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

The custom attributes are a helpful feature and the ability to create your own shareable people lists is also a very good. Web forms are easy to create; Insights feature is a major plus.
Functionality is really good. Access to the data via API is great and getting better with every new API realm.
It's a big commitment up front financially and for all staff to learn the system. Long-term, though, it's a great investment if you need a broad system to manage many congregants.

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

I hate calling support because it's so frustrating. Unless you have someone in your office who understands databases, then don't waste your time and money.
From poor customer service, useless training, horrific report system, sales person persuaded to upgrade to iOS hardware, when their app is still being developed.
Our experience with F1 was very disappointing and we decided to leave. In order to cancel, you must give 60 days notice & pay 30% of each month left in your year, according to the contract.

The most powerful software for managing relationships

Reviewed 9 years ago
Pros

Fellowship One is powerful. It is the best way to manage the complexity of a growing church, community and world.

Cons

Large, powerful and at times a little slow in responding to unique needs but it's worth it.

Makes ministry easier

Reviewed 14 years ago

Fellowship Technologies is a great team to work with and I would highly recommend Fellowship One.

Pros

* Stable, web based product with no server management time * Product shows continual improvement in reliability and user experience * Strong user community support via the Experience website * Great staff support from the Fellowship Tech team * Contacts feature has been invaluable in helping us minister to our growing congregation.

Cons

* Reporting is muddy and takes more time than it should to get the data you are looking for. * Interaction with our website needs improvement. Its kind of clunky and not on par with web services available today. * On the bright side of the cons, there is no doubt to us that Fellowship Tech sees the weaknesses in both of these environments and is making great progress improving them. We are excited about the future!

FellowshipOne

Worst program ever!

Reviewed 3 years ago

We aren't solving any problems with F1. In fact, it's creating problems for those of us who have to work with the program. It was supposed to be wonderful, helping us grow our community of believers, keeping our ministers up to date with the membership, etc., etc., etc. It hasn't helped with anything. Nada. Fellowship One doesn't create fellowship, but it will, however, create stress levels that will have you searching for Xanax. Save yourself the trouble and the expense and get another program.

Pros

The only positive I can say about this software is that I can look up addresses and phone numbers with relative ease. I could do this just as easily with a pictorial directory, and with a lot less headache.

Cons

There's not enough space for me to list my complaints about F1! It is by far the hardest program I've ever had to work with, and after three plus years, I still don't know how to get a decent report. When we signed up for the program, we were told that most churches have a "dedicated" F1 person, but "anybody can learn", right?! Wrong!! Thankfully we have a retired member of the church who understands...

Great product, even better staff!

Reviewed 13 years ago

The team at Fellowship Technologies is top rate. They strive to make sure that each church is focusing on ministry and not on the administration of the product. I love what Fellowship One offers our church. A single centralized place for our church's data, the security of their child check-in system, the ease of online giving, integrated event registration and ease of their new Groups 2.0 online group finder and registration piece is fantastic. Fellowship Technologies continues to improve the their product with new offerings while working at improving their infrastructure, keeping the product strong and ready for future growth.

Pros

- Software as a service (SaaS) is the way to go for us. Our staff has 24/7 access to the data they need. - One central location for our data means no more data silos for us. Everyone has access to up to date information. - Very active user community shares tips and tricks with each other - Great, secure, easy child check-in program - Easy to use online giving - Event registration integrates with our website - Excellent small groups search and registration tool. - Great teaching video library and documentation - Best Practices documentation is very helpful - Ever improving API integration

Cons

The report library can be tough to navigate because there are so many reports to pick from. This can make it tough to find the report you need when you need it. BUT, on the plus side, once you find the report you are looking for you can save it to a personal library and find it again easily. If you can't find the report you are looking for, the customer service team is very knowledgeable, the help information is good, and the online user base is very helpful.
