We no longer have to hand key our information into our database.

Pros

This software can do so much for your data. Gone are the days where everything needs to be hand-keyed. Once a profile is created you can copy and adjust as necessary. The training offered is great and the customer service is exceptional.

Cons

For some of us it was difficult to use at first. It can do so much, that some of our staff missed a few steps in the beginning.

We are able to setup imports to RE without having to do too much work on the incoming files

Pros

It adds a lot of great functionality that isn't in RE but should be. It's also probably quite a bit easier to use than the Blackbaud Import, however we're well trained in that so we still use it at times

Cons

Mainly the lack of Australian support, and that I always feel like we aren't taking full advantage of it

Streamline out daily import/updates

Pros

Reliable, bug-free product. Adding/configuring multiple data points/record types makes this a much better solution than the standard Import function of RE.

Cons

Error messages are non-user-friendly, not easily diagnosed. There is a current bug in 3.5.1.2 that no longer renames the import file after the import is complete. We've had to change our processes until this bug is fixed.

Easier Importing!

Pros

I love that I don't have to create ImpID's for every field. I love that it imports so quickly. I love the ease of it.

Cons

Unable to update. Exceptions report has changed since we started using Connector and now I don't receive why something has exception'd out (list the id that it doesn't see, or if it exception'd out because someone has the record open). During a simply import like adding only an appeal code to an existing record it exceptions out and then wants to add as a full constituent.

Faster, easier, more efficient processes of getting new/updated data into the RE database. Any future plans for NXT functionality?

Pros

The fact table categories do not need to be specified in the import file. As opposed to RE's Import, a separate column for the table category is required. And I also really enjoy the side-by-side comparison of new and existing data in the database.

Cons

Don't think I've seen an import function for events in RE. Having this would be ideal for event imports for constituents and non-constituents.

The greatest benefits of this software have been the ease an accuracy of getting new and updated information into our database.

Pros

It truly works as it says it does. Information goes into our database with ease and accuracy. The importing process is seamless once the profile is set up.

Cons

It wasn't as seamless of a process to get everything going once we were in the hosted environment. This may not be as much of an issue now, but some consideration for staying in constant contact with all parties involved to ensure all parts are connected and running properly by promised date.

Hard to get on the phone with support staff. So if you are in a middle of importing - you have to wait to hear back from the support staff. Instant support whether chat/phone will be great addition.

Our team has been able to use this software to reduce the amount of person hours needed for several recurring large tasks monthly and through out the year.

Pros

Using ImportOmatic has allowed us to reduce the number of staffers needed and time taken on our large new constituent loads. It has also allowed us to integrate some third party info into our gift batch processes.

Cons

Some of the phone and address options are not compatible with our current data handling methods, but that is not necessarily a critique of those options. We've also experienced the need to change the same linking across multiple individual, but related, profiles when there were changes in methods within the source of the data.

Departmental respect for willing to overcome a learning curve in order to better serve our data needs.

Pros

The ability to use csv data files for gift and constituent import into RE is a huge time-saver in the long run. Over the last decade, our data entry projects have grown exponentially and this tool is exactly what we needed.

Cons

The learning curve is difficult, but with patience and practice it gets better. I do not specialize in API nor coding, but with the support team I am able to comprehend IOM and use their tools. Once data is imported we use integrity reports to help fine tune our data to our internal standards.

Time saver, could check errors before the import was done.

Pros

Once you do get started,it integrates real well with Raisers Edge. A lot of fields you can import. Import time reasonably fast. I like the function that you can pull up the RE record right on the same screen.
Reasonably priced.

Cons

A long learning curve. Explanations and instructions not too clear for a new user. Would like some hard copies of the training for training purposes. They updated our version without letting us know what fields had been changed, confusing!

The software is easy to use. The profiles take a bit of time to set-up in the beginning, but once you have them set-up importing data is simple and efficient.

Cons

My least favorite aspect of purchasing this software was the customer service. In the initial purchasing stage, I experienced terrible customer service with trying to get the contract implemented and scheduling introductory conference calls. Not sure how a company that supports so many customers is lacking in the customer service area.

Pros

Being able to get days of work done in a few hours. Now that I have this tool, my workload has been quite a bit better and less stressful. I appreciate that tremendously.

Cons

Not as intuitive as I would like - I have to manipulate my data quite a bit. I believe we could have used a full fledged, in person type of training. I'm unsure if the company's contract doesn't cover that and perhaps that is why we were lost for the first few months of using it. Once we went through things with one of your reps, she was so patient with us and walked us through it until the bulb went off in our brains! I wish I could remember her name because she is awesome!
