Pros

Not enoughreviews yet

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

Cons

Not enoughreviews yet

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

Great New CRM Option for Charities

Reviewed a year ago

It has been excellent. It is allowing us to build up our database and is easy to use. Great value for money.

Pros

The integrations are great and save so much admin time. The flexibility and personalisation features are also very useful. Plus the customer service is great, always friendly and helpful.

Cons

Its still fairly new so there are some things it doesn't do but the team are excellent at taking ideas on-board and implementing them.

Beacon takes the Bacon for a nonprofit needs

Reviewed 2 years ago

With Beacon we’ve simplified our entire process for handling donations. Beacon automates everything - from taking donations via an easy to build & integrate 'drag and drop' donation form builder (that's easily associated with the leading payment portals - Stripe, PayPal etc) to acknowledging donors / staff immediately via custom notification templates. The admin heavy task of a Gift Aid submission has been cut dramatically with a built-in Gift Aid tracker. Reports are submitted directly to HMRC from with the Beacon portal without any spreadsheet in sight.

Pros

Chapel & York has been advising and assisting charities for over 20 years. We've had experience using multiple Donation Processing CRMs, and Beacon is by far the easiest CRM to use for any type of staff skill level. The navigation is simple and straight forward and the flexibility of the system can suit as bespoke need.

Cons

The excellent customer support team means that any small con is quickly dealt with. Beacon developers are constantly approving the system and actively set out to listen to users recommendations when rolling out updates and improvements.

Vendor response

Many thanks Adam! Really glad to hear Beacon is working for you and the team.

Beacon CRM

Reviewed 17 days ago

We have the ability now to record a lot more donor information. We can now tag our donors to learn more about their journey and what interests they have. We could not manage without it now, I really don't know how we coped before Beacon it has just made life much easier and accessible.

Pros

We started using Beacon nearly 12 months ago and it has been a complete game changer for our medium sized charity. It can do so much that our previous CRM could never have done. It is very intuative and easy to navigate which is a real positive, it is like one of the team! It works out much cheaper than other CRMs we looked at because we have a small team of users. We can take payments through an embedded form on our website which is then recorded directly into Beacon, something we had to do manually previously saving so much time and resource. Event ticketing is a new feature which is also really useful. The Beacon support is so good, they are always on hand to answer queries and help with any problems.

Cons

Beacon does not have an auto address fill function so our analytics for demographic are not very precise. However if you need something that Beacon does not currently provide then just ask their support team. 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. We have also had some teething problems with duplicate records but I believe this would be a problem for every CRM and after a bit of training and input from the support team this is much improved over time.

Big Change - Beacon Review

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

- 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 - With Beacon being an innovative and agile product we've been able to build the product around what we need so it's fit for purpose, rather than trying to make something that already exists fit to our needs.

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.

Vendor response

Thanks Sarina! I'm glad that Beacon is working for you. Appreciate the feedback on email/calendar integration - these are certainly coming.

We thoroughly recommend Beacon CRM

Reviewed 2 years ago

We found the Beacon team to be very approachable and knowledgeable. They really took the time to fully understand our requirements and delivered a really professional service throughout the development, migration and implementation process. The Beacon CRM allows us to automate so many of our system processes and save considerable staff time while still delivering our reporting requirements. We cannot recommend the Beacon CRM product & team highly enough!

Pros

It's flexibility, ease of customisation and ability to integrate with other products. As a charity but also an infrastructure organisation supporting other charities (as well as offering membership) we had quite complex requirements for a CRM. We'd found that many CRMs couldn't meet all our requirements and we needed to update and streamline our processes to become more efficient in staff time. Because Beacon is so customisable it could do everything that we needed it to do; manage membership; report on our work, outcomes and payments; as well as manage our marketing and communications. The interface is very pleasant to use and navigating the system is very intuitive - even for users not confident with IT.

Cons

We haven't found anything we don't like!

Beacon CRM Review

Reviewed 2 years ago

Excellent - it helped us to create robust impact monitoring systems in a way that required very little input beyond initial set up and can be quickly adapted where required. It's also exceptionally straightforward to explain to staff and volunteers with limited training!

Pros

The software is very intuitive and malleable meaning you can make it fit the requirements you have and the team are there to facilitate that wherever possible - customer service is second to none.

Cons

We're a charity so my biggest disappointment is that we can't get the software free! But you get what you pay for!

Vendor response

Many thanks Callum! Really glad that Beacon is working for you.

Excellent CRM tool

Reviewed a year ago

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

Pros

The flexibility / customisability. We were able to create records and fields entirely to meet our needs as an organisation, and were able to customise existing fields to reflect our language. The User Guide and Help Chat facilities, both of which were used extensively during testing phase, are both excellent.

Cons

Nothing really - it is a very good CRM tool. I was involved in the project during the purchase process and for much of the implementation, so did not get to use it day to day, but I know that the team who are now doing so are looking forward to using it.

Brilliant Charity CRM System

Reviewed 8 months ago

So great to find a CRM system that meets our needs, is simple and easy to use, and has a friendly and accessible customer support team on hand to answer any questions.

Pros

Simple to use, intuitive, easily customisable, integrates with other systems.

Cons

This is a relatively new system so some of the functions are still being developed, but this also allows users to feed into the product design and to highlight features they would like to see.

Highly responsive and customisable CRM with a very supportive customer service team

Reviewed 2 years ago

Excellent - the support and response times have exceeded expectations

Pros

The almost infinite customisation possibilities it offers - most CRMs are fairly rigid and limiting in their functionality - we conducted in-depth research on several market-leading charity CRM's before deciding on Beacon and I'm happy with the choice we made

Cons

There's nothing to dislike - all depends on your data capabilities but the Beacon team have held our hands throughout the whole set-up and migration process. It took a little longer to fully transfer than anticipated, but I think that's par for the course with these things and is worth taking time over to get right

Vendor response

Thanks a lot Tracey! I'm really glad that you're taking full advantage of the customisation abilities.

Excellent Service

Reviewed a year ago

First rate - a really collaborative approach that has allowed us the functionality we need and the time saving value that we required. From start to finish the team have been on hand to advice about the obvious and problem solve the more unusual problems. Brilliant Customer Experience.

Pros

The software is intuitive and easy to demonstrate for others and use. We use the system in a slightly different way to other Charities - the Beacon Team has always been on hand to help us with the slightly more modified system that we have developed.

Cons

We use the system in a slightly different way to other Charities - for example we collect members as "organisations" that has at times meant the system has been a little trickier to apply to what we need. But, help has always been on hand.

Beacon is a dream

Reviewed 2 years ago

We use Beacon to manage our UK donations, including Gift Aid processing. I love the way that it integrates with Go Cardless, Stripe and PayPal to make the donation process as easy as possible for the donor. The team were really helpful throughout set up, and remain on hand whenever we need them.

Pros

It's really easy and flexible to use AND our donors can use Apple and Google Pay!

Cons

Honestly, it does everything we need it to do!

Vendor response

Thanks Katherine! Great to hear you're taking full advantage of all of the donation capabilities and options.
