About Trail Blazer Campaign Manager

Trail Blazer Campaign Manager is a cloud-based political campaign software to help political parties’ manage their election campaigns and interact with their supporters. The solution helps in tracking voter information and creating a central voter database to be accessed by anyone. Trail Blazer solutions are primarily used by political parties across the United States for raising funds and managing donations.

Trail Blazer Campaign Manager provides a complete voter database for major states in the US including Arizona, Colorado, Florida and Washington DC. Party managers can slice & dice their voter database to target specific voters and reach their most prominent voters for campaign support. The solution also helps in tracking important election schedules and sending prior alerts so that campaigners never skip any critical date.

Trail Blazer Campaign Manager allows campaigners create bulk mailing lists with complete voter information, to sending mass emails to supporters. With an inbuilt PAC management feature, political parties can file their FEC and state compliance reports. Campaigners can integrate the solution into their website and online platforms to receive donations directly from their website or Facebook page. Additionally, the solution also helps to manage volunteers, event, documents and calendar.

Trail Blazer Campaign Manager is a member of the American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC) and also complies with PCI standards of data security.

While the interface has a steeper learning curve some other programs, it allows for much more customization and analysis than the other programs I have played with. The support staff (Kevin) is lightning fast to respond to any issue or question. I have been using Trailblazer for almost a year now, and can't imagine switching to another database.

As a small non-profit post-secondary trade school, Trail Blazer software lets us handle our communications and fundraising tasks with relative ease, so we can focus our staff time on the creative work of interacting with the people involved with our school.

Pros

I loved that we were able to get set up with Trailblazer relatively easily and start using it for emails to our constituents, registration for events, tracking donor contributions, and reporting on results. We got to focus on the creative work of building our organization, rather than the details of the software. Customer support staff were always great to work with - quick to grasp the problems and quick to resolve them.

Cons

The email functionality is more limited than something like MailChimp. We've decided the tradeoff of having everything in one database outweighs that downside. But I miss some of the customization of content and also giving users the choice to opt-in or out of various topical mailing lists.

We are able to keep up with donor/grant makers, and adopters and engage them for fundraising purposes. The ability to sell tickets to events or raffles is also nice. I'm pretty sure there's much more I could be doing with this software...just haven't had the time to really dig in further and figure that out.

Pros

I have enjoyed the email campaign feature. The pricing has been appropriate for our organization for the most part.

Cons

I wish it was windows based and more user-friendly. It seems 'clunky' compared to other databases I've utilized in other organizations.

As our donor database, Trail Blazer is reliable. It is reliable in that it gets the job done, but requires a lot of extra time and effort to execute simple functions, as the names and systems for organizing data logically are often pretty hard to understand. While there is amazing customer support and plentiful resources on their website, I wish it were a more user friendly platform so I didn't have to rely so heavily on their support staff. That being said, because the support staff is so accessible, I'm mostly okay with this system, and am grateful for all the staff who have assisted me over the years.

Pros

What I love most about Trail Blazer is the amazing customer service they offer. I call their support staff about once a week for help and they are always incredibly friendly, patient and helpful. Also, it is a very powerful software with many options for managing our data.

Cons

The user interface is clunky, there are a lot of unintuitive formulas. It is a very powerful software but I find it quite hard to use.

I transitioned to my current position in the midst of the global pandemic - which was not ideal. Trailblazer has been the ONLY company that I work with that provided immediate, consistent, and friendly training support and admin support. I've worked with several databases in my roles with various non-profit organizations, and the team at Trail Blazer is far superior . Kudos!

Pros

The software is user friendly and understandable.

Cons

I haven't had any negative experiences so far.
