Allows us to be responsive to both our grantees and staff and provide best possible experience.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Flexibility, better data collection and improved ability to query data, world wide access - I travel a lot but I can still administer the back end from anywhere in the world and have done so. It has caused staff to imagine more because we have been able to implement almost anything they have asked.

Pros

Flexibility to be responsive to staff and grantee needs, easily configurable. On simple customer support requests turn around time is excellent. Because of ongoing training we don't need a lot of support. My all time favorite part of Fluxx is the community where we share ideas, solutions and documentation. The community is knowledgeable and generous.

Cons

Customer support on design issues (things outside maintenance) turn around time can be very poor since Fluxx is growing so much. We have had only one request like that and by time they got to it we had developed our own solution which we actually like better than their proposed solition.

Flexible Grants Management

Reviewed 5 months ago
Pros

What I like most about Fluxx is that changes to the live process or forms can be made on-the-fly. This is very helpful for us as a new foundation still iterating on really everything to do with our grantmaking cycle. Another thing I like is that the company really does listen to its user community, incorporating our ideas into their updates.

Cons

What I like least aboutFluxx is that it's capability is deep, but there isn't a good way to tap into all that is available. When we set up the system, the implementation folks map the Fluxx system to your current process without really sharing what is available/possible. So now that we are changing our processes, there could be features that we could use but we don't even know what is available. Also, there is a lot that can be done with liquid code, but if you aren't fluent in liquid, there really aren't any resources to help except for other users who are busy with their own jobs.

Incredible tools and functionality, lots of set up!

Reviewed 5 months ago
Pros

Fluxx is incredibly customizable. We were able to build and implement grant processes that reflect our values and the desired relationship we want to create with grantees and applicants, rather than needing to create workarounds based on an out-of-the-box or one-size-fits-all system. The connected data structure mirrors the relationship-oriented way we work and makes it very easy for members of our staff to move through the network of grantees and applications. Complex reporting tools are available and there are many features and integrations to experiment with and refine our processes so it can improve from year to year. Additionally, there is a strong Fluxx community to rely on with questions about those features or ways of maximizing the impact of Fluxx.

Cons

Shifting from an out-of-the-box GMS to Fluxx meant that we weren't prepared for the amount of work it would be to set up, build, and maintain Fluxx. Some back end tools like document and email templates require strong knowledge of liquid code. Staff members who are not fluent in Fluxx can't design their own reports, for example, because of how complex reporting in Fluxx is (the knowledge of backend...

Good grnt management tool but steep learning curve

Reviewed 5 months ago

Mostly positive. There is a great community that provide a lot of support and help in getting to learn the product. The product itself is very flexible and offer a lot of possibilities to custom it so that it fits our needs. However, it requires some time and energy to learn how to administrate it properly, especially when you are a small team (like ours)

Pros

This product is very flexible and offer a lot of opportunities to custome it if you have the skills and time for it

Cons

There is a steep learning curve. In addition, it is sometime necessary to re-adjust some settings after an product update release, which might be frustrating

Fluxx Review by New Grant Making Organization

Reviewed 6 years ago

We started an ambitious re-granting program to provide access to funds for local organizations throughout the state. Through this program, smaller organizations can apply for grants up to $50,000. We knew how we wanted the re-granting program to work, but we were extremely green when it came to applicable software and data management. I was brought on as the Grant Program Manager after the decision...

Pros

- Support from Fluxx team ----They are very responsive when submitting support tickets. A member of Fluxx support team usually responds within the hour. - Easy to make changes to forms, workflow and landing page - adaptability of software and converting data easily into an excel sheet - Filtering of Cards. We have multiple cycles of grants occurring at all times. I can easily filter which...

