Easy to work with and website is well laid out. Has a good history and reputation working with various organizations and corporations.

Likes Least

Nothing comes to mind. Maybe a small lack of partners and amount of funding that has been accomplished versus other companies in the industry.

Recommendations

Write a list of needs and wants before beginning to review. Suggest a test phase if possible to access the flow of the application.

I don't think I can list a single benefit.

Pros

It's really hard for me to find a Pro for the Kimbia product. I would have to say that the best thing I've experienced is that Dave is fairly helpful once he responds to our request for assistance. Often times, the response is delayed but once he gets back to us he's helpful.

Cons

I'm sorry to say that there are probably too many Cons to list. As a professional fundraiser tasked with raising funds using the Kimbia platform I feel like I've had to become a web developer in order to get the tools I need to be successful. Even now, I am highly doubtful that we'll be able to raise our needed funds because we use this product. From a professional fundraiser perspective, I really dislike the look of the fundraising pages. I also hate I have to pull 3 forms to get all of the fundraiser's info for 1 campaign. The user interface is extremely difficult to navigate so I spend a fair amount of time updating pages for fundraisers, I can't ask someone who is raising money for our organization to muddle through changing their pages. I also am VERY turned off that our organization has asked for more training in the product and the response from Kimbia was that we'd have to pay for it, in my opinion that shows a complete lack of customer service and an extreme disinterest from Kimbia on wanting our organization to be successful. I'd love to be able to switch to a superior P2P fundraising product and am hopeful we will be able to in the future.

I could go on and with greater detail to the Cons of Kimbia and even though I hate to give negative product reviews I feel very strongly that Kimbia is a hinderance rather than a help to the effort we are putting forth for our event.

It makes it possible to do an on-going campaign and have confidence that the donations will be tracked, acknowledged and reported accurately.

Pros

Ease of use for the donor for making multiple donations and learning about the nonprofits; the Kimbia team is fantastic to work with and always very responsive.

Cons

So far, the inability to automatically add recurring gifts to the leaderboard. It understates our impact and causes angst. I hope that can be worked out soon.

It is easy to use for those who are not tech savvy. Customer service is superb! Everyone I've worked with has been responsive and supportive.

Cons

We set solid time limits on time restricted pledges. We have to adjust end dates for pledges. It's not a huge problem as we can access the site from any computer with internet access and set reminders.

We have raised more money!

Pros

Customer Service is top notch. Always helpful and easy to access. The way it integrates with our own website is very nice. Since it doesn't take you to a 3rd party site, it streamlines things for our guests and donors.

Cons

I wish it was a little easier to navigate the back end pages. When first using, it's not super user friendly. it takes a lot of clicks to figure some set up out.

Pros

Kimbia makes creating new donation forms very easy. The reporting function is highly configurable to create automated reports for different team members. Support is responsive to requests.

Cons

Individual form elements are not as customizeable as other form generators. Styling is controlled via external style-sheets.

It serves its purpose in tracking online donations.

Pros

After becoming acquainted with the software's capabilities, it offers a number of useful options for generating reports and tracking donations.

Cons

The software is very difficult to navigate and could be more user-friendly. What's more, the software should have more native capabilities that allow it to easily interact with other systems.

We have certainly managed to raise funds time and time again, which is great! We just want a better workflow and design to be implemented.

Pros

Peer-to-peer fundraising has some nice features. Setting up a basic registration form is pretty easy.

Cons

Complete setup of a full campaign is very difficult unless you have a lot of experience with how everything works and where the settings are buried. The site is also not very responsive. You'll edit a setting, push submit, and the screen will sit for a little bit before doing anything. You might get a message that something didn't work after that. Creating a report requires a LOT of clicking around usually. The entire Kimbia platform needs to be updated badly. It has an early 2000's aesthetic and workflow. Sites today are a lot more streamlined and intuitive. With the right redesign, Kimbia could be something truly great. We don't use all of the features it has to offer because setting them all up is like navigating a maze. Settings typically have no description as to what exactly it is.
