Overall Satisfaction with Kintone

I manage a very small and growing non-profit organization. Kintone is the first system we have used to get organized and, with help from Kintone, I have built it as we have grown. I use it to track grants and donations that we receive and to track the services we provide to our clientele.
  • Kintone is very simple. No extra buttons to navigate around. Everything I have built has a purpose!
  • Kintone is not overly complicated. It is easy to use.
  • Kintone fits the budget of our very small non-profit organization. Unlike databases, we can afford it.
  • I would like it if I could manage files and documents in Kintone in a way that was easier to use. It would be so helpful if the documents app allowed me to move documents around and rename them, for example.
  • I would have really liked a virtual tour of a Kintone system that was already built for a non-profit organization before subscribing. I had to take a leap of faith and make that decision based on talking about how Kintone is (I did really appreciate the trial account).
  • Our budget increased from about $30K to $85K in the last year. We could not handle that budget without a database or data management system like Kintone.
  • Every time we call a client, we have a history of services and notes for them. This means that our relationship is more likely to be better and our communications efficient.
I needed more support in the beginning, while I was building Kintone. The support has been great, but it was just a huge learning curve in the first 3 months, especially since I am not naturally a tech-savvy person.
Caseworthy is a very large extensive database that is excellent. However, Kintone is affordable for our small non-profit (with only one employee). We would be swimming in the complexity of Caseworthy.

Kintone has been a little clunky for tracking incoming donations and matching them with a donor profile when it comes to those complications that arise. For example, several donors donate via a check in the mail, however, the donor profile must have an email address listed. So I have resorted to making up fake email addresses for a few of the donors in order to link them to the donation transaction that I created. Another example is when donors donate with more than one email address. Then I have to create two separate donor profiles.
