Almabase overview

What is Almabase?

Traditionally most alumni engaged with the institution at events, but that has changed with the evolution of social media. Young alumni want to engage with their alma mater digitally and institutions have to respond by meeting them where they are.

Navigating the social media and digital engagement landscape with its innumerable possibilities is complex, especially for small shops with limited resources. Almabase provides a systematic approach to growing alumni participation efficiently and sustainably over years.

You can manage your events, email marketing, online alumni directory, alumni map, job board, mentoring program, all using Almabase's integrated software. Almabase automatically tracks every alum's engagement (Facebook, email, volunteering, gifts, events) and gives you the insight you need to drive your program forward.

Almabase provides excellent value for our alumni

Used daily for less than 6 months

Almabase is at the center of our alumni strategy. The goal is to provide alumni with a high-quality, tangible benefit to grow their affinity for our school and inspire volunteering, fundraising and more. The Almabase team is great to work with — not only addressing questions and issues quickly, but being a partner in devising our strategies.

Pros
Product itself is super easy to use and the customer service is top-notch. Map feature is impressive and we have received great feedback from our alumni since launching recently. Almabase allows us to provide our alumni with a high-quality experience — keep them in touch, but also giving them networking/career opportunities they desire. The email functionality inside Almabase is so much better than other products like Constant Contact. We can easily segment and send communications by graduating class, location and more. The Engagement Snapshot is also a very useful tool — we can easily see how engaged our alumni are.

Cons
No complaints so far! We have thoroughly enjoyed our time with the Almabase team so far.

Almabase Alumni Software has transformed the way we interact with alumni

Used daily for 1-2 years

Review Source: Capterra

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.

ONE STOP SHOP!!!

Pros
The ability to house almost our entire alumni program on one platform has been the most impactful part of using this software. Prior to subscribing to the Almabase services, we had spreadsheets and documents across numerous sites. Now, we have our directory, events, and communication centralized in one place. This has been a game-changer for our program.

Cons
The great thing about any issues we have had is that they are resolved almost immediately. The customer service has been exceptional and the Almabase staff takes the time to reach out to provide best practices and other ideas that similar schools are implementing throughout the year. We appreciate our ongoing relationship with Almabase to positively impact and bring together our alumni.

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

Used occasionally for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2018-07-16
Review Source: Capterra

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.

Almabase Really Helped Our Alumni Association

Could not be happier. TO the overall look and ease of the site to the care that the staff offers... there is no better fit for us.

Pros
Almabase is extremely user friendly and easy to manage from a backend perspective. A lot of the site is customizable and the customer support team is always there to work with you through any issues you have. It is also extremely easy to integrate to our database at the school, which was super valuable.

Cons
There's honestly and truly nothin that I dislike. The team at Almabase is always on working on new ways to improve their site, and will even take suggestions when you'd like to see something happen.
