Orange Leap Introduces Orange Leap Donor Widgets and Launch of Beta Program

November 11, 2010

DALLAS, TEXAS (November 11, 2010) – Orange Leap announced today the successful demonstration of Orange Leap Donor Widgets to customers and partners last Thursday at OrangeCon, Orange Leap’s annual conference for users and developers.  As part of the demonstration, Orange Leap announced the formation of a Beta Test program that will run into early 2011.

Orange Leap provides a highly innovative and easy to use software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that strengthens relationships between an organization and its constituents and donors. Used by organizations around the world, Orange Leap On Demand is a powerful, full featured, constituent relationship management solution designed specifically for nonprofits.

Orange Leap Donor Widgets provide organizations with the ability to literally “cut-and-paste” snippets of code into their existing websites that extend the power of Orange Leap On Demand directly to donors and constituents.  Orange Leap Donor Widget capabilities initially include:

  • Website Registration – the ability for a constituent to register to enter a private area of an organization’s website.
  • Donate Now – the ability for a new or existing donor to make a one-time or recurring donation through a simple and secure form.
  • Sponsorship – the ability for a new or existing constituent to enter into a sponsorship relationship.
  • Donor Profile – the ability for an existing donor to look up their contact information and donation history and update their contact information.

Coming in the next release:

  • Event Registration – the ability for a new or existing constituent to register to participate in an organization’s event.

“Organizations have been struggling with the flow of data between their offline database and their online database as long as the Internet has been around.” Said Randy McCabe, CEO of Orange Leap.  “Syncing and ETL (extract, transform, and load) processes work fine for some organizations.  But those usually operate one-way, they’re not real time, and there is a high probability for errors.”

He continued, “Extending the power of Orange Leap On Demand to the web, giving donors and constituents a direct connection to real data in real time, is the ultimate solution.  Orange Leap Donor Widgets not only complete the communications loop between an organization and its constituents, but also ensures appropriate treatment of all constituents through the consistent application of business rules regardless of how their data enters Orange Leap On Demand.”

Dallas Contemporary Chooses Orange Leap to Enhance All Aspects of Member Marketing, Events, and Fundraising

October 18, 2010

DALLAS, TEXAS (October 18, 2010) – Dallas Contemporary — a non-collecting art museum presenting new and challenging exhibitions from regional, national and international artists — has selected Orange Leap On Demand as its platform for managing the growth of their member marketing, events, and fundraising efforts.

Orange Leap provides a highly innovative and easy to use software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that strengthens relationships between an organization and its constituents and donors. Used by organizations around the world, Orange Leap On Demand is a powerful, full featured, constituent relationship management solution designed specifically for nonprofits.

Having recently moved into a beautiful new facility in the vibrant “design district” and with the addition of new Executive Director Peter Doroshenko (recently President and Artistic Director at the Pinchuk Art Centre in Kiev), Dallas Contemporary finds itself in a wonderful position of growth and change.

“In the past we’ve had a donor database which holds donor information and gift history — with Orange Leap we’re adding a solution that not only captures all our constituent information, but also automates our member marketing and donor fundraising efforts both online and off”, noted Database and IT Administrator Christos Polemenakos.

He continued, “In addition to a powerful business rules engine which gives us room to grow without adding staff, Orange Leap On Demand is easy to use and manages our online marketing and fundraising without having to build and manage complicated integration between Orange Leap and our website”

Dallas Contemporary is another example of a nonprofit organization who has grown tired of the expensive and complicated standard offerings for nonprofits and selected Orange Leap over competitive constituent management solutions because of the powerful automation, ease of use, and robust feature set – all in a true online software-as-a-service platform.

“This is clearly an exciting time for Dallas Contemporary, and we are very honored to partner with them in their growth”, said Randy McCabe, Founder and CEO of Orange Leap. “With our innovative product that actually automates a lot of the fundraising and communications delivered in a true software-as-a-service platform, more and more nonprofits are recognizing that moving to Orange Leap is the smartest and safest thing they can do to help them grow.”

FocusDriven Picks Orange Leap as the Platform to Manage Communications, Marketing, and Fundraising

October 4, 2010

DALLAS, TEXAS (October 4, 2010) — FocusDriven — a fast-growing advocacy group for victims of motor vehicle crashes involving drivers using cell phones — has selected Orange Leap On Demand as its platform for managing the growth of their constituent relationships, communications, and fundraising efforts.

Orange Leap provides a highly innovative and easy to use software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that strengthens relationships between an organization and its constituents and donors. Used by organizations around the world, Orange Leap On Demand is a powerful, full featured, constituent relationship management solution designed specifically for nonprofits.

FocusDriven has been growing rapidly in spite of the lack of a sophisticated tool to manage the many communications, marketing, and fundraising efforts needed to address this significant and growing international problem created largely by the modern phenomena of texting and talking on a cell phone while driving.

“Orange Leap will be our database of record for managing all of the important information about our constituents and donors – however, the real value of Orange Leap to FocusDriven is the automation of the fundraising and communications strategies we build into the system through powerful business rules,” said Jennifer Smith, Founding Board Member and President of FocusDriven.

She added, “In addition to its powerful business rules engine which allows us to grow without adding staff, we also like the fact that Orange Leap On Demand is easy to use and has a robust feature set built exclusively for nonprofit organizations like us.”

FocusDriven is one of many nonprofits who have recently selected Orange Leap over competitive constituent management solutions because of the powerful automation, ease of use, and robust feature set – all in a true online software-as-a-service platform.

“We are very excited to be supporting such an important cause with FocusDriven. They are a great example of an organization whose needs quickly outgrew their technology”, said Randy McCabe, Founder and CEO of Orange Leap. “With our innovative product that actually automates a lot of the fundraising and communications for you delivered in a true software-as-as-service platform, nonprofits quickly understand that moving to Orange Leap is the smartest and safest thing they can do to help them grow.”

About FocusDriven
