WizeHive Feature Reviews

Scholarship Applications Made Easy

2020-02-18

Previously, we used Zengine for contact management and Select for our scholarship application process.

Pros

We use Zengine as a contact management database, an award tracking database, and most recently, as a scholarship application system.

Cons

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. This feature works well with the bulk email feature, but it would be helpful to also have delivery reports for the auto-email feature.

Wonderful company with lots of flexibility for an astounding number of solutions!

Working with Wizehive has greatly increased efficiency and helped us to organize and analyse data to make more informed decisions.

Pros

I like the flexibility that it gives me for process management.

Cons

For some of the needs we have had they have had to design custom plugins, BUT this has because a PRO because of the level of service.

Simple and Clean

2019-11-14

We've had much success with WizeHive Select and are excited about the functionality and feature gains for our Applicants, Reviewers, and Administrators using WizeHive Zengine.

Pros

For example: because we know that mail from the WizeHive Platform could land in spam filters, we add language to the interface at the HomePage instructing Applicants to Whitelist or add to their Contacts the Zengine mailer.

Cons

A change was made with WizeHive Zengine giving Applicants and Reviewers more control over changing their password.

Wizehive supporting Irish Social Innovation

2018-08-17

Wizehive has allowed us to run multiple application processes right through to Grantee management. The support and training was top class.

Pros

The software is very user friendly and logical. The training and supports received from Wizehive (Taylor) were top class.

Cons

Being able to automatically link emails to applications or contacts would be a significant advantage.

WizeHive - Excellent Grant Management Software

2020-06-24

Pros

WizeHive is incredibly useful for program management, thanks to its integrated portal editor/publisher, as well as the highly editable data display.

Cons

However, this can be partially chalked up to an ongoing effort to further improve the back-end interface on Zengine's behalf, so I cannot be too harsh here.

Best decision ever

2020-12-08

We are using WizeHive for grant management. We are a small foundation with one part-time employee.

Pros

Zengine streamlined this process and gave us immediate results as each Board member completed their reviews.

Cons

We have found Zengine to be comprehensive and able to meet all of our needs.

Excellent Value for the Money

2020-10-07

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.

Pros

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.

Powerful Database with Unlimited Functionality and Incredible Support

2020-11-19

The WizeHive Team is thoughtful, intentional, and focused on excellence in their product and their customer relationships. I know several team members by name and consistently receive personalized, immediate, and knowledgeable support. From the beginning, WizeHive provides a customized experience for every client, and the support and personal touch do not end after the contract is signed. Our team is excited about all of the time and systems we have saved by switching to WizeHive.

Pros

WizeHive replaced our applicant tracking system, time tracking software, onboarding app, CRM, survey administration app, contact management app, mail merge app, and countless spreadsheets, docs, and graphs stored in Drive and Dropbox.

Cons

However, the Implementation Team works closely with every client to plan the implementation that aligns with your goals for not only usage but also management. My only complaint, which the Support Team has graciously heard and recorded, is that whitelisted/vanity email addresses and system addresses are not available.

A flexible, adaptable tool that does not require much training for the user.

2017-08-23

It saved me from using 5 different spreadsheets and Google docs to manage 15 different scholarships, a retention spreadsheet and individual e-mails to promote scholarships and collect data. I do not think it is as expensive and difficult to use as Salesforce or other products.

Pros

We rolled in a donor database, multiple scholarships, one application, a retention component and a selection process into one without having to pay for each feature.

Cons

The online help function is not very good.

Rapidly Customizable & Scalable Solution with Endless Possibilities

2020-02-08

Pros

Correct and modify configurations with clients and end-users in real-time. 3. Designed to empower system owners and administrators to meet the demands of their clients and super users. 4.

Cons

(Review Portals only recently received this capability) - Workspaces (Databases), are unable to connect to each other to share data and improve reporting capabilities - Built-in Reporting Functionality, while extremely helpful, has limitations that cause it to be very bulky, restricted, and can make it difficult to use - Features and configurations can often be buried deep within menus and take time to navigate to - Unable to bulk upload or download attachments to or from records - Unable to send attachments by Bulk Email - Review Portal, user-directed configurations limited What is extremely important for the reader to understand from my items listed above is that when you have a system that is capable of achieving almost all of your business needs and opens the door to a million possibilities, it can become incredibly frustrating when small or specific aspects of the system are not capable of being configured or scaled.

Fairly versatile form builder, with other types of functionality.

2018-07-18

Pros

We were able to give our customers access to data and collect data from them without a per-user charge.

