Fantastic System at a Great Value

Reviewed a year ago

Very happy with this product. It's integration with Mail Chimp, Stripe, and Quickbooks make it easy to use across all areas.

Pros

Very intuitive and easy to use, customer service is extremely helpful and responsive.

Cons

Since the software was developed for use by churches, there are a couple things that aren't pointed quite as directly at nonprofit use, but for donor and donation management, as well as registration, it works great!

Vendor response

Thank you Kate! We love hearing this! Thank you for being a part of the Breeze Family.

Breeze is a Church Database Game Changer

Reviewed 4 years ago

So far, I absolutely love Breeze! I cannot overstate how much nicer and easier it is to use than our old database. Breeze is intuitive to use, you can easily customize its data fields, sort data easily, etc. and they have really good customer service. Every time I have called, people have been friendly and have worked quickly to get the answers that we needed. During our set up process and with some questions after they, they have responded very quickly. I am very happy that we have made the switch and only regret that we did not do so sooner.

Pros

Breeze is easily customizable and intuitive to use. The previous database we used literally required hours-long training classes to learn how to use. This is not the case with Breeze.

Cons

We are new users to Breeze, so we have not experienced a lot of hiccups yet. The only thing it does not have is a financial accounting piece. You can track pledges and giving with it, which is nice, but you ultimately still need to use something like Quickbooks to manage the money side of things. For us institutionally, that is actually fine.

No protection for our company!

Reviewed a year ago

The customer care we received was just unbelievable. NO PROTECTION FOR THE CHURCH FINANCES. We had a church member who became upset with her relative whom is associated with the church and decided to go back and dispute all of her giving's to the church. Breeze refunded the donor without proper notification and allowing our church to provide documentation showing we had already handle assisted...

Pros

Software was easy to use and convenient.

Cons

It was not the software, it was the fact that there was no protection for us as a customer if or when a donor decide to request a refund. They just paid it and snatched the money out of our weekly holdings.

Vendor response

Hey LaPonda, Kris with the Support team here. I'm sorry that this happened to your church, and these things are never any fun! I did want to help provide clarity here. When a person disputes charges on their card, their bank immediately returns the money to them and in this situation removes it from your Breeze account. This is actually not a Breeze piece, but how the card companies operate. When...

Love it!

Reviewed 4 years ago

We didn't really have a systemized and affordable way to manage our year-round, summer, and winter community membership that empowered involvement, tracked complicated giving, and provided ways to keep information up-to-date. Breeze was the one stop management software we needed!

Pros

Easy interface, up-to-date and instant access to member data, volunteer management, contribution tracking, and online giving. It's worth it's weight in gold for our small parish. I'm a busy clergy person and my parishioners change their info frequently, so this type of management software that is easy to use, is critical to our capacity to keep things afloat. This is the second church I've used it at and will take it with me everywhere, big and small!!!

Cons

Some of the beta versions were clunky and confusing, but the team was always VERY helpful in navigating. The tutorial videos made it easy to implement.

Breeze is a breeze!

Reviewed 5 years ago

We are a small church and decided it was time to come into the 21st century. We researched many options for church management software and narrowed it down to two, based on price and features. The folks at the other site sent several canned messages but never really responded to our questions. The team at Breeze - real people! - touched base, answered every question we had (even the "stupid" ones), and even extended our free trial after a death in the family interfered with our ability to really evaluate the program.

Pros

Easy to use, great customer service, tons of tutorials. If I can't find the answer to a "how to", I send an email and get a reply within a day or two (usually within hours). And having the team at Breeze transfer our data was a huge timesaver and one more thing off my plate. While we're new users, having only been with Breeze a few months, I am very impressed with the program and the customer service.

Cons

Breeze is individual driven, rather than family driven. I find this makes it a little trickier to do some of the things I used to do with my former program. It's a small issue, so far, but I do see it as a drawback.

Breeze CHMS lives up to it's name.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Breeze has been incredible. I recoommend them all the time. They provide an incredible service for a great rate. We were paying more for less before moving to Breeze. Every aspect has been an improvement. The few times we've had a concern, we had a solution within minutes.

Pros

This software is extremely user-friendly. I make the lame joke each time, that it's a breeze when training someone new. It was extremely important for our needs that we find software our volunteers could use with ease. Breeze through its website and mobile app have made our lives much simpler. It's easy to use and train others on how to use. Add in the built-in text and email communication PLUS forms that easily integrate into our website, it's incredible. We've been extremely happy with our decision as a church and love seeing the new updates that continue to come out. It's great knowing that a company is always trying to improve the user experience, listening to its customers, and providing updates, often.

