VILLANOVA, Pa., Sept. 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- roundCorner, a company offering CRM, fundraising, and grants management software and services for nonprofit organizations, today announces its biggest upgrade ever to flagship nonprofit fundraising product NGO Connect.
The latest upgrade of NGO Connect debuts significant charge processing, sustainer giving and batch performance improvements as well as enhancements to existing functionality. Redesigned messaging, job notifications and more secure online payments will enable enterprise nonprofits to work more efficiently, streamline fundraising operations, and achieve greater programmatic results. Erin McHugh Saif, Vice President of Product and Engineering at roundCorner, says, "At roundCorner, we measure product enhancements by their impact on our users. The value delivered through the NGO Connect Summer '18 release is significant. Charge processing is over 350% faster. Users are experiencing up to 120% gains when processing sustaining gifts, and we increased Batch Upload processing speeds by 67%. We've also redesigned the batch gift entry experience, speeding it up by 33% and eliminating the need for seven extra clicks per gift. We are proud to partner with the world's most vital nonprofits to take NGO Connect to the highest level of CRM performance so they can rapidly grow their fundraising programs."
Enterprise Nonprofits Adoption in 2018
Since 2009, roundCorner has on-boarded some of the largest nonprofits in the U.S. onto its software. In 2018 alone, nonprofits that deployed NGO Connect include The Salvation Army Central Territory, ChildFund, and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), to name a few. By adopting roundCorner's software, these nonprofits have moved away from legacy fundraising systems that were previously widely adopted by the industry.
Several customers have expressed excitement about NGO Connect's latest upgrade. Dale Youngkrantz, CRM Director at The Salvation Army Central Territory, says, "As our organization prepares for the busy holiday season, we appreciate that roundCorner continues to improve NGO Connect for enterprise nonprofits like The Salvation Army. The features in this release are critical for us to achieve impact with our programs - especially the redesigned Batch Gift Entry functionality which will save our team valuable time."
Boys & Girls Clubs of America, another customer of roundCorner, has also recognized roundCorner's efforts to further enable enterprise nonprofits. "We are so excited about the new fraud prevention features in this new release," said Becky Fernandez, Senior Director of Resource Development Operations at Boys & Girls Clubs of America. "It provides protections that enable us to be the best possible stewards of our donor dollars and ultimately better serve our Clubs."
Built in the cloud, NGO Connect offers features that support enterprise nonprofits with constituent engagement, online and offline fundraising, gift processing, events, volunteers, reporting and more. The software makes fundraising and constituent management easier than ever and transforms the way mission-driven organizations operate on a daily basis.
Customers can expect an expanding feature list as roundCorner continues to reimagine its products for constituent-centered nonprofits. NGO Connect's latest release is immediately available to customers. Customers that want to learn more about the release and how to upgrade are encouraged to review the NGO Connect Summer '18 Release Notes and join roundCorner's upcoming release Webinar.
