Speed and efficiency, time and time again

Moving data from sources like the web into your CRM fundraising database – and doing so quickly, efficiently and repeatedly – is a need charities often ask us about. We understand the attraction of making the task as easy as possible. That’s where Datastream comes in.


Keep yourself in control of your data

Data comes at you from many different sources, and in just as many formats. The work involved in moving and re-structuring this data, so that it can be brought into donorflex, involves you spending a lot of time and energy. Third-party suppliers often aren’t able – or willing – to develop specific routines to present their data in a suitable format. That’s why we developed Datastream.

It’s our powerful data-mapping utility that allows you to take structured data in one format and transform it into a donorflex-importable file. You then have the means to import it directly into donorflex, or to create a csv file that contains all of the data.

You can also build a mapping and then pass it on to another member of the team so that they can take the third-party data, run it through the mapping, and produce a file that’s in the right format for a donorflex import. No more manipulating files in Excel.

Tasks that once took hours out of every working week can now be done in minutes.

Here’s the great news....

We’ve made Datastream as in-reach as possible. So, this is a reminder of the deal.

Datastream itself is free and included on your donorflex installation disc, as well as via the client-only My donorflex / Download area of this website. Your donorflex Liaison Manager will need to log in for you, by the way.

Future changes will be provided on the same basis, you’ll be glad to hear.

Don’t forget, if you feel the need for a reassuring arm around our shoulder, or a leg up before you acquire your Datastream skills, we can produce bespoke mappings for you. There’s a standard donorflex charge for that.

In order to use Datastream’s full-blown features, we require clients to book paid-for training so that we can support you in your use of the facility. The training is fully hands-on so that you can learn Datastream inside and out.

Finally, a point we need to stress. You must ensure that your Datastream training delegate is skilled in the use of MS Excel. Training will proceed at a speed that assumes they’re equal to the task!
