Pros

I've had a very positive experience. The help desk was able to respond to some of my questions pretty quickly, I like the functionality and my emails look good.
Mailchimp is very great software. I like how it's easy to interface, and how you can clean the data.
I like how Mailchimp keeps track of my audience and helps me categorize them for different types of emails. I also like being able to create appealing and interactive emails for my viewers.

Pros

It is a very robust system with Child Check-In, pastoral care, keep track of people in your church, and so much more. They are capable of handling churches of any size, and the cost is very good.
A very comprehensive solution to church management, with flexible pricing, customisable appearance and functions, secure access control, and freedom from software compatibility issues.
They're quick to fix any issues we run into and are happy to hear about ideas for adding new features or improving existing ones. I'm happy to recommend Elvanto any time someone asks.

Cons

I have had instances where the emails sometimes end up in the spam folder or promotions folder, which can be annoying and needs to be figured out.
Mailchimp is used by many which means that spam filters are more likely to tag your emails as spam. I did not have any other problems with Mailchimp.
For a company that's been around as long as Mailchimp has, it's crazy to me how bad the UX/UI is. It's just hard to use so much of the time.

Cons

Missing key features here and there. For example, rostering can be frustrating.
The event registration portal does not work very well for us, it did not track cash payments and we need to re work the report when we print it to update with who had paid by cash.
It's hard to assign people to see just the service locations/times they should, and then it's difficult to schedule in advance unless you're doing it on a separate calendar first.

Integrate It IS Great!

Reviewed 3 years ago

It works great and using things like Stripe or PayPal aren't out of the question with this system.

Pros

We were in the process of streamlining a few platforms and we were happy to see that tithely played so well with others! Using platforms like MailChimp and PushPay were a breeze with Tithe.ly!

Cons

We weren't a huge fan of the overall giving kiosk experience but that may have been just a lack of understanding so we ditched them pretty quickly.

Elvanto Review

Reviewed 6 years ago

Elvanto has been a great system for us. The customer support has been great as we've grown and advanced our systems. Our next phase will be using more of Elvanto's capabilities to improve efficiency - I don't believe we're using many of these functions yet. Looking forward to exploring different pluggins/apps in Elvanto that link to our other platforms and talk to eachother (mailchimp, squarespace, etc).

Tons of features, great customer support, everything you would need in a ChMS at a great price!

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

1. Elvanto has a very intuitive admin interface (similar to Wordpress). It's very easy to navigate and full of features. 2. Elvanto features many integrations with other services, such as Songselect, Proclaim, Mailchimp and Tithely, all of which we use at our church. 3. Elvanto gives you the ability to add endless custom fields for each person. These become useful for generating just about any kind...

Cons

The mobile app could use some more of the admin functionality. Also, without 'conditional logic' (like Gravity Forms or Ninja forms) the Elvanto registration forms can be limiting for certain types of events.

Church management with lots of capabilities

Reviewed 6 years ago

Elvanto is really worth while! Our church has moved away from an operation based on numerous Excel sheets and document versions, and has been using Elvanto for the last two years. Just to know that you are looking at the correct version - be it contact information, group schedules or the detailed plan for the next service - has really helped us a lot! We use Elvanto for - LIFE group organization...

Pros

All basic functionality for church and group management is there. The ability to lock down and manage who sees what of information. Integration with Google calendars.

Cons

The software has world-wide customers and some of the functionality does not make sense everywhere. I had hoped that Elvanto put more effort in making functionality that is flexible and an fully featured API. In this way every church has the ability to ajust the system to their needs.

Best ChMS bar none

Reviewed 6 years ago

I have been a loyal customer with Elvanto since 2014. Before Elvanto I had tried a bunch of other softwares out there but they fell short of what we were trying to accomplish. Some of the more decent ones that we demo-ed like fellowship one and Church Community Builder had tiered pricing that were pretty expensive. When we looked into Elvanto the major things that attracted us were; 1. User friendly...

Pros

1. User friendly interface 2. Robust platform 3. Ridiculously low price 4. Great customer service

Cons

Member page still need more work but they have assured meet they are getting to that after rolling out their wonderful event registration feature they have been working on.
