Pros

I also want to note that the support team is outstanding and I was extremely satisfied with the helpful and knowledgeable service.

DW

Dawn W.

The one thing that impressed both my co-chair and I was the amazing customer support. The people we spoke to knew their product and provided the help we needed.

KJ

Kathy J.

It created a appealing site for our on-line auction. The support was amazing, turn around time in minutes, it was like having someover your shoulder.

Carolee A.

Pros

Customer service is amazing. All the representatives are patient, kind, and so knowledgable about Bloomerang.

RM

Ruby M.

The thing I like most about Bloomerang is the integration features. Being able to track and send information quickly and seamlessly is super important to our team.

DP

Dana P.

Excellent software- worth the money, great for fundraising beginners who are still familiarizing themselves with donation entering and data management.

CC

Catherine C.

Cons

I had some trouble using the messaging features like emails. Hard time getting it formatted the way I wanted it and it lost some of our graphics after posting.

LS

Linda S.

They had horrible customer service and wanted to know WAY to much personal information about me in order to open an account. But that isn't Silent Auction Pro's fault.

John F K.

If you are looking for a platform on which to manage your silent or live auction – onsite or virtual – look no further.

BP

Bea P.

Cons

After pleading with them for weeks for having missed the window by a couple of days they have not returned dozens of calls and just say "it's policy" even during a global pandemic and recession.

EN

Erin N.

They have predatory contracts and very shady renewal schemes that lock you in and give you no way to cancel.

Erin N.

Working with Bloomerang has been the most frustrating experience. Every week there is a new excuse for why they are behind.
