Pros

Very solid and dependable, excellent QuickBooks integration with good support when needed. By addressing multiple needs - time tracking, estimating and invoice preparation, much time was saved.

RN

Robert N.

Overall we have enjoyed it, we are about to get our quickbooks integrated, so that will be nice - hope that it works great.

AW

Alicia W.

The software is so user friendly you can figure almost everything out yourself and if not they have a very helpful support team that will help you with your issue.

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

My biggest complaint is that when you make a mistake or key something that needs clarification, a dialog box requiring an action comes up nowhere near where you're currently working on the page.

We've had to create projects for all of these but it then becomes confusing which job number we're referring to.

MD

Madeline D.

Not to mention most of us were project managing out of email. Things were falling through the cracks and it was difficult to track how much time we were actually spending on projects.

PS

Priscilla S.

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.
