Pros: I highly value GivingData because of their deep commitment to providing a modern platform making it easier for grantmaking entities to achieve their mission. They honestly and earnestly work with clients, greeting challenges as an opportunity to further their offerings.

Selection and implementation of a grant management system is stressful and fraught with pitfalls. The GivingData team helped soften the inevitable stress by providing solutions efficiently. Through the use of agile methodology, they delivered (mostly) on time and budget. Overall it was a fairly smooth implementation from data/document migration (out of GIFTS Classic) to training new users.

The product is very easy to learn and intuitive to use with a clean interface. Core components are in place with enhancements and new functionality being released all the time. Overall the functionality is reliable and the few occasions it has not been they have been responsive.

The tax verification, document management and budget forecasting functionality match or beat its competitors. I love that they already have a track record of moving data across platforms.

We have received positive feedback and solid adoption from staff at all levels from programs to grants to finance to leadership.

Their non-technical staff has experience working in a wide range of foundations and bring that understanding to bear when helping on an implementation or when building functionality.

Cons: The contact management functionality is a little underdeveloped and has a 2018 target for improvement. The process of building individual merge field-based templates is time consuming and they lack some materials that a more established system may offer.

There is still room to improve some of their data visualization offerings, ability to save/share/customize how query results are displayed, and batch processing.

Admin tool is being updated regularly and it is still a few versions away from where we need it to be. What works is good but it is not all there yet.
