Pros

I feel more confident that there will be less or no glitches in reprots. The customer service is excellent and the training has been very helpful.
In the best ways possible, I feel like I'm contributing to their success as they endeavor to ensure mine in support of the mission of my congregation.
I feel that the way the software helps with communication is great. I like that I am able to send emails as well as text messages to everyone in the database help with time management.

Pros

Interface was intuitive and features were great and company had the right vision for what they were trying to accomplish.
I also like how easy it is to add new members to the software and the ability to share important information with those on staff. The program is easy to navigate and easy to learn.
I love how Church Community Builder (CCB) helps me, as a youth pastor, get in touch with the parents of the students in my youth group and communicate information to them easily and effectively.

Cons

The layout of the software is terrible, and everyone required multiple trainings on how to do the simplest tasks such as workflows, new entries, and more.
There has been an error with the Elexio Checkscanner utility and print-driver for the Canon CR-50 check scanner that I brought up 16 months ago, and it still has not been fixed.
Still a little trouble navigating the database and doing the things I need to do for my job but learning things all the time.

Cons

One day our man computer died that had the ChMS on it and we were unable to professionally retrieve the data that we had put in it for 20 years.
Probably the most disappointing about CCB is that they offer limited two way integration with merchant providers.
Being a Finance person - I was disappointed at first.

Elexio, 2 years in

Reviewed 4 years ago

I've been using ChMS software since 1996. Elexio is my fourth. I find it refreshing and exciting that Ministry Brands is tackling this niche and reinventing it for today's market. A much needed endeavor that takes both grit and vision! Elexio's product is relevant, professional, dynamic. And still evolving. While we always want our ChMS to do everything we need it to do (yesterday), I've yet to experience a software product that does. Instead, I am inspired by Elexio's demonstrated commitment to keep innovating, rolling out new features, making modifications, and adapting to the needs of their customer base. In the best ways possible, I feel like I'm contributing to their success as they endeavor to ensure mine in support of the mission of my congregation.

Pros

I appreciate that Ministry Brands is committed to offering an outstanding product, which means giving attention to everything big and small behind it: ongoing development to meet user needs, knowledgeable and responsive customer service, user-friendly applications, commitment to two-way communication and sense of team with user-Admins and congregational leaders.

Cons

Conversion from previous ChMS was bumpier than expected.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Stay Away, Elexio has been a nightmare struggle for our church administration and their solutions and moves downgrade what they offer while taking more money.

Pros

Elexio's Legacy system lacked a few things but functioned well, there new system ChMS is a failure, it is the work version of a Church Management System I could think of and causes undo burden on the church making the switch.

Cons

Nothing in the new system is worth it, and they force you out of the existing system, you must change, and it is not an upgrade, it is a downgrade a few levels below where it used to be.

Vendor response

Reviewed 7 years ago

We are a small church (about 200 members) with no full time administrator. We are just large enough to have outgrown our Excel spreadsheet directory and updating that spreadsheet was cumbersome and fell onto the shoulders of one individual. In addition, we had multiple places where we stored information (email service provider, spreadsheet, etc.). We began shopping for ChMS platforms - but so many...

The best thing about church community builder is that it really does build community. From my friends who work there to other church leaders who use it we have found community. It does more than I know and gives us what we need.

Church Community Builder (CCB) is a platform that is jam packed with the tools that your church needs to do a myriad of tasks. It has robust features built in, from tracking Giving Statements to scheduling different volunteer teams, plus so much more. I would highly recommend checking out Church Community Builder!

Not ideal for smaller churches

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

Church Community Builder is web-based. No need for a dedicated server. The organization behind Church Community Builder does really seem to care about the success and growth of your church.

Cons

Very expensive and costs increase exponentially as you grow. Reporting is lacking in the software. Ideally Church Community Builder should integrate with a powerful, yet easy-to-use, report writer software. Does not integrate well with certain label printers.

Church Community Builder Helps Churches Help People

Reviewed 6 years ago

Church Community Builder has improved my church's management of congregational records and information. When handling hundreds of people from first-time guests to volunteers and small groups having a tool that allows the church staff to be informed about and supportive of congregants is of utmost importance. CCB has also helped congregants to "own" their involvement in the life of the church from managing their giving to their volunteer schedules. It's a great tool for church staff and congregation.

Pros

What I like most about Church Community Builder is the level of detail provided as it pertains to database records. If used to its fullest, the user can store a tremendous amount of information about individuals which in turn helps the user support these individuals as members of their church community.

Cons

What do I like least about Church Community Builder? I cannot think of anything that stands out at this time.

A huge help

Reviewed 8 years ago

I love that CCB works at different capacities. I've used it on a very general basis (mostly just as a way to tithe) and in a more comprehensive way (to communicate with groups within the church, find volunteers, and create a profile for myself and family). It works great at any level! To be able to do all of that online is such a big deal these days! Our church has a designated staff person that helps manage CCB and helps others use it - this is great since there are a lot of ways to use CCB that are a little hard to figure out without guidance.

Pros

Easy to connect with church community, tithing online, emailing specific groups, finds volunteers

Cons

Not intuitive

HI Claire, Thank you for your feedback! We would love to set up video call with you to show you ways to use the software so it can become much more intuitive. I will reach out to you today! Have a wonderful week, Pam

The benefits of this product are amazing - online church directory, easily accessible by members (address updates, can add own family members, etc), robust reporting features, etc. We also use the CCB app and have linked up this product to our own church app. Whew - the benefits are tremendous.

The sales people, set up and implementation, and purchasing were super easy. Implementation was also very straightforward and I thought it was really easy to set up.

Pros

What I really love about Church Community Builder is its focus on people first, and making sure that people don't fall through the cracks. I chose Church Community Builder primarily for these reasons: - Robust data reporting - Permission management is A+ - Clear communication channels - Friendly UI & UX for ease of use w/ both internal team and clients - Made so people wouldn’t fall through the cracks

Pros

Church community builder makes it possible To manage ministry teams, schedules, processes and flows, giving and so much more from one platform.

Cons

Church community builders customer support was my least favorite aspect about the software. They have a email support system, So you have to submit a ticket asking the question you have, and they’ll get back to you within 1 to 2 days or so. But this is not beneficial when you are in the middle of working on something for the church, run into a problem and need an answer right away. Even when you upgrade to the highest subscription, I noticed that you don’t really get better support.

Great in theory, not for practice.

Reviewed 6 years ago

It is great for connecting people around a common task, goal and community. But it lacks the driving human element that makes users stay.

Pros

The networking aspect of the service is very intuitive. Once you are connected with a church you can add ministries, tasks, and groups to your account with ease. The service also creates a church wide callender to show you all the eeents and makes note of the ones you are involed in.

Cons

The reason how it is only great in theory is that the user expirience in not very great. It can be confusing to navigate the site and given that there are not many interaction features, it makes using the site a task and less fluid. Because there in not much reason to use the site for interaction it makes user involvemtn decline, which basically break the entire community down.
