Shawnee, Oklahoma (PressExposure) April 19, 2008 -- Oklahoma Baptist University (OBU), located in Shawnee, Oklahoma, announces it has selected Agilon, LLC for its new Development/Alumni fundraising software system. Agilon, based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, will provide the new Advancement Information Management System to support OBU's growing alumni and development information technology needs.
The new web-based enterprise fundraising system solution includes Agilon's ONE donor and gift management system with additional modules for Events Management, Campaign Management, Scholarships, Constituent Connection online community, and Rel@y e-mail delivery system to enhance alumni relations and communications.
"With the need to upgrade our existing system, we looked at a variety of solutions, including a few that were a part of a larger campus-wide system. We chose Agilon's ONE because of its proven capabilities and complete web browser and Smartphone access to all fundraising information," said John Patterson, Senior Vice President for Development at OBU.
"We are beginning a major fundraising campaign, and we're looking forward to having ONE to facilitate communication with our constituents. Having a new online interface for our fundraisers and managing our scholarships and events in one integrated solution will be a major benefit," commented Patterson.
"We look forward to supporting Oklahoma Baptist University in achieving their philanthropic goals," says David Best, President & CEO of Agilon. "By implementing Agilon's ONE, OBU will have the best fundraising and relationship management tools to support their fundraisers as they prepare for a new capital campaign."