Cons

The only con I have is that I would like to be able to schedule an email or text at a specific time rather than just 'on the hour'. It is small, but it would be great to have that flexibility.

Best for Small Churches or Ministry

Reviewed 2 years ago

We are a large church and used Breeze just for our youth and children's ministry before we moved all of our Church Management to one system. We still use it today for our annual Turkey Basket Collection Drive. We needed a tool that would allow us to collect online registration forms and fee payments and allow us to easily send emails and texts to people in our programs. We also use the check-in features for ministry events.

Pros

Breeze was easy to set-up and get started. It has many features that simplify church management, especially for small churches that don't need a complicated Church Management System. The forms features was what made the tool so great for our use. It allows the collection of data for faith formation registrations, RSVPS, or whatever data we wanted. Forms are easy to set up and customizable. Users complete forms without logging in and the tool tries to match data from the form to people already in the system by linking name, email, or phone numbers. It collected money on the forms and are easy to set-up. Breeze Check-in feature was easy and intuitive to use as well. The unlimited and customizable profile fields allowed us to customize to our specific needs.

Cons

The system is more for small churches or individual ministries of a church. As a large church, we decided to not use Breeze as our main church management system because we were concerned that it might process data to slowly since we are out of range of the normal number of profiles. While it organizes small groups, it does not have an app for people to interact with other group members (which is a feature we want).

Incredibly easy to use. Customizable. We no longer print our church directory but offer database access (limited to parameters that we choose).

Breeze For Churches

Reviewed 4 years ago

Breeze keeps all our information in one place: church directory, giving, managing volunteers, calendar events, and attendance. Plus it works well with our website and facebook groups too.

Pros

Breeze Chms is an absolute easy-to-use church management system for staff and church people. We can track attendance, issue surveys, plan programming, manage volunteers and evenmore. The church people have access so it's also our church directory. I've experienced excellent customer service. There are trouble-shooting pages but if I cannot find my answer, I inquire and receive an answer that same day.

Cons

The only con would be the monthly fee. It adds up over time, but that's the only complaint that I might have.

Breeze Is The Entire Package

Reviewed 2 years ago

This software has EVERYTHING we need, plus some! Everything from data organization to analysis. It's very user-friendly & extremely customizable. It has everything (plus some) that our previous system had & it's less than half the cost. The customer service is top-notch. The response time is within minutes (considering hours of operations.) The capabilities of the program are endless, I'm learning something new every day. But the glory of it is that I don't NEED to know everything there is to know about the system to be able to use the features we use most.

Pros

Its impossible to choose, the texting and email integration is pretty awesome!

Cons

There is nothing I have found. if there is a setting I don't like, it can be changed.

This is a great product for the money

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall, my experience with Breeze has been a Breeze with the exception of the Children's ministry. It was very easy to learn and is easy to use.

Pros

This product helps us take attendance, organize lists, communicate with committees/volunteers, check in to children's ministry with ease. We used to keep multiple databases and this can all be done in one with Breeze.

Cons

When doing rosters for children's ministry and other events, names of parents are not linked to their children. This makes it very difficult to continually update the parents AND children's names in two separate lists. I've had to devise a special mail merge template to make it work. Apparently, this is an issue with a lot of other Church Management systems.

Great System for a Great Price

Reviewed 4 years ago

They are always helpful, well trained and respond quickly. They are also very receptive to changes and suggestions.

Pros

We really love this system. It is great for tracking and communicating. It is such a robust system for the price. When we researched systems, other databases with all these options were considerably more expense. They are always rolling out new updates which shows us how much they care about our input and the work they are doing.

Cons

The email system, forms and reports all work but could use updates to fix some glitches and have more options available. Even with these though, we are very pleased with the system.

Giving and Membership

Reviewed a year ago

When we implemented breeze over 4 years ago, we did so with the sole intent to get a member database. However, the additional features of contribution management as well as the calendar feature has made Breeze an integral tool in our weekly church life.

Pros

The best feature of Breeze is integrating a member directory with tracking contributions. I use the contribution function for every gift we receive and can tie it to a donor who maybe I didn't realize was already in the system. Streamlined my prior process, saving time and effort.

Cons

The app feels outdated compared to the online version. I wish communication was easier than just generating a contact list and exporting that to my mail. The mail feature is difficult to access in the history tab.

Vendor response

Thank you Rebecca!We appreciate the feedback, and we're grateful to hear that Breeze is saving you time!

It's a Breeze!

