Beacon CRM

5 vor 5 Monaten

Kommentare: We have the ability now to record a lot more donor information. We can now tag our donors to learn more about their journey and what interests they have. We could not manage without it now, I really don't know how we coped before Beacon it has just made life much easier and accessible.

Vorteile:

We started using Beacon nearly 12 months ago and it has been a complete game changer for our medium sized charity. It can do so much that our previous CRM could never have done. It is very intuative and easy to navigate which is a real positive, it is like one of the team! It works out much cheaper than other CRMs we looked at because we have a small team of users. We can take payments through an embedded form on our website which is then recorded directly into Beacon, something we had to do manually previously saving so much time and resource. Event ticketing is a new feature which is also really useful. The Beacon support is so good, they are always on hand to answer queries and help with any problems.

Nachteile:

Beacon does not have an auto address fill function so our analytics for demographic are not very precise. However if you need something that Beacon does not currently provide then just ask their support team. This particular problem will be short lived as Beacon are now working on an automated system for inputting addresses so this should be up and running very soon. We have also had some teething problems with duplicate records but I believe this would be a problem for every CRM and after a bit of training and input from the support team this is much improved over time.

Beacon takes the Bacon for a nonprofit needs

4 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: With Beacon we’ve simplified our entire process for handling donations. Beacon automates everything - from taking donations via an easy to build & integrate 'drag and drop' donation form builder (that's easily associated with the leading payment portals - Stripe, PayPal etc) to acknowledging donors / staff immediately via custom notification templates. The admin heavy task of a Gift Aid submission has been cut dramatically with a built-in Gift Aid tracker. Reports are submitted directly to HMRC from with the Beacon portal without any spreadsheet in sight.

Vorteile:

Chapel & York has been advising and assisting charities for over 20 years. We've had experience using multiple Donation Processing CRMs, and Beacon is by far the easiest CRM to use for any type of staff skill level. The navigation is simple and straight forward and the flexibility of the system can suit as bespoke need.

Nachteile:

The excellent customer support team means that any small con is quickly dealt with. Beacon developers are constantly approving the system and actively set out to listen to users recommendations when rolling out updates and improvements.

Driving our charity forwrad

5 letzten Monat Neu

Kommentare: It's truly helping us drive our membership growth, improve our volunteer management and fundraising activities. The free read only licences are also improving transparency and reporting whilst reducing the time we spend writing and analysing reports

Vorteile:

It's helping us drive our charity forward at pace, by being simple to use with great back up we spending our time managing things that matter not our software. Also the team at Beacon have a great understanding of our sector, and continually look to add value. Genuinely a business that sees opportunities not problems.

Nachteile:

None - The few we highlight get solved quickly

Big Change - Beacon Review

4 vor 2 Jahren

Vorteile:

- We like that the platform was built specifically for non-profits and with smaller teams in mind - Beacon is customisable and is super easy to build and great for a team with limited resources - With Beacon being an innovative and agile product we've been able to build the product around what we need so it's fit for purpose, rather than trying to make something that already exists fit to our needs.

Nachteile:

- With the product being so new there have been some teething problems and barriers where critical functionalities are not yet built, such as integration to gmail and calendar.

Antwort von Beacon

vor 2 Jahren

Thanks Sarina! I'm glad that Beacon is working for you. Appreciate the feedback on email/calendar integration - these are certainly coming.

Thanks Beacon!

5 letzten Monat Neu

Kommentare: One of the best things is that you are always talking with people who really understand the system and seem to genuinely love their product! Beacon are a pleasure to work with and we would definitely recommend them.

Vorteile:

We are a small charity (ten part time staff) and started using Beacon 6 months ago. It's been a really good experience! We don't have a lot of inhouse IT support and were a bit nervous about moving to a new system. The staff at Beacon were really helpful. They took the time to understand what we needed and helped us to make decisions about what would work best for us. The set up process took a few weeks and went really smoothly. The database is easy to use and the webchat support responds in a couple of minutes if you need help. It does everything we need it to do and has saved us a lot of data entry time by integrating with JustGiving and our website. They are also frequently adding new functions, so even if it doesn't do quite what you want now it may do soon.

Nachteile:

No major cons for us so far. It is easy for users to batch update and change large amounts of data so it's important that users are careful with these features!

Highly recommended, personal service

4 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: This is an excellent product from a fantastic company with unparalleled user experience.

