Roll Call is a church management solution that can be deployed either on-premise or in the cloud. It offers a centralized membership database, contribution tracking system, group and class management system, children’s check-in system and church attendance portal.
Roll Call’s membership database allows users to capture contact information for storage in a unified location. It also helps users communicate with members of the congregation and view attendance data at a glance.
Users can track congregation participation in small groups, classes, volunteer boards and leadership boards. By allowing for the creation of unique directories for different activities, Roll Call helps users remain aware of who is active and save time on administrative duties.
On-premise pricing depends on the church congregation’s size and the number of concurrent users. Roll Call’s cloud-based deployment option is available on a tiered subscription basis.
This solution also offers a range of customer care, including live phone support, remote access support, training videos and optional on-site training.

I was looking to save our church some money on office expenses but also find a program that works well with Mac. RollCall fit the bill on both accounts! We are saving $1400 a year now!! That's a lot for a small church! Thanks RollCall!
I love that it works well for those that are data entry focused, keyboard shortcuts all work great so there is very little 'mousing' around on the screens. The report exports to Numbers spreadsheets work really well and are much quicker than what we were using before. The number of different reports I can access make it really easy to get all kinds of information into nice presentations for meetings. I also love how I can so easily save it to a stick and "take RollCall home" to work at home too.
Our children's ministry wishes it could keep track of the kids club points system together with Check-In. Beyond that, I can't really say there is anything else I don't like!

I like the multi tabs in the families and separate records for each person for tithing, reporting, and groups.
A good deal of Extra things that waste time and are either overkill or double info. Some of the inflexibilty in fields and their outputs when some of the records generate. Although the records are as a family, they still function separately, so you have to visit each person with changes (except phone & address). Can be slow and time consuming.
Take a look at your 5-10 year projection of work / ministry. Know that they will grow and you will need Roll Call to grow with it. Like 1 service to 2 services, or double Sunday School hours, or multi campus setup, families with multi last names and the generation of reports on them, SS check-in and security issues

The team is very responsive to our needs. It is always a pleasure to be able to dialogue directly with the programmers. The folks at Roll Call listen to their customers; and most often implement suggestions that come from the customer.
Nothing we don't like about the vendor. It would be nice if the product offered a little more artificial intelligence in terms of helping us reach the members and visitors that are at risk of falling through the cracks. Don't get me wrong, the information is there, but it does require a bit of knowledge of logical operators to extract it.
It is amazing the amount of Church Management Systems that are available. Do your due diligence; run the numbers and consider what it means to be a good steward of the resources God has entrusted to you. Can you really justify a monthly recurring fee PLUS an annual support fee?

It is a reasonable price compared to other products on the market.
It is difficult to figure out at first. I had some trouble.
Make sure that you know how many people you will actually be entering into the database before purchasing. I had entered entire families (not just the kids), not realizing that each parent would be counted as an entry. When I went back to add visitors later on, I was unable to do so because I had exceeded the number of people who could be entered. Although this problem was easily solved by getting an update, I was confused for a while about why this was happening.
