Pros: Integration with Raiser's Edge!

Cons: A little pricey for add-ons.

Overall: If you use Raiser's Edge as you fundraising CRM and you're in need of event management software, then Auction Maestro is the way to go. The two companies have a partnership and so the two systems work very well together. Aside from nice integration features, AM has a really cool online auction and mobile bidding features, as well as a ton of other things.

Pros: The way it keeps all our auction items organized and being easily to assign winners

Cons: So many built-in reports sometimes makes it difficult and time-consuming to find the report you want

Overall: We use Auction Maestro for our benefit's silent auction and have found it to be a very good program for keeping the auction items and the auction itself organized and running smoothly from start to finish.

Software of choice! Wouldn't dream of running the auctions without it!

Pros: Comprehensive program addressing all gift and guest data storage and reports. Banquet registration, seating assignments, meals. Bidding and invoicing. WebMaestro for online data entry from anywhere there is internet access, by staff and volunteers. TextToBid.

Cons: It isn't the software, it's remembering all its features and how to use them, when under pressure. For example, when someone at the auction says: "What was the item number of the waffle iron," some people will scroll through the likeliest sections to find it, but in the Item Viewer there is a search option that is a shortcut. The more comprehensive a program is, the more the operators need to learn. It is worth it!

Overall: As an auction consultant, I have assisted scores of charities in utilizing Maestro since 1995. Its many enhancements make it SO robust. The developers have listened to auction managers and added many features, countless reports, and easy self-generated data extractions for customized merging. Ease of use is correlated with use of webinars, online tutorials and experience. The more you know the easier it is! It is comprehensive, combining all aspects of gift and guest data management and integration. The WebMaestro feature allows access to the product from anywhere. It so easy for volunteers and staff to enter data at any time from home or office or literally any place that they have internet access. The money saved by engaging volunteers to perform what was once the task of overburdened and limited office staff, cannot be overestimated - not least by the staff! Not to mention that volunteers feel valued when given meaningful tasks that they can accomplish. Recent inquiries have received virtually immediate call-backs from technical support, much appreciated!

Recommendations to other buyers: Find out who else is using it in your area and contact them to learn how they have taken advantage of its features. Start a users group. Engage an experienced consultant.

Pros: User friendly. Volunteers can easily assist with data entry.

Cons: Expansion packets are too expensive. Our budget does not allow us to try these benefits.

Overall: We have used Maestro Pro for the past 10 years. The value is excellent for the price. In comparing this to other options, Maestro offered excellent features for a reasonable price.

Recommendations to other buyers: It would be really nice for people to work on our auction from multiple locations, rather than the computer(s) with the software.