Reviewed 5 years ago

Breeze seemed to good to be true. But let me tell you it is one of the best decision we've made. The sales people/technicians are so easy to work with and are extremely helpful. Transferring our data from our previous software to Breeze was done so easily and quickly and everything transferred without issues. The multiple calendars are so helpful. The registrations are easy to set up and are very user friendly. Setting up giving was a Breeze. I can not say enough about this software platform. I'm so glad we made the switch.

Pros

I like how easy the software is to use. Everything makes sense and is very user friendly. If I do have a question that I need to reach out to a technician, I usually get a response very quickly.

Cons

Seriously, so far I have not found anything I dislike.

Not the Breeze marketing makes it out to be

Reviewed 2 years ago

Not good. Breeze has great marketing, they make it out to be this great program, that it is not. It is very basic, not a lot of bells and whistles. If you are looking for just a database for your people w/ a directory, it's fine and a good value. It has a few perks to that and a bonus volunteer scheduling system. But there are far better systems out there that help to really run a church well, Breeze...

Pros

Not a fan of Breeze on any level. Nothing I can say I really liked "most" as we just don't like the system.

Cons

Slow!! Even after their recent big upgrades to help with speeds. Keeps changing where things are found. Our congregation did not find it easy to use like they market it to be. Lots of complains about that, things don't make sense where they are located or how they work. Poorly designed, non-customizable app.

Vendor response

Hi Lindsi. We're disappointed to hear that Breeze has not served your church as well as we strive for it to. Our heart is truly to make the world's easiest church management software to serve churches like Heritage Bible Chapel exceptionally well. We're surprised to hear that Breeze is not running faster for you since our server migration. Since the move, Breeze's page load time is now 7x faster than it used to be. We've had a lot of long-time customers write in to say they've never seen Breeze run so fast! Our team would be happy to look and see if there is anything we can do to help. Just reach out to us at support@breezechms.com. We're here to serve you and Heritage Bible Chapel. Blessings!

Very good software

Reviewed a year ago

I have used Breeze for over 7 years and I have seen improvements continually. They are very QUICK to answer your questions and have a system where they can actually make a video for your personal question so that you can see how to proceed. What other software offers this kind of training?

Pros

Keeping up with members contributions is critical to my position. I am very pleased with the system and although another staff person is beginning to make use of this software a little more extensively that what I use it for they are happy with they have seen to date and hope to use it to full capacity in keeping up with membership activities and roles. Fortunately, in the near future they will make it easier for people to access their own name, giving, etc which I am sure will be appreciated by the membership once they gain understanding.

Cons

They had some humps recently concerning on line giving but I am happy to say they have resolved. I do like the on-line giving but found it a little hard to handle at onset. I guess I was unhappy and now I am quite pleased. They keep making improvements and a lot of time what they improve on is because we ask questions and they resolve by changing or updating things. Great customer service.

Vendor response

Thank you so much Glenda! For not just the feedback and encouragement, but also being a part of the Breeze family. We're honored to serve you!

Very Dependable Support

Reviewed 3 years ago

I am still impressed and they keep making improvements, many of which I don't use but one day perhaps the secretary will be trained to use for different records of attendance, etc. I an impressed with their customer service. They can answer questions and guide me by phone, email, etc. I wanted especially to have my quarterly statements reflect pledges for individuals who pay in a previous year for an upcoming pledge. I thought I would have to do those few individuals statements manually because I would enter the current year and it would not show they had paid their pledge. I was pleasantly instructed to just change the fiscal year to include the month they paid and it would show the pledge paid and not confuse for their taxes which year they made their contribution. Worked great!

Pros

This software offers so many things that churches can use. In my case, I use the accounting side of the software which includes not just contributions, but names addresses, membership, phone numbers, mailing labels, etc. There are others parts of the software that I do not use but I am confident function as well as the portion I use. When I have a question or problem, I send an email and get almost instant reply along with some videos that explain how to use or solve a problem I am having.

Cons

At this point the quarterly statements and how much editing allowed is limited. However, I am pleased to say that it has improved since I first began. I wished I could download to WORD or pdf folder.

Breeze - software that makes

Reviewed 2 years ago

Housing contact information in one place makes administration a breeze. Identifying groups of people by using the tags and being able to communicate to those specific people rather than the full membership. Texting has been very useful especially for the youth program. Mail merge makes the email personal which is important but also tends to make people respond. The email template options save time, standard emails can be saved and reused, which gives consistency, people appreciate that.

