  • Simplify event management with scheduling, invitations, and follow-ups

Major Capabilities

  • Contact management: Raklet CRM allows you to keep all your records in one place, customize profiles with custom fields, and categorize items with lists and tags. You can import an existing database on your own or get assistance for an additional fee.
  • SMS and email: You can reach out to your contacts directly by sending SMS messages or emails through Raklet. You pay an additional fee for each SMS message that you send. With the Essentials plan, you can send up to 5,000 emails before you have to pay any additional fees.
  • Online payments: Accept online payments like one-time donations or individual membership fees directly through Raklet. You pay a transaction fee for each online payment that you accept.
  • Event ticketing: You can sell tickets online for your events. Ticket sales incur the same transaction fee as other online payments.
  • Fundraising: You can create custom pages for your organization's fundraising campaigns.

The Raklet Essentials plan does not include automated messaging, recurring payments, and other functionality that is included with other Raklet subscriptions. See a comparison of Raklet subscriptions and a complete list of features.
