ASI is the company behind the iMIS 20 Engagement Management System (EMS)™ — the leading global donor management solution that helps fundraising organisations of all types/sizes increase efficiency, lower costs, and grow revenue. iMIS 20 allows non-profits to manage donor/supporter data, events, online fundraising, crowdfunding, email marketing, and websites in one cloud-based, mobile-ready, and PCI-validated system that's easy to set up and affordable to use.

Paul Ramsbottom, ASI Asia-Pacific's Managing Director, will present ‘Self service – an online opportunity for fundraisers' during the conference at 3.20pm on Thursday, 2 June in Room 209. The presentation will show how non-profits can benefit from allowing donors and supporters to manage their own engagement, interactions, and profile data online. Mr. Ramsbottom will demonstrate how — by providing constituents with a personalised account that includes choices for engagement and opportunities for participation — organisations can improve retention and acquisition rates. Attendees will see how content can be easily tailored according to donor interests and how to turn latent supporters into champions.

ASI will also exhibit at the event and provide complimentary copies of the second edition of its highly popular book, ‘The Not-for-Profit Exec's Guide to Improving Organisational Performance,' co-written by ASI Chairman & CEO Bob Alves and President & CTO Don Robertson.

Those who aren't able to attend Digi.Raise can still learn more about iMIS 20 at complimentary webcasts ASI has scheduled for Thursday, 16 June at 2pm AEST and Thursday, 14 July at 2pm AEST. Learn more at
