Pros

This is really good software that has strengthened our Donor Relations work. It's a very solid piece of software.

JG

Joe G.

I really like that user friendly, easy to use and streamlined from one the beginning to the end. I like how easy it is to navigate and implement the whole software to our small organization.

HP

Hillary P.

If you set-up your system with having in mind the information you will like to pull in reports, then you will love the reporting as much as I do. The reports are very easy to create and understand.

JT

Joshua T.

Pros

The integrated donation forms (using Stripe and GoCardless) and sign-up forms are excellent. I like how Beacon is always trying to improve their product and listen to customers like us.

PT

Paul T.

We like that the platform was built specifically for non-profits and with smaller teams in mind. Beacon is customisable and is super easy to build and great for a team with limited resources.

SH

Sarina H.

Excellent care and customer service, as well as a very good piece of software.

LB

Lizzie B.

Cons

Bizarrely it didn't feel this was a focus for DonorPerfect, they tout having automatic processes but this wasn't entirely accurate. It was automatic, after you processed or did a few steps.

MB

Megan B.

Reporting can be complicated and difficult even for experienced users. Events management is extremely difficult and complicated, and lacking a lot of features.

AR

Anonymous Reviewer

The Change of Address (COA) feature that is an add-on completely messed up our database.

BT

Beth T.

Cons

With the product being so new there have been some teething problems and barriers where critical functionalities are not yet built, such as integration to gmail and calendar.

SH

Sarina H.

This particular problem will be short lived as Beacon are now working on an automated system for inputting addresses so this should be up and running very soon.

JE

Jane E.

Genuinely can't think of anything that I dislike about the platform.
