“The fundraising capability is just so intuitive and logical, making the donation management process simple and fast. I was offered support by ToucanTech to import my fundraising data but I decided to enter the data myself to learn the system - it took me less than 2 days to manually enter historical donations from 2010, organise them by fund, (including sub funds within that) and I will now be able to slice and dice the data in various ways to analyse our donations. Very exciting! I look forward to using the donor pipeline section next and really maximising on all the possibilities with the ToucanTech software.”
Khadija Ansari, Development Coordinator, The John Lyon School
“After reviewing several options to build an online platform for Helios HR’s talent and client communities, ToucanTech provided a stand-out solution. We chose ToucanTech because of the clean design, user-friendly functionality, and wide variety of features within its infrastructure. We like that we can use the platform to engage our network by sharing resources, highlighting hot jobs, connect mentors, send tailored emails, sell professional development courses and promote events. We are grateful for the partnership the ToucanTech team has provided. Not only have they been very supportive and flexible, they excel in communication and feel like a true partner in our success!”
Natalie O’Laughlin, Communications Manager, Helios HR
"Our experience of the ToucanTech has been very positive, enabling us to launch a new alumni website for Old Kelletonians and clean-up our database to ensure we have more accurate records to build on for the future. When we've contacted the support team we've always received a quick response, in spite of the time difference as a school based in Hong Kong.”
Katie Kwong, Development Officer, Kellett School - The British International School, Hong Kong
“The ToucanTech website has been a great platform for us to manage our database of alumni and coordinate events, publish news and circulate our popular newsletter, the ’Hoot’. The ToucanTech have provided hands-on support to design elements of our website, prepare newsletter templates and talk us through the search filters we need!”
Lee Haines, Alumni Manager, Windlesham House School
"We've been using ToucanTech for just over two years to manage our Old Boys' database, eNews and website. We use the system for a range of activities such as Regional Dinners, Reunions and our Hallowe’en Ball, and for extracting mailing lists for the annual Old Campbellian magazine and selling OC merchandise online. We've found it easy to use and, most importantly, have been particularly impressed by the responsiveness of the ToucanTech team whenever we've had any questions – everyone has been polite, patient and professional and understanding to our needs."
Walter Murphy, Manager, Old Campbellian Society
"I'm very happy with the ToucanTech website design and the flexibility for displaying content and news and running clubs and events. It's been easy to get to grips with the system, particularly the email and CRM (activity tracker) functionality which I've found intuitive. I've had quick and helpful responses from the ToucanTech team regarding consent options, email footers and various other small, but important, features that we want to get 'right' for our communications."
Emma Styles, Funding and Development Officer, Colyton Grammar School Academy Trust
"We've found the ToucanTech database and search filters so much easier to use than other databases, saving us time in a busy development office. The events functionality is sophisticated and gives us a lot of options when planning alumni activities and the support we've received from the ToucanTech team has been first-class."
Marianne Bradley. Foundation & Alumni Relationship Officer, The King's School, Gloucester
"ToucanTech have been very supportive for the launch of our new alumni website for St Edmund's, including helping me to create email newsletters, post events and publish news. We're a small team and I only have one day a week to work on the alumni project, but I’ve found the ToucanTech system straightforward to use - it's easy to find and update database records."
Lucy Burrell, Alumni Manager, St Edmund's School Trust
"We're really happy with the design and flexibility of our ToucanTech website, which we use for news and communications and for the recent launch of our first fundraising campaign for a new bursary programme. We've found it easy to use the news section and publish and share news stories and on the occasions where we've struggled we've always had a fast response from the ToucanTech support and training team."
Rachael Snaith, Bursary and Development Officer, The Harrodian
"ToucanTech has been invaluable to us in the short space of time we have used it. It is a very intuitive system so very easy to use even to those non-techy in the office! The ability to segment our data and run reports is brilliant and as we increase our alumni engagement I’m particularly looking forward to running reports to measure participation levels."
Rachel Rawlings, Head of Development and Alumni Relations, The Oratory Schools Association
