"Great features, easy to use, fair price"

Comments: The alumni community platform provided by Almabase is helping us connect with alumni who have fallen off our radar. The system facilitates the communication of alumni with one another and encourages alumni to invite their classmates to join the system. Our alumni are able to update their information on the community profile page and then Almabase integrates with our CRM (Raiser's Edge NXT) to update our local alumni records. It has been a wonderful partnership so far and I look forward to seeing where the next several years leads us as we continue to develop this partnership.

Pros: Almabase is a very intuitive platform for alumni community management. The system is easy to use no matter whether you are an end-user or a platform administrator. Creating content pages, events, campaigns, and job postings is a snap as the system leads you through providing the details you need to complete each task. As a former webmaster, I appreciate the ability to go into the code view for content pages so that I can manipulate pages to display according to my personal preferences.

Cons: There is very little to dislike. Being pickey, I can say that the back-end of the platform does not always work the way I would want it to work. However, that is based on my own personal preferences for how I use the system and is not based on how the system was designed to function. For example, If I upload a spreadsheet of names and email addresses so that I can send out email communication to a group of constituents, the system will sometimes overwrite the name I associated with an uploaded email address because someone else (usually a spouse) has used that email address as their email address of record for their alumni community profile. So, Almabase will default to the name associated with the community profile instead of enforcing the name I uploaded with the spreadsheet. So...if I wanted to use the Almabase communication center feature to send a birthday greeting to Jane Doe...I would need to make sure that her spouse, John Doe, is not already using the email address I have on file for Jane as his community profile email address. If that does happen, Almabase will insert "John" into the dynamic first name field of my message instead of using "Jane" that I had associated with the email address in my spreadsheet. This platform-based setting to enforce the first name associated with an email address is my only issue but it is minor when compared with the robust features we enjoy.

Alternatives Considered: Graduway

Reasons for Choosing Almabase: NetCommunity was cost prohibitive and did not offer the robust features that come as a standard part of the Almabase platform.

Switched From: Blackbaud NetCommunity

Reasons for Switching to Almabase: Almabase was a more cost-effective solution and it integrated easily with our CRM. The baseline features offered by Almabase were more robust than those offered by their competitors and they were offered at a price that was more tenable for our budget.

"Almabase Alumni Software has transformed the way we interact with alumni"

Comments: Overall just love it, we looked at other companies including Graduway, Almaconnect, Salesforce, Raiser's Edge, Mentor City, Alumni Channel, 360 Alumni and just so much more but we found Almabase to be the best option for the price, service, and functionality. As a small size school, we wanted an alumni network but knew that it wasn't going to have 10,000 alumni so they were able to work with us to find a pricepoint that was right for us.

Pros: I love this software because it has many great features such as a giving platform which lets you organize campaigns for donations, an alumni map so you can see how big your alumni community has grown, the alumni database/directory which is so helpful for me to write notes/keep track of job placement/address information---it also syncs with Linkedin so when alumni get new jobs i don't have to manually add it. The customer service team is so helpful, they are available by email, chat, or phone and answer my questions almost immediately or within the day. There's also a job board for us to add jobs or alumni can add it too. There's also an email system so that's helpful. They even built me a student directory so students can have a profile too which we can transition into alumni accounts.

Cons: Nothing, it works great. We've been really happy with it.

Alternatives Considered: Alumni Network, Alma Connect, Digital Alumni, MentorCity, Alumni Channel, Graduway and Salesforce Sales Cloud

Reasons for Switching to Almabase: Just overall ability to customize the platform to what we want, like brand colors, look/feel so it was in line with the university.

"Would recommend!"

Pros: I have enjoyed using the events module, mentorship and job opportunities features.

Cons: Some of the modules were complicated to develop, the ease of use was harder than expected.

Alternatives Considered: Graduway

Reasons for Switching to Almabase: We are a small shop and it seemed like a better fit.

"Used to set up an alumni database for our existing and lost alumni"

Comments: It was a useful tool in having all of your alumni information in one area and offered options that we ended up not using.

Pros: The support staff was very helpful in the setup and in addressing any issues that we had. The overall building of the "base" was fairly easy.

Cons: It didn't stand out enough as unique or needed to continue the yearly contract. We ended up using our new web platform to incorporate a signup form and keep alumni up to date.
