Comments: 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.

Comments: 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.

Comments: 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.

Comments: 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.

Comments: Wizehive staff extremely helpful and available to answer questions. Platform easy to navigate for both applicants and backend user. A few bugs encountered at the beginning, but were easily fixed by technical staff

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

Cons: Would like users to be able to login to application portal using same email after submitting application (fix in the works).

Comments: 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.

Hi Ilene: Thank you for your business as well as your review! If you continue to have the SPAM problem please contact us directly We send all of our emails out through a 3rd party service called that processes over 20 billion emails a month with a 99%+ deliverability guarantee so we should look into your configuration as this should not be an issue.

Game Changer - Made scholarship process very efficient

Comments: 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!

by WizeHive on May 16, 2016

Thanks for the review and feedback on passwords. We are proud to offer Google Single Sign-On for users. It helps alleviate the password retrieval process for administrators, as well as streamlines the the application process. Here's a blog post on it, and we are happy to discuss offline getting you set-up with it. Cheers! http://blog.wizehive.com/2015/10/05/google-single-sign-on/

Making changes to the application can be a bit complicated so at times we rely more heavily on our Wizehive Administrators than I wish we needed to but without an excellent knowledge of the "back end" there is risk of messing it up

Comments: Together, we have developed a process that works more efficiently for both grant reviewers and applicants. Our customer service and product reliability have been exceptional. Since launching WizeHive, I have not had one single concern about technical performance. This stands in contrast to my initial homegrown process. It is hard to quantify the value of the mental reassurance I now possess with my WizeHive solution. I have been extremely satisfied with our decision to implement WizeHive for our grant management system.

Comments: User-Friendly:
The PBTF has three work spaces with Wizehive: scholarship application, grant application and a recipient-volunteer reporting program. Each work space envisioned came to life with improvements from Wizehive. All of the data, applications, required documents and so forth are in one place which saves so much time and effort. Now we can spend more time in our mission to cure the kids. Wizehive is truly a user-friendly software program.

Wizehive¿s technicians and customer service are reliable. Troubleshooting with Wizehive¿s technicians is a time for programmatic enhancements. Their customer service never disappoints and they also respond within a timely manner.

Comments: Thank you WizeHive for your excellence both as a service provider and patient teammate. Working with the WizeHive crew has been an illuminating, enjoyable and edifying process.

As a small community grant maker we are using Current to restructure our grantee database. Our work with WizeHive in the pass has allowed us to collect a wealth of data which we used this spring in a successful advocacy campaign to restore city funding of arts and culture organizations after a major cut. A victory for us, our grantees and the communities impacted by the power of the arts. The win also allows us to reinstate our Youth Arts Enrichment Grants.

Our shiny new database will allow us to further wield our arsenal of data as well as increase our organizing and mobilization capabilities. We are excited to continue fighting the good fight for our constituents with the tools WizeHive has helped us build and hone.

Comments: I really love this product. I've been using it for a couple of months for an center for the homeless. We have hundreds of people who come to our center. And each one of them have many different problems that we need to find a solution for. But since we have only four employees it is difficult to keep track on everybody. That's why Wizehive Current has been a great help, because it makes it very easy for us to keep information of the people without losing to much time on unnecessary administrative tasks. This way, we can really focus on the people rather than becoming just another bureaucratic organization.

Wizehive Current makes it very easy to build a database from scratch. A great things is the fact that it's in the cloud. I use it with a team of four people, so it's very important that all the records are saved in a central place rather than having thousands of different versions of the same excel sheet.

Comments: We used WiveHive to manage a small internal grant program at our university. Previously, we used Blackboard to organize the proposals, collect reviews, etc., and we nearly all quit the committee because it was so hard to work with the materials! Using WizeHive made the proposal collections, assignments, reviews, and reporting very easy indeed, with far less room for human error. WizeHive was easy to use even for people who were submitting proposals and had no familiarity with the software, and for the committee members who received a little training, it was a breeze. The one criticism I might have is that the submitter/reviewer interface is not very good-looking, but that is a small non-issue.

WizeHive's customer and technical support was outstanding. They do not have 24/7 support because they are a smaller company, but they always responded promptly, even after hours at times. Problems were fixed immediately. The person assigned to me was incredibly patient and helpful, even when I was asking questions that I should have been able to figure out for myself or remember from her tutorials.

We will definitely use WH again for this grant program, and I'm talking WH up to other departments on campus for things like student applications to special programs.

Comments: We spent several weeks researching several database management solutions. We left a lot of messages for companies that called us back with cookie cutter pitches. When I first met Pete from Wizehive - I was struck by two things; He was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Current and he was genuinely interested in helping us figure out how to increase efficiency in our business model.

Once I signed up for Wizehive, I was impressed how easy it was to start getting templates set up, but I still had a lot of questions to really make them come together. When I followed up, Pete set aside time for us to do extensive Q&A sessions and I still can't believe how easy it is to build, customize and create the perfect app in this system. I can not thank him enough because now I only feel limited by my imagination and creativity.

My recommendation? It will take you sometime to learn everything it can do, but once you do. You will love it and all the solutions you can create with it.

Comments: Wizehive is exactly what my company had been searching for. We had originally been collecting our data in simple excel sheets, which was not very productive and absolutely chaotic. When we discovered Wizehive everything changed. It comes with a few templates that every business would use and it is fully customizable so you can use it how ever you want.

Their customer service is phenomenal, the guys on the team showed us how to use the software, critiqued our workspaces to show us how we can use it better, and is almost always available to help you out.

I couldn't ask for a better product or team to work with. If you are looking for a good software to manage your data and keep track of everything than I HIGHLY suggest going with WizeHive. No other software comes close to what they have to offer.

We have been trying for the past 9 months now to find a program that will work for us.

I was fervent in my efforts to try to find something that would work for us and came across this database software. I explained to Peter all the things I'd like to do and he immediately understood. He has gone above and beyond in helping us reach an efficiency goal that we have been looking to attain for quite sometime. Thanks to WizeHive our business can now begin the efficiency process.

Comments: This is my first year using the online application and I have been delighted with it as well as the service provided by WizeHive. I have a complex application system and receive a large number of applications in a short amount of time. I am a staff of one, and have been doing this for 5 years. This is the first year my scholarship process has seemed manageable; I would estimate that my productivity has doubled just by changing to this online application. And the feedback from students who applied both last year and this year have actually congratulated me on the new application, which they say is much easier to understand and use. My WizeHive representative understood my issues and was was very responsive to my requests, handling them quickly and efficiently. She knows her product well and is able to fix programming problems or help me figure out how to get the data I need through the appropriate wording on the application on one side, and report settings on the other.
