    This app easily connects us to our congregation. Push notifications, uploading documents, sermon notes, etc. NO PROBLEM!! We find that many people use the app more than our website.

    Pros

    Once you set up your church branded app, it is EASY to make changes. Their customer service and help is user friendly! We have implemented this system - and as a user and administrator, this product fulfils a specific need for us.

    Cons

    Sometimes Android users find this app cumbersome. It is set up more for Apple/IOS users. For example, Android users have to manually clear notifications.

    Easy to navigate through the site. Gives us insights and a dashboard with statistics on usage and giving through their platform. Easily integrates with our CHMS.

    Cons

    Cannot use our own merchant processor, and must use theirs for card processing. We could save money if we were able to switch.

    The ability to have an app for our church which was so easy to set up and manage is such a blessing.

    Pros

    It is super easy. I am not a web or app designer. Their interface is easy to understand for even a novice like me. And can I just say CUSTOMER SUPPORT!! They were so quick to return my inquiry each time I have contacted them. Turns out I really didn't even need them because as soon as I asked the question, I saw the answer.

    Cons

    The one draw back about this software is...hold on...I'm thinking...still thinking. I give up. I got nothin'!

    Easily see online giving and we've received a wonderful app for our church to use as well!

    Pros

    Aware3 makes it easy to see our weekly online giving and they don't make you jump through any hoops to get to the data. I love the app that Aware3 provides along with the membership as well and the customer service has been phenomenal!

    Cons

    The only con Aware3 is that we are charged if our church doesn't bring in enough money, it's understandable though.

    I like how easy it is to customize the software to our context and brand. We are so extremely particular about how we want all of our events, ministries, flyers, invites, and any sort of communication to feel and aware 3 let us create something that was just for us.

    Cons

    The software is really great overall! Sometimes it is slow and I wish we could see some better analytics from the usage of the app, but other than that it is amazing!

    Good, informative, keeps congregation connected. Increases the relational aspect of our church. The flexibility and options make it easy to communicate all the activities at the church on a daily, weekly and monthly basis.

    Cons

    Giving area. Does not provide an easy way to update recurring giving schedules for amount and frequency and payment method. Must cancel current schedule and start from scratch.

    The freedom it gives us to let our congregation use for notetaking and giving is the most essential part of our use.

    Cons

    It's not particularly easy to manage behind the scenes. Reformatting seems daunting, and its extra features are cumbersome to efficiently maximize.

    We extensively researched other software and decided on Aware3. We have been pleased with ease of the change over to Aware3, the ease of use and how its compatible with our other software.

    Cons

    When we did our extensive research we found other products that were less expensive. We selected Aware3
    because we felt it was a better product for our usage. Other than price we have no issues with the product currently.

    Pros

    The App was easy to setup and the content management system was a great platform to push out our media content to our congregation. The dashboard is a great tool to show basic usage stats as well as online giving totals. Giving reports show details and integrates with our church managment system (CCB).

    Cons

    We've had few issues with matching online giving with CCB profiles, but support at Aware3 has always been helpful.

    Pros

    The customer service is top notch. I had an issue with images not displaying correctly in some of the subcategories, so I spoke with customer service and in a little over a week they issued an update that solved the problem. An update based on the concerns of one client...amazing!

    Cons

    When used in conjunction with Quick Connect (church software), the profiles that are put in are not saved, but that is most likely a software error.

    Makes it easier for members to have an accounting of what they give.

    Pros

    Easy accessibility. User friendly, not hard to figure out how to use. I can get the information I need regarding giving very quickly. All the information is easily stored where I can access it.

    Cons

    I had to call or have members alert me about issues they were having logging into the portal. I would have liked to have received an error message if someone was trying to set up a recurring gift and was having difficulty doing that so I could help or at least tell them who to contact to get help. I would like to have more options to filter data other than those listed.

    The ability to connect and offer this connection to our family of believers!

    Pros

    I like the ease of use for me. I really like the simple way it is streamlined for someone of my limited electronic skills to be able to function and accomplish the tasks I am expecting to complete. We really love it for our online giving and it tracks very well for our accounting department.

    Cons

    I think my least favorite function aspect is my inability to access a help or instruction button when learning how to use it.

    Hi Seth! Glad to hear the CCB integration is working well for your church. Check out our Design Page for examples of how some of our partners have designed their app. Feel free to take a peek at our Feature Images Library in our helpdesk if you want to use some of our images to swap out your feature icons!
