Pros

Brilliant Directories is by far the best membership site on the web. They offer a fully integrated solution that enables you to start a membership directory business in as little as 2 days.
They are professional and have excellent technology that fits my needs. Their platform allows for users to monetize it and Brilliant Directories is not counting my potential revenue.
I have been using Brilliant Directories for 5 years and it just keeps getting better. Love the Facebook group, Webinars and client contact.

Pros

On top of that, customer support is outstanding and very fast, you can expect your questions and requests to be answered in a mere matter of hours.
I would specifically like to mention seamless and quick support services by the team. In all, the investment is worth the money and it helps big time in Alumni Management.
I'd definitely recommend Vaave to anyone considering building an alumni platform. Not only is their software good, their support teams are really good.

Cons

No page templates to choose from. Html coded) - No Trial/Free membership - Sitemap not working with search engines.
A little concerned about the 10gigs of space and bandwidth, that seems very low for a directory.
We really don't have any major or minor complaints about the software. I was expecting that something so complex, with tons of features, would be a nightmare to set up and run.

Cons

Just one feature with incorporating images in profiles, no provision to hide.
Lack of social media features, a community for users and also lack of automation features. We would like to see these features included in the upcoming product upgrades.
Manual authentication of members in case of high numbers it is difficult.
