WizeHive Software


 

WizeHive is a web-based and iPad-compatible solution that offers grant management and membership management software suitable for non-profit organizations. The grant management platform organizes grant applications into folders through automated workflow rules. Applications can be collected through an organization’s website, a facebook page, or even directly via a hosted software portal.

A report generator offers flexible reporting and custom text to make changes in the grant application. An email message can be sent to grant applicants upon submission. The solution offers unlimited entries that can be accepted into the system, the unlimited number of files that applicants can include with their submission, or the number of folders the system can accommodate. Users can customize forms, dashboards, and reports as per the grants management lifecycle.

WizeHive integrates with accounting systems and email systems and requires no coding or technical skills. A 30-day free trial is offered to non-profits that would like to test-drive the system before making a purchase decision.

 

Supported Operating System(s):
Mac OS, Web browser (OS agnostic), Windows 8

WizeHive is a great easy to use grant review portal that our Kauai United Way staff uses as well as our Allocations committee. This year we will be opening it up to our full Board of Directors. I foresee no problems. It's very easy to use and simple to use.

Pros

Easy to use. Easy and convenient to access. The backend is easy to adjust from year to year.

Cons

Really the only con is the time difference between Hawaii and Pennsylvania. If problems occur... you must contact them early in the day as they do not have 24 customer service. Though problems are far and few between, WizeHive is a great product.

It saved me from using 5 different spreadsheets and Google docs to manage 15 different scholarships, a retention spreadsheet and individual e-mails to promote scholarships and collect data. I do not think it is as expensive and difficult to use as Salesforce or other products. It does seem to be built for scholarship providers as opposed to corporate vendors/sales managers.

Pros

It is adaptable to your needs and seems to be very robust. We rolled in a donor database, multiple scholarships, one application, a retention component and a selection process into one without having to pay for each feature. You are not boxed into one type of format and the designers seem to be very willing to add features as needed. Our contact has been great about being responsive and coaching us along the way so we get what we need on very short deadlines.

Cons

The online help function is not very good. It is hard to tell how making changes in one area will affect the end result. It would be great to be able to look at other scholarship applications and be able to pick and choose from other users to create our own.

WizeHive makes it possible to manage our grant program and the increasing number of proposals that we receive.

Pros

Customer service is very helpful and responsive. They're helpful in answering simple fix questions, as well as brainstorming on how their software can accommodate more complex requests.

Very easy to build your own application form, as well as follow-up forms.

The interface can be customized to fit your organization's branding.

Online help articles are very helpful and easy to follow.

Easy to create and customize reports.

Easy to create a new workspace - its basically a copy, paste function.

Overall - if we were to go through this process again, we would make the same decision to use WizeHive.

Cons

Applicants have to create new credentials every year in order to access their application so, they have separate logins for the year they are reporting in and the year they are applying for - that can get confusing.

Yearly workspaces cannot communicate with one another so doing YTD comparisons can be challenging.

There are some features, such as the calendar and cascading forms, within WizeHive that I wanted to utilize but were not sophisticated enough features to make it worthwhile.

Sending an e-mail to users through the WizeHive app comes from the WizeHive domain and frequently goes to the spam folder. While you can direct replies to an internal e-mail, I would like for the e-mail to also appear as though it was sent from our domain.

The software has enabled us to streamline our process in many ways, allowing us to focus our time betters serving our students, volunteers, and donors.

Pros

With this software we have been able to expand our program in multiple facets. Not only have we been able to add more scholarships, but we have been able to improve upon the way we administer them. The process has been simplified for our staff, our reviewers, our recommenders and our applicants.

Cons

We have new scholarships every year and making changes seems to be a very complex process as those changes need to be made in numerous locations. The software is also costly to have.

This software has allowed up to eliminate paper applications for a complex scholarship application process. It has allowed us to create an online database to track our scholars as well as our donors.

Pros

I appreciate the ease in which we can customize the software to do exactly what we are asking it to do. The flexible platform and the supportive technology support make the process painless to set up the system to perform exactly how we want it to.

