Driving Success in the Digital Era: How Ovrture Empowers Development Teams
Step into a time machine and travel back to the early 2000s. Fundraising was a whole different ballgame back then. Snail mail was the preferred mode of receiving gifts, and the entire team huddled together in a single office, disconnected from the wonders of real-time communication tools like Slack. Even checking email while working from home was a daunting task.
Fast forward to 2016 (the year Ovrture was born), when the fundraising landscape had transformed. By this point, online giving took center stage, and donors craved a deeper understanding of the specific impact their gifts made. The concept of remote work slowly crept in, allowing occasional flexibility for fundraising teams. Technology had started to revolutionize the way we operated.
Now, in the present day, development teams are breaking boundaries and embracing a new way of working. Picture this: team members scattered across different states, yet seamlessly collaborating towards a common goal. Remote work and hybrid setups have become the norm, powered by the ingenious wonders of technology. Ovrture, our favorite platform (we’re biased, we know), has played a vital role in supporting this digital advancement office.
The New Ovrture
At Ovrture, we believe in accelerating and streamlining your work, allowing you to focus on what really matters: successful cultivation and stewardship of major and leadership donors. With the launch of “The New Ovrture” we’ve doubled down on supporting every member of your team with enhanced user roles and responsibilities, designed specifically to support the digital advancement office.
The System Admin
Our System Admin now has more capabilities than before, including the power to build sites and reports. We understand that many of our clients have superhero-like System Admins who also juggle gift portfolios or stewardship contacts. That’s why this update just makes sense. It’s a game-changer for those multitasking masters.
The Application Admin
Introducing the mighty “Application Admin” role! Gone are the days of burdening one person with the duties of a system administrator. With this role, you can have an unlimited number of staff members wielding near-System Admin powers. It’s like having your very own Avengers team, ready to centrally manage your Ovrture system. No more worries about “if so and so wins the lottery” scenarios. We’ve got you covered.
The Data Admin
To all the data enthusiasts out there, we salute you! We know how crucial your role is in advancing your organization. That’s why we’ve introduced the “Data Admin” role. This role grants access to the holy grail of data and its functions. We see you, advancement services team, and we think you’re awesome!
Finally, accidentally deleting data can send shivers down your spine. With our new version control for your database, you have more tools at hand to ensure that no data mishap can derail your team’s success.
We are proud that Ovrture continues to evolve alongside the nonprofit organizations we serve. Together, we’ll continue to grow and change, inspired by our team’s motto of Kaizen (good change).
