Key representatives from SSB preview our vision for the future of advancement data management.
A constituent’s journey can be siloed across a campus; if they interact with different departments, how can your advancement team understand those interactions, centralize the service model, and act in targeted and efficient ways? We’ll demonstrate how industry-leading Affinaquest, ALUMinate, and HEPdata are coming together under the SSB umbrella to revolutionize advancement operations and help organizations form authentic relationships with their supporters—from identification to lifelong stewardship.
We showcase SSB’s unified vision of our enrichment, analytics, and data management tools and explore the power of the Golden Record in fundraising.
