STAMFORD, Conn., Feb. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- 360Alumni, the strategically advanced, intuitive and easy-to-manage alumni engagement and fundraising solution, is a 2016 Edison Awards finalist. Former web developer turned product innovator, founder and CEO of 360Alumni, Christina Balotescu, has been connecting people with technology solutions for more than 20 years.
A champion of change in alumni relations, Balotescu says: "There is a huge potential to strengthen connections between alumni and their parent organization - if you give them the keys to the network they've invested in."
360Alumni is the only CRM solution that empowers alumni to create their own events, groups, lists, and job posts. "Universities need to provide ongoing value to alumni to stay relevant," Balotescu stresses. "Today, it's all about what you can do for your alumni. Organizations have to establish relationships that serve alumni first if they want to reap the benefits of their goodwill."
360Alumni is gaining much success, and is presently signing a top Ivy League Law School in the U.S. Current clients include The Santa Fe Institute, The Master's College, FoodCorps, and ECPI University, which has been working with 360Alumni for nearly two years. "They've posted thousands of jobs through the network," Balotescu shares.
The 360Alumni all-in-one engagement platform will be showcased and celebrated on April 21st at the 29th Annual Edison Awards Gala in New York, where it will receive either a gold, silver or bronze award. Edison Award nominees are judged by more than 3,000 senior business executives and academics from across the nation. The distinguished awards, inspired by Thomas Edison's persistence and inventiveness, recognize innovation, creativity and ingenuity in the global economy.
