Our honest opinion...
Springly and Bloomerang are both industry leaders in the nonprofit software sector, with each one tailored toward a slightly different audience. Choosing the right software for you will depend on your organization's needs, size, structure, and more. Let's take a closer look!
Bloomerang are true experts when it comes to fundraising, taking care of all your donor needs, from a complete donor database and advanced online giving, to exceptional reporting & analytics. Unlike many other donation software, Bloomerang have even developed their own mobile application, giving you access to their services no matter where you are! However, while they may be titans in the fundraising space, a lack of diversity in their features prevents them from being the "go-to" software for all nonprofits. Without a website builder or internal accounting feature for example, Bloomerang is unable to cater for the full range of management needs that most nonprofits require.
Springly, on the other hand, fills this gap by acting as an all-in-one space for nonprofit management. You are still able to process online donations and track your donors, while also having access to: accounting, membership campaign creation, website building, and more. Springly may not have the same range of donation buttons as Bloomerang, or even a card swiper application, but considering the smaller pricing incraments and the fact there is a free version available, Springly is made very accessible to the smaller/medium nonprofit. Even when considering the range of third-party integrations offered by Bloomerang, such as QuickBooks and SurveyMonkey, having to purchase these additional software makes full A-Z management result in a much larger cost to the user in the long run.
In this way, Bloomerang is ultimately reserved for much larger organizations with significant capital and sophisticated donation needs, whereas Springly is a champion for the small-medium size nonprofit who possesses a range of management needs.
