Breeze Software


 

Created with the needs of small to mid-sized churches in mind, Breeze provides an easy way to access member details quickly, boosting the efficiency of overall member management. Breeze  allows churches to assign a group of people with a “tag.” Tags can be used on internal and external groups, including volunteers, staff, and event attendees.

Breeze also allows churches to track contributions. Using this functionality, users can monitor the contributions of donors, and generate giving reports based upon a donor’s giving history. The system is easily customizable, and users can easily update custom fields, as well as import existing data.

Additionally, Breeze features an event management module created to track attendance, generate reports, and more. Users can easily use Breeze to print name tags for event attendees, and can analyze attendance to determine which demographics are present.

I've used other ChMS, in large churches. When I joined the team at a local church and discovered their type of record keeping, I was shocked! Sticky notes, bits of paper, notations written on the inside of folders. When I asked why a ChMS wasn't being used, I was told the staff was too busy to maintain one...and that the budget wouldn't allow a costly system. Upon discovering Breeze, I encouraged the church to consider it. The lead pastor was immediately impressed with Breeze's offerings! He was "sold" upon learning the monthly cost of Breeze could be saved by discontinuing "upgrades" and modules of other software they were using! I was able to move all the data into Breeze myself, build a small data entry team of volunteers, and establish a dependency on Breeze within just two weeks of signing on! The staff did not have to sit through hours of training, hundreds of recorded videos, or Q and A sessions! They logged in and were able to do what they needed with little to no assistance!

Pros

Ease of use, low cost, quick support, remote check-in.

Cons

I would like to have more control when merging two records (for instance, if I want to keep the cell phone number of Person #1 while keeping the mailing address of Person #2). Currently, all data of one record replaces all data of another record when merging.

Advice to Others

Don't think too long or too hard. This really is a no-brainer. You will quickly see how easy it is to use and you will gain confidence in all the data you are recording for your attendees and members.

We had ACS and at a previous church we used Fellowship one. Both were so clumsy that it felt like I needed an IT degree or an IT department to do anything. Then someone suggested Breeze from a discussion on a youth pastor facebook group. I kept trying to find the flaw to this monthly system. There weren't any and it just keeps improving. Launching new features all the time and most recently a new App for iPhone and android. I would rate higher than 5 stars if I could.

Advice to Others

Just try it for a few months. At $ per month, you can't lose.

Breeze is intuitive, clear, and simple to use. It is adaptable to and powerful enough to meet all of our needs. Customer response and communication has been quick, friendly, and extremely helpful. The ability to add in fields you want is easy to do and seamless.

Likes Least

There is no app. The events page is not sufficient. It is less than adequate in promoting events, but good for check-in. The ability to enter emails is limited to one designated email address per profile. You can additional emails, but they are entered as text.

Recommendations

With any database company, insist on a trial period, which Breeze offers. This was extremely helpful in discovering how comparatively good Breeze is to the others. Know your needs and desires, and see if the database fulfills them without cluttering up the platform with all sorts of things you'll never use. Breeze does this well, and it's one of the biggest reasons it's simple and clear to use.

When we were looking to update our church management software we wanted something that was easy to use, easily accessible from multiple platforms, and simple. When we discovered Breeze we knew it looked like a good fit. Once we contacted them we knew we were right. The founder is always an email away and usually answers questions in a matter of minutes. Breeze is so easy to use its almost unbelievable. Everything that we need is here. And we have Breeze always willing to listen if we have an idea for an additional feature. We love Breeze!

Honestly after 9 months with Breeze, we don't have any complaints. They are a great fit for our church.

Recommendations

Ask Breeze all your questions. That's what we did and have been very satisfied with our Breeze experience.

There's not an app that goes along with it - they do have a decent solution, but having an app that you can tell your congregation to download is a really easy way to get as many users as possible using the directory.

Recommendations

It's easy to use, you can add in any fields you want, Jon & the Breeze Team are fantastic at updating and changing things around for the better, the check-in works very easily.

We just migrated from a big church management software company that we have had for a very long time which was not user-friendly and very difficult and costly to be trained on. We came across Breeze ChMS during our search and have been amazed at its intuitiveness, design, customization, cost, and how easy it is to navigate and use. Breeze was SUPER to help export everything including contributions. Looking forward to Breeze ChMS making life in our church office much more smooth and efficient. I highly recommend Breeze to any church looking for an easy, functional, changeable database. Thanks Breeze for standing up to your name!

I have not yet experienced a problem with what Breeze can do for us. The switch has been great!

Recommendations

In their search, do not hesitate to ask your support team for any specifics they are looking for in church management software as I'm guessing you would be able to customize just about any need.

The software is easy to navigate and intuitive. I don't need training to figure it out. It comes with unlimited users and some nice features like SMS. I actually enjoy using it, which is not something I've ever said about church management software.

Likes Least

I'm not a huge fan of the attendance tracking by Calendar view. On the plus side it works, but if you have a ton of classes on Sunday that you're tracking, it gives the impression visually that you're not using the software correctly, as it's so cluttered and one Sunday takes up most of the page. But it works, and it's easy.

Recommendations

We looked at Breeze for over a year before purchasing. In my view, it's the only software we could find that had an intuitive experience that didn't require a lot of training for some of our non-techie volunteers. We really didn't want to purchase software that needed the purchase of training to use the software that we already purchased! Breeze is dead simple. You do lose some "power" with simplicity, but Breeze has managed to accomplish everything that we need. I mentioned that it took a year for us to start using Breeze, and that was because it lacked a single feature that we needed. The developers eventually added the feature along with many other helpful features (developers are not lazy). Breeze lives up to its name and accomplishes the basics very well. Making software intuitive is evidently not easy.

The software itself is cloud-based and is very intuitive. If you like things that are self-explainable then this software is for you! If you happen to get stuck on an issue or have a question - guess what?! The vendor is only an email or phone call away and they ALWAYS respond promptly!

Likes Least

There are some minor nuances our church needed to overcome from downgrading from a very large vendor (and several customizable settings) to a more simplistic approach. There's not much worth mentioning but small differences we needed to rethink (e..g how our directory will now print and appear, how spouses are treated vs the children in a family-setting, etc.). Nothing major!

Recommendations

Breeze is very affordable for what they have to offer - this was one of the strong selling-points for our church. We also wanted something intuitive from child check-in to visitor tracking, to follow-ups for our staff. Give Breeze a chance and I think you'll be impressed with what you see!
