After learning more about different feature capacity for DP- I’ve become a fan

I wasn’t a believer at first but I keep hearing how other platforms are not very customer friendly and I really need some hand holding when it comes to new features.

Pros

The customer service is so great & they sound like they really care!

Cons

I wish their online form was more user friendly and customizable

Best Customer Service You Will Find

We have used donorperfect for years, but until attending the conference last year, we did not realize the capabilities. We are able to do so much more now, and are constantly learning ways to improve our donor relations

Pros

Donor Perfect gives us everything we need as a medium sized nonprofit. We are easily able to track all gifts, and the integration with QuickBooks is a real timesaver!

Cons

Some of the reports seem a little complicated to run - I think it could be easier

BV

It is very customizable within the records and screens. Events management needs better integration and ease of use. It is time consuming to enter gifts through the EM screen. It is also difficult to export information through EM for the event.

Pros

It is very user friendly. Making changes and running reports is pretty easy. No coding required.

Cons

Sometimes filters are a bit difficult to set up correctly without assistance. The need to export to excel to manipulate it cumbersome it would be nice to have the ability to set up the templates with a certain look we need and sorted appropriately.

An exciting new partnership

Pros

As a new client, there is an adjustment period after converting and while the system is pretty user friendly, it takes time and practice to learn how to use it. The online support, however, is always quick to respond and very helpful when walking you through a process.

Cons

The biggest challenge is the reporting structure. Raiser’s Edge, our former system, had a simpler way to create and pull reports.
