The best CRM for a small budget...

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: I tell every small non-profit organization to consider DonorTools. For the price, you cannot find a better product, for a small shop on a budget.

Vorteile:

The price. The price cannot be beaten. For a donor management CRM that covers all the bases, and provides you all the necessary functionality to run a small development team, look no further. This has everything you will need.

Nachteile:

The reports that DonorTools can run are standard, but a bit limited for typical donor CRMs. Admittedly, you get what you pay for, but you can still want some Cadillac features, though you're paying for a Ford.

We use DonorTools for Donor Management in a small nonprofit.

5,0 vor 7 Jahren

Vorteile:

Ease of use, and modern interface are DonorTools strong points. I like the way it is so easy to setup the software; seeing income trends in the Dashboard compared to previous years is very helpful. It is really nice to have all our donor information in one place. I love that it syncs with MailChimp and so we have one organizational list of donors. Even though we are a small organization with 3 active workers accessing the information, it is so helpful that all the information is online and accessible to all of us independently and simultaneously from any computer no matter where we are in the world. Exporting lists are easy and very useful. For our small organization, the ability to setup fund pages for many different projects with boiler plate text is invaluable. There is no programming required and yet we have an easily accessible donor giving website with multiple fund pages available for our donors. It is really so simple that almost anyone can manage and maintain the donor management functions of your organization. Most of our donors probably do not often need or use the donor access functions, but it is very nice to be able to have these features without paying extra for the feature.

Nachteile:

Within the reporting functions (which are really quite good for the provide types of reports), there is a significant omission. It would be really helpful to print fund reports showing totals for a specific time period for all the funds. That just isn't possible with the current software. You can print a report on any ONE specific fund, but printing out fund totals for a year on funds is not supported. Either you must export data to spreadsheets and then produce the reports, or you can prepare reports on each fund and manually create summary reports. We have asked for additional fund reporting functionality, but as of yet this is not possible. DonorTools overall is an excellent program, but this one weakness in fund reporting is problematic. Our wish list would also include automated reporting to an email account, but that might be a bit much to hope for at this price point.

Useful, But Room for Improvement

3,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: I have been responsible for all entries on Donortools for 3 years now. I think the database is easy to use, however I do have a few suggestions that I think would make everyone's lives easier:
1) Donortools can not automatically connect to Constant Contact: I have to manually upload each new donor's name into Constant Contact in order for our donors to receive any emails from our organization. It takes forever to export the large donor list, sift through the newest names and then re-upload them on Constant Contact!
2) Work Addresses vs. Home Addresses: We have many individuals that we have both a work address and a home address. When doing an export, however, I can not just export "home" addresses. If I enter both the work and home address in the donor's name, and then happen to enter the work address first, I have to manually correct it once it exports on Excel so that only the home address columns show up. If I write the home address first, but also entered the "Company Name" they work for, that ends up exporting too. If I don't catch it, the Corporate Name will attach to their home address. When I have thousands of donors, this takes hours. Sometimes, I have thought to not enter in the work address altogether under the individual, and instead, enter their individual name under the Corporation-this brings up a whole other set of problems. Lets say my organization has a relationship with approx. 20 employees from the company that is entered in Donortools. At first thought, I would enter in all 20 names under the Company's entry, including their email addresses. However, when doing an export, the Excel spreadsheet becomes HUGE and doesn't separate the individual employer with their email-it is all in the same row. Let's say I find one of the employee's home address but didn't remember that I already entered their email in the corporate entry- Donortools does not automatically connect that person already entered with their separate home entry. When doing an export, I end up getting duplicate names because some people are entered under the Company as well as their personal entry...this requires much time to fix this if we have to do a big mailing, i.e.
3) Donortools does not allow me search by Donation $$ Amount: This could be helpful when determining how many donors have given $0 for a few years.
4)Pledges: Yes, I can enter in a pledge, but Donortools does not remind the donor to make their pledge once it's due. It's hard to remember all pledges.

Vorteile:

Easy to enter names. I like the "relationship" tab. I love I can use the "date Range" when searching for certain gifts. I like how my organization's PayPal account is automatically connected to donortools.

Nachteile:

1-Can't automatically connect to Constant Contact 2-Pledges need to be improved, Donortools should remind the donor to make their pledge, or at the very least, let me/the administrators know. 3-There have been double entries in exports of individuals: if we enter their home address in a separate entry and also their information under a company name...Donortools doesn't automatically connect this person together.

Incredibly simple, cost-effective tool for managing our donors.

4,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: The benefits to me have been making it easier to manage my organizations relationships with its donor base.

Vorteile:

I love the simplicity of Donor Tools. So many donor management packages (or CRM packages in general) are so feature-rich that their complexity makes them problematic, and not cost-effective, for smaller organizations like ours.

Nachteile:

Often a piece of software's greatest strength also informs its weaknesses. In this case, there are a few social integrations I would love to see happen. Also, cleaning up data is a huge task, even with a relatively small database. We have, on occasion, needed to clean up records, merge duplicates, etc. A slightly beefier data scrubbing toolkit would be nice. Finally, handling households, couples, families...these are things that are important to us, and we do it with tagging. That's okay, but it feels like something that should be a central feature to a software package designed to manage information about people.

The program has allowed us to utilize the basic needs for donor documentation.

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: The ability to be able to track donors anywhere with online access.

Vorteile:

Provides the opportunity to view a donors history donations over several years. In addition, the opportunity to classify each type of donation.

Nachteile:

We would like to be able to send out an email notification for receiving a donation. In addition, the ability to print labels directly from the program and not having to export to ACCESS.

