Shelby Church Software


 

Shelby v.5 Church from Shelby Systems is a module-based church management system built to handle the membership and contribution management needs of large and midsize churches. Key features include membership and contact management, attendance tracking, contribution tracking and reporting.

The membership and contact modules streamline the entry and maintenance of contact records for congregation members, visitors and volunteers, track member attendance at events, small groups and classes and allow staff to schedule outreach and follow-ups. This breadth of data gives church leaders a complete view of membership demographics and their participation in church activities.

At the same time, the contribution management module enables accurate financial recordkeeping. Donations and pledges can be recorded and tracked to speed the preparation of giving statements and tax records, and help leaders discover giving trends that might impact campaigns.

Other features include secure check-in, group management, volunteer coordination and resource scheduling.

From our experiences with Shelby V.5 to our conversion to Arena, we have had nothing but headaches. We are ministers not tech wizards and computer code writers. This puts us at a great disadvantage with this system. Several key features that we had become dependant on in V.5, although promised, we're not available to us in Arena. Shelby systems indirectly acknowledges these inadequacies in the creation of a new "user friendly" program Shelby Next.

Recommendations

Know your abilities and limitations. Do your homework and talk to users other than the ones they reccomend.

Have been a customer of Shelby Service products for over 20 years. Service and responsiveness is the cornerstone of what Shelby offers when it comes to operational use and implementations. No calling to get Ticket number and waiting for a response, no frustration in the CSR not understanding what you are asking and having someone else call you back after another waiting period. Willing to hand hold admin people on the phone and using webconnect to solve the issue or train the worker. Offering a web based Prodsuct (Arena) that allows us to virtually do what we need to do in and present it in a way that our church expects to see it and identify it.

Sometimes the bug fixes take longer to get fixed than they should.

Recommendations

Service and responsiveness is key. You and the staff using it will not understand all the things they will need. Being able to get timely answers is very important. Can you modify and customize its use? They all say yes but often you are very very limited as to what and how you can do things.
