“With these new services, iWave is demonstrating its commitment to provide the data and insights organizations need to navigate these challenging times,” said David M. Lawson – Co-Founder & CEO NewSci, LLC

“We are so excited to offer News and Obituaries, and working with Dow Jones has been a pleasure,” said Mary Cote, VP Product, iWave. “We have been hearing from the market that there is more information about their donors that is important and having this new data real-time allows you to not only find out more about them, but also get it faster than any of the other datasets currently in our product. With the recent release of our “add custom gift” capability, you can not only get new intel from News and Obituaries to include in the donor profile, but you can also have it instantly impact your profile’s capacity and score.”
