Close to everything I want, but not quite there.

2018-06-05

It is convenient having an all in one nonprofit CRM rather than using multiple services (like Excel, DonorPerfect, MailChimp, etc.)

Pros

NeonCRM bundles together database management, email communications, event registration, and membership payments. It is more convenient than using separate services for each feature. The Neon team updates frequently and introduces new features and integrations. They have an extensive user submitted FAQ database.

Cons

Neon's marketing schtick is that their product is designed by nonprofit professionals. Using NeonCRM, I quickly realized I want a product designed by software engineers. There are small annoyances like not being able to use the 'enter' key to submit search queries and larger issues like not being able to use custom membership forms for individual or household memberships (only business memberships). Their customer service is limited to two email addresses per license.

Affordable and Good for Us

2017-08-31

I would really recommend using the Idealware report to compare platforms. Each organization has different needs and requirements for their data. The Idealware report compiles information from a lot of different vendors. I would also recommend doing the free trial before purchasing to see if it is a good fit.

Pros

After looking at many platforms (DonorPerfect, Little Green Light, Salesforce), NeonCRM seemed to be the one that worked best for our needs.

Cons

The customizations seemed a little complicated and will require a lot of time to set up. Other platforms had more information about the donor all in one place, as opposed to scrolling through many sections.

All 3 Things You Need it to Do - and More!

2011-08-23

You want CRM software to do 3 things: 1. Safely store you data 2. Allow you to leverage your data 3. Allow you to interact with your organizations website Most systems do the first 2 - they better (!), NEON does the third one too and better than any other product in the industry. My only hope is they don't get bought by Blackbaud. I've done 15 or more conversions with many different product and have never been happier than with NEON. Feel free to drop me a line and I'll share more with you.

Pros

Training - online video training is FREE - you won't get that with eTapestry or DonorPerfect.

Cons

The reports function features a URL for a particular report (dynamic too). This is is fantastic! But many board members and volunteers need to be reminded to access the url and it would be great if NEON would schedule the delivery of reports on an ongoing basis rather than the user having to schedule the delivery of the reports. A small thing, but one less thing the user has to think about doing.

Response from Z2 Systems


Thanks Mike! we appreciate your review! As for the ability to email reports out to board members, you can set up an account in NEON, create a recurring activity to have NEON email your board member with the dynamic report link on, for example, the first of the month every month.

And as for the comment about the BBaud buyout, no chance. :) We're in this for the long haul to create the best cloud based CRM for nonprofits and to ensure we offer it for less. Plus, NEON is built as an All-in-One platform that can house fundraising/donors, membership/members, events/registrants and track all of this in one system. Plus, our frontend connectivity to nonprofit's websites allows everything to funnel right into NEON automatically. Times are changing and there is no longer a need to spend so much for powerful software and IT staff to manage servers.

NEON, by Z2 systems, Inc., is here to stay and evolve with the technology needs of the Nonprofit industry. Count on it!
