Pros

I did a demo with all of the top auction software on the market and Handbid was by far the best interface (easy to look at) and well worth the investment.
Everyone I've worked with at Handbid has been very helpful and friendly. The bidders in our auction appreciated the service Handbid offers and the ease of easing the website and mobile app.
Guests had fun bidding, enjoyed the interface, and appreciated that they could move around and keep tabs on their items. We will definitely be using Handbid for our future events.

Pros

The team was very helpful in selecting the product that best fit our needs, and assisting us leading up to the event, during the event and follow up.
GiveSmart is great for our needs, and we are happy with the final product that it provides our fundraising efforts.
The second best feature are the sponsor ads. We like how they are not only on the homepage but integrated through the software.

Cons

We were slightly hesitant to move our auction activity to a mobile app, worried that our guests might have issues learning the new platform. We were completely wrong.
I think overall the software is a bit confusing and not very easy to use, especially for customers. It carries out its purpose, it's just a bit confusing.
Our only disappointment is having to wait until next year's Handbid auction.

Cons

They are usually timely with responses. The only difficult time was when we were sent the wrong cc swipers for an event.
Their onsite staff can be hit or miss sometimes. If you talk to your manager about having experienced staff, they will accommodate.
I can't think of something right off-hand that I dislike about the software.
