Dartmouth uses ADVIZOR as a strategic solution across its fundraising and alumni relations teams. Our visualizations have allowed their teams to see stories in the data that were simply not visible with standard reporting and query tools. ADVIZOR’s data discovery and predictive modeling are used regularly for answers that need a quick turnaround. The dashboards help the Dartmouth team see what’s working, and enable them to create segments and prioritized lists for follow-up and assignment.
The results have been substantial:
(1) Annual Giving improved the yields of its appeals and the efficiency of its call center.
(2) Major Giving has found new prospects and shared best practices across its team of field officers, improving performance.
(3) Alumni Relations has found the right volunteers for committees and generated more focused target lists for mailings (trips, events, etc.).
(4) Portfolios are optimized with the best prospects, with the help of ADVIZOR’s predictive modeling in Prospect Research.
(5) Senior Management receives the high level overview and deeper understanding critical to managing a complex operation.
