Panorama Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about Panorama 's features:

Christine W.

Great software, but needs some fine tuning

2019-07-15

The overall experience has been positive and does help us keep track of our donor database and donor amounts, which will help us create a capital campaign and other fund-raising opportunities.

Pros

I like the setup and ease of entry of donor information and tracking how much donors give.

Cons

Not very intuitive to use and creating thank you letters is not the easiest process. User documentation and support could be better.

We wanted to move to the Cloud version but the feature we needed membership was available

2018-07-23

We used the desktop version for 7 years to manage donors, donations, memberships, classes and events

Pros

We asked numerous times when membership would be available and never heard back.

Cons

Didn't convert the features were needed to the new version and no one could give us any idea when the features would be available.

Kimberly H.

Long-time user with good overall satisfaction. Predominately small-to-mid size shops.

2018-07-23

Pros

Easy to use notes section and ability to back-date entries allows to gather comprehensive data on a donor profile.

Cons

It's a CRM tool, so the data-entry is still a heavy lift.

Giftworks has been a very good fit for our small non-profit: cost wise, ease of use, and features.

2018-07-25

Great way to keep up with donors, current and potential.

Pros

The ease of entering data and the connection to Mail Chimp are the most important features for us.

Cons

We're using the Membership module and would like to move to the Cloud version when it's available.

John O.

I was a consultant for Giftworks desktop, which is now Panorama and in the cloud.

2018-07-10

The capabilities include the ability to manage volunteers, which is unusual for this level of software.

Pros

One of the things they are conscious of is the ability to have the constituents access the software and have donations, events, and memberships done online, which many others have not been able to do.

Cons

Because of what makes the software good, also makes it limiting for many users who require a lot of configuration. There are some very sophisticated systems that would be more suited for that type of need.

I've used this for a while and it is okay. I don't always get a response from customer support.

2018-07-11

Pros

It's low cost, it was easy to put the donate widget on our website, you can store a fair amount of information in donor profiles.

Cons

Lack of customization options in the giving form, when downloading donations to GiftWorks, the memorial/honorarium fields do not format correctly, when using SmartEntry you can't include campaign information for donations.

Falling Down In Service

2018-03-09

I have had to complain twice about the same technical issue. The problem takes weeks to get fixed. People don't call back when they say. I won't use them again after this year unless I see noticeable changes.

Pros

Relatively easy to use and ability to generate reports. The money easily transfers into my account; no issues with that.

Cons

Some parts of the interface don't work and it takes weeks for the company to fix.

jodi k.

setting up site was far more difficult than advertised.

2017-05-11

Pros

i like the support team and the reasonable cost. i also like the way reports are set up and accessed.

Cons

I don't like the many difficulties I had setting up site and having to rely on customer support for some of the administration. I also don't like having to use first giving's url instead of being able to go straight to site through my onw url.

Awful! Declined over the years!

2021-02-16

We paid $600 for this service for the fourth year in a row, and now we can't set up our event or reach a real person to help us.

Pros

This service has declined over the years. Customer support is virtually unreachable.

Cons

The new interface is not stable with Safari.

They are always a pleasure to work with and answer questions as quickly as they can.

Pros

It's easy to re-create events for success with proper templates.

There are some pieces that you just can't do in terms of high-level coding for website ease but I know this is an area they are working on.
