We recently talked to Craig, the Director of Advancement Business Intelligence at Auckland University of Technology in New Zealand about their recent trial and why they decided to continue using Engagement Tile to score their constituents. 

“It is so good I am tempted to keep it a total secret!“

AUT is now using it to immediately visualise their key constituents so they can manage the implementation of an effective stewardship program as well as manage “forgotten donors” with a small team.

Check out some other takeaways from our Q&A. We hope it encourages you!

There’s a Tile for that…

We build NXT

Add-ins that make

your job easier

Are you convinced that if only NXT did “xyz” your job would become easier?  

Or are you looking for a feature SO niche you doubt whether it’s even available?

Well, Blackbaud has done an incredible thing and have made it possible to have Add-In tiles on your NXT pages.

They look & feel exactly like native Blackbaud – but are actually little apps in the background – meaning the only limitation is your imagination!!
