Campaign Season is Almost Here, Make e-Pledge Easy!

August is here, and you know what that means — campaigns are here! Be ready to rock e-Pledge this season by doing some pre-campaign prep work.

Are you copying web notes and options to each organization account that runs an e-Pledge campaign? If you are, you are working too hard!

e-Community is designed to work efficiently and is designed to be virtually maintenance-free. Where e-Pledge is concerned, your e-Pledge staff should be able to set up EVERY organization in your database at the same time. The secret is in the Tailoring Account.

The Tailoring Account should be used to set up all of your common e-Pledge settings. These settings will apply to all organizations and employees. As soon as you've done this, all of your organizations are ready!

Once you have this in place, you need to add the web options that are exceptions to the Tailoring Account. (Of course, every setup is different, but this is the foundation of it.)

As always, our Customer Care department is ready to assist you in making your tasks easier. Let us know when you are ready to stress less!

Why You Should Improve Your Online Presence

Avoid losing donors by making your web presence appealing to all audiences. A cohesive brand across all your online channels, such as pledge pages, social media, and blog will make your organization’s impact shine and bring in more donations.

Do You Have a Client Interested in Single Sign-On for e-Pledge?

Andar supports Single Sign-On (SSO) with e-Pledge. The feature allows web users to sign on to their Andar e-Community website from a third party website without having to enter a separate user name and password. Why should you do this? Because the fewer clicks a user has to perform, the better his/her donation experience will be.

Many organizations using e-Pledge have already implemented the Single Sign-On feature. It is a one time set up per company.

An Easy Way to Reduce Expenses

It's trendy to talk about being paperless. In fact, we could go as far as saying that it's now an expectation.

Why is "going paperless" such a benefit? A clever answer is the impact on the environment. The quick explanation is that by using less paper, there will be fewer trees cut down, and we (and the earth) need trees for oxygen.

Another intelligent reason for "going paperless" that's a little closer to home is your organization's bottom line. For example, by switching your paper billing to online billing, you can save on printing costs and mailing costs. Your Bill Me donors can view their account balance and billing statements online, plus they can download their latest statement and make an online credit card payment on the same web page. This process, together with emailing PDF statements, cuts on your costs and also empowers the donor by giving them more information when they want it.

Get online statement and payment info below.
