Technically Sophisticated Offices Can Still Do Better

This is part of our series on institution resource profiles. Through working with our customers, Reeher has found that colleges and universities tend to fall into one of three resource profiles. Is your organization a “Technical Sophisticate,” a “Do More with Less Shop” or a “Powerhouse Fundraiser?”

Here’s how Technical Sophisticates can close the gap between the back-office database and the daily work of the gift officer.

Technical Sophisticates have deep back office operations where robust Advancement Services teams build and maintain the infrastructure supporting their major gift officers. They are comfortable managing a variety of technologies and getting them to work together to deliver information to front line officers and their management. Since technology changes rapidly, these institutions are always working hard to keep up.

As a Reeher customer, you’ll take some pressure off your back office by letting the Reeher Platform deliver the user experience and management tool-kit to the front line. In addition to pre-built curated dashboards, gift officers can build their own queries and create basic reporting so they have accurate and meaningful data. Reeher takes care of training, support, and upgrades.

The Last Mile Story

As key vendors change in the marketplace, Technical Sophisticates need to spend time managing the integrations they have created for their systems and processes. These efforts are expensive and time-consuming. In the meantime, fundraising stakeholders wait for tools.

The fundraising enablement tools in the Reeher Platform allow gift officers to do all their work in one workspace. Our customers experience a high level of user adoption. The insight from the Reeher Community helps executives have a better sense of where they want to focus, which improves conversations between business users and those who deliver the technology.

Because Reeher is a pure multi-tenant SaaS solution, it is ready to go quickly and pre-built to reflect your data. Implementation that requires just a few weeks of work by your systems team.
