Salsa vs. Abila

Salsa is a modern alternative to Abila.
Here’s why you should consider switching.

1) Modern Interface

The 2017 Donor Management Systems Guide by NTEN/Idealware said this about Abila, “Fundraisers who have tracked data by hand may appreciate Fundraising 50 from Abila, as the main screens of the app look like index cards.”

Salsa offers all of your traditional development features presented in a modern, browser-based software system that stores data in the cloud and is easily accessible on tablets and mobile devices.

2) Fully-Integrated Salsa CRM and Salsa Engage

With Salsa, your organization get’s a single sign-on integration between Salsa CRM and Salsa Engage, giving you all the tools you need for successful online and offline fundraising. That means you’ll engage, cultivate, and fundraise all in one place, with one login, one support team, and one knowledgebase.

We have unified our record keeping. The disparity and inconsistancy is over now that we have a system that can combine several aspects (ticket sales, email, donation management, card processing) and consolidate the information without manual entry!

3) Scalable

If you’re looking for more than just donor management and marketing automation, and need a scalable solution that offers online fundraising, online advocacy, event registration, or peer to peer fundraising, your choice is obvious. With Salsa, all you have to do is flip the switch to activate additional modules.

Executing online advocacy or peer to peer campaigns with another system or vendor just doesn’t any sense. Track all your constituents in the same database of record and you’ll be able to target with the right message, at the right time, online or offline.

4) Client Success
