Excellent for Most Non-Profits

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: At a prior non-profit, I switched them from Raiser's Edge (desktop) to Bloomerang. I gained a ton of features and saved quite a bit. The conversion was painless. I've only had to contact support a few times and they have always been extremely helpful.
In my current role, I set them up with Bloomerang as their first database.
I have also recommended it on multiple occasions.

Pros:

Bloomerang is intuitive and easy to use. Creating and reporting with custom field has never been easier and really allows you to customize it to your needs rather than using a standard field for something else. The ability to create embedded forms is a lifesaver. The integrated email capabilities save me from having to purchase another solution like Constant Contact. Plus, these interactions are automatically recorded in the donor/prospects data file. The integrated DonorSearch option is convenient, useful and cost-effective.

Cons:

If my organization ran a ton of events, I'm not sure this would be my optimal solution. Currently, there is only one level of access - so I can't let a Board Member in to look around because any accidental changes they make would be permanent. I know that Bloomerang is working on this though.

Just keeps getting better and better!

Comments: Great donor tracking and ability to document all interactions- even emails from an outside program. This is very important!

Pros:

Like the ease of use and ability to customize, although it can be a bear to figure out exactly how you want to use it.

Cons:

Wish we could permanently add in all the different military ranks as titles, they only have a few, and each service has their own way of abbreviating, so it's a chore to not have them included in the dropdown.

Bloomerang (proceed with caution)

3.0 3 years ago

Comments: I think there were a few things in the demo process they could have shared with us, especially about the form.

Pros:

This review comes from someone very new to Bloomerang, but not new to the implementation process of databases. This product is very intuitive and easy to use on the back end. It has some great features and I'm excited to fully implement it for our organization. There team has been great to respond to requests and they offer some excellent webinars and education for fundraisers.

Cons:

This was not said at all in our demo process, and I failed to ask, so I wanted to share the information with those going through the selection process. They only have one donation form and it is not very pleasing to the eye. If you want to make any changes to it (font, setup, changing it to monthly only form) you must have experience with HTML code. Something I do not have experience doing. The best practice for monthly giving is to have it's only form, and unfortunately this is something we won't be able to implement because of the HTML coding requirement. Also, their email service is great but not automated in any way. So if you're planning to have a new donor welcome series of emails you must do it manually they do not have any email automation. We're now looking into MailChimp to possibly use for email automation.

Very satisfied customer! I would recommend 100% to any nonprofit!

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: Transitioning to new donor management software is always a bit scary because of how valuable donor information is to any nonprofit, but the customer service/transition team was excellent and communicated incredibly well throughout the whole process. Everything from pricing to the timeline was laid out and explained very well. Overall the process could not have gone any better, now two + years in we are still very happy.

Pros:

This software is very user friendly. I have used three other donor management platforms in my career and all were more complicated than they needed to be concerning donor management and reporting - Bloomerang has been great on these fronts. Training new staff and interns on the software has been super easy as well.

Cons:

There really is not a feature that we do not like or anything that has caused us any real concern in using.

Full featured system

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: We love Bloomerang. I've never been able to say that about other CRM packages we have used. Even our volunteers are able to get in and do meaningful work with this system. It' isn't cheap, but it is a very high quality system.

Pros:

This is the first system we have used that is both easy to learn AND works well with other software packages. They have great partnerships with peer to peer platforms and are continuously improving the software.

Cons:

I'd like it to track deceased contacts a little better. (You can mark them as deceased, but it doesn't note a date, and some other little things like that.) Their mobile app could be more full-featured.
