Altru Connect Overview

If you are a Blackbaud Altru User who is suffering from common nonprofit financial management frustrations there is now an integrated accounting solution that tackles them and integrates with Altru.

With Altru Connect, Altru transactions post directly into Financial Edge NXT™. This means data entry is minimized and streamlined, and instead of having to block out hours of time to data entry, you can post on your preferred interval, get the data you need quickly, and spot problems as they happen, rather than weeks later. 

Integrating Altru with Financial Edge NXT™ through Altru Connect allows users to easily map out designations from Altru for proper posting, and once the designations are mapped, there’s minimal maintenance. Transactions, including donations and grants, load almost instantly, and anything that doesn’t have a designation sends you an alert. 

When you need to check revenue records, every transaction from Altru has the date and a link attached so you can easily research your revenue records. 

Altru Connect Success Story

Altru ConnectSamantha Christen of the Portland Museum of Art is leveraging Altru Connect to save time, post more frequently, and get the data she needs fast. With transactions and revenue coming from a variety of sources, the Total Revenue Report in Altru Connect makes it easier to dig into numbers and check revenue records quickly to ensure accuracy.  She’s able to save time while improving accuracy! 

“Data Entry – it takes all of that out and because we don’t have to do all the data entry, we can do it more frequently. We’re getting all that financial data into Financial Edge weekly… Because of that timeliness, it helps us figure problems out when they happen, rather than a few weeks later.

Saving time with data entry, saving time with problem solving are the two biggest, but it is also the consistency because everything looks the same and goes to the same places and takes off the manual work.”
