Springtime is in full bloom, and with it comes fresh updates and new features to the digital tools progressives love.
Earlier this year, we introduced you to Progress Bars and Pulse, two ways for you to connect with supporters online. Today, we’re excited to share hundreds more time-saving, engagement-building improvements, like integration for Eventbrite events and better document management.
Here are the highlights of some of the biggest updates you’ll see in NGP Spring ’15.
The new Task Management interface helps you organize efforts, view and manage individual and team to-do's, and set deadlines.
It also offers task notifications and real-time tracking to make collaboration more efficient.
Email series is a time-saving tool that incorporates email best practices with the ease of automated outreach.
Within the new email series tab, you can now automate engagement strategies like introducing new email subscribers to your organization through an welcome email series. The more knowledgable new subscribers are, the more likely they are to lend their support in the future.
From there, you can create strategic fundraising email series that focus on prompting existing supporters to take specific actions, like upgrading from an occasional supporter to a recurring donor.
You can even use email series to reengage inactive list subscribers with interesting content, while also growing email lists and improving email deliverability.
With NGP Spring ‘15, you can now attach files to NGP contact records with document management. Whether invoices, grant management documents, or pledge commitment letters, the document management tool makes it easy to upload files and keep everything you need in one place.
Action Relay is a powerful matching algorithm that allows for a 360-view of individuals and the ability to move data to where it can be most actionable.
With Action Relay, users of both platforms can share data seamlessly between NGP and VAN, saving time and enabling more powerful segmentation in NGP. Also, VAN contact records will automatically match their counterparts in NGP, including VAN IDs and demographic data.
NGP Spring ‘15 also makes it easier than ever to import data from ActBlue. Export from ActBlue and push data into NGP with just a single file - no more arduously altering the file or tediously mapping columns prior to import.
Our team of passionate techies has been working tirelessly to bring a lot of new + enhanced features to NGP Spring ‘15 - we’re excited to see how you leverage them this spring and beyond.
