Pros
They were all very helpful with the installation of the system. The Cemetery Trust were very keen to upgrade to a electronic system and are very happy with it.
An outstanding feature of Chronicle is its ability manage most funtctions of cemetery business. We are able to use the program to record all data relating to each plot.
Chronicle then sent me a project proposal and quote and I was so excited that not only does the Chronicle team do most of the work the price was very very affordable.
Cons
Getting use to different terminology. I get loss on which page I am on some of it is the terminology and some of it is the layout.
Some of the graves don't show their correct location. We have many burials where the location of the grave is unknown.
Some of the map image has been compromised because of trees hiding the images.

Amazing software that is constantly being improved!

Reviewed 3 months ago

The software is rich with features and intuitive to use, for administrators and groundskeepers alike. Implementation was flawless. Customer support is amazing.

Pros

Customer support and the development team are amazing. They continually upgrade the software and listen to feedback from customers.

Cons

Absolutely nothing. At purchase, it provided a cost effective method to have mapping and data management but has since grown into a very robust software that has retained its low pricing.

The Best For Us

Reviewed 5 months ago

Brilliant. There have been some small issues and we are still getting used to it but the Chronicle team are always helpful, responsive and pro-active.

Pros

Mapping & records management. Cost effective for our business.

Cons

Runs slow at times but likely due to server distance and local bandwidth consumption.

GAR Cemetery Review

Reviewed 7 months ago

Overall, i've had a good experience with chronicle and it allowed me to correct numerous mistakes in grave locations made with MS Excel and MS Access Database. It also has self correcting logic scripts to prevent common mistakes.

Pros

Customer support was excellent and very helpful. The software allows me to find human mistakes that have been made using excel or access database.

Cons

In the country, my internet is kind of slow so I have to wait for the data to load. Also, when taking headstone pictures and uploading, make sure the file is around 500 KB instead of megabytes due to upload times. The larger the file, the slower it takes to load.

Vendor response

A massive thank you for sharing your Chronicle experience—it's like music to our ears! 🎉 We're over the moon to hear how Chronicle has been a game-changer for you, fixing those Excel and Access blunders and keeping things smooth with its self-correcting magic. Happy to see that you rated our customer support a 5 star which is a testament to what we believe in as part of achieving customer satisfaction. We...

Feature-Rich affordable Cemetery Management cloud software

Reviewed 2 years ago

We chose Chronicle because Chronicle had the features we needed at an affordable cost. Many other packages we looked at had great features, but ones our small cemetery wouldn't use. Many of the limitations we first encountered with Chronicle have been addressed in recent releases. Migrating to Chronicle has forced us to go thru a complete audit of all sales and burials, ensuring our paperwork is up to date and accurate.Not only is Chronicle feature rich but the sales team and customer service has been exceptional. Since migrating to Chronicle we have asked for additional plots to be added to our cemetery. This work has been completed in less than a week with no errors. Any questions we ask via e-mail are answered, typically within a day.

Pros

Chronicle allowed us to quickly get up and running. With Chronicle we are able to do basic plot management, but also attach any documents or photos to each plot or burial. The ability for the public (we are still auditing our records so haven't turned on public access permanently yet) to easily search for records and navigate to a specific plot is very valuable. Chronicle also allows us to attach...

Cons

When we first started using Chronicle a little over a year ago a couple small things bothered me. First, we couldn't change the data format ourselves, but an e-mail resolved the issue in less than 12 hours. Second, because Chronicle is an Australian company, the terminology was a bit different from what we used. This took some getting used too. In less than a year, both of these issues have been solved (I didn't log any enhancement requests for these features) by allowing customers to modify date format themselves as well as modify terms like "ROI Holder", "Right of Interment", as well as how we identify Section, Row, Plot.

Vendor response

Hi Kurt, Wow! First of all, thank you very much for taking the time to write a comprehensive review, you are the best! Everything you wrote here aligned with who we are and what we aim for. We want to be the solution for all sizes of cemeteries, we know that smaller cemeteries have very limited choices of software within the budget. We are glad this resonates with you and that you found Chronicle useful. Thank you for using our story feature to add obituary details to each burial, and to notice our feature enhancements! This year our team work very hard to keep adding and improving our software, and we are thrilled that it resulted in a review such as yours. Cheers for a better and better journey in 2023. - Chronicle team
