Why use Altru?

Key differentiators & advantages of Altru

  • Advanced Online Tools for Every Department 
    Your organization and its mission are unique. So is each one of your visitors. When you have the flexibility to slice an appeal to their specific interests, you can build a stronger connection through your marketing, event invitations and development campaigns. When your online marketing tools are in the same solution as all the constituent data you need, it’s easy to put your organization ahead of the curve.

  • State of the Art General Admission Ticketing 
    Reliability. When you’re opening a popular new exhibit, nothing’s more important than the dependability of your museum ticketing software. Altru is hosted on Blackbaud’s servers, so there’s no fear of your old server going down. Accessibility. Altru is completely cloud based, and allows unlimited user licenses at no extra charge, so you can sell tickets from anywhere, including processing credit cards with a fully integrated payment processor from your tablet. 

  • Efficient Merchandise Sales
    In the best cultural organizations, everyone is working together towards a common mission. Merchandise sales shouldn’t be isolated from the rest of your organization. When you’re an Altru customer – they’re not! Everything is working seamlessly together so you can sell tickets or memberships from the retail counter and not have to re-enter the information in another system.

  • Superior Membership Management and Reporting
    Your members are your greatest asset. Members are the easiest and most cost effective source of future donors and board members. With Altru’s membership features specifically designed for cultural organizations, you have the reports and analysis tools you need to retain your membership base and identify and acquire new members as well.

  • More Donor Insight = More Fundraising Revenue 
    With all your constituent data in one place, you can determine the total value of a member and their household—annual membership, merchandise sales, donations, programs, and events attended. Plus, ResearchPoint can be enabled inside of Altru, giving you a seamless experience to enhance your prospect management activities alongside your patron and donor management.
