With CRM Advance, Neumann University will save significant time and resources, while increasing the scale of personalized constituent engagement.

“Our university is young and growing quickly,” said Neumann University Vice President of Advancement Carrie Snyder. “To support our continued development we needed a solution that would help our team automate tasks that take time and focus away from priorities like campaign development.
