SNS works with any modern database but as Blackbaud partners we are particularly familiar with data exchange with the Raiser’s Edge.

SNS Apps

SNS offers the option to track both LinkedIn and Facebook data. Users are presented with a branded application page which ensures they give full opt-in consent to sharing data with your institution.

Once permission is given, SNS will automatically check for changes to their profile data and ensures the user stays engaged with the app over the long term with its fully automated re-engagement process.

SNS Data

Social networks such as LinkedIn and Facebook are huge repositories of valuable constituent data. More importantly, users of these sites are often very diligent about keeping their profiles up to date due to professional and social motivations.

Whilst some of your members are ‘super engaged’ and will fill out paper or electronic forms, the vast majority find it hard to find the time, even if they want to stay engaged. SNS enables this busy majority to stay connected with far less effort.

SNS Data Package Options

You can choose from three levels of data management depending
on the capabilities of your data processing tools.


Deploy fully branded social apps, monitor data and receive all the raw data collected.


After retrieving social data, SNS will efficiently match the data to records in your own database and ensure your data is augmented with your own database IDs.


Full data control with a customised data model that understands your own database. SNS Sync provides the ability to compare all collected social data against your own database, resulting in fully de-duped and de-conflicted data.
