The longer I use @Ease, the more I like it - I'll need to run a new kind of report and find the parameters there already. The basic data entry is very easy to do and the accounting data is easy to set up - the System Maintenance options are sensible and easy to set up.

Pros

@Ease is a very comprehensive software for charities, covering almost every eventuality from type of data that needs to captured, to reporting and data extraction.

Cons

E-receipts are tricky when errors need to be corrected.

Time is always an issue for any organization especially if you have a smaller number of staff taking care of multiple tasks. I find the EASE program easy to learn and the emailing of receipts efficient & time saving. Our rep is wonderful - always responding quickly with solutions to questions that can be unique to our charity.

Pros

I value the excellent customer service ... always a quick response to any questions or concerns I have. I also enjoy being able to email receipts vs printing & mailing - it saves time and money. We primarily use EASE for receipting and contacting donors, there is much more that an organization could access.

Cons

The software is great ... some of the reporting can be a bit confusing until you get the hang of it but it's often due to a lack of knowledge & experience on my part.

I have been using this software since 2005. When doing mass mail outs Q Express works well with mail merge. Easy to get new donors into the system with Import utility. Customer support is always there to help us.

Pros

This software is very user friendly. Pledge management, Import, Q express & Reports features are excellent. Great support & training from support team.

Cons

Raise Funds with Ease & Donate Now can be improved.

@EASE has made tracking specific groups very easy. It has also given us a easy and well informed list of all of our contacts, contributions, and helped immensely with charitable receipting and with our fundraising project.

Pros

What I like the most about the software is that it is easy to use and provides you with all of the options that you would ever be looking for when running reports of looking up specific information.

Cons

There is nothing I could state at this time about what I like the least about this software.

Pros

it has a lot of information at hand. Once you know how to use it, it is very useful. The reports are very helpful. The support is GREAT!

Cons

would like to be able to access more data/information from the reports - it would be nice to be able to drill down in some of them (similar to simply accounting). It takes awhile to understand and use.

Thank you for your review. Learning how software of any kind works does take time. I have lots of experience in this area having had to learn numerous languages and applications. Regarding the drill down, unfortunately our reports are just that print ready, so different applications do work differently.
There are several ways to examine those who have donated to a campaign or to review a donor's gifts. Give us some feedback and we may be able to add a new report with more of the information you are looking for.

Training is important for any organization wanting to use the full range of features @EASE offers. Tutorials are provided through the software well as on-line webinars to support learning. Clients can request special one on one sessions for specific areas. We look forward to continuing to build ease of use and functionality for this charity.

Even though I still struggle on occasion I don't know what I'd do without the support contract.
We have been with @Ease for over 7 years and its truly a program worth learning. I'm sure if we used it to full capacity the benefits would be even greater!

Pros

It is the backup for everything we do; fund development, events, volunteers, etc.

Cons

If I've made a mistake and have already printed the receipt it is difficult to fix the error.

I have used @Ease software for the past 10 years. They are a good company to work with and have always helped us out when we've had any questions. They are willing to work with their customers, the end users, to make sure the program is helpful and does what they need it to do. There have specifically designed the program based on how we wanted to use it for our fundraising and this is excellent for our organization.

Like many a fundraiser, when I was hired I got very little orientation/training. I saw the tutorials etc but had little time to go through them and less time to attend training in Edmonton. There were some internal IT issues as well, so ease of use score is certainly partly on our side to blame. The phone support I receive is outstanding and provided very quickly so that's the best part of my user experience.

Pros

the support

Cons

when i make a mistake i find it difficult to correct

Thank you for your review. Sorry you gave us such a low ease of use score, where in most cases @EASE receives 4 of 5 out of 5. Training is important when managing such an important asset. Thank you for your comments on our service. We love our work and the ability we have to help our clients.
Hopefully your management will provide you with time and funds to attend some courses. We offer on-line one-on-one training as an option to travel. Chat soon?

As an Executive Director of a small foundation, I know it is important for me to have access to information as I need it. @Ease has been a great software to use that has been very friendly for someone like me who is not afraid to get their hands in!

Pros

The features I want are easy to use and it does not require being a computer programmer to create reports etc.

Cons

I haven't discovered any real cons. The only advice I have is to use it often so your learning keeps on developing. Like anything... if you don't use it, you will lose it.

Advice to Others

Experiment with the reports. There are lots of ways to analyze your data.

Using the @Ease database has really improved the capturing of our information through features such as the receipt notes and qualities. I have access to all our Foundation's information at my finger tips that is so much more specific than what appears in deposit books or the memo line of cheques. Our bookkeeping practices are more sound and error-proof now than before. I also make great use of the mail merge features and report printing for presenting to my Board of Directors.

Pros

Mail Merge
Various Reporting Features
Receipting Information Saved

Cons

I have the occasional frustration getting exactly the information I am looking for on reports - this is likley a training issue that could be solved by re-reading the manual.

Thank you Laurel. We do run seminars on reports and just ran one recently. When in doubt, please call we are always here to help! It does take time to learn all aspects of a program, but reports are important so please just call us or check the Tutorials as we have several reports listed with video instruction.

Camp Health, Hope & Happiness is a registered charity and we have used @EASE for many years with different staff members easily learning & working in the program over that time. It is user friendly and when utilized to full capacity provides endless possibilities. I have learned basic elements of the program and am currently exploring new and interesting aspects - with much more yet to learn as my responsibilities increase. I absolutely recommend @EASE for all of your fundraising needs - you will not be disappointed.
