You have Raiser’s Edge or another fundraising
database? No problem! Let Trylon handle your data entry
and provide you with clean, correct, cost-effective importable
files, already prepared for your database.
- Accuracy – all
codes are computer checked for accuracy to ensure that
they will import cleanly and correctly.
- Consistency – names
and addresses are entered to our exacting standards and
are CASS certified. With consistent formatting standards,
our data entry professionals avoid the quality problems
normally associated with staff turnover, volunteer entry,
or lack of training. You get years of experience starting
from day one!
- Low cost – through
the use of finder numbers we can offer some of the lowest
data entry prices around, even as low as 8¢ each
when the finder number is barcoded! Prices are based on
the data entered instead of a “one price fits all”
- Automatically generate acknowledgments
and/or fulfillment, without delay. Our acknowledgment
formulas are completely customizable – letters,
cards, packages – every imaginable type of Thank-You
can be mailed directly from our data center.
- All data is CASS certified
for maximum postal discounts. But we go one step
further. If an address does not automatically generate
a zip+4, our operators will look up the address in the
nationwide zip+4 files and correct it. Without this extra
step, misspellings and errors can still creep into your
- Forget to print the appeal
ID or fund code on the mail piece? No problem!
With our finder numbers, we can retrieve the proper codes,
regardless of whether it was printed or not.
- Donor forgot to return the
coupon with his check? No address given? No problem!
From the name on the check and maybe the postal cancellation,
we can retrieve the original finder number, with the complete
name and address and with the proper codes as well! No
longer will you have that mysterious “White mail”
category, and your results will be all the more accurate.
- Automatically de-duped
with your house file. If we find that the donor is already
on file, we de-dupe it and pass the proper constituent
ID back to you for updating.
- Automatic entry into a “nixie”
or “kill” file. Every change of address
is added into the file for suppression against the next
acquisition mailing. We can even enter returned mail directly
into that file. Even when the donor corrects their name
and/or address, the old listing is automatically entered
so it won’t be re-mailed.
- Don’t have Raiser’s
Edge? As long as your database allows for batch
importing, we can create the batches in the format you
- Don’t have finder
numbers? Allow Trylon to prepare your renewals
or your acquisition merge/purge and we’ll guarantee
equal or lower prices than what you’re paying now,
plus we’ll create the finder numbers for free.
