Customer Testimonials

CUSTOMERS TESTIMONIALS

Steve DeAses

CTO

Corpus Christi Digital

The platform has good tools for establishing pricing packages and member features. It also has email templates for communicating with members. Another great monetization feature is the Lead Generation tool. I also like the availability of a Developer Marketplace where I can find developers who are ...familiar with the platform and can customize my website the way I want it. My “Customer Success Agent” (sales agent) was very nice to work with, and she (“CJ”) spent 1.5 hours on the phone with me explaining the capabilities of the software and getting me comfortable with the purchase. I’ll be getting more familiar with software as I populate and customize my directory, but I’ve had a good experience so far.

Affordable and the fact that a “lifetime” license option exists is great… so you don’t have to worry about a monthly payment for the remainder of your organization’s life. I recently bought a lifetime license to Brilliant Directories on behalf of a nonprofit organization I am involved with. It is t...he second time I bought this software for a nonprofit. My experience each time made me confident that the company provides excellent services, good training and tutorials, and on top of that is in a range of affordability even for new nonprofit organizations. And there is almost unlimited growth with this system, so an organization is not boxing itself in by choosing a less expensive system which they will have to replace as they grow. Brilliant Directories should be able to take any organization or business as far “down the road” as they choose to go.

We knew from the beginning that we would need support as we developed our first directory site. When we were comparing the various products available, we paid careful attention to customer service. I even called the customer care numbers, just to see what happened. Now that we have chosen Brilliant... Directories, we haven’t been disappointed. Our first launch has been made much easier thanks to their first-class documentation, videos, and, of course, people. Overall it’s practical and easy to use.
