Communicating Your Message
Gnosis incorporates an integrated communications center that supports all types of communications with your constituents - via email, hardcopy, exports, mail merge, SMS text messages and more.
As the Communications Center is fully integrated into the Gnosis system, you are able to easily implement intelligent options such as emailing to valid email addresses and sending postal mail to all those not reached by email. Gnosis tracks delivery and open statistics so that you know at a glance how your communications are performing.
As an added bonus, with the inbuilt tools for mail merge and email generation, you no longer need to struggle with file uploads, downloads or opt-in/out with an external email sending service. All communications history is recorded in every constituent profile - including information on whether that constituent actually read the email that was sent (not available for all recipient email systems).
The power and freedom of Gnosis Communications Center also integrates with event management, daily, weekly and Monthly “message of the day” schedules, refer-a-friend, and forward-to-a-friend functionality. This adds a level of sophistication to any of your communications campaigns and outreach activities. Email marketing becomes a powerful ally in communicating with your constituents. Event marketing becomes a simple extension of your event management process.
Gnosis includes receivables for invoicing memberships, subscriptions, event bookings, hard pledges, resource bookings, facility rentals and any other purpose for which you need to track receivables from your constituents.
With integrated tools for adding on-line invoice review and payment by debit or credit card, Gnosis takes care of tracking receivables and making it easy for your constituents to manage their account and pay invoices online.
Both receivables and donations processing transactions funnel through an accounting batch management system that can be augmented with our optional Quickbooks accounting interface that supports automated posting to your Quickbooks system via an interface that gives you total control of the process.
Receipting, Banking and reconciliation is fully implemented within Gnosis both with and without the optional Quickbooks interface ensuring that you will invest less time managing accounting than you ever thought possible.

Managing your membership database has never been easier.
Gnosis for Nonprofits includes a subscription management system that provides exceptional versatility for membership management and all other types of subscription or periodic-based activities. This means that your membership database is always up to date and the overall challenge of membership management is made significantly easier.

Automated recurring debit/credit card billing for subscriptions supports set-and-forget subscriptions that help you to secure an ongoing regular revenue stream for memberships, subscriptions, pledges, and services.
Subscription services may also be linked to restricted web page areas or downloadable resources, allowing you to make certain content only available to selected subscribers.

Gnosis for Nonprofits boasts an amazing inbuilt event management, online event registration, and calendar system. It supports events from the most simple “one time registration not required” variety all the way to complex multi-day, multi-track, multi-optional-session selection.
For the more complex event management, Gnosis also supports the optional allocation of returnable (i.e. headsets) or consumable (i.e. sandwiches) resources and supports pre-ordering and allocation of those resources for event registrants.
Online event registration and event marketing information may also be targeted to certain demographic or membership-based groups. You may filter events to have different calendars appear on different pages of your website. Complex arrangements of displaying public events to the general public and member-restricted events to members only are easy to achieve with Gnosis.
Gnosis seamlessly shares event management information for use in your event marketing and communications activity including email marketing and website promotional campaigns.
Encourage online event registration by using “one-click-to-register” functionality available via Gnosis event marketing emails.
