"Mind Blowing"

What do you like best?

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!

What do you dislike?

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).

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Saved us time and money!

"There's a lot to like if you can handle the cost"

What do you like best?

You don't need to be a computer expert to use the product. There is no coding involved. You can set up your sponsors, packages and bidders fairly easily. I love that you can run easily set up and manage an online auction in lieu of or in addition to a live or silent auction. You may establish maximum bids, set “buy it now” thresholds, etc. It is highly flexible.

What do you dislike?

It's among the more expensive options. I also wish you could utilize the software for a longer period of time after the event.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed a way to set up and manage an online and in-person auction event for a non-profit. This allows us to easily do so. And it allows us to have multiple individuals perform functions of varying levels of complexity without requiring massive training.

"Does the work of 10 people!"

What do you like best?

The multiple features...from being able to save donor information year over year, to adding donations and being able to package and put them online. The correspondence is also a great feature, to be able to invite, thank, and invoice folks.

What do you dislike?

I HATE that the auction catalog is only visible for a two week window. We work so hard as a committee to solicit donations - we want to be able to make them visible as soon as the items are received to give our donors some exposure and build excitement for our program. The excuse as to why it costs an additional fee are weak - the software is already housing the data and information.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure your team is ready for it, I got considerable push-back from other volunteers on using this product.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a parent volunteer, it solves the problem of handing off information year to year including donors. The software more importantly saves time to give our committee a one-stop-shop where we can all work in real time.

We liked the simplicity of use . . . easy to find things generally. simple user interface.

"Great for small nonprofits "

What do you like best?

For a young nonprofit, ReadySetAuction offers a great amount of staff control for orgs that are new to auction-style fundraisers for galas etc.

What do you dislike?

ReadySetAuction's interface takes some getting used to, and the user control—while it makes the software less expensive—means that multiple people needed to be trained in it to prevent issues.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helped our nonprofit track attendees, in-kind donated auction items, yields, and more for our first-ever gala.