DonorTools

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Other than those two small things, I have absolutely loved using DonorTools in my small business and it has truly helped me be organized with all of my information.

Vorteile:

DonorTools is extremely easy to set up and I am able to see the income trends from years prior. I love the fact that you don't have to know how to program in order to be able to develop fund pages. Having the ability to have several users with the ability to limit access is very helpful so that everyone can be on the same page and access the necessary information.

Nachteile:

I wish that we would be able to customize the way emails would come in. I would also be beneficial if there was better usage on a smart device.

3,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: I can make funds with this software for people that really need help outside USA or Canada

Vorteile:

I like the software interface because its very fiendly andeasy to use. You can use the free trial to see if what are you looking for

Nachteile:

You need to be at USA or Canada and also after the first month they ask for a credit card. It would be friendly to let you pay with the donations

Great as Far as It Goes

4,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: For the donation tracking needs of a public library, Donor Tools is an excellent START. The interface is not difficult to use once you've figured out its ins and outs, and it does provide a valuable way to ensure that the same information is recorded and saved about every donor. I also find it useful for tracking whether or not I've sent thank you letters. I find it not at all useful for writing the letters themselves; I do that the old-fashioned way in Word because it actually takes LESS time than wrangling with the templates. What I find truly lacking in Donor Tools is the fact that it doesn't give me any way to record what happens to the donation AFTER we receive it. Does it get spent? What do we spend it on? The progress of donation money through our accounting process is very complicated, and it does frustrate me that Donor Tools doesn't give me any way to track it. This means that I still have a lot of duplication of effort in recording incoming donations. Donor Tools was particularly useful for the big fundraising campaign we initially purchased it for. It is less useful for the day to day small donations.

Vorteile:

It is simple to use (after a little practice), and as a database of donors it does very well.

Nachteile:

Three-fourths of the information I need to record and use has no place in it.

Good service, but needs more

4,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: DonorTools is a great service for the price. Very easy to use. However I would like to see the mass ability to change lots of records at once. The integration of services like stripe and moonclerk. The ability to set up recurring donations in donor tools that will automatically populate without imports or manual entries. The service is great for the money, but I think it could get better with more automation possibilities. Perhaps build a donation capture page much like moonclerk that uses stripe and then it automatically updates records in DT. That would be great, plus it would likely bring in more new users. Thanks for listening.

Vorteile:

Easy to use and cheap.

Nachteile:

I wish it had more automation features. Needs a better donation capture page. Please add the ability to change mass records.

Kommentare: Not having a number to call makes it very difficult. In addition, not being able to easily build reports and pull data in a condensed way is a challenge. Also, when zip codes pull for New Jersey and other states that start with a 0, the first digit (0) is removed from the report which is very frustrating.

Vorteile:

Cheap

Nachteile:

Reports Customer Service Lack of customization

Hi Danielle, Thank you for your review. The 0 in the Zip code definitely should not drop off when you run a report. I wasn't able to reproduce this in any of our reports, can you send me an email about where you saw this? You can email us at support@donortools.com. We would love to get that fixed as soon as possible. Thank you, Donor Tools Support

Sattisfied, although UX could be better

4,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: In our organization we use the tool daily. What I like the most is that I can easily access donors' profiles; I can see history of their donations in a well-organized way. On the other hand, I would appreciate if I could add attachments to donations (e.g. photo of thank-you card) and also the system of smart tags sometimes seems confusing (especially when I need to get to specific group of donors according to multiple criteria). All at all, DonorTools is good tool which needs continuous updates & improvements (as all the other tools of this kind do).

Vorteile:

- donor history - donations summary in dashboard - multiple funds you can use at the same time

Nachteile:

- smart tags system is quite complicated - no option to add any files to donations/donors/profiles

It was nice while it lasted

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: We had the old version for years and it was fine. When they simplified, it was easy to use but not sophisticated enough, there were reports we just couldn't get from it. Customer service was extremely nice, but by email only so very slow - sometimes getting an answer took a week. So we switched to Eleo about 8 months ago, very happy now.

Vorteile:

It met our needs for years before the simplifying.

Nachteile:

Simplifying made it less than we needed, reports weren't enough.

Easy to enter information, very difficult to retrieve in a usable form. Confusing and complicated.

2,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: Very little -- a real time-waster.

Vorteile:

Ability to track donors over multiple years was an advantage. This software could give you a picture of who donated what each year and at what level. It could also be separated in different classes, if used properly. The weakness is in the reports, which were very difficult to manually create in a readable and usable format.

Nachteile:

The reports were impossible -- it took over an hour for each report to re-configure into a usable form. Could not get any volunteers to enter info because it was too complicated. Did not track annual giving information accurately. This program was a nightmare to use and expensive to ignore. Volunteers could not enter, track or use the information.

I have had a very positive experience with Donor Tools over the past few years

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Vorteile:

I do like the easy to use, navigate software while using the system. I also like that you are able to clearly look at donations and can organize by month and year to get a clear picture of growth.

Nachteile:

I dislike the way that one has to go about reaching out for support / technical or otherwise. I wish they perhaps had live chat options.

Kommentare: We have been using Donor Tools for about four years now and it is great! All the features are easy to learn and when you need tech support they are very quick to respond.

Vorteile:

Easy to learn

Nachteile:

It would be nice when you export data you could customize the fields in the excel file because there is a little to much info for the simple reports I do.

Kommentare: This software is very easy to use and accessible via the web. The ability to export data to Excel or a csv file is easy. You can also add as many funds, sources and type of payments that you may need. The ability to archive older data but still access via reports and totals is ideal.

Vorteile:
