Snowball - Bombards the Bottom Line

2021-05-10

Pros

Snowball tools helped Encuentro take our fundraising activities to the next level - super easy to use and set-up campaigns and I love the text to give feature and online auctions!

Cons

Although we tried to use the 'simple CRM' for our purposes, even entered off line donation information for donors who did not give via Snowball, we could never extract a consolidated donor list and donor email addresses couldn't be changed or updated.

Good Value - Nice Features

2021-05-04

As I learn the software, I continue to find new uses for our organization. I believe this product is versatile and has a lot to offer for the price. Customer service is 5-star - quick responses and very helpful.

Pros

I can easily export data. Having the option of "text-to-give" is a nice feature and is easy to set up.

Cons

The deposit detail provided doesn't always reflect actual transaction activity in the case of issuing refunds.

Already Recommended to People

2021-05-04

I've used other platforms that require six months of prep work before the event because the platforms are so convoluted and complicated.

Pros

Other options are easily over $1,000, charge per "event", place strict limitations on the number of items/bidders, or charge insanely huge processing fees.

Cons

Being able to move the listed items would also be a great feature—we added items as they were collected/donated and then when we wanted to reorder the lineup, we had to delete every single item and re-create them to get them to appear in the order we wanted.

Customer Service for the Win

2021-05-04

Good user interface.

Pros

What I love most about this product is its customer service accessibility. While the product may not have all the bells and whistles that some more expensive lines have, the team is always ready and willing to make modifications so it fits your needs well.

Cons

Some features you find with pricier competitors are not available.
