Classy.org
Well suited for organizations with large fundraising programs or many recurring donors, especially those who have the staffing to devote to reporting and fundraising data analysis. Variety of payment options is good for mobile-first or younger audiences who may be taking more frequent advantage of payment methods like Venmo and Apple Pay. Most useful if it is used in tandem as an event registration/event hosting platform (Classy Event Registration or Classy Live) as attendee data and fundraising is kept in a single place. Less appropriate for smaller organizations, or folks that will not be doing crowdfunding/peer-to-peer/events. There are other platforms that do standard donation pages well that have fewer bells and whistles but are accordingly cheaper.

Slido is great to use for live meetings, whether in person or via video conference; we mostly use this for Zoom meetings. You can use the different features at different times in your meeting: I love to start our All Hands meetings with a word cloud or a poll of some kind, and as people are joining via zoom it gets people feeling excited and connected even before we've started. It also gives us something fun to talk about while we're waiting for everyone to arrive and for the meeting to start. You can do a poll halfway through to keep people engaged, and then a poll at the end to see how you did, or maybe use the Q&A to see what questions come up without having the awkward zoom silence when you ask if anyone has any questions. I don't think this is helpful in smaller meetings, where people likely feel more comfortable interacting directly and asking questions verbally.

  • Slido integrates well with Microsoft PowerPoint which is very much useful for us.
  • The post poll dashboard reports are very much insightful.
  • Shareable links are created easily with Slido. Also, this saves a lot of time and manual effort for us.

Cons
Classy.org
  • Campaigns lack customization options which can be limiting- while you can add code to make some changes, there is a basic framework that you can't always override.
  • Slow to roll out some donor payment options like Venmo.
  • Not inexpensive price point and on an annual contract, so the software is definitely an investment.

  • More integration options should be provided to maximize its use case
  • More customisation features and templates should be added for the polls and quizzes
  • More pricing plans should be introduced so we can chose the plan that suits us perfectly and is more cost-effective

Usability
Classy.org
VERY easy to use, but lacks flexibility. But very easy to learn and master, even for someone with technical skills. They offer live chat which is a great help for on-demand support. At higher call volumes, you may wait 10 minutes, but I’ve never waited for more than that and the support if 90% of the time very helpful.

Slido has one of the most intuitive Dashboards I've ever seen. It's easy to use and easy to manage. I've extensively used Polls and Quizzes and it works like a charm, every time.

Support Rating
Classy.org
Classy's team was very helpful as we transitioned over, and helped us get everything set up quite easily. The few times we've had issues or questions, their online chat feature has been a quick way to get answers. On Giving Tuesday last year, the site went down, but Classy was quick with communication to its clients and had the problem resolved in about an hour. I know that if we have any problems or questions, the company and its team will be responsive and helpful. That makes a difference to me and our small team. We don't have time to troubleshoot or stay on hold for a long time waiting for support.

The communication I've had directly from Slido was very professional and sets an excellent impression for the tone of the company.

I have not used any other platforms like Classy. Given I came into this organization after Classy was already chosen, I was pleased with how easy it was to learn the platform and how user-friendly the entire thing is. Although I haven't used any other platforms like it, I would highly recommend it.

It's as simple as just Microsoft Word Visual Basic. We used to use that. Just a lot more cumbersome with the program and setup. Can be buggy depending on the browser operating system that you're running it on. Nothing specific for surveys. This was the first one we got that's officially for a survey that I know of. I've been there for about five years.

Return on Investment
Classy.org
  • This has been nothing but positive. We use the basic version so there is no fee associated with it other than a percentage of each transaction. So everything that comes in is added revenue where the only investment is staff time, but there is no monetary investment.

  • Slido has helped us analyze essential data from our CAB meetings, such as the participants' up or down voting in Q&A and the specified poll insights
  • Our teams have been able to collect relevant information from larger groups within our organization
  • We've seen more people interacting with us now we use Slido than before
