Fabulous solution to new Donor Database Software!

2016-12-08

We have now come light years ahead with our web-based solution and have all the donor data we need at our fingertips.

Pros

Wed based, great reporting, letters, email, payment processing linkage to our website, donor snapshot and campaign management

Cons

The household icons and linkage, the lack of limited log-in options for our volunteers (versus giving them full database access)

Heart House Heroes

2016-01-17

Pros

The ease of use. The system is very intuitive. I started out using CRMs over 10 years ago. Back then you had to have intensive trainings etc. typically all we need to do is review a video or find a support link for answers. This is helpful for us because I team members who have never used CRMs.

Cons

Need event management payment fields built in or more customizable for the website integration.

TOTALLY INTUITIVE, easy to use, no matter which campaign is perfectly adapted and beyond.

2018-08-10

Pros

Integration in social networks, commitment, efficient management and relationship of donors, email marketing, reports ... the simplistic but efficient design, a luxury tool for a sublime purpose.

Cons

The consolidation or processing of gifts / Groups / donors by lot / Classification is not possible, it is very manual or individual. there is a considerable difference between the actions you can do in the web environment and the mobile app ..

Bloomerang Review

2021-03-10

I am enjoying Bloomerang.

Pros

I like how it integrates with quickbooks online and the ease of running reports and donor management

Cons

Still needs to work out some kinks with integration with qb online. For example the check/reference number or authorize.net transaction number needs to map to qb's reference # as well as the description/memo

This is our primary database for all donations and contact management for donors. It is critical to our operation.

Retaining Donors made simple

2019-11-13

The automated emails sent out to donors is quite a useful feature that has also cut down a lot of time which would have been spent on this process.

Pros

Anyone who runs or is a member of a non governmental organisation knows that obtaining and keeping track of donors can be quite challenging.

Cons

There is little to no problems with Bloomerang since it has brought organisation to non governmental organisations management of their donor base.

Bloomerang rocks!

2021-05-20

Having a donor management system has simplified the process of maintaining our donor database.

Pros

Before, we used a spreadsheet (by hand :()trying to keep up with all the data. Needless to say, we missed documenting several of the donations.

Cons

Also, a mail merge feature would be useful.

2021-01-08

Bloomerang makes donor management easy and simplifies my job tenfold.

Pros

My job requires a lot of outreach and reporting and any time I am having trouble figuring out how to pull the exact data I need I just jump on chat and get fast and thorough information and assistance.

Cons

There isn't anything Bloomerang is missing from where I stand and the functions I need for my job duties.

Not terrible, but could be better

2021-09-10

Pros

It is pretty easy to run basic reports.

Cons

It would be great if the dashboard was customizable for different users; email and letter templates are somewhat limited; more customizable features needed; would be nice to have a way to attach fact sheets, stickers, etc. to constituent's profile page to make some information easier to find.

A good product

2019-11-15

I’ve really enjoyed this product. They were great in getting us set up, are communicative, their emails and tutorials are very helpful, and they have excellent customer support. I know I’d like more bells and whistles, simply because I am a one-man gang for my organization and so just want it all. :)

Pros

I like that this is cloud based software for donor management.

Cons

I wish that the software was more “one-stop shopping” in terms of general customer management/relations beyond giving and that there was greater email capability and social media integration.

Customer Service like no other!

2021-05-12

With the customer support team that is so knowledgeable, available and all-around wonderful, I always feel that I'm taken care of and the ability for them to educate is so important.

Pros

This is the first time we have used donor management software, so it is magical for all it can do!

Cons

Since I don't use it every day, the steps to get reports, imports, generate letters are not on the tip of my fingers or mind...and there are alot of steps.

Good value

2019-11-13

Before purchasing Bloomerang our donor management was done in an excel spreadsheet.

Pros

It offers tracking for ALL donor interactions including, an online collection form that can be linked to our web-site, flexible reporting, the ability to generate acknowledgement letters, send mass emails, and much more

Cons

It doesn't link to quickbooks online, so donations made by check have to be manually inputted into both Bloomerand and quickbooks.

Biggest development project we've purchased

2020-08-20

They have saved us thousands of dollars by being the all-in-one system for donor management, event management, online giving and statistical reporting.

Pros

It is fairly simple to use and provides a clearer understanding of our donor base and how they function.

Cons

Sometimes the reporting details can be a little clunky to highlight until you get a strong handle on the nuances of the system.
