Cedar Rapids, Iowa (PRWEB) September 14, 2011
Agilon LLC and Converge Consulting LLC, both based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, today announced their strategic partnership to help higher education non-profits improve multi-channel marketing and fund raising campaigns through a new data analytics service.
The new service, Actionable Analysis, combines the Constituent Relationship Management (CRM) and non-profit fund raising campaign expertise of Agilon with the analytical marketing expertise of Converge Consulting to help higher education non-profits measure and report on fund raising and other marketing campaigns.
To introduce the new service, Agilon and Converge are hosting a series of web seminars to demonstrate the power of marketing data analysis and its impact on campaign results.

“Colleges and universities are communicating with their donors and alumni through multiple channels including email, Facebook, Twitter, and direct mail,” said David Best, president and CEO of Agilon. “Our combined capabilities and expertise will truly help them make the most of their marketing and fund raising resources while improving their campaign results.”
