Your Questions Answered

Is Revenue-Based Pricing Actually More Cost-Effective?

Many platforms use record-based pricing. But this pricing structure tends to limit growth opportunities as NPOs hesitate to add new records in an effort to avoid being bumped up to the next pricing tier–which can be more costly than you’d expect! Our revenue-based pricing model removes the risk of a surprise price increase and allows you to plan your budget more easily. This pricing model gives you the capacity to grow without fear and limitations.

Do I Really Need All These Bells and Whistles?

You might not need a system with full-fledged functionality right from the start, but going without additional tools and functionality can limit your potential in the future. It’s important not to limit your potential to grow and scale quickly and affordably. That’s why we offer multiple packages that can meet you where you are today while giving you the flexibility you’ll need in the future. The cheapest solution now may end up costing you growth opportunities and wasted time in the long run.

Aren’t All Data Migrations the Same?

Your data is the foundation of your donor relationships. Mass uploads and one-size-fits-all import scripts can strip it of what makes it unique to your organization. Our tailored approach involves a full data audit so you can avoid costly enrichment services down the road. With new enhancements to our data import and migration processes, you will be able to import your data seamlessly and ensure that all fields are mapped accurately.
