Thoughts on Giveffect

2019-04-18

It is helpful and encouraging knowing that the system might change, but although it is a great tool to track building relationships there are a lot of areas that need improvement to reduce time spent collecting/gathering data for my company.

Pros

We can see a contact's page and be aware of the events they attended, donations, contact information and basically have a 360 degree view of the person.

Cons

These other tools and Giveffect do not sync well and so there is a lot of manual effort put in to market materials well and keep good communication with our contacts.

Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity

2019-04-18

The software has definitely given us a place to put all information. This saves us time and money in the long run.

Pros

We used to use multiple platforms for our volunteer, donor/constituent management and it is nice to have them all in one place.

Cons

Though the software has the ability to onboard, track, and report all organizational constituents, it is not easy to combine the campaigns.

Best switch of software we've ever made!

2015-12-18

As our focus turns to a targeted campaign for individual contributions and moves management plans for specific donors, the notes and task scheduler/reminder is going to prove invaluable.

Kids meals review

2019-03-21

We were not able to access important information before to ensure accuracy, but all of that has changed by switching to Giveffect.

Pros

You can run a report and see it right there on the screen.

Cons

Sometimes there were options in the reporting tables that needed more training.

So glad we changed to Giveffect, I wish we had done it sooner!

2017-03-02

Giveffect gets so much credit for having people there even on Friday night to help people with their chat support questions.

Pros

Very good, friendly customer service, fast response time, forward thinking system, easy for donors to use, complete system includes CRM, campaign pages, email contact system, website and so much more.

Cons

It is more expensive than other softwares we looked at, but probably worth the price.

Giveffect for a Food Bank Development Team

2019-04-29

About a year in to our service with Giveffect, we trust our data much more.

Pros

I love the easy reporting and the ability to create custom advanced queries to pull the information I need.

Cons

My organization struggles with slowness on Giveffect, regardless of which computer we are using. Additionally, there are many functions we'd appreciate more development on. We submit feedback very often, but our suggestions haven't been implemented yet. Hopefully it improves over time!

It does most of the things we need, but not everything we want in a perfect world

2020-01-14

Overall we have been happy with the product and will continue to use it as our main database.

Pros

We like that we can have our donor database, campaigns, volunteer scheduling, and email builder all in one place.

Cons

There are some things we'd like to be able to do with sending personalized emails and signups that we can't fully customize as much as we would like.

Great for Non-profits!

2017-03-02

With Giveffect you can automatically check in and check out our volunteers, again with Salesforce we had to enter that information in manually which was tough because I would not always be on site.

Pros

Easy interface, simple to learn.

Cons

Some features are not available depending on your plan so keep that in mind.

Easy to use

2017-03-23

Before we found Giveffect, we had been using a combination of eTapestry, Volunteer Hub, and Constant Contact. What jumped out at us was the ability to consolidate the donation and volunteer piece in one program.

Giveffect.com Review

2017-03-03

From the get go, Giveffect's customer service has been top notch - they've had an answer for every question we've had and their team is readily available whether it is through their online "Chat with Us" feature, via phone or via email.

Pros

Giveffect has consolidated our process for us and eliminated the need to use multiple platforms.

Cons

I have yet to have a negative thought about Giveffect.

Recommendations to others considering Giveffect

I would encourage you to call those using the software for references and also TRY the demo! We did both of those things and haven't had one regret. Our biggest hangup initially was the migration to a new platform, but their team helped us handle this with ease. It seems to good to be true, but it is so worthwhile.

Great All-in-one product!

2017-02-22

The main reason we chose Giveffect is that it had all the different systems we were interested in all-in-one, we had looked at Raisers Edge, E-Tapestry and Bloomerang for the donor piece as well as Volunteer Hub and SignUp.com for the volunteer platform, but the fact that Giveffect was integrated and the systems could all speak to each other was the main selling point for us.

Pros

The integration of various platforms that work together.

Cons

Nothing

We've used GivEffect since Dec 2015. It is the easiest CRM/fundraising software I've ever used.

2017-05-01

The ability to customize letters, communications, campaigns saves me time.

Pros

There are no tedious forms to fill out to change or add fields, you can do most of it yourself.

Cons

There are a few pieces that are only available in the upper tier, which is a bummer. Also, the number of administrators we can have is limiting. The cost to add what we need is probably as much as moving to the next tier - which is slightly higher than we're prepared to pay right now.

Excellent Comprehensive Software and Easy to Use!

2015-12-21

Even when I hand off the donations that I've inputted into the database to our finance department for our auditors to see: A) what donations I've entered, B) what fund I assigned the donations to - it's so easy for them to put import data into Quickbooks.

Very Disappointed in Customer Service

2019-10-31

Since the membership system in Giveffect isn't as robust as we need, it is not the all-in-one solution we expected.

Pros

This software is easy to use, intuitive, and the knowledge base and on boarding are well done.

Cons

While you're given a 2 week review to make sure your data is correct, it is useless if something like this happens as the database is "live" and will communicate with donors for a glitch like this.

So Helpful!

2017-03-01

This is one of the only companies I know that utilize the live chat feature in such a productive and efficient manner.

Pros

I like the ease of the software. I didn't have any technical training of the software but between the natural ease of it, the online assistance and the video tutorials I feel very confident using this software.

Cons

I don't think what I like least is really the software's fault. Being a smaller affiliate we don't have the highest level or membership. So sometimes the things I wish I could do... I can't because of that.
