Silent Auction Pro was very easy to use. The staff was easy to talk with and would work with you to find a solution. Silent Auction Pro made our program run much smoother than in past years.

Pros

The software was easy to set up, learn, use and teach. Our members loved how quick check-in/out was.

Cons

There is no app, yet. There is a way to make a shortcut on your phone but some people have difficulty doing it.

Had the best experience with Silent Auction Pro.. we were under a short time frame due to restrictions with COVID-19 and getting approval from the administration on an auction software. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN], our event Coach helped us through the whole process. Even when we had a slight error during the event her and the [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] solved it immediately. Very impressed with their company.

Pros

Customer Service is amazing
Really, really, easy to use
TONS of reports to pull for any information you would need
Real-time reports on how much money you are making and the return on the value
The registration page and the ability to customize it to our liking was amazing, especially when recognizing sponsors.
The mobile site was awesome and so easy to use
Texts/Emails that came during the event are helpful

Cons

Can only have one event going at a time
Unable to "edit" thank you letter when going to send out, it pulls straight from the template
The donor v. bidder and confirming identities

Alternatives Considered

Handbid and Greater Giving

Reasons for Switching to Silent Auction Pro

The administration at my college would not approve Greater Giving. Called Handbid and felt their customer service was sub par and really weren't willing to help work through our questions. Plus their fees seemed very high.

Pros

It does the job but doesn't exactly WOW me as a user

Cons

Seemed very basic and run of the mill. Nothing stood out as I had to keep using this.

Response from Silent Auction Pro

Interestingly there is no Cristina P that has used our software since 2019. This is a fake review.

"Cristina" - I'm sending you a copy of my response along with my email address. If you are real, please reach back out to me - if you really used our software and didn't like it I would love to hear more about what it was you didn't like... Jim Donnell - President & Founder.

Saves us so much time. Used to use excel and mail merge to create bid sheets. Then had to enter results into a shared Sheet. Checkout took a lot longer since had to search the sheet. Also never had an online presence before so this gives us access to more people.

Pros

Using this tool enables us to reach more people. I also like that checkout takes a lot less time and the customers like getting a receipt. The ability to print and check all the items from a donation or auction item perspective is so helpful when setting up. I also like the email feature so we can send messages to our patrons and Thank you notes to our donors. The ability to text winning bid status is fun too. Having the patrons credit card information helps make check out a breeze even if they are not present at the time of close out of the auction.

Cons

Minor glitches with downloading to excel if you use that option. Easy to clean up though. There is a lot to learn to get going with the software but once you understand it, it is easy to use and the customer service is excellent.
