Sidebar Reporting Video Introduction

What if you could take something you do at work every day, and produce better results in 1/5th the time? That’s what SideBar Reporting can do for you – it makes building selection filters easy and efficient!

Similar to travel websites, it enables you to change parameters on the fly to quickly view new information. You can enter filter criteria, view the report, and refresh the report with different criteria without ever leaving the report screen! Plus, you can graph some of this data right there on the screen, instead of exporting to Excel, to gain a better understanding of the data and make better decisions.

For our small nonprofit, GiftWorks’ new pricing structure would be at least triple what we now pay annually. There are several aspects of GiftWorks that we find either inefficient or restrictive or both, and the new services being offered by FrontStream didn’t seem to offer additional value equal to the new costs We were also interested in moving to a hosted platform instead of server-based GiftWorks, which operates quite slowly when multiple users are logged in. The cost of GiftWorks Anywhere was prohibitive for us even before the FrontStream acquisition so we decided last fall to evaluate new software.We looked at four options – DonorPerfect Online, Bloomerang, Salesforce and Neon by Z2 Systems. We have three staff members and several trusted volunteers who enter data. DonorPerfect and Bloomerang quickly emerged as the two front runners for both system design and ease of use. In the end, we chose DonorPerfect because of the screen setup and robust reporting functions. We believe data entry, integrity and reporting will be easier and more efficient with DonorPerfect Online. We can’t wait to get started!
