StratusLIVE, a provider of cloud-based fundraising, relationship management, and business intelligence solutions for nonprofits, has released version 7 of its StratusLIVE for Fundraisers, which is built on the Microsoft Dynamics CRM platform.
The company just last week enhanced its address verification services directly within StratusLIVE for Fundraisers.
"We are very focused on delivering state-of-the-art improvements in data-driven decision making," said Jim Funari, StratusLIVE's CEO, in a statement. "Users across our client base want simple yet powerful analytics and reporting delivered on any device and this release moves us closer to that objective."
Some major themes expressed in the application and platform capabilities of StratusLIVE Version 7 include the following:
- Productivity: Major improvements in the user experience and an increasingly seamless experience between CRM and Office 365, including improvements in the Outlook experience, Excel and Word integration, and new integrations with Microsoft's Cloud Products.
- Social engagement: Further integration with Microsoft Social Engagement with social listening and social analytics. In addition to external social sources like Twitter, Facebook, blogs, videos, and news, other sources will now be exposed, such as search boards, forums, and custom sources via RSS, including non-public sources like Yammerr, new collaboration and group capabilities similar to Office 365 and intelligent sentiment analysis.
- Business intelligence and analytics: Real-time campaign analytical capabilities allow marketing professionals to model, test, and execute segmentation strategies with predictive analytics. StratusLIVE leverages Microsoft Power BI v2 release and SQL Server Reporting Services Mobile Reports. Power BI analyses can be exposed directly within CRM dashboards.
- Mobility: Major enhancements in mobility with the delivery of the Microsoft CRM Mobile application, a re-imagined mobility app for Web, tablet, and phone. It supports native CRM experiences across iPhone, Android, and Windows phones. It now includes off-line capabilities and cascading deployment settings across all devices and form factors,. When designing forms in CRM, users can preview the tablet/phone forms and dashboards directly in the browser.
