Higher Logic Thrive Reviews

“HL Community Platform engages members and aids committee work”

HL community allows our members to engage each other across the country – and across generations (we’ve actually had posts from members in their 80s and 90s – so you know the ease of use is there!) HL community also allows us better communications and project organization. (the competing product we use in this is Board BookIt.)

“Growing Pains to the Max”

Frustrating and time-consuming. It’s already a lot of work to strategize, evangelize, build these programs from scratch, and recruit members; the last stress one needs is the hurdle of getting the platform to work the way it should and getting the resources one needs to fix issues.

Review on Capterra

“Higher Logic is a misnomer”

The software is extremely unreliable, half of the time you get server errors or the whole platform is down. There is also very little customization built into the platform. There is no way to modify your CSS or integrate other features into creating emails such as branded fonts and visually interactive elements. As someone who builds the emails I want to be able to have my emails be on brand with other marketing and promotional materials, this is hard to achieve without sacrificing legibility and flexibility on this platform.