A Grants Management System for Learning Organizations

Reviewed 6 years ago

We selected Fluxx after poring over a dozen possibilities and two like-functional contenders, chiefly because we knew our staff would value well-designed, anywhere anytime access (great web and app interfaces); our grantseekers /grantees would appreciate how Fluxx's portal design addresses common frustrations of applying for and managing a grant; and the Fluxx company itself is the brainchild of extremely...

Pros

Fluxx has a great process for working with you to build a grants management system that reflects your grantmaking culture while connecting you to the power of its software and effective practices in the field. The underlying architecture is fast, reliable and secure, and training (from grantseeker to reviewer to program team to hard core admin) is an easy path. They are great listeners, and demonstrate...

Cons

Fluxx is growing fast and on the way to ramping up its support and implementation teams to meet a dramatic increase in demand. Until they catch up, the out-of-the-box training materials and knowledgebase can reflect outdated material. This is further exacerbated by the fact Fluxx often turns on a dime (yay), improving features before full documentation is updated (uh-oh). Luckily, their user community is filling in the gaps as is a new program of quick training webinars.

Vendor response

Hi Suki, Thank you so much for your thoughtful review. We are so happy to hear that Fluxx has exceeded your expectations by simplifying your grantmaking workflow and that you recognize that we truly listen to our client's feedback and thoughts as we continue to improve our product. You will be happy to know that a major area of focus for us in 2016 has been on increasing training, communications, and product documentation. We continue to add to our Knowledge Base where we now have over 250 articles and have expanded our Support and Training teams. Keep an eye out for more product and training resources in the very near future and let us know how else we can better support you as a customer! Best, Pej Azarm, VP of Client Services

Super Flexible Grantmaking System

Reviewed 5 months ago

We have been able to streamline our operations considerably with Fluxx, so that our standard workflow can be operated by one person, and the quality of the generated reports taken to our Board is exceptional. The flexibility is so great that it can be a challenge to know when to stop refining processes! Having got to this stage, however, it means we can concentrate more on higher-level concerns like outcome reporting, equity issues, and community engagement.

Pros

The positive experience started from the beginning: the onboarding process. The onboarding team helped guide us through organising all the exported data from our old system and mapping it into the new structure. I learned that there is no "default" setup - everything was set up from scratch to match our desired workflow and existing data. As we have grown and needed to make changes to our grants programmes,...

Cons

From the beginning I realised "there is no manual". Yes, there is documentation within the help-desk system and this is growing over time, but it tends to be task-based rather than actually describing the interface and what everything does. Support is sketchy at times. There is often better information and help from the rest of the global community than from the Helpdesk; over time, too many of my...

We made the right choice

Reviewed 5 months ago

We made the right choice for our Trust in choosing Fluxx for our grants management. It's reliable, generally easy for grantees and staff to use after little training, and we can count on the data being right. The visibility of applications, grants, and payments though every workflow stage is easy to navigate and brilliant. The generation of outcome emails and letters has been a major timesaver over our previous system. We find the Fluxx staff very supportive, and interested in product suggestions.

Pros

Both grantees and staff find Fluxx easy to use and it is quick to learn. Grantees particularly like that several Trusts in New Zealand use Fluxx so they are familiar with the system and how to use it. Staff like that we can see applications while they are still in draft. When a grantee gets stuck we can see where they are struggling with their application, and help them through it. The system has very few outages and the 'Fluxx community' is a great resource for trouble shooting.

Cons

Some of the non-configurable fields and forms are not overly intuitive for grantees or staff. The log in screen is a good example. The existing users signing in on the left of the screen, and the instructions for new users on the right is a good example. New users often attempt to make up a username and password rather than read the instructions on the right. This layout can not currently be changed. Where multiple select dropdown lists are used the data export is not in a format that enables easy reporting. This makes reporting and impact measurement a little cumbersome.

Great for customization

Reviewed 5 months ago

Overall, I enjoy using Fluxx and have found it easy to use after being trained and having been the administrator for a while. Now that I understand how the system works, it's easy to troubleshoot and customize features to our needs. However, for new users on the grantee and employee side, it can be a bit tricky to figure out. There are certain features that I wish could be improved, like financial reporting, reporting out on impact, and types of data collection.

