Custom data conversions from Bloomerang

Why choose a custom conversion
Custom conversions are where we make the magic happen. We start with whatever you have to give us and work with you to make sense of it all, to clean it up, and to get it into Bloomerang in a way that supports your fundraising goals.
Not to mention the incredible data consultation you get through the personal support of your Custom Conversion Project Manager. That’s right. You’ll have a name, an email address, a phone number to call whenever you have a question throughout the entire process.
What do you get from this process?
