We love Buzz!

Our animals are better organized, we have gotten so much of our time back because we are all working out of the same software. Adoption numbers go up, and the stress goes waaaay down! (Outside from everyday Rescue stress haha!)

PROS

Ease of use.When we got Buzz what immediately stood out was how intuitive it was. I was able to get on and work within it very easily and without frustrations. Having the ability to manage our animals all in one space has been a lifesaver! I no longer have to hop from spreadsheet to spreadsheet and fb message to fb message. It's all in ONE place! The internal tags are my absolute favorite! Sending documents is easily a close second. There are so many features I love, it's worth it to do the Demo and see for yourself!

CONS

My only con is that I didn't find Buzz sooner!

A great move for our rescue

Our adoptions and intakes have increased since using Buzz. We are able to have custom reports made within weeks rather than months(or years) and we have more access to the information we need. Most of our information can be stored in the software so we have far fewer side documents to manage. We love having easy access to our website right in the software, even for folks who know nothing about building or maintaining a website.

PROS

Once we were able to migrate all of our information into Buzz, the software gave us access to more information, reports and we were able to have real time updates on our website. We are able to upload documents directly to dog profiles and being able to send emails directly from the system has allowed for seamless record keeping.

CONS

We could have used more hands on training initially but Buzz has been great at responding to all our questions and requests. Initially, the website was slow to load and update, but that has significantly improved since we started using it. We don't have the option to bring an adoption application back to "submitted" if it has been moved to conditional. Returning dogs to rescue is cumbersome and should have a more clear path. We also do not have stats reports available any longer and these would be huge time savers for the rescue.

Reason for choosing Buzz to the Rescues

We had been planning to redesign our website and liked that Buzz to the Rescues basically built a site for us. Now we have total control over our website through Buzz to the Rescues and it has made updating information very simple, not to mention, all in one location.

Reasons for switching to Buzz to the Rescues

We needed better website integration and more data management capabilities than what our previous software allowed for.

It does EVERYTHING

Buzz to the Rescues is a seriously passionate team with a nonstop dedication to rescues and animals. The platform itself is so good (easy, modern, intuitive, customizable) I wish I could use it for other parts of my life!

PROS

Back when I was searching for rescue management software, I didn't appreciate right away just how different Buzz to the Rescues is. It has ALL tools in one place, from the back-end database to the front-end website, and they all talk to each other seamlessly. They even cover the cost of hosting. It seems more expensive than others at first, but you save so much money and time getting rid of other tools and costs, which ultimately translates to more animals saved. We even tried a totally free option at first and ended up switching to Buzz within months because it is SO MUCH BETTER. Also -- even though we chose Buzz less than a year ago, it's already gotten faster and more customizable. The team behind it cares and never stops trying to make it better.

CONS

I'm excited for some of the additional automations that Buzz to the Rescues has mentioned rolling out in the future like automatically following up with adopters 1 month, 6 months, and 12 months later. I also wish they could pass along even more lessons learned across rescues so we can all do better.

Reason for choosing Buzz to the Rescues

IT'S THE BEST. Seriously, it has all the features we needed, plus ones we didn't even think about. It links the website to the behind-the-scenes database so you can update everything all at once. And I got the sense (and still believe) they really care about people and animals. They're not a tech product -- they are a team focused on setting you up for success.

Reasons for switching to Buzz to the Rescues

Even though Petstablished was free and the onboarding person was very kind and knowledgeable, their platform was ultimately so painful to use. It took too long to figure out how to do something, and it was too hard to customize it for our needs. Ultimately not worth it =/

BUZZ to the Rescue will Save Your Rescue!

From conception to launch the development of our website was an exciting process. The enthusiasm and knowledge from the Buzz team was inspiring and encouraging in covering every detail. Once up and running our work flow is now so organized and effective. Our ongoing relationship demonstrates how committed Buzz is to keeping rescues working efficiently with continued upgrades and new bells and whistles. It just keeps getting better.

PROS

The overall ease of use and powerful built in software is what every rescue needs to streamline administrative tasks to allow us to focus on the animals in our care and finding them homes. Every aspect of running a rescue; from care management, marketing dogs for adoption, fundraising, data management to adoption application and screening is so easy with a Buzz website. It changed our organization for the better after decades of laborious management. And the overall look and design of our site is amazing!

CONS

I have to think hard and long to find anything that we don't like about our Buzz software. Mostly because if there is something and it is clearly explained to Buzz we find a solution or work around! We find this collaborative relationship priceless.

Reason for choosing Buzz to the Rescues

Buzz provided the best overall look and user friendly product. The training to get up and running took no time at all and was so easy. The biggest reason was the incredibly professional and personal service provided by the Buzz team. They are equally passionate about saving lives by providing us with the most effective way to do so.

Reasons for switching to Buzz to the Rescues

After decades of working with traditional and outdated html website we had to keep separate data bases and were constantly piecing information and processes together to operate. Our administration and operational management was time consuming. Time is precious to most rescues. With the Buzz incredible software our eyes were opened to how technology can streamline everything! The switch to Buzz was one of the best decisions ever. It was life changing and helped us save more lives.
