    We are able to create a lot of accountability among our team members. We are to meet the needs of our growing congregation in a team ministry effort. We are able to employ more people in the daily activities of ministry.

    Pros

    We are able to easily add users who find the process very easy to use and understand. The training time for individual users is very minimal.

    Cons

    Any of those concerns have been fixed. When we have had concerns or suggestions the company corrected or added the features in a short time span.

    The ability to train volunteers in a short amount of time has been incredibly valuable. This time savings is hard to calculate, but certainly a felt win for our team. This company understands churches and our goals, and has created a tailor made product for them.

    Pros

    Breeze takes complicated database nomenclature and structure and presents it in a intuitive and easy to use platform. It is easy to train volunteers on, even "non-tech" individuals. The platform has grown continually in function and ease of use, and all without increasing the price. It blends well with other platforms, the api is available and we have used it in several ways to make our ministry much more efficiant. To name a few, our event sign up through our website, our book keeping through Quickbooks, and several others.

    Cons

    I have had no issues with the software. If there is something that is missing for you, start a conversation with the team and they will HEAR you! Our experience has been that when we bring up functions that we are looking for or a problem we are trying to solve, they have been extremely responsive.

    Breeze is fantastic! I highly recommend it! They generally have good customer service, are inexpensive, easy to use, and they get the job done well! I've worked with several other church management software systems, and Breeze is the best I've encountered!

    Pros

    I love how easy it is to use. It has broad functionality via a simple platform.
    I love how easy it is to contact groups of people via text or e-mail using this platform. It also has the easiest ministry volunteer scheduling feature I've encountered.

    Cons

    It lacks some of the breadth of functionality that some of the more complicated softwares have.

    We have hooked all our thermostats up to the calendar in breeze through the 3rd party extension to heat & cool our buildings more efficiently!

    Pros

    We love the ease of use. All staff feels comfortable running reports... scheduling rooms... accessing data. So different from our last software where 2 people were experts and all others had to go to them for the data they needed.

    Cons

    That the check in system doesn't work from any android device. That printer must be attached to a computer to work. We don't use it for name tags because we don't have computers that could be left in the learning center.

    Breeze's ease of use has re-engaged members of our church who had stopped using needlessly complicated church software solutions we already had in place. Our staff is also very willing to learn Breeze because it works so well.

    Pros

    The simplicity and intuitive design make Breeze the best church software I've used in 30+ years of ministry.

    Cons

    There are a few missing features, e.g., Calendar: request process and Room setup, Forms: multiple people registration on a single form (that tie to each person's personal record). With the help of an outstanding tech support team, we've found good workarounds on most all weaknesses.

    I get the benefit of seeing all members of my church and communicating freely with anyone who opted in to the program. It's incredibly easy to send messages to specific people and groups without having to click each name one at a time.

    Pros

    The ability to have a church directory at my fingertips through the BreezeChMS app is indispensable as my role at church requires me to communicate with many members. I like that I can "tag" groups and send specific messages for only them.

    Cons

    I don't like that I have to sign in to my app every time I open it. A saved password or fingerprint login feature would be a lovely upgrade.

    Game changer! The totally customizable church database has tons of features

    After searching for years for a perfect database, Breeze makes people tracking for our church super easy. I am amazed at all the features built into it. Text messages, bulk emails, sync with mailchimp, totally customize fields, form integration, volunteer management, donations and payments (at a good credit card rate too), event attendance, and more. Seriously a game changes. Before breeze we would have had to have 5 tools to do the same things this one does. Totally worth it!

    Pros

    *Allows bulk text messaging (with mail merge) which is the main way we communicate.
    *Super easy to create custom fields specific to our church's needs - we now can have a contact profile specific to our needs and can easily run reports with the data.
    *It syncs with Mailchimp, which keeps our newsletter list up to date.
    *Tagging feature allows tons of data to be added to different people much like a hashtag.
    *The forms feature allows online forms to sync and update profiles, so if someone moves or changes a phone number, we can set it up to change their profile.
    *Has a volunteer management system built in as well.
    *It is super simple to the simple-user who uses a database like phone book, but robust for database geeks who know the power of tracking loads of data to discover trends and patterns and set up church goals to address those.
    *Very pleasing and visual - the details that overwhelm people are there, but a click away. The most important stuff is front and center.
    *Tracks attendance to events.

