Shelby Financials software is a best-of-breed fund accounting program for maintaining church budgets and financial records. This solution includes functionality to manage all accounting processes, including accounts payable (AP) and receivable (AR), reconciliation, payroll, general ledger, fixed assets, amortization and more.
The accounts payable module supports cash, accrual and modified accrual basis, as well as features to track bills, invoices, payments and credits. The accounts receivable module accurately tracks income from multiple sources and how it’s distributed in various funds. Both offer standard and custom reports, including cash requirements, vendor activity and aging analysis reports.
Shelby Financials’ general ledger is FASB 117 compliant and supports multiple funds and departments. Because it integrates with payroll, AP, AR, fixed assets and other modules, multiple entry of data can be eliminated.
The payroll module handles all wage paying and reporting tasks, including gross wage and tax calculations, deductions, check printing, direct deposit and ACH, vacation and sick hour calculations and more. Administrators can also update tax tables as necessary.

It is a basically good software. Better then a lot of the competition, but could still be better.
It does have a lot of features and we are able to financially manage our entire 1500 person church with 50 staff members on it. It integrates well with other software we use.
It is not user friendly. Customer Service can be slow. We occasionally come across glitches in the system that they need to fix.
David from Gulf Coast Financial Associates, Inc.
When i was on staff as a youth minister we worked exclusively with Shelby Software. It was a bit challenging getting everything setup and going but really became an invaluable piece of the job everyday.

This is an anachronistic product with insufficient server capacity and marginally knowledgeable support. The first response is to assume the user is at fault or is incapable. It will provide adequate accounting as long as not too many users are using it. Don't expect much in reporting or analysis.
