Very good tool

Affordable database management - organized several needs in one place (including attendance reports, online giving statements, check-in, mass contact, etc.)

Pros

Simplicity in data management for churches. This software is so easy to learn and use. Access to the information and tools via web browser or phone app is also simple and convenient.

Cons

Their options for how to use the database are limited. From time to time, we want to run a certain type of report or create a directory, but we can't do exactly what we want. Most of the time, it is close enough to be satisfied.

SimpleChurchCRM is Simple!

Amazingly satisfying.

Pros

Simple Church is just that; simple. The ease of learning the software, importing from old software, using the software....It is all clean, easy and performs exactly how we need it too. Customer support at SimpleChurch is also amazing. Whether it is a phone call, an email, or by using one of the many video tutorials, SimpleChurch is readily available to help however they can.

Cons

We have just begun looking at using the app feature. We are not too impressed that we cannot tweak the app to make it look like us, and hope that SimpleChurch changes those capabilities soon.

Reasons for Choosing SimpleChurch CRM

The simplicity and the ease of transferring information from one format to another.

Thank you for your review, Debra! We are thrilled you love our product! Are you using the Ministry One app? We are continuing to tweak functionality so you may be able to customize it more in the coming days.

Review requested by SimpleChurchCRM 4/2020

I honestly don't see any massive changes or business issues solved. It is asking for essentially the same information as with our former software, but more can be entered.

Pros

It is pretty easy to use. It is much like our former software but more up to date in terms of technology. Creating a directory is much nicer than our former software, once I can determine how I want it listed. Statements are quite simple to create, again in comparison to the former system. There are several options we don't use based on the size of the church, but what we do use is user friendly.

Cons

1. Having to reenter the person's name when doing the contribution breakdown each week. If they have say 4 different funds they contribute to, I need to make sure I have the correct name and the correct fund. We are a small church so this isn't a massive problem, more of an irritant. 2. The "More" button on the contribution side in order to add comments. It flashes on and off when you are trying to click on it. You think you have it for the one person and it has moved down to an empty spot. It gets in the way when trying to enter the dollar amount and opens up the comments section. Thought: create a "more" button, click on that and it opens up the comments spot instead of "chasing" the "more" button as it currently is. 3. Statements, directories, are more masculine oriented. Can't print up Mr and Mrs Jones on statements for example, it is one or the other.

Better than Nothing

For the most part it is a good software. It will work for now.

Pros

(1) Having member information at our fingertips. (2) Combined Giving Portal that automatically populates with our members giving records. (3) Attendance records (when they work)

Cons

(1) Many times devices can't access member information. Random members will populate but not the ones we are searching for. (2) Different devices reflect different data (example: I show attendance 100 and the person standing next to me shows on 82). And yes, each of us have logged out and logged back in... nothing changes except sometimes it is worse after logging back in. (3) The Giving portal is not user friendly for the *business side. It is a waste of time and troublesome to contact each giver when they select OTHER as a giving category. All because SC will not allow there to be a fill in the blank feature when selecting OTHER. (4) Not to mention the lack of communication on the Giving Portal reports. If SC is going to take back money, it should be reflected on a report. Instead I have to submit a Support Ticket to find out why the reports don't balance with the money actually deposited. That is basic reporting-show everything. (5) Many times reports are missing. We can't close out the month on the finance side because we don't know where to apply the monies given.

Easy to navigate / GREAT Customer Service

Smooth and as problem-free as humanly possible.

Pros

Right from the start - exporting data from our old system into Simple Church was made easy by the support staff. Customer Service is phenomenal! They made the set-up process a breeze and continue to give A+ customer service each time any of our staff have ever called. The program is easy to navigate and use daily. Even the phone app is great and makes life easier for our Care Pastor and team who are out in the field visiting sick members. Their address links to Google Maps which makes it a breeze to find their homes.

Cons

The only part I'm not 100% satisfied with are some of the reports available. Our denomination requires specific reporting and I have had to get creative in way to pull out the information that is required. Customer Service is THE BEST and they help me find ways to get what I need. However, if Simple Church discovers that other customers are having the same issues, they will make programming changes to make that report or service available in the future.

Reasons for Choosing SimpleChurch CRM

We checked out many other options (I can't remember all the specific names) but after talking with other churches using those other software companies, SC had the best personal reviews. Simple Church had the best ratings and after talking with a few of their churches currently using it, we chose them. So very glad we did!
