The Bourbon Review

2019-04-19

They have gone out of their way to really help us get our subscription management under control and would highly recommend them to anyone needing subscription service help.

Pros

The SimpleCirc team is amazing at implementing customizable processes and working with us to make our backend the smoothest as possible.

Cons

The UI can be hard to navigate at times and the report feature, though powerful, can be updated.

Security.Satisfaction.Sanity = SimpleCirc

2019-04-24

If the user experience is confusing or the management is complex, the exports and reports are doomed.

Pros

They know what functions are necessary and, as importantly, which are not so the data is clean and correct.

Cons

No reflection on it, but I hate even slight learning curves. I want the impossible, which is to hit the ground running. It has taken me a short amount of time to realize that the developers HAVE really thought of every possible publisher need and expectation.

Perfect Solution for the Job and Affordable!!!

2019-04-25

I have been able to cut my subscription management expense by more than 75%.

Pros

The software handles all of our subscription database management and usage needs - including all delivery options and platforms including digital and combo subscriptions.

Cons

Could use some supporting how-to documentation however their customer services is so superior and quick it was not a problem at all.

Makes list management easy

2019-04-16

SimpleCirc allows management of active subscriptions simple while creating a stress free experience for customers.

Pros

This program is simple from a user perspective and enables customers to check the status of their subscriptions and renew online.

Cons

The only draw back to the software is it requires a coder to customize the page. It is not required but in order to achieve some degree of aesthetics it is needed.

Excellent Customer Service

2019-04-16

Pros

Top notch customer service.

Cons

I'm sure this could be accomplished with a data export, but it would be much easier and less time consuming to have a way to tell them apart when running the simple cash sales report.

SimpleCirc for use as a newspaper subscriber system

2019-04-11

Pros

Plus, customer service has been excellent up to and including adding new features to make our experience with the system better.

Cons

My only 'con' was the change in the way our previous circulation software tracked expiration by date, while SimpleCirc counts number of issues remaining.

We are small publisher looking for an affordable cloud based product.

2018-07-16

Pros

The fact that subscribers can manage their own account. It has saved us several hours per week of processing and re-entering orders in our server base system.

Cons

You have to have internet access in order to use the product and if your in a remote location it tends to lag a bit.

Simple Circ is easy to use

2019-04-16

The support for Simple Circ was great. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] worked through the weekend to get us up and running. When we realized that we needed some additional fields, he made that happen. My experience with Simple Circ has been great.

Pros

It is user friendly. Easy to understand and easy to use.

Cons

If you have single copy or buy sale relations with 3rd parties, this software doesn't accommodate those types of things.

Great product for publisher

2019-04-16

Customer service has been ultra-responsive to our needs - customer service is top notch.

Pros

Ease of use - you can be up and running literally in 15 mins

Cons

Not really anything- our last fulfillment shop has an e-commerce store for us to sell one-off products like books that this doesn’t have, bit for what it is it’s pretty close to perfect.

Excellent. Game Changer.

Pros

how easily it makes renewals and address changes. In general how it manages our subscription list.

Cons

If you are taking the time to develop a feature you must see it as a value and we would like to do whatever we can to grow our business.

SimpleCirc is a fabulous product

2020-05-21

We were using woocommerce and Subscriptions plugin on our website. It was AWFUL - it took forever, you had to put people in in multiple places, the mailing list wouldn't pull correctly - just AWFUL. I found other software options but they either didn't do quite what I was looking for or they were insanely expensive. When I found SimpleCirc, it seemed like the perfect answer. Even with my frustrations with some of the limitations, it's still been a huge help and I really like it.

Pros

Its SO easy to manage our subscribers, our mailing list and handle renewals and new subscribers.

Cons

I run into places where I can't do something I need or want to do and that's frustrating. I can't set up postage based on the amount my buyer spends - which I need for back issues and books. I have trouble finding things because I don't know if they are in the overall settings or in the publication settings - a streamlined settings page would help with that. I can't change things I want to change - like editing the sub categories in a custom field. I have to have somebody else do that for me. I can't make global changes, which I would like to be able to do but it's not as important as the things I've mentioned first.
