So happy we made the switch to Toucan Tech!

We are finding the Toucan Tech team an absolute joy to deal with. They know their stuff and are incredibly responsive and customer-focussed. I couldn't be happier that we have made the switch.

Pros

Having everything integrated in one system has radically improved our working processes. I have a very small team and reducing our admin load means we can spend more of our time doing the really important stuff like meeting donors and creating inspiring campaigns - which is also what we enjoy most.

Cons

We probably weren't fully prepared for the workload involved in verifying new members to the online community and this has made us review exactly when we fully launch the portal to our whole alumni community.

Reasons for choosing ToucanTech

Having one integrated system definitely appealed. TT also offered great value for money and seemed the slickest product which was best suited to our needs.

Reasons for switching to ToucanTech

We found RE too complex for our needs and also lacking in other areas (i.e. alumni relations and events). It felt like we needed a data expert on the team in order to gain proper reporting value from it and this was never going to be an option. I also grew increasingly frustrated with the time it was taking to rollout full functionality to NXT. We had already made the decision to move before news came out of their data breach in 2020, but their handling of that situation made me even more certain we had made the right decision.

Using Toucan Tech to run an Alumni Website and Database

We are very pleased with Toucan Tech, it works for us and is much less complicated than our previous database. The website is easy to maintain and perfect for what we need to communicate with our members.

Pros

I find it easy to use, adding events and news stories is intuitive and can be done with very little training. Accessing the data is also very easy and can be done quickly on a PC or on your phone.

Cons

I think the only thing we would like to add is an Instagram feed to our Home page.

Reasons for choosing ToucanTech

We felt that it was the best option for us, we wanted a website and a database in a single package, it also offered good value for money.

Needs fulltime use, otherwise very frustrating to use occasionally

I use it very seldom, but find it frustrating to obtain the results I require. Help information is on separate webpage and the search on that is not comprehensive.

Pros

It's comprehensive and obviously has many features that are not relevant to some users

Cons

It's not intuitive, and no hints are given when an error occurs

Reasons for choosing ToucanTech

Not in my remit

Reasons for switching to ToucanTech

Not my decision!

A user-friendly and comprehensive solution backed by exceptional customer service

Pros

ToucanTech meets all the needs of our school fundraising, alumni and community engagement programs. It is incredibly intuitive and - because it is purpose-designed for an organisation like ours - pretty much everything just works as it should right from the outset. The support team are extremely responsive and are also proactive in offering help and suggestions. We have barely needed any assistance from our IT team. Useful new functionality is constantly being added, and I'd like to see our school expand use further, for example to manage the whole school website and/or to manage admissions as that module gets finalised.

Cons

Nothing of any note. A couple of minor and inconsequential bugs were quickly sorted.

Reasons for choosing ToucanTech

ToucanTech was competitively priced, purpose-designed for an organisation like ours and offered a comprehensive solution that was all included for the price. Alternative products were going to be much harder to install and implement; were going to work out more expensive, especially when factoring in the fees for optional modules and support. There was a noticeable difference in terms of how well the product worked from the outset - and the likelihood of having requested modifications implemented - compared to products offered by massive organisations where it felt the proposed solution was an unimportant afterthought compared to their main business in commercial and other markets.

The perfect solution to kick start your community management and engagement

We needed to get all out data in to one easily accessible system and have a single comprehensive interface dedicated to our alumni community.

Pros

ToucanTech has a simple to use and navigate user interface. It manages multiple functions which is great for a small office. The customisation is good and I have been impressed by the product enhancements and development since we started using the software.

Cons

The fundraising and donation logging feature could be improved. I would also like to see more ability to managed the news images that are uploaded.

Reasons for choosing ToucanTech

Functionality and price were big factors. We are a small office so I need something that could be installed quickly without lots of additional costs for data migration. I was also mindful that while we needed a more comprehensive solution we did not need to 'over tool' ourselves. The customer support provided by ToucanTech was spot on from the start, provided just the right level of support and autonomy for me to manage the system in house.

Reasons for switching to ToucanTech

We started to move from a paper based system in 2016 and by 2017 had reached the software limits of InTouch CRM, we were looking for software that provided an integrated database and user portal and ToucanTech fit the bill.
