Pros

Perhaps one of the main reasons I DO love it is that it is one of the only businesses out there staying true to its promises, even as it grows. I trust them and I trust their product.
Our whole team is so very grateful for Breeze. Their customer support is FAST and HELPFUL (and very friendly).
It was built for churches. It also had a great text to give feature and a wonderful event calendar feature that is easily and beautifully embedded on a website.

Pros

Not enoughreviews yet

Cons

I can not think of anything that we dislike about the software.
I still have trouble navigating the system as they have their own language around organization tools.
We have yet to cancel it because we still need its check-in system for Children’s Ministry.

Easy to deploy widely across our church. No limits on the prospects that can be added and tracked. After suffering with ACS for 20 plus years, this is a wonderful breath of fresh air and the cost is the most reasonable we have found.

Pros

Intuitive. Excellent documentation. Provides the resources any church needs to efficeintly keep track of people, their needs and the teams that lead.

Cons

Affordable and easy

Reviewed 4 years ago

I help out at a church in their food pantry and the church is all falling down and needs help. But the people are so upbeat and fun and kind. I was talking with one of the ladies in the office there and she was telling me they don't have anything organized and she really wanted to figure a way to do that. So I told her I would do some research and I found this. I think they would really enjoy it and it would help them a lot in getting more organized.

Pros

I love that this software is so small and easy to use. It is all right there and user friendly for people that aren't computer savvy. You can keep roster of the congregation, volunteers, calendar for events, contributions, donations and givings. It is just what I was looking for to help a church that I attend occasionally.

Cons

This is really great for a small congregation. If you need something for a large congregation, then you may want to keep looking.

A Better Way to Organize

Reviewed 5 years ago

Our previous software was fairly outdated. It lacked the ability to mass text easily, or to delete profiles which meant our system was overrun with profiles we no longer needed. I love the ability to customize exactly what profiles I have on Breeze and what is seen in them. The ability to make certain information private (phone numbers, emails, notes) is also beneficial as we can still maintain that information without it being accessible to everyone. I am continually pleased with Breeze and recommend it to everyone.

Pros

The ease of use is phenomenal. The interface is identical between the app and the desktop version which is extremely helpful for less computer literate users. The way this software groups and searches for information is very intuitive and makes looking for specific information much quicker.

Cons

My only qualm would be the inability to search for multiple people and add them to an email list without creating a separate tag for them.

We use it a lot, and overall, we really like it. It has helped us to stay organized and consistent.

Communication and stats tracking are fantastic.

My mass emails--for the great majority of my congregation--go straight to their spam/junk folder. Breeze has a way for fixing this, but it's quite complicated.

Breeze is a Winner

Reviewed 4 years ago

Easy to learn and use. Excellent product.

Pros

Breeze CHMS offers many features that our congregation uses daily. Everyone's favorite feature is the companion mobile app--a directory at our fingertips. Tags enables us to contact specific groups of people easily. That Breeze increased the maximum number of text messages available per month during this pandemic demonstrates the company's commitment to subscribers.

Cons

While having online giving available through Breeze at no additional cost is awesome, we'd like for the option for donors to cover the processing fees to be available.

Pros

Breeze is well...a breeze! It's simple to use, and can be customized to fit the needs of your congregation. I love the simplicity of creating forms and collecting payment for events. Breeze is consistently adding to their product, and they do a good job of informing you and supporting you. Transition from the previous management system went seamlessly.

Cons

Check-in for events can be slow at times. I believe wireless printing is now available for name tags, but that still seems to be a work in progress.

All positive. I will stay as long as possible with Breeze. Especially now that they have merged with tithe.ly, nothing can beat this package.

Pros

Above all -- their help videos, FAQs, and customer service is top notch! If it can be fixed or added, they will do their best and keep you updated. The platform is easy to learn, has a lot of capabilities, and still they add new features. We've been very happy with this product!

Cons

I am not a big fan with the mobile app. It's not too bad though and for an average user would need it for, it's great. I'm more of a super user and the app isn't really streamlined for me and my needs. I usually end up using my computer.

Scheduling of events is so much easier with Breeze. Creating sign-ups through Breeze for events listed in our newsletter is very easy and it allows us to track who is coming and whether they have paid or not.

Sometimes it is difficult to change the event details once it has been entered on the calendar. But it is nice to have all the events easily accessible on any given day for future scheduling.

It was a bit expensive for our church as we wouldn't at this stage be able to use all of the features that were on offer. It markets itself for small to medium churches but I think it's more of a mid-upper mid for the price. The software itself - awesome from what we saw.