    Cons

    I don't have much negative to say, but here are ideas I currently have submitted to the Breeze development team to add/fix (which they do listen to by the way, but in order of priority).

    *While the forms feature is able to be customized and can sync the data with a contact profile. Currently, the tool requires you to manually enter the fields into the form rather than having a drop down. The way it is now, a user has to type in a form field exactly in order to have it sync correctly with a profile field. It takes extra time to set this up.

    *Part of the volunteer management tool allows automatic reminders to be sent. I love this feature, however, Breeze uses their own clip-art graphics. I wish we could custom the graphic to be more about the event or our church branding.

    efficient use of small staff and overworked volunteers.

    Pros

    Where to start?

    * customization for your church membership is super easy. You can add any field and after adding a field you can move to the appropriate area for volunteers to use.
    * support is top-notch. for such a low monthly cost you would think they would cut back on the support. That is not the case as their response wait time is nothing on phone or email support inquires.
    * Monthly SaaS is 1/15th what other ChMS is charging with only 1/4 of the features
    * For a church relying on a small staff or a group of volunteers the ease of using is easy.
    * Implementation was nothing. Uploading was a breeze.
    * Not limitations on the number of records. The church we are supporting has 1500+ members and spouses.
    * Have not used for running end of year statements yet, but from the examples/videos and documentation it looks very painless. If we do have an issue we are not worried as their support staff is very knowledgeable and efficient.

    Cons

    * Breeze does not have its own financial package. They have giving and membership but you need to post into QuickBooks, Quicken, or another program.
    * Have not found if they have work-flows for reaching out to members.

    Previously for managing the church information, I used Excel sheets now it is made very simple by Breeze ChMs. Time is saved.

    Pros

    Tracking information of members and contributions is very easy. Price is very reasonable. This tool is very easy to use. Feature to send mass text messages is good. Managing the church events is simple.

    Cons

    I feel this tool should be more customized. Other than this everything is good. I recommend others to use this tool

    Cons

    Haven't figured out all the functions yet - my own mistake! Also wish more of our congregation members would take advantage of Breeze.

    It's easy to use and navigate. Customer service (the few times I've had to contact them) has always been quick to respond, helpful and kind. It does everything we need it to do at a reasonable price. We aren't paying a ton of money for software that's time-consuming to use and full of features we don't need.

    Cons

    It would be great if Breeze offered a financial software package (Accounts Payable, General Ledger, etc.) that is as easy to use as their church management software.

    Pros

    Really "down to earth" user-friendly software. I am really impressed with how church friendly its use is. I have very little difficulty and any time I contact support I get an automatic notification they received my inquiry and almost before I can think about I am contacted by always knowledgeable support to help me. I have not had to make a phone call because they promptly answer my question(s) via email with sensible and understandable directions. Also, their videos are helpful, which is unusual for videos and "help" online services. I really cannot praise enough this software for what I have used of it thus far, which is quite a bit. If you have needs for electronic giving and it applying correctly to a member's contributions, Breeze works beautifully. If you keep up with pledges and the like, you may have to input some information after you export from any other software, but if you are entering the first time it is extremely proficient. I am so glad I can pick additional categories for a statement, such as "notes". Entering contributions is also a "breeze"

    Cons

    The least thing I like about this software is that I did not know about it sooner. What I have had in the past has been a "pain" in support, help, ability to control statements (unless I paid more for that service). You may think, well their must be something I don't like about the software but I am afraid I have not found anything as of yet.

    This software really gives us the opportunity to make decisions based on actual data we've collected and not just hunches or stories we believe to be true.

    Pros

    Breeze is the first ChMS my volunteers will actually use. I believe they've embraced it because Breeze is so flexible, I was able to somewhat duplicate their paper systems by creating my own fields and tags. Now it is simple to find the information we need and we are making better decisions because of it.

    Cons

    Although Breeze markets itself to small and mid-size churches, it is a robust ChMS and is adding new features all the time. I would love to have more videos that go beyond the basics and really help churches get the most out of the software.
