Church Windows has helped our church operations in so many ways. The reporting and budgeting options in Accounting have been especially helpful in financial planning and oversight. The payroll module simplifies all things related to payroll (direct deposit, taxes, W-2s, etc). Giving statements are easy to produce, as well as giving reports. People tracking is always a challenge, and the Membership module does so much to help. The support is fantastic, they know the program, and many of them also serve in their local church. Overall, Church Windows is an outstanding product!

PROS

Our church has used Church Windows for many years. It seamlessly tracks people, giving, accounting, and payroll. Each module can be used by itself, or integrated to all work together. The support people are fantastic--friendly, patient, and easy to understand. Training is readily available through online video tutorials, brief online training sessions, workbooks, and the program help feature. The user-friendly software is great for beginners, offers many features for seasoned users, and versatile enough for church volunteers and employees alike.

CONS

Nothing. I love everything about Church Windows!

We use church windows to manage our parishioners’ records and all donations. We have been using this solution for more than 15 years. While it has served us well, it has not grown with changing technology. We are in the process of moving to a cloud-based solution.

PROS

Robust church management solution from a well established provider. Cost of maintenance is negligible. Feature-rich.

CONS

Single platform (Windows only). No viable cloud option (they offer cloud service, but it is really just their regular software on VM). Difficult UI, not intuitive.

Reason for choosing Church Windows

Good mix of price and feature. Most economical for our desired set of features from the other program we considered.

Navigating Church Windows for Ease of Use

Overall experience is very good. I would rate it very well. Adequate support makes all the difference in helping to apply a good experience in working with any kind of software uses.

PROS

I like how all of the options and functions are easy to find and navigate through in finding the information and the end result of printing out a report, labels, or directory listing that I am looking for. All of the information is easy to read, find, and use when I am able to print out a listing and read it correctly.

CONS

I did not like how the instructions are somewhat muddled and a little hard to interpret sometimes. The system itself is easy to use, but however the steps in order to understand in how to use the software is not necessarily the easiest to understand. Whenever I have contacted Church Windows phone support they have always been very helpful, but sometimes it gets confusing in order to know how to ask the certain questions to under to achieve the end results for what I am looking for. I am going to explore more so in newest coffee break webinars in order to access the features and function to help me understand the system and help me to navigate around it much better.

Reason for choosing Church Windows

We started looking at other options, but didn't go with another software. More so because of costs, but also the simple fact the church staff would need to relearn a new software. Change is a long process at our congregation, and any new change is not overly exciting. Sometimes change does not work out the best with our staff, and especially if our reports and any records would be printed out very differently, it would be very difficult to be able to accept the end results if we weren't satisfied and we would be going back to Church Windows anyway.

The church Session likes the Income and Expense Statement that they are given each month. Also, reports for individual committees.

PROS

I have used Church Windows at two different churches. Compared to other church software I have used, Church Windows is superior in ease of use, and support. The cost is very affordable. . Support is excellent, especially using e-mail.

CONS

I would like to see more ability to build reports. Sometimes it is frustrating trying to get the information needed.

Reason for choosing Church Windows

Cost. We are a small church with limited resources.
