IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 21, 2012) - Sage North America today announced that it is entering into an agreement with MobileCause, a leading web service platform for mobile giving, engagement, analytics and donor communication, to bring mobile fundraising applications to its nonprofit customers.
The application will first be integrated with Sage Millennium and in the future will integrate with other products in the Sage nonprofit portfolio such as Sage Fundraising Online and Sage Fundraising 50. The platform is device neutral, meaning that as long as the users can receive a text, they can receive the call to action regardless of the type of phone they have.
"As mobile becomes more and more important to our constituents' everyday lives, a mobile communication platform as comprehensive and thoughtfully designed as MobileCause is invaluable," said Krista Endsley, senior vice president and general manager of Sage Nonprofit Solutions. "This offering will allow Sage Millennium users to reach potential donors on a new level and likely open up a new demographic of donors."
"Our mobile giving platform will allow Sage nonprofit customers to use new technologies to fundraise and engage with donors," said Doug Plank, CEO of MobileCause. "Mobile giving is a vital step to the sustainability and longevity of donor-funded nonprofits, especially considering the increase in mobile usage and the fact that younger generations are getting rid of land lines all together."
