff Consider Formal Training?
In a word, yes!
Raiser’s Edge™ is a robust and complex software solution and can be overwhelming for team members with little formal training. Every organization will benefit from properly trained staff. Relying on untrained users can lead to issues with reporting and data analysis, or worse—incorrect or disastrous use of advanced features.
We offer one-on-one as well as small group training on use of your Raiser’s Edge™ database.
Connect with us to set up a formal training.
Need Long-Term Database Management?
We can provide interim and long-term outsourced staffing solutions!
Our team is always available on a long-term basis to serve as your remote database manager. Many of our clients outsource their gift entry, database clean-up, and Raiser’s Edge™ database administration to us in a long-term partnership.
