Affinaquest Changes the Game

Backed by the Salesforce platform, it’s automated, auditable, and incredibly flexible, allowing you to scale and streamline hundreds of campaigns to meaningfully connect with your entire donor community.

Trusted by the Best in Higher Education

We signed on with Affinaquest for our new CRM right before the pandemic sent all of our university’s operations to a remote status. Our remote implementation process with Affinaquest has been a great experience! The Affinaquest team has been awesome to work with, going above and beyond in their responses to all of our questions or concerns along with their laser focus on staying on schedule with our project plan and deliverables.
With Affinaquest SmartBatch, we’ve increased upfront speed and decreased our back-end auditing challenges. Reducing errors and increasing speed has been one of the great features of Affinaquest.
The most important characteristic of our new system is that Advancement leadership is recognizing the value of this technology. From data transparency to administrative efficiencies, we are trending in the right direction in every area.

Successfully Migrate from Your Current Infrastructure

We’ve helped multiple universities switch from Advance, Banner, Millenium, Colleague, Raiser’s Edge, and other platforms.
