Luminate CRM and Analytics

It does great with donor cultivation processes and the workflow feature is top-notch for automating processes. Where it does a less than stellar job is getting it to work more specifically for your organization. Often times building that kind of special feature costs a significant time and money investment and it is something that is hard to transfer when it's time to move to a new database.

DonorDock

DonorDock is probably the best nonprofit CRM for small to medium sized nonprofits, when you consider features, use-ability, and value. For most organizations, it’s going to have everything you need to get the job done.For very large organizations ($4 million raised through fundraising annually), or those where money is no object, and they want something 100% custom-built, it is not the best choice.

Pros

Luminate CRM and Analytics

  • Multiple tools on one platform. It saves time and lowers chances of error since we don't have to switch between a lot of platforms. Many less tech savy admins appreciate one login for everything.
  • We use our events calendar for many things, and the tools are fairly specialized for a more modern and easy to browse web calendar (having mobile optimized wrappers make all the difference).
  • Email campaigns can be segmented and more carefully targeted, both through ab testing and their reports.

Cons

Luminate CRM and Analytics

  • In my experience, the Blackbaud team is a nightmare to work with, and customization of Luminate CRM (or basic updates) will cost an arm and a leg.
  • Luminate imperfectly lays over the Salesforce platform, so if you use certain Salesforce functions you can really compromise the integrity of your data.
  • The layout and user experience is pretty subpar. The reporting feature is also not as robust as other databases.

DonorDock

  • Does not include e-commerce functionality
  • Does not include built in auction tools, but they can be integrated

Luminate CRM and Analytics

Luminate CRM and Analytics 1.0
Based on 1 answer
Support for the product is horrible; often support will have you bouncing between Blackbaud support and Salesforce support and it's very rare either are able to find simple solutions. Most of the time the solutions almost always cost money and hiring consultants which, for a smaller organization, means not being able to achieve proper solutions.

Alternatives Considered

Luminate CRM and Analytics

Both MailChimp and Salesforce were sleeker and had a better admin experience (as well as constituent experience on the end) but both programs were more expensive than we could afford when we put all the digital tools we needed together. We ended up valuing LO more because it could do everything in one.

DonorDock

I’ve looked at nearly every other tool on the market, and DonorDock is my favorite right now, especially for smaller nonprofits. It is better because it has focused on making day to day tasks easy. I know a lot of friends dread using their other CRMs, but I actually like using DonorDock.
Choosing a system is a big decision, and you want to make the right one. No software is perfect, but this is the best one I’ve personally seen: DonorDock is not only easier to use, but it also has great features to retain donors better, and it is much more affordable than the other options out there. Would definitely recommend getting a demo and checking it out for yourself.http://www.donordock.com/donordock-demo