Pros

As the admin user of Fluxx, I like all the customization features of Fluxx that allows us to create a grant application that perfectly matches what we want to collect. The ability to customize applications and reports as an admin user is great, and I like the independence of using the system without needing technical support from Fluxx. The same goes for troubleshooting issues - the admin panel is overall easy to understand after you have been trained and used it for a bit.

Cons

The reporting features or methods of measuring impact data are not as strong as I would like. In order to learn more about our grants, we have to either do an excel export manually or create an AdHoc report to show data. AdHoc reports are a bit tricky to set up, and still end up in an excel format instead of a summary card on Fluxx. I would like a better way to report on grants, and share reports or impact data with leadership at my organization. Fluxx is also not easy for all to understand if users are not tech-savvy. It might benefit from working through some kinks and being a little more user friendly on the grantee side.

Works but definitely areas for improvement

Reviewed 5 months ago

At our Foundation's basic level, the system enables us to do what we need to do -- store grant data and enact a workflow to award grants and approve payments.

Pros

As an end user, it's easy to make way through the system and see/do what you need to do.

Cons

Reporting is tedious, hard to get the data (or even find the data -- backend name and knowing all the right parameters) that you want. Having so much of the information available it s challenge bc it's overwhelming. Data manipulation/filtering is not easy. A novice user can't easily create a report, so there's a dependency on others to do it for them. Also feel like I need to really learn liquid language to make effective administrative changes. Would be nice to have more end user friendly ways for administrative maintenance.

Vendor response

Hi Cynthia, Thank you for your review! We are so grateful that you trust Fluxx and are part of the Fluxx community. Please note that we are going through an overhaul of the reporting and analytics capabilities this year, I am sure they will meet and even exceed your expectations!

Review of Fluxx

Reviewed 4 months ago

Fluxx has been very helpful in keeping the grantmaking process flowing, and has been particularly useful during this time when we have been working remotely.

Pros

Fluxx is highly customizable, and has the ability to connect to third party platforms through api's. The native workflow in Fluxx helps the grantmaking process move through the grant cycle, keeping people informed and ultimately supporting decision-making and money into the hands of nonprofits in a timely manner.

Cons

Reporting could be improved; it's overly complicated to set up reports. Customer service could also be more responsive -- there are times when a ticket is submitted and follow-up is less than timely.

Moving from a database to an automated workflow data management system

Reviewed 6 years ago

Fluxx has transformed the way we work. It improved access, centralized our data, and streamlined our processes. We automated many of our manual processes: instead of routing paper files among staff we use dashboards to inform staff of pending work. Now staff members can work from anywhere there is access to the Internet and they are able to see pending information as well as real time updates. This implementation required data migration, testing, validation, change management, workflow creation, consensus building, communication, and training. A tremendous amount of work went into implementing Fluxx but so far it has proven to be a good decision.

Pros

Remote access, centralized information, automated workflow, real time updates, and budget planning.

Cons

The two areas we like least are: reporting and their current tech support model. Reporting: robust reporting is not part of the core functionality and this is because dashboards were meant to inform clients of this information. However, reporting is still part of many foundation's processes so they have facilitated reporting through secondary databases. So the functionality is available but it isn't...

From CyberGrants to Fluxx

Reviewed 6 years ago

Our foundation migrated our grant data to Fluxx last year. It was a really good decision for us since Fluxx provides real time data and we were forced to clean up those projects that needed it.

Pros

I love the fact that Fluxx always works... we did have a bug this year but other than that, most of our employees really enjoy using it. It has been very beneficial to us in having the Project Leads take responsibility for their projects.

