Salsa CRM vs. eTapestry

Salsa is a more powerful eTapestry CRM alternative.
Here’s why you should consider switching.

1) Robust

Salsa CRM is a robust yet easy-to-use option for nonprofits of all sizes and offers a very robust query builder, delightfully easy batch gift entry, as well as in-app mail merge and label printing saving you countless hours on direct mail appeal projects.

In the 2017 Donor Management Systems Guide by NTEN/Idealware, Salsa was ranked as having ‘excellent’ functionality for tracking events and tracking other built-in interactions, and ‘good’  at gift prospecting and proposals. eTapestry CRM was ranked as having only ‘fair’ functionality in all four areas.

2) Easy to Use

Your time is precious, and you’re competing for attention and dollars against larger nonprofits with sophisticated marketing techniques. You need the best tools and the ability to execute campaigns quickly. 

Salsa‘s easy to use interface offers built-in automation, reporting, drag and drop form builders and industry best practice content layouts that are just a few examples of how intuitive the Salsa system is for nonprofits, even for non-technical users.

I didn't realize it at the time, but I really like how easily I could create queries/segments of donors. It has "If/Then" approach with clicks of a button that is a lot easier than another CRM I used (eTapestry by Blackbaud).

3) Consistent Pricing

Salsa doesn’t punish you for breaking through certain thresholds of constituents or supporters in your database. We want you to grow like crazy, without worry crossing some artificial number where you’ll have to start paying significantly more money.

Unlike eTapestry, Salsa allows you to send an unlimited number of emails, plus our pricing is consistent -- starting at $179/month plus $0.01/record.

4) Client Success Hub
