Survey finds fundraisers disatisfied with fundraising software

A survey by IT specialists Tate Bramald has confirmed that fundraisers are not satisfied with the fundraising software on offer to them.

The survey reported that there are over 100 fundraising software systems in use in the UK, leading to an “immature market.” The 51 respondents to the questionnaire used 14 different packages.

Fewer than one third of them would recommend their fundraising package to another fundraiser. The key issues for fundraisers were the lack of integration capabilities with other systems and the lack of reporting capabilities.

John Tate, director of Tate Bramald, said: “Organisations looking to select new systems need to take considerable care in the selection process to ensure that they buy the right product.”