Cons

Streamlines Operations and Supports Bigger-Picture Organizational Goals

Reviewed 6 years ago

Fluxx has streamlined our work while supporting our goals of increased learning and collaboration. We selected the system for its workflow- and cloud-based platform, flexibility, third-party integration, and community-focused business model. Thanks to workflows and intuitive searches/design, everyone on staff (not just grants management) works in the system on a regular basis, which has helped "democratize" our grantmaking data and add transparency to our processes.

Pros

-accessible from anywhere (there's a mobile app); real-time updates -robust grantee portal; grantees can submit edits on their proposals/reports as many times as needed -non-grants (such as PRIs, contracts, and projects) can also be incorporated into the system, so that everything is in one place -workflows, forms, and templates are SUPER easy to customize and tweak -with third-party integration we can connect the system to any other datasets or platforms for other needs

Cons

Some of the more transactional elements of Fluxx are less intuitive (such as understanding the names of fields, or setting up funding sources). This could just be a training issue, but the company is still a start-up so their training materials/opportunities are somewhat limited. (That said, there is a Fluxx Community portal where users exchange tips and best practices, so a lot of materials can be found there from other users).

I love Fluxx

Reviewed 6 years ago

I love Fluxx. It's elegant, powerful, and intuitive. The people (that work there) are really great too--nice, enthusiastic, and committed (and smart).

Pros

I love how the cards work, and the customizable dashboards. The way the whole things is set up is really unique and functional (and beautiful). I do a lot of my "reporting" now just by filtering a card. The website-esque reviewer portal is great too.

Cons

Because it's so customizable, it is a lot to learn (if you want to make back-end changes after you launch your version of Fluxx). A less customizable product would probably be simpler to make changes to, but it would also be more limited. So this is less of a con, and more of a reality that you should consider when making your choice.

All-in-one grantmaking solution

Pros

Before Fluxx we had a different system for each program application, it was very inefficient and difficult to manage. Fluxx has given us means to streamline and improve our application intake process. The software is highly customizable and we have been able to optimize application intake, reviews, and internal and external reporting.

Very customizable product

Pros

I love the customization - it is easy to make changes to forms and processes. It is also fairly intuitive for non-tech staff and grantees to use.

Cons

You do need someone on staff that is familiar with the product to be able to really utilize it, especially when it comes to reporting.

Great grants management software

Reviewed 6 years ago

Fluxx is very well received at our office. It's easy to use, hence the transition was smooth and people got used to it quite quickly. People appreciate the fact that Fluxx allows them to easily manage their daily work and track progresses of an application or grant. We still need to learn how to better work with the system for data reporting and data analysis, but so far it helps us greatly in managing our grants.

Pros

Everyone at our office loves the interface and how Fluxx allows you to personalize your screen according to your needs. It's very easy to (re)configure the system, for a relative young organisation which is still (re)adjusting its processes, the flexibility is highly important. We enjoying the (growing) user community and benefit a lot from the community-driven feature developments.

Cons

Some features still have minor glitches. This said, there are work-arounds and Fluxx is usually quick in addressing these. Reporting is already quite useful the features allowing for complex reporting with drill-down possibilities could be improved. We have demand for higher standard of security and further segregation of permissions.

Fluxx - Good and getting better

Reviewed 6 years ago

My company have been using Fluxx for several years as our main grant management system. I am relatively new to the system having only used it for 6 months, but it is intuitive and user friendly and within a few short months I was able to use the system as well as those that had been using it for much longer.

Pros

The support offered by Fluxx is second to none. Whether it is a quick user query or a request for new forms to be built, requests are always dealt with swiftly. There is also a huge database of self help documents which give you detailed breakdowns of how to use all elements of the system. Both of these coupled with the Fluxx community which allows you to ask questions and have discussions with not only Fluxx administrators, but other Fluxx users, means you are never far away from an answer to any question. The system is constantly being updated with new additions added all the time. These additions are often based on user feedback so if there is something that you would like to see added don't be afraid to ask.
