You guys rock! No nonsense powerful software and great support = You guys rock!

While the interface has a steeper learning curve some other programs, it allows for much more customization and analysis than the other programs I have played with. The support staff (Kevin) is lightning fast to respond to any issue or question. I have been using Trailblazer for almost a year now, and can't imagine switching to another database.

A Useful and Effective Automated Solution for Political Committees

Trail Blazer was a HUGE step up from running our committee on Excel, Word, and email.

PROS

As Treasurer of our committee, I use all of the financial functions as well as the campaign finance reporting function. Trail Blazer makes my job easier and more efficient.

CONS

Being a geezer, the lack of ability to increase font size presents challenges at times.

Reasons for switching to Trail Blazer Campaign Manager

Primarily for the SQL Server database at first. We wanted to generate analytics to make door knocking more efficient. As we have gained experience, we use more and more functionality.

Trail Blazer has filled a need for us.

We are able to keep up with donor/grant makers, and adopters and engage them for fundraising purposes. The ability to sell tickets to events or raffles is also nice. I'm pretty sure there's much more I could be doing with this software...just haven't had the time to really dig in further and figure that out.

PROS

I have enjoyed the email campaign feature. The pricing has been appropriate for our organization for the most part.

CONS

I wish it was windows based and more user-friendly. It seems 'clunky' compared to other databases I've utilized in other organizations.

Reason for choosing Trail Blazer Campaign Manager

I was not involved in the decision...however, I'm sure pricing was a big factor.

Essential to adequately track your Fundraising

PROS

Trail Blazer is a user-friendly and straightforward way to track and report all information essential to fundraising - donors / contact info, contributions, pledges, events, and communications. Donors: Easily track contact information, contribution history, log notes, Household information and a MULTITUDE of other areas. Interfaces with our state's voter database to easily import voter data on the spot. Contributions: Simple data entry feature to assign contributions to a committee / client, dates, amounts, with notes / reminder pop ups if a donor is nearing his limits. Pledges: Tracking, with ways to send communication reminders though the system as follow-up. Events: Creation of events, logging of contribution, record of interfacing with a donor for responses / notes. Communications: Ways to create and send mass or individual emails with email tracking. Additionally, the customer service is second to none. I can email or call at any time of the day and the team is ALWAYS able to help me. They are always open to creating new features to make things work even better!

CONS

Email interface takes some time to get used to. Connecting through a Remote Desktop (on a Mac) sometimes presents challenges.

Vendor Response

We can either perform a remote session with you, or schedule a live one-on-one training session that can be recorded.