Cons

It is difficult to find a negative aspect to this software. It would be nice to have more customization's available on the front end to make the application or platform look exactly as we would like it to look to our consumer.

It's ease of use, for both administrators & users, is the best feature. We have received many compliments from our users and are often amazed ourselves at the minimal set-up requirement necessary to open a new portal. The excellent and timely customer service is a great bonus!

Cons

Every once in a while a user cannot log in with the credentials assigned to them. However, this is an easy fix, and it rarely happens. I could (should) probably talk to my Wizehive support specialist and let him know...I'm confident he could fix this!

Pros

What has been most helpful for us is the flexible work flow and the widgets. We are still learning and understanding all the possibilities and making adjustments as we go.

Cons

So far, not being able to open select fields for our end-users to modify/edit is frustrating but manageable. Also, not being able to pre-populate fields in real time is hard to explain to non-tech savvy ppl because they believe that if the information is there, it should be able to pre-populate anywhere. Ideal situation for us would not have to manually export/import data to link fields together.

We used WizeHive for the first time last year to manage our application and review process for our program. The system saved us a huge amount of time and really helped us manage and understand our data. We have just signed up for a second year!

Pros

My colleague talked a lot about how the software helped her to manage our application and review process. She was able to tell at a glance how the reviewers were progressing. She was also able to run reports so that we could better understand the data that we collected. The staff that I have worked with so far have been responsive and informative when I ask a question.

Cons

As a small non profit, we find the software a little pricey. The amount of work that WizeHive will need to do to set up the system for the second year is significantly less than the first year, and yet the price is basically the same.

We're starting into our third year using WizeHive to administer scholarship and grant applications. The software is intuitive and user friendly for us on the back end and we've gotten positive feedback from our review committees about their user experience as well. It's a pretty standard online application format for applicants and any questions they've had have been easily resolved. We've been very pleased with the responsiveness, professionalism, and competence of the Wizehive staff too. Using this system has made our application/review processes more efficient and we've been very satisfied with the software and our overall experience.

Before WizeHive, our department had lots of files and paperwork to keep track of. We were constantly going back and forth with our clients about sending us certain documents or requirements that we need in order to do our job effectively. Our clients would always complain that our applications were to confusing, time consuming etc. Since we have been using Wizehive, we have had 0 complaints and plenty of compliments. the part we love the most, we do not have to keep track of 100's of files anymore. We don't have to go back and forth with our client because it is all a requirement in our Wizehive submissions. It is still fairly new to us, but so far it has been nothing but great.

I am the administrator of a nonprofit that gives out grants to PhD students. Before we moved to WizeHive we had a long email and paper-trail for each applicant. Now everything is centrally located and stored in the cloud. We've streamlined the application, administration, and review process, which has allowed us to spend more time on getting the right applicants.

While there are always 'nice-to-have' items on the list when looking at new software, the programmers would always try to find a solution. Overall, the applicants, reviewers and myself as the administrator, are very happy with the service.

Ability to go through the backend to make changes or fixes to applications. Review portal is aesthetically pleasing and intuitive to use.

We have used WizeHive for our summer internship application process and have been very, very happy with it -- it's made it so much easier for us to manage the applications we receive and to assemble data. In particular, the review functionality has streamlined our process and avoided wasteful copying. After the initial set-up, we haven't needed much support from year to year, which is terrific - but when we do they are very responsive.

Pros

Overall, the whole system works really well, and the reporting function is terrific.

Cons

The e-mails to references seem to get caught in SPAM filters fairly often, which creates some administrative burden to follow up with those persons. And since we use the system only once a year, it is a bit pricey.

The software has allowed us to simplify the scholarship process. Applications from different cycles are housed in one location and cross reporting is simple and efficient. I like that the same database is used to collect applications reviews and issue and track awards making our manual system seem archaic and ineffective. The customer service is excellent and I always get immediate responses to any inquiries that I have.

One con that I've found and it may be the fault of the user; applicants are not easily able to retrieve lost passwords but instead contact me and I in turn have to contact customer service. If this could be simplified online, it would be awesome!
