A great alumni management tool with an amazing support team

2018-06-18

Pros

I love that this software is able to integrate with LinkedIn and Facebook to automatically capture alumni updates.

Cons

For a more technically proficient user, it may be good if more of the customization such as changing fields and even uploading new batches of alumni data could be left to the institution themselves to handle.

Our goal was to communicate with our alumni in new and more efficient ways, and we wanted to be able to see and track engagement.

Pros

Almabase has an outstanding communication center and data studio that allows the right people to see and get the information they need to communicate with alumni.

Cons

The website is not as flexible as it could be and we wish it had a few more options to show pictures.

The Almabase platform and its team are amazing!

2017-07-28

We can also set-up event registrations, pay portals and interest forms and have the data collected to be imported into Raiser's Edge whenever we want to do that.

Pros

Almabase also provides the possibility to involve our students for an alumni mentorship program that has been heavily requested by our alumni.

Small school that uses Senior Systems

2018-09-13

The communication has improved greatly and we are excited to bring more alumni to the platform so that they can start benefiting from Almabase.

Pros

We are still new to Almabase and are learning new things all of the time.

Cons

This software does not "talk to" Senior Systems, so it does make it difficult when information is updated on one platform. However, Almabase made a point to visit our school to see how we use Senior Systems and is going to try to find a way to communicate with it. They may not succeed, but they care enough to try.

Best value for money alumni platform out there!

2018-07-24

This software help us consolidate our database, emailing and website saving us a lot of money. Tracking emails and engagement has been very helpful.

Pros

-It is a website, database platform, and bulk email service. -Payments can be taken through the website, including membership payments. -The developers are constantly making improvements to the software and any improvements are made available at no extra cost. -The customer service is very responsive.

Cons

-Administrator/backend usability could be improved. This is something we have mentioned to them and they are working on. -Website pages could do with a little more layout varieties and features. I believe they are working on this also.

Without proper infrastructure, it would be very easy to lose track of alumni after they embark on their careers, but doing so would be a huge mistake on any university¿s part.

They have been very quick to answer any queries. Their customer support is excellent! No cons that I can think of. I have been using it every day and its very rare we come across a glitch which anyways is taken care of immediately.

So far so good!

2018-05-23

Pros

Great customer service and good price compared to competitors. Allows alumni to have a platform to connect and network-- as much or as little as they prefer.

Cons

Most compatible with Raisers Edge, which we don't use- so it will require some manual data entry for administrators once we get updated alumni information from the platform.

2018-05-22

- Integration of e-communication center to send automated emails.

Some features cannot be customized to reflect that, including the wording on some pages or email templates that one would think would be easy to change.

For those who have been here longer than I, their overall response was "this was a long time coming and needed."

Pros

It is easy to use and install.

Cons

I would have liked it if alums could post their own news and events so that the information would be self-populating in real time.

Great Team, Product, and Company

2018-09-16

Overall, Almabase has been a great partner as we begin our endeavor in Alumni Relations. Because of Almabase we have been very successful in our first 8 months. They are constantly giving us strategies to improve and offering assistance. We just had an in-person visit from them that will help us immensely as we enter the second phase of our program. I truly feel they have a personal interest in your success.

Pros

My main pros are: - Ease of setup - Creative solutions to problems - Partner with you to create a plan for your success - Great price - Always improving - Great communication center - Fast response

Cons

- Some bugs with the software when doing more advanced features. However, they fixed them very quickly.

Outstanding!

2016-10-03

Since we are still learning about and understanding the product ourselves, we regularly reach out to our Almabase support contact who never fails to help immediately.

Pros

Customer service, ease of use.

Cons

The price, though reasonable, may be a stumbling block to smaller organizations, like ours. We are hoping the success of the product will help support our funding request.