Cons

The product is relatively new, so features are still being added. Some things you might assume were intuitive aren't (yet)

Success in Managing International Scholarships with WizeHive

My experience has been quick, professional and efficient from the sales process to the set up!

2017-08-10

It has allowed us to create an online database to track our scholars as well as our donors.

Pros

The flexible platform and the supportive technology support make the process painless to set up the system to perform exactly how we want it to.

Cons

It is difficult to find a negative aspect to this software. It would be nice to have more customization's available on the front end to make the application or platform look exactly as we would like it to look to our consumer.

Trusted grant management software

2018-10-15

If you are needing to collect and save a lot of data from grant applicants and reviewers, this is a great system to use.

Pros

Also helpful with creating registration forms for events.

Cons

Needs more help options and tutorials to make the user experience much easier. Still some bugs that need to be fixed (including some issues with a few of the filters in application forms).

This software has allowed us to transform the way we do scholarships.

2017-08-10

The software has enabled us to streamline our process in many ways, allowing us to focus our time betters serving our students, volunteers, and donors.

Pros

Not only have we been able to add more scholarships, but we have been able to improve upon the way we administer them. The process has been simplified for our staff, our reviewers, our recommenders and our applicants.

Cons

We have new scholarships every year and making changes seems to be a very complex process as those changes need to be made in numerous locations.

Response from WizeHive


Thanks for the review and feedback on passwords. We are proud to offer Google Single Sign-On for users. It helps alleviate the password retrieval process for administrators, as well as streamlines the the application process. Here's a blog post on it, and we are happy to discuss offline getting you set-up with it. Cheers! http://blog.wizehive.com/2015/10/05/google-single-sign-on/

WizeHive has been a phenomenal partner - excellent product and customer service!

2017-11-03

Easy to track scholarship winners and process scholarship payments! Easy for scholarship selection committees to access applications from their homes - no more running to the Foundation's office to pick up paper applications and distribute them to their committee members.

Pros

We needed a customized scholarship platform that could allow us to continue administering all of our scholarships and provide an easy way to track scholarship winners and process scholarship payments. WizeHive's Zengine product was the perfect solution to our scholarship program's needs!

Cons

The WizeHive team listened to my comments and has come up with solutions to make the process even better this year!

Makes my board of directors happy

2021-05-25

With board members able to access the applications online, they can complete their reviews in a fraction of the time.

Pros

With each grant cycle our board can go online and have access to all our grant applications instantly...no more cutting down trees to make the paper to submit the application, copy every application for every board member...no more time spent distributing the applications.

Cons

The integration with our existing processes was straightforward and a great improvement.

Internship Application Process Made So Much Easier

2016-09-18

We have used WizeHive for our summer internship application process and have been very, very happy with it -- it's made it so much easier for us to manage the applications we receive and to assemble data. In particular, the review functionality has streamlined our process and avoided wasteful copying.

Pros

Overall, the whole system works really well, and the reporting function is terrific.

Cons

The e-mails to references seem to get caught in SPAM filters fairly often, which creates some administrative burden to follow up with those persons. And since we use the system only once a year, it is a bit pricey.

Hi Ilene: Thank you for your business as well as your review! If you continue to have the SPAM problem please contact us directly We send all of our emails out through a 3rd party service called that processes over 20 billion emails a month with a 99%+ deliverability guarantee so we should look into your configuration as this should not be an issue.

Implementing zengine from select

2019-07-16

There are technical areas of improvement but overall the customer support quality has been excellent. Customer support crew as well as account managers are responsive, helpful, patient and thoughtful. That is one of the best experience of being a wizehive customer so far.

Pros

The former prevents us from downloading millions of excel spreadsheet to do data filtering to understand who is coming through our application - and the latter is a much better user experience for evaluator volunteers that we recruit every year.

Cons

I hope there is more HTML/design element we can add on the platform - whether it is form creation, email templates, evaluator form... we use Form Assembly in many parts of our work and it has more design capacity (color, fonts, logo, insert graphics, etc).

User-friendly software

2019-08-30

Our experience with implementation specialist was very positive - he was very clear in his explanations about the different design options we had at each step, and careful to address each piece of feedback and each question we had, as he helped us to customize the software to fit our grant application and administration needs.

Pros

Creating a form is easy, as is organizing and exporting the data.

Cons

We've not yet come to a satisfactory solution for managing grant-related correspondence. The system logs all email that goes out in an ongoing list, but we'd like to be able to organize this by recipient.
