Tracking Opens and Clicks
Record the date the user first opened your email and any links they clicked on within your campaign.
These can be stored on the action attributes or on an appeal.
Scheduled and Real Time Processes
Chimpegration gives you the option to set up your processes to run automatically, campaign results such as unsubscribes and opens and clicks; and imports can be run on a scheduled or realtime basis, and you can schedule your exports from NXT to Mailchimp too!
Add tags during export and remove them in bulk based on a query too.
You can synch Mailchimp Groups with a constituent attribute, cons code, solicit code or consent record, making it easier to create accurate segments and manage preferences across both RE and Mailchimp.
Work with non-constituent relationship records; exporting data, managing campaign results and synchronizing both ways between RE and Mailchimp.
Chimpegration View gives RE users a full 360 degree view of your supporter’s journey. It allows RE users who don’t have access to Mailchimp to see a constituent’s activity from within RE, what campaigns they were sent and when, if they opened it and any links they clicked on.
We have used Chimpegration for about 5 years now and couldn’t be happier with Zeidman’s support. Zeidman release regular updates and patches and work proactively to ensure that we are using the best possible version of the product. Whenever we have hit a little bump in the road, we’ve received a prompt and thorough response by the lovely technical support team and have never been made to feel that we are at fault. Zeidman have always been responsive and flexible to any requests and are a brilliant supplier to work with.
When making the move to MailChimp, we were excited to have a resource that integrates with Raiser’s Edge. Now after using Chimpegration, we’re even more excited. It’s so easy to use from adding records into mail chimp and managing campaign results back over. The service has also been so responsive and thorough: there was an issue with the API Code that was fixed in a couple of hours. I highly recommend Chimpegration.
We are very excited to be able to work with Chimpegration. Developing our own integration was not a prospect that we even considered because of the time and cost that would be involved. We are expecting that Chimpegration will be a very cost effective solution for us. Zeidman Development have been very responsive to our needs and helpful through the testing phase. We have had really good experiences using Zeidman’s ID Lookup in the past and are looking forward to this new relationship.
