Salsa vs. Sumac

Salsa is a more comprehensive Sumac alternative.
Here’s why you should consider switching.

1) 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, online fundraising 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.

2) Robust

In the 2017 Donor Management Systems Guide by NTEN/Idealware, Salsa was ranked as having ‘excellent’ functionality for mail merge and ‘good’ social media and querying functionality. Sumac was given a ‘fair’ rating in all three categories. Salsa actually ranked higher than Sumac in 13 of the 19 categories studied including ease of use, support and training, emailing, and managing donor information.

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.

Twelve years ago I founded an organization with a vision of advancing women's health, safety and economic security. With an ambitious vision like this, we need a CRM system that made life just a bit easier for our small staff. Salsa Labs has provided the affordable solution to help us manage our fundraising, advocacy and communications. After using their services for a year, we've built up our supporter base that we're now able to organize, track and engage with a few clicks of a button!

3) Easy to Use

98% of nonprofits are small to mid-size organizations, who can’t afford a team of tech-savvy experts to manage their systems and the integration of a host of third party tools.

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.
