Hivebrite Overview

What is Hivebrite?

Hivebrite is an online community management platform for alumni communities of schools, businesses, non-profits, and incubators, including smaller institutions with limited resources, to global institutions with complex needs. The platform helps clients build brand engagement and networking opportunities for members of all countries and languages.

Hivebrite provides a powerful suite of tools that help manage and engage members, as well as give users full control over their community and brand. Organizations can customize the look of the platform, set user rights and roles for specific permissions, assign multiple admins, and configure visibility settings for specific fields. Institutions can organize users by group, location or industry, and run targeted emailing campaigns to members. Users can import large lists of contacts and their profile attributes to the system, as well as keep track of all profile updates.

Organizations can define how members can access the network by creating a personalized signup form, or choosing to reserve access to paid members only. Users can set up approval rules for invitations to join, as well as allow social sign-in for members with profiles on LinkedIn, Facebook, or Xing. Hivebrite helps manage content with an integrated CMS for creating public pages, menus, members’ areas, and more. Users can post and exchange messages via the platform, and add pictures, video and html using the media center.

Hivebrite’s job board feature lets members share job opportunities, as well as showcase their availability for a new position. Notifications will notify members of any new offers that match their current search. Members can also find other members within the community based on their location, industry, or title, as well as create, join, and map events. Users can sync their upcoming events with Google, Yahoo, or Apple calendars, and even purchase tickets online via the Hivebrite platform.

We were looking for a database, alumni platform and a workspace (groupe with feed, media center, event for meeting and deadline..) and billingual.

YourMembership to Hivebrite migration

We needed to expand our community building effort beyond a single country, while ensuring that each entity may define different membership rates and collect fees in a separate account. The Groups and multiple Payment accounts capabilities provided by Hivebrite matched our requirements.

Great Choice for Alumni Orgs

HiveBrite has been instrumental in helping HBSANC reach our goals which centered around increased membership metrics and more efficiently executing our expansive events calendar (including a recent complete pivot from live to online events). HIveBrite’s Membership and Events modules has empowered us to reach all of those goals with the highest revenue numbers in club history and more club memberships than in the past five years and still climbing. Engagement is high as a large percentage of our alumni base is active on our platform even if they are not paid member. We have also successfully managed over 300 events in the past 2 years since migrating.

We were looking for a database, alumni platform and a workspace (groupe with feed, media center, event for meeting and deadline..) and billingual.

Pros

A lot of personalization (a lot of possibility)
Easy to learn and use
Best customer service you can have
Easy to admin
Always update et good communication
If you have idea (new feature) you can submit them on the blog, people vote and the most voted are choosed for devloppement
French and english customer service
Billingual platform
Back-Office CRM

Cons

The mobile application need some optimisation
The Media center is great but is not optimal as well
Except that, I think it is the best software on the market (I looked for more than 25 alumni platform before making my top 3 than my final selection)

Pros

it has been an enjoyable UX/UI experience using Hivebrite. A platform that combines some of the best features of Squarespace, Mailchimp, Facebook, LinkedIn and Kickstarter. It is easy to use and easy to integrate.

Cons

The page builder functionality requires further refinement and enhancements, in addition to further enhancements across the reporting and analytics related to payments, email and web.

Fast and efficient customer support, dynamic team, very useful release radar webinars.

Pros

When we chose the Hivebrite software, we compared it to other competitors on the French market. Almost two years after starting using it to manage our alumni community, we are very satisfied with our choice : this software as a system was hands on, easily customizable and useful in terms of features (mapped alumni directory, clusters, timeline, events, jobboard, statistics, etc.).

Cons

Developing and launching new features (if requested by client) is not sistematically possible.
The email builder would require some upgrades.

Engagement is high as a large percentage of our alumni base is active on our platform even if they are not paid member. We have also successfully managed over 300 events in the past 2 years since migrating.

Pros

- Migrating our data was incredibly challenging as our existing database had many duplicate users and a vast array of legacy fields to either map to existing fields or create custom fields for. Migration support went above and beyond to guide us in best practices for both cleaning the data, customizing fields and even developing custom filters for our alumni map specific to our org’s needs.
- Ability to efficiently create value for our members with restricted access to online gated content and to features like the sleek Alumni map - eliminating the need for time consuming manual benefits we had been manually tracking previously
- User friendly interface with all in one modules for events, emails, website, analytics
- Great payment processing and integration with Stripe.
- Always developing new features and modules to improve and listening to customer feature requests
- Great customer service. The platform that have some limitations (as all platforms do) but their customer support team is always quick with a solution or work around.
- Not an anonymous large company but working relationship with a team there to support us and cares about our success and meeting our goals.

Cons

- Limited customization of reports- beta reporting module is in development
- Lack of integration All in one and easy to use but It does not integrate with other platforms
- No user forum to learn best practices for different features and use cases- I thinks is on the timeline
