Pros

Wizehive is an excellent company to work with. They are friendly, professional and very customer focused.
From my sales associate to my customer support manager, this team was amazing to work with. They were responsive to my needs in implementing this online process for my association.
The committee was impressed with how easy it was to view, comment and score applicants. WizeHive worked to ensure the suggestions for modifications were made as we navigated the new system.

Pros

Since I first Submittable after being recommended to use it by a writer colleague, I have loved it and recommended it to others.
It's not a perfect platform and we've had to work around it. The team is very responsive, however, and seems open to improving their product.
It is intuitive to both readers/reviewers and applicants. We were able to learn how to manage the application and review process in a few calls to the fabulous Gold Level Support folks.

Cons

Emails usually end up in spam folders. You can't duplicate applications or move them to the next year's cycle which is frustrating if you've deferred an applicant.
The only thing that I dislike right now is that I'm not able to pull email delivery reports on auto-emails that are set up based on folder movements.
Also the degree of non-English customization was limited in comparison to our needs and we had to take two of our programs (Spain and Colombia) off Wizehive, which was unfortunate.

Cons

The only glitch I've had was when the "status" column was not working, but after contacting your service representatives, the problem was fixed within 24 hours.
I feel a little "blind" when sending out ACCEPT/DECLINE. Not sure what the solution is, however, and really does not present any real trouble for me.
But these are more feature ideas, nothing that I'd consider negative about the existing product.

WizeHive

WizeHive has proven to be an excellent tool for our University Summer Research Grant Program.

Reviewed 3 years ago

Organization of proposals submitted and reviews posted and save of man hours in contract award.

Pros

With the assistance of cust support, all of our requests have been addressed and implemented thru the WizeHive system.

Cons

Originally when contacting support, the responses were more generic. Once, we had a direct rep to contact, we received responses that related directly to our system.

WizeHive

Hawaii's Watershed Partnerships Program

Reviewed 4 years ago

Wizehive staff extremely helpful and available to answer questions. Platform easy to navigate for both applicants and backend user. A few bugs encountered at the beginning, but were easily fixed by technical staff

Pros

Ability to go through the backend to make changes or fixes to applications. Review portal is aesthetically pleasing and intuitive to use.

Cons

Would like users to be able to login to application portal using same email after submitting application (fix in the works).

Excellent Value for the Money

Reviewed 5 months ago

Data management is actually something I look forward to now that we have Zengine, and even those on our team who use the system less frequently agree. It is a relatively complex application and requires some time to get familiar with the structure, but we've found the time investment to be well worth it. In fact, the effort we've put into setting up the database to fit our needs is saving us time as we increase the number of records and enabling us to improve other workflows outside of the Zengine space. We highly recommend it and in fact have already done so with another grantmaker.

Pros

Zengine has completely transformed our workflow and allowed us to organize applications, grant disbursements, and review processes in a way we never could have managed using Google Docs and email. Those of us who use the system regularly can easily find what we are looking for, and we have confidence that data isn't slipping through the cracks. The dashboard views are helpful for our board, and we are already getting a glimpse of how we can use the database to create robust reports.

Cons

The only thing we miss is the ability to be notified (e.g. by email) if something has been submitted through the portal by an external user. But we've found a satisfactory workaround.
