Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Qgiv

Qgiv is great for small businesses or large companies that are looking for a user-friendly software to use to process donations, sale items or simply use a tool for peer-to-peer fundraising. The customer is by far the best service I have ever received and the baseline data is easy to export for donor cultivation purposes

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.

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.

Qgiv

  • The integration with Exceed Beyond has been VERY challenging. I think I have pushed both Qgiv and Exceed Beyond to their functional limits. The learning curve for getting integrated and getting up and running was steep - and I am usually a quick study with these things.
  • There are little things, like the fact that at one point I noticed the address field for the donor's state didn't allow for abbreviations, but rather spelled out the entire state name. If this is being directly imported into our database and then later exported into a mailing list, I knew the post office wouldn't be happy. Plus, for a mail merge, who uses the whole state name? It's just weird. The response I got to this complaint was essentially, "thanks, we'll add it to the list of things we'll think about."
  • There's no way to accept payments offline like you can do with Square. Not sure what this functionality would require, but it would sure be helpful when we are in a dead zone.

Qgiv

Qgiv is by far a better product. No hidden fees and the team of developers continue to make updates that are relevant to keeping the software competitive and user-friendly. Also, customer service is a 10 out of 10 when it comes to troubleshooting different software scenarios. Finally, the ability to export and import is a basic and awesome necessity.

Return on Investment

501 Auctions

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

Qgiv

  • For the price, it's a solidly positive ROI for its functionality as a credit card processor. Prior to Qgiv we used MobileCause and I think the impact of the change has been neutral.
  • Even though the integration with Exceed Beyond isn't perfect, it's still an improvement over entering all the data by hand. Saving time is hard to calculate, but I would say it has probably dropped our donation entry time by at least 10%.
