KonnectAgain joins exclusive network of organizations providing complimentary solutions to Blackbaud technology products.
Dublin, Ireland, (May 13th 2015) - KonnectAgain, a growing alumni relations software company headquartered in Dublin and with operations in San Francisco, today announced that the company has joined the Blackbaud Partner Network, a group of leading technology and services firms providing nonprofits with the solutions, applications, and strategies they need to make a difference in their local communities and worldwide.
As a Blackbaud Technology Partner, KonnectAgain joins a network of companies that provide applications and solutions that extend Blackbaud (NASDAQ: BLKB) product functionality in new and exciting ways.
“The partnership we are announcing today will help our existing and future clients to combine the strengths of the KonnectAgain platform with their existing Blackbaud products” says Tommy Dunton, Head of Sales at KonnectAgain. “Our clients are really excited about this level of integration, and how it can impact their current alumni relations programs in a big way.” Mr Dunton was speaking at the launch of the partnership at the KonnectAgain headquarters in Dublin, Ireland.
KonnectAgain’s platform offers access to alumni employment history, education history and up-to-date contact information that flow seamlessly into Blackbaud products like The Raiser’s Edge®. KonnectAgain also improves alumni engagement, enhances fundraising campaigns, streamlines administrative functions, and offers at-a-glance data and analytics for a more effective alumni program. “It would have been my dream product as Alumni Director,” adds Business Development Director Liza Bennigson, the former Alumni Director at Menlo School in Atherton, California.
“As we travelled across Europe and the United States, meeting with institutions of all sizes, we quickly realized that for KonnectAgain to scale, it was important to be aligned with key industry players such as Blackbaud” says Jayne Ronayne, CEO and Co-founder of KonnectAgain. “Existing Blackbaud clients using KonnectAgain will quickly find their lost alumni and see their databases being populated with up to date alumni information, as well as significant improvements to both donations and engagement.”