Vorteile:

The software is extremely user-friendly; my colleagues found it very easy to take over and populate. It's very easy to edit, giving a fantastic degree of flexibility (something we need due to the nature of our beneficiaries). However, the absolute best thing so far has been the fantastic and personal customer service.

Nachteile:

It would be great if it had a ticketing function.

Beacon CRM Review

5 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Excellent - it helped us to create robust impact monitoring systems in a way that required very little input beyond initial set up and can be quickly adapted where required. It's also exceptionally straightforward to explain to staff and volunteers with limited training!

Vorteile:

The software is very intuitive and malleable meaning you can make it fit the requirements you have and the team are there to facilitate that wherever possible - customer service is second to none.

Nachteile:

We're a charity so my biggest disappointment is that we can't get the software free! But you get what you pay for!

Refreshing new approach to charity crm / donation software

5 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: From the first call Beacon are different. No pressure sales people, not complex requirements interviews, just good software with human support by people who know the product and understand the sector. Having used the market leading platforms in the past, this is a fraction of the cost and a far better product,

Vorteile:

This is a ground up re think of software for the third sector. Gone are the laborious and expensive setups, gone are the complex endless menus and table of data and settings. Beacon provides clean, simple and highly customisable functionality across a range of functions from CRM to donation management all seamlessly integrated. Brilliantly simple. Certainly the stand out platform in the third sector.

Nachteile:

For us this platform is more geared towards online donations, donor management and reporting rather than a CRM as such, it has the functionality integrated in, but there are better pure CRMs out there if you just need that function, which if you are in the third sector, it’s unlikely you just need that.

A great product for Membership Organisations

5 vor 9 Monaten

Kommentare: We have limited staff and Beacon helps us use them in the most productive manner.

Vorteile:

The product is easy to use and is very powerful in analysing any aspect of your customers data. It has forms that you can integrate into your website so that new members can join and are set up as paying members with no staff involvement. The gift aid integration is seamless and saves hours every month. There are integrations with popular payments, mailing and accounting platforms. New fields can be created on the fly and integrated into screens very easily. The integration with Excel both for exports and imports is very good. Help always seems to be available, usually in less than 10 minutes. In summary a winner.

Nachteile:

The integration with existing standing order payments is clunky but can be managed.

Excellent Service

5 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: First rate - a really collaborative approach that has allowed us the functionality we need and the time saving value that we required. From start to finish the team have been on hand to advice about the obvious and problem solve the more unusual problems. Brilliant Customer Experience.

Vorteile:

The software is intuitive and easy to demonstrate for others and use. We use the system in a slightly different way to other Charities - the Beacon Team has always been on hand to help us with the slightly more modified system that we have developed.

Nachteile:

We use the system in a slightly different way to other Charities - for example we collect members as "organisations" that has at times meant the system has been a little trickier to apply to what we need. But, help has always been on hand.

We thoroughly recommend Beacon CRM

5 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: We found the Beacon team to be very approachable and knowledgeable. They really took the time to fully understand our requirements and delivered a really professional service throughout the development, migration and implementation process. The Beacon CRM allows us to automate so many of our system processes and save considerable staff time while still delivering our reporting requirements. We cannot recommend the Beacon CRM product & team highly enough!

Vorteile:

It's flexibility, ease of customisation and ability to integrate with other products. As a charity but also an infrastructure organisation supporting other charities (as well as offering membership) we had quite complex requirements for a CRM. We'd found that many CRMs couldn't meet all our requirements and we needed to update and streamline our processes to become more efficient in staff time. Because Beacon is so customisable it could do everything that we needed it to do; manage membership; report on our work, outcomes and payments; as well as manage our marketing and communications. The interface is very pleasant to use and navigating the system is very intuitive - even for users not confident with IT.

Nachteile:

We haven't found anything we don't like!

Excellent CRM tool

5 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: Excellent care and customer service, as well as a very good piece of software.

Vorteile:

The flexibility / customisability. We were able to create records and fields entirely to meet our needs as an organisation, and were able to customise existing fields to reflect our language. The User Guide and Help Chat facilities, both of which were used extensively during testing phase, are both excellent.

Nachteile:

Nothing really - it is a very good CRM tool. I was involved in the project during the purchase process and for much of the implementation, so did not get to use it day to day, but I know that the team who are now doing so are looking forward to using it.

