    Overall, it has been an excellent experience with the Brilliant Directories team. I had many questions and found a lot of my answers in their very active Facebook group. They were very quick to answer all of my questions when I reached out to the team or support. This is literally one of the most comprehensive association/director/membership platforms available and you can have it up and running in a few hours. It is a game-changer for us since we've tried many other options.

    Pros

    We love the fact that with Brilliant Directories, anyone can have their site up and running ready to accept new embers within a day. This is a mature, robust platform with outstanding features. Our use case is an association with a multi-tiered member directory. After testing the site, we found that Brilliant Directors meets and exceeds our goals. The platform offers many features we had not thought of that will add great value and help us scale quickly. We like the fact that everything is built within the platform and the user interface is pretty good, especially compared to the competition.

    Cons

    A few of the feature limits, like storage, are potentially a bit low if the site membership grows significant, which is the goal. Fortunately, they have add-ons at affordable prices so the features can grow in pace with the site.

    Right Choice!

    Pros

    I tried almost every membership and directory software in the industry. Overall, Brilliant Directories is the best solution for me. I used the free trial option for a week and loved it. It is so easy to use and it's an awesome product even without the VIP Add-Ons.

    Cons

    I'll let you know once I open it to the world. I haven't tested it with the real members yet.

    Reasons for Switching to Brilliant Directories

    When I compared the functions and the price, its the best of them. The other huge factor is [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]. I had so many questions, concerns and demands. He kindly answered all my questions, solved my concerns and helped me within my budget. I'll start my project asap thanks to him. I hope I'll get the same support after the sale.

    On the positive side, Brilliant Directories is very easy, in fact effortless, to initially get up and running. That's good.

    On the negative side, I'm finding it difficult to understand how to customize the system according to my needs. I am a web developer with years of experience with php, javacscript, SQL Server, etc. I just a simple set of documentation which tells me how I can access the source code, and what the API is (if there is one).

    The Customer Service response time is very fast, and so far they have been very good at helping with DNS changes. However, with regards to customization, so far I have only received responses telling me it can't be done, or I have to ask for a quote in the marketplace, or I have to spend $100 of my allowance to set up a call with an expert.

    I am a web developer! I want to do this stuff myself. Please help me out here. (I've already paid a reasonable amount of money. If I need something that I can't do myself then, rest assured, I'll pay you more).

    Thank you.

    Outstanding!

    Outstanding!

    Pros

    After a lot of research, I settled on Brilliant Directories. They have been outstanding regarding customer support and the granularity of the website controls/options is more than I had hoped for which is very beneficial to how I had intended to implement my website. I could not recommend Brilliant Directories more - Fantastic! They have made me a fan.

    Cons

    There is a high learning curve, but BD has many videos and support articles, not to mention outstanding customer support, so that has mitigated my lack of knowledge.

    Love it for two big reasons!

    Loving it and loved the service. Super quick and responsive service.

    Loving it and loved the service. Super quick and responsive service.

    Pros

    There were two reasons I bought Brilliant Directories within hours of discovering it!

    Firstly, the software itself was far better than any other directory I had found by far (including the horrible experience of trying to build one on Wordpress with ListingPro).

    Secondly, the service. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]called me within minutes of my inquiry and patiently walked me through the platform. She was super clear and very helpful and I "walked" away with 3 licenses!

    Cons

    Nothing yet - I am still building it but it's clear to me that is is excellent.
