Automated Imports into Raiser’s Edge made easy with SmartSYNC and Raiser’s Edge Queue

SmartSYNC update brings automated data imports into Raiser's Edge 7 (database view)

We are happy to announce an update SmartSYNC, our integration and automation platform, means you can now automatically import data directly to Raiser’s Edge 7.

The new SmartSYNC SFTP connector in combination with Raiser’s Edge Queue introduces fully automated imports.

Automatically import data from other systems into The Raiser’s Edge, eliminating the need for manual data entry and reducing the time and effort required to complete this process.

Import data into any Raiser's Edge field via SKY API or Raiser's Edge Queue

This update means that as-well as connecting to your Raiser’s Edge NXT database fields via API, SmartSYNC can now access every field in your Raiser’ Edge database, including all the fields only available via database view (Raiser’s Edge 7).
