Pros

The program is strong, the ability that you can use from the cloud for me is the best, I can work in the cloud from my office or from my client office, that save time to me, and money to my client.

NI

Nivaldo I.

Ease of use, great dashboards, powerful technology, easy to integrate, and easy access to data.

Acumatica has a built in CRM that helps to integrate the sales and operations process to finance. It's really helpful to have the financials easily available for each sales opportunity.

Pros

The integrated donation forms (using Stripe and GoCardless) and sign-up forms are excellent. I like how Beacon is always trying to improve their product and listen to customers like us.

PT

Paul T.

We like that the platform was built specifically for non-profits and with smaller teams in mind. Beacon is customisable and is super easy to build and great for a team with limited resources.

SH

Sarina H.

Excellent care and customer service, as well as a very good piece of software.

LB

Lizzie B.

Cons

Sometimes it will produce a MoveNext error. Also, I have lost the written descriptions that I had written in a particular time slot because of data corruption.

KW

Kayla W.

As an admin, limiting pages for users and restricting access is a pain. Need to go through each tab and change the access rights.

AR

The worst part of that is how the outgoing emails use the system accounts. Outside contacts end up saving these email addresses instead of the "real" user email.

Cons

With the product being so new there have been some teething problems and barriers where critical functionalities are not yet built, such as integration to gmail and calendar.

SH

Sarina H.

This particular problem will be short lived as Beacon are now working on an automated system for inputting addresses so this should be up and running very soon.

JE

Jane E.

Genuinely can't think of anything that I dislike about the platform.
