iWave | January 30, 2023

The fundraising intelligence platform iWave recently announced its release of new enhancements. The latest updates for Salesforce integration on the Salesforce AppExchange include Automated Scoring. This new feature allows fundraising professionals to understand the potential of donating to new constituents as and when they are added to Salesforce. In addition, nonprofits get automatic updates of the latest wealth and philanthropic intelligence in Salesforce and can optimize their cultivation efforts with the help of customizable scoring triggers. The iWave and Salesforce integration help fundraising professionals develop internal Salesforce data with iWave's fundraising intelligence to identify ideal donors, find new prospects, customize outreach, and raise more donations using a frictionless workflow.

The configurable scoring triggers include a change of address, a new donation and more.
