Using Automated Data Sync with Raiser's Edge NXT

What is the Automated Data Sync?

EverTrue's new automated Data Sync is an API-driven data connection for accounts using Raiser's Edge NXT that allows data from this platform to automatically send to EverTrue on a daily basis. We all know the value in having up-to-date constituent information. This sync ensures your data is kept fresh and saves your most prized asset - your time!

There is so much more to love about the Data Sync! 

  • This connection lets us do the work for you. You’ll be up and running in a matter of days with EverTrue’s Data Sync. After a short consultation, you’ll connect to EverTrue via a secure API key. We’ll pull in the data we need, transform it to our data model, and your EverTrue platform will be live in no time. And since we’ll update information nightly via automatic data pulls, you never have to remember to update the EverTrue platform.
  • Once your data is in EverTrue, we make the magic happen to ensure you will be using always-fresh constituent insight. We will enrich your data with TrueView insights, which include career information and social media profiles. We will also connect your constituents to their Facebook profiles, giving you insight into their engagement with your Facebook pages. You can leverage additional insights with Career MovesWindfallThankView, Eventbrite, and more.
  • EverTrue keeps you on top of current donors and identifies great new prospects, allowing you to find your best constituents. Use Saved Searches to combine your data with EverTrue’s continually refreshed insights and receive notifications when your alumni and prospects change jobs, engage, and give.
  • The Data Sync eliminates SFTP file transfers and scheduled exports from your CRM. To bring data that EverTrue gathers on your constituents back to your CRM, you can set up automatic, daily exports of proposal information, contact reports or interactions, and stage moves. Pairing these exports back to the Data Sync keep both EverTrue and your database up-to-date.
