About 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.

    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)

    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.

    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.

    It has been fascinating to see Hivebrite grow over the years from a start-up to a hugely professional software provider with an extremely professional and fast helpdesk, great relationship manager and fantastic updates on some of the key features.

    Pros

    The Live Feed, Events, and Directory are great features for a community. Particularly welcome are that the users are able to create their own events, post on the live-feed and update their profile as they wish. The customization is easy and allows to integrate into the existing CDI.

    Cons

    The media center is even after 4 years not what I hoped it would do. It is difficult to share files for the users and in general just unclear to use. I am very much looking forward to the new mentoring module that is currently being implemented!

    Wij gebruiken Hivebrite als tool om onze alumnicommunity te beheren en uit te bouwen. Op deze manier bieden we onze alumni een plek waar alle relevante info voor hen verzameld wordt en ze elkaar kunnen ontmoeten. Bovendien kunnen we intern in één systeem werken om onze alumnigegevens te beheren.
    Hivebrite staat open voor suggesties en de customer service en accountmanager doen altijd hun best om je vragen te beantwoorden of oplossingen te zoeken. Tot nu toe een aangename en vlotte samenwerking.

    Pros

    Hivebrite is een kant- en klare tool die je op zich gemakkelijk in gebruik kan nemen en kan instellen naargelang de behoeften van de organisatie. Het is een mooie en professioneel ogend product, wat van belang is om eindgebruikers aan te spreken.
    Er is een ruim aanbod aan functionaliteiten, die je volgens je eigen noden kan in- of uitschakelen. Op vlak van functionaliteiten en lay-out kan je dus vlot gaan customizen. Je bepaalt zelf hoe je website eruitziet, welke infovelden er in een profiel staan, welke tabs je inschakelt, wat zichtbaar is voor wie,....
    Een grote troef zijn de mogelijkheden op vlak van subgroepen of subcommunities. Groepsadmins hebben veel autonomie om hun eigen community uit te bouwen.
    Een ander voordeel zijn de uitgebreide filtermogelijkheden om gebruikers op te zoeken. Je kan zo ook niet-actieve gebruikers rechtstreeks vanuit Hivebrite uitnodigen om te registeren.

    Cons

    Hoewel je veel kan customizen gaat het nog altijd om een kant- en klaar product. De mogelijkheden en functionaliteiten zijn begrensd omdat je altijd binnen dit kader blijft werken. Zo werkt de betaaltool uitsluitend met creditcard en niet met lokale betaalopties.
    Daarnaast is het niet altijd evident om de Hivebrite software te laten corresponderen met andere tools of software. Daar is bijkomend programmeerwerk voor nodig. Ook om gegevens te exporteren zijn de mogelijkheden gelimiteerd.

    Une seule plateforme pour développer le réseau des diplômés de HELMo... C'est juste génial! D'autant que l'on peut proposer aux utilisateurs de rejoindre des groupes d'utilisateurs distincts, selon leurs centres d'intérêts.

    Pros

    La plateforme évolue chaque jour car des développeurs y travaillent jour après jour. Du coup, vous bénéficiez des avancées et c'est un énorme plus. Elle est facile d'utilisation et intuitive. Elle propose plusieurs fonctionnalités intéressantes pour les utilisateurs. EN tant qu'admin, j'apprécie en particulier le logiciel pour envoyer des campagnes d'e-mail ainsi que le module Evenement qui permet le paiement en ligne. L'annuaire séduit aussi les utilisateurs. LA relation avec Hiverbite est super. Le personnel est super réactif .

    Cons

    1. La fonctionnalité Opportunité professionnelle est bien mais pas assez personnalisable au niveau des secteurs d'activité pour faciliter la recherche d'emploi des utilisateurs. Comme l'évolution de la plateforme dépend des "gros" clients, on doit parfois être patient pour qu'une amélioration souhaitée soit mise en place.
    2. Le support HIvebrite (mode d'emploi, webinar, ...) est en anglais uniquement. Dommage (heureusement l'équipe support répond en français et est hyper efficace et sympathique).