My life is so much easier!!

5 vor 11 Monaten

Kommentare: As the only fullt time member of staff in the UK I have a lot to contend with and Beacon has made my life so much easier.
Training was slotted in when suited me (even though poor [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] was in Australia so not always the best timing for him).
Ongoing support has been brilliant - and very patient with me.

Vorteile:

There is so much automation on here that is free my time up to concentrate on fundraising. Our CRM is updated in real time rather than wait for me to input manually.

Nachteile:

There isn't anything at all that I can think of

Feature-rich CRM with integrated gift aid and online form management

5 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: Beacon has enabled us to upgrade our antiquated CRM with relative ease, changed over to new billing systems, switched to Beacon forms for checkout and signup process and integrated the whole lot with Xero accounting. Awesome.

Vorteile:

Easy to use, fast, reliable and flexible. AMAZING customer support, not overly complicated to achieve what you want to achieve (I am sure this is hard to get right).

Nachteile:

I would like automated data exports so I can pick them up in 3rd party reporting tools. It's not that the Beacon reports aren't good but we are already using other tools.

Highly responsive and customisable CRM with a very supportive customer service team

5 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Excellent - the support and response times have exceeded expectations

Vorteile:

The almost infinite customisation possibilities it offers - most CRMs are fairly rigid and limiting in their functionality - we conducted in-depth research on several market-leading charity CRM's before deciding on Beacon and I'm happy with the choice we made

Nachteile:

There's nothing to dislike - all depends on your data capabilities but the Beacon team have held our hands throughout the whole set-up and migration process. It took a little longer to fully transfer than anticipated, but I think that's par for the course with these things and is worth taking time over to get right

Perfect solution to a small charities needs

5 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: The hands-on support from CSRs is fantastic, I have full peace of mind that our data is secure and if I do have any issues I can contact Beacon very easily.

Vorteile:

We really enjoy the ease of use approach, every task we carry out is done seamlessly and efficiently. We have a clear view of how many active fundraisers we have and keep track of all communication in one place automatically with the Gmail integration. This service has saved a lot of admin time and also helped us raise more funds through the donation form for our website which captures the information and thanks the donor instantly.

Nachteile:

There isn't anything that we like least about this software.

Our experience with Beacon

4 vor 4 Wochen Neu

Kommentare: benefits include automatic gift aid reports for submission to HMRC, logging of donors onto database for donor management, automatic acknowledgement emails. Forms that can be integrated with the website, event management to name a few.

Vorteile:

The software is easy to use. It automatically fulfills a number of functions that would take us so much time to do manually. Most of all the customer service is excellent.

Nachteile:

Can't really comment. Still learning what it can do, so not easy to comment on what it doesn't do.

Great New CRM Option for Charities

Kommentare: It has been excellent. It is allowing us to build up our database and is easy to use. Great value for money.

BeaconCRM is an excellent CRM for non-profits and charities.

5 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: We've been most impressed by Beacon's willingness to explain and support. It's still early days but so-far so-good.

Vorteile:

I love the interface and how the views are so clear. The tools are so user-friendly and well-thought-through. The integrated donation forms (using Stripe and GoCardless) and sign-up forms are excellent. I like how Beacon is always trying to improve their product and listen to customers like us. Support is top-notch.

Nachteile:

Very little to mention... I feel that this product will only improve over time. Some integrations are still under-development. We occasionally get duplicate records, but normally through human error.

Brilliant Charity CRM System

Kommentare: So great to find a CRM system that meets our needs, is simple and easy to use, and has a friendly and accessible customer support team on hand to answer any questions.

Nachteile:

This is a relatively new system so some of the functions are still being developed, but this also allows users to feed into the product design and to highlight features they would like to see.

Nachteile:

I don’t have much to add here but perhaps being able to add ‘title’ (mr/Mrs etc) in to the forms. This may have already been looked at though as it was a while ago I did it.

Beacon for a small charity

5 vor 5 Monaten

Vorteile:

Beacon was easy to implement and to bring in data from our legacy server based CRM. It has been an excellent cloud based alternative as a CRM database for our donor and supporter data, as well as allowing us to offer simpler online donation and purchase options, and simplifying Gift Aid. Helpful, and very quick to respond, customer service. Good pricing options for part time staff.

Nachteile:

No downsides so far, software does all that is needed.
