Pros: It provides a good overall framework for managing an auction. There are little things that can be and in fact are being done by their design staff to simplify processes which encourages me even more about using the software next year. The event showcase was great and the general organizational focus of the software was very helpful. I am sure with a year under our belts it will be even better next year! The Highly recommend to anyone!

Cons: When RSVPing, one sees guests as part of a party, so whatever name they are registered as (e.g. guest 1, etc.) it corresponds to a party. At checkout, you may only see "guest 1" and have to match things up on the fly. The display pages seemed to print upside down if using as a table tent. Essentially little things but not great problems.

Overall: Organizational improvement, improved event management and customer enjoyment. Would not do an auction again without it.

Pros: Just about EVERYTHING! My company switched from Greater Giving to ReadySetAuction this year for our Fall Festival and Silent Auction and what a difference did it make. RSA saved me so much time this year, all I had to do was put the correct information in and the software did everything else for me (no more days of having to type the same information 3 different times in 3 different places). This software is EXTREMELY user friendly, their customer service is top notch and the price is right. Another benefit for me was it's compatible with DonorPerfect! I would highly recommend this to anyone!

Cons: I really have no BIG complaints about this software. My only hiccup was that you can't have 2 packages with the same name (for instance, we do a silent auction of gift certificates and if you have 2 gift certificates for the same place and same amount but you want to separate them, you have to change the name of the second one slightly, even if that means just putting an extra space).

Overall: Saved us time and money!

Pros: Great customer service.

Cons: Not enough packaging options.

Overall: I thought the software was great, with a few exceptions. Overall the customer support was amazing. I wish there was more flexibility and options in packaging pricing. I feel like if there were more options and price points available, it would improve.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would recommend more packaging options.
