Airtable

Good for replacing administrative spreadsheets, creating resource assignment and calendars, planning activities, creating on the fly data stores, outputting simple mobile data entry forms. Dealing with mobile staff needing to enter simple data quickly or with managers and officers who need to see real-time snapshots of information. When dealing with smaller data sets and not requiring blocks, then for a non-profit it is useful to have the free workspaces where everyone can fully collaborate and update records.Less good for complex financial work you should stick with Excel or your finance system. If you have a very large number of records and need many people to be able to update records then you need to consider the costs (however most off the shelf products you will be looking at to do your specific tasks will probably cost more when you evaluate them).

HeyOrca

HeyOrca is perfect for the social post editing. For example, when I send the content link to my clients, they can easily go in and comment on posts that need editing rather than having to email me changes. Essentially it streamlines client/agency communication. It is perfect for a smaller agency who has less than 20 clients. I think HeyOrca is not for those whose main content is blogs and corresponding social posts. WordPress isn't Integrated, making it inconvenient to manage.

Pros

  • The ease of the relational database capabilities are key for keeping tracking of how our contacts, partners, donors, and event attendees are all related.
  • The map block feature is great for when we're on the road visiting partners.
  • The custom views are extremely helpful for viewing the most important information quickly.
  • As a nonprofit, the reduced prices are also greatly appreciated so we can put more funds towards the youth we serve rather than into infrastructure.
  • Of HUGE importance is the care and feeding I've received from customer support. I ask a question and get a response within 24 hours and the response is personalized and makes sense. The conversation with a single representative is such a relief and makes it so much easier for me to be productive.
  • I suspect that the technology integrations with other apps, using Zapier or otherwise, will become more and more important to us - we're working on getting PayPal payment completions to populate our event attendee lists right now!

  • Provides a one-stop option for multiple client and platform content to live.
  • Great customer service and extremely responsive help center.
  • Easy to use and learn interface.

Cons

  • I can't actually think of any road blocks or insufficiencies yet!
Dana Luco profile photo
  • HeyOrca no longer allows you to tag other companies and people within your Facebook post. I know this is partly Facebook's fault but it is hard to explain the issue to clients
  • Sometimes HeyOrca doesn't notify you if a client comments on the post with changes. This makes it difficult to ensure there is constant communication and the changes can be made ASAP.
  • I really wish HeyOrca could integrate with WordPress. It makes it really complicated to ensure your blog posts go out if approved. I have to check every morning to see if a blog was approved so I can go in and schedule it.

Sometimes, I have to wait a bit longer but I'm on a low priced option so I understand why. Generally, they're able to provide me solutions to my problems as long as I'm not in a rush.

Alternatives Considered

Excel and Microsoft 365 are good for what they do but don't fill the database niche the way that Airtable does. LiveImpact looks amazing but is currently out of our price range and better suited to medium-large nonprofits. Airtable is the perfect place to start our small org and I keep finding new capabilities in it to help us manage our infrastructure as we grow.

Hootsuite is definitely a popular platform and we used to use it but felt as though it wasn't super client friendly. We had a lot of confused clients that found it harder to understand and monitor their social content. I think HeyOrca does a better job with the calendar layout and features.

Return on Investment

  • We are still in the early stages, but AirTable has allowed our small team of five to coordinate almost twice as many rentals of our gallery space for private events, thus providing out nonprofit with increased income that can be reinvested into improvements to our gallery and new programming.

  • HeyOrca helps to retain our customers and ensure that they are happy. The more clients we keep the more our RIO increases.
  • I don't think HeyOrca does a thorough job getting good engagement. Because there are a lot of restrictions for posts or apps that aren't currently integrated it doesn't allow complete optimization for social platforms
  • HeyOrca allows me to manage my own companies social campaigns, which is really convenient as I can track and target our audience, helping to retain and gain new clients
