As stated in previous comments, the software platform has the ability to offer a variety of services. It is well suited for all organizations and events. With that said, no software is perfect for everyone and the user should take in consideration both functionality and investment. The platform we used lacked some "ease of use" administrative functions and was not ideal for marketing our sponsors.

It is well suited for all peer to peer fundraising events!! It will be a timesaver for all those who work on these types of events. Its also very reasonable for smaller organizations, which can be out-priced by some of the other larger competitors.

Pros

501 Auctions

  • Attendee List Maintenance: The platform provides an easy-to-use attendee list. Modifying the information is a piece of cake.
  • Attendee Check In/Out: Highly recommend the software for their quick and easy access to attendance entries and information.
  • Technical and Customer Support: Our representative was very knowledgeable and was able to assist us rather quickly when prompted by email or telephone call.

  • Does data calculation of key KPIs for you as soon as you pull up the event.
  • Your data is at your fingertips. Want to contact a current walker, all the info you need is right in the dashboard. No having to look the constituent up, pull a report, etc.
  • They have a great online support (chat and email features) as well as great how to videos. Saves me time as well because I can send my users there instead of having to help them troubleshoot.

Cons

501 Auctions

  • Modifying Client Payments: There were too many steps to take when modifying a client payment in the system. Although we could complete the task, one would expect a single step instead of multiple steps from a variety of page views.
  • Adding or Modifying a Single item: You would expect the platform to bring you back to the same item for any further modification or review. Rather, the platform took you to the top of the page was rather annoying especially when you have hundreds of auction items.
  • Knowledge Base: The platform offers a knowledge base if you know where to locate it. Rather than clicking on a link within the header or footer of the software, we were forced to locate some original emails from the developer which contained a link for the knowledge base. There should be no reason for hiding access to information.
  • Sponsor Marketing: Most events if not all of them, are financially successful because of sponsorship revenues. It is extremely important to market these sponsors (or large donors) on the platform. The software does a poor job in emphasizing these sponsors.

  • Better year over year (by walk date) data
  • Scheduled and triggered notifications could allow more flexibility (as well as the text feature)

Return on Investment

501 Auctions

  • All software platforms enhance ROI and save time and money. Not sure if this software was better than others.

  • Very large ROI! Our numbers grew by 17% in online fundraising in year one, and we are well on our way to seeing that increase or more in year two.