Pros

The product is easy to use. It integrates with MailChimp and PCO both of which we use. The online and personal help is quick and helpful.(great customer service experience). In the emails I can include links as well as pictures. Love the drag and drop feature for profile fields as well as building forms. The form building is similar to google docs. I have created many surveys & forms and they can be sent as a link or embedded which is great. The submitted surveys & forms can be attached to the specific member profile which is helpful.

Cons

Because of the pandemic we have not been using Breeze to it's fullest. I think there is much more that we will discover as we continue to use it. It has text out but not text in and that would be helpful. I find the email templates a bit frustrating because of the formatting. I often type my note in notepad first and then copy & paste into the breeze email, it saves the hassle of dealing with breeze formatting.

Breeze CMS for a mid-size church

Reviewed a year ago

We love Breeze....and what I especially appreciate is the customer service and the "Breeze University" feature which is so helpful and easy to use. Any time I have a question about how to do something, I can go there and 9/10 time there is a clear explanation and even a video to walk me through the steps. This is a great feature!

Pros

Our church switched from "Church Windows" to Breeze about 2 years ago, and the process was so seamless it was amazing. We use Breeze to handle all of our online giving , volunteer management and of course our church directory. It is user friendly, not overly "tech-y" but very comprehensive.

Cons

I really can't think of any con's...we have had a great experience with Breeze. Being technology, it has been somewhat of a challenge to get our older church members to access the breeze app etc, but that is true of most technology, and certainly not a reflection of a difficulty with Breeze.

Not only for churches, but non-profits too!

Reviewed 5 years ago

We have loved Breeze. Our users love it. I've recommended a handful of other churches and nonprofit organizations to try out Breeze, and the ones who went with Breeze have all loved it.

Pros

Tagging architecture - allows you to organize ALL of your data so quickly and intuitively. I think this is hands down the BEST feature of Breeze. I've demo'd several other competitors, and I think Breeze does this the best. They also do tons of other things (online forms, payment integration, Mailchimp integration, webhooks, calendar events, etc.). Breeze was a game-changer for our organization. We researched several big CRMs, and even though Breeze is much cheaper, it served our needs MUCH better.

Cons

I think the email editor could be improved. We use it daily, and it gets the job done, but for rich-text emailing, should be better.

Breeze is a Blessing!

Reviewed 3 years ago

We are now able to combine many of the features that we were having to use different programs (church management system, online giving system, payment feature/text to pay, Survey Monkey, Signup Genius, etc.) to get the same output with just using Breeze.

Pros

We love the fact that our database and online giving are now one in the same system! There were some hiccups with the conversion but that was due to our old system being inadequate and the data itself being outdated. The system is very easy to use and very user friendly!

Cons

We have found some features that we would like to have in the system or some features that are not quite up to where we would like them to be. However, this is only because Breeze has enable us to encompass so many of our other systems/programs that just did that one thing. Their support team are ALWAYS ready and willing to expand Breeze's capabilities, which we find refreshing and exciting.

Simply Amazing

Reviewed 6 years ago

The ability to train volunteers in a short amount of time has been incredibly valuable. This time savings is hard to calculate, but certainly a felt win for our team. This company understands churches and our goals, and has created a tailor made product for them.

Pros

Breeze takes complicated database nomenclature and structure and presents it in a intuitive and easy to use platform. It is easy to train volunteers on, even "non-tech" individuals. The platform has grown continually in function and ease of use, and all without increasing the price. It blends well with other platforms, the api is available and we have used it in several ways to make our ministry much more efficiant. To name a few, our event sign up through our website, our book keeping through Quickbooks, and several others.

Cons

I have had no issues with the software. If there is something that is missing for you, start a conversation with the team and they will HEAR you! Our experience has been that when we bring up functions that we are looking for or a problem we are trying to solve, they have been extremely responsive.

Why Breeze ChMS works for us.

Reviewed 5 years ago

I feel empowered using Breeze, because it allows for so many ways to keep our membership listings up-to-date and the members themselves can be interactive within the program, too. Our communication with each other is open and often.

Pros

The ease of switching all of our membership information over to Breeze from our previous membership program. All of the tutorials that are available to peruse anytime as well as the quick response to any questions we may have. This software lives up to its name...it is a Breeze to use!

Cons

Have not figured out how to print directly to envelopes yet. Am having some issues with merging a letter. It is not coming out the way I am typing it. So I have a bit of work to do before sending the letters out. Have heard from some members that they do not like the "head of household" and "spouse" choices. So we have just been marking the husbands and wives each as "spouse". this seems to work, the name get listed alphabetically.

Perfect for small churches, a bit cumbersome for large churches

Reviewed 2 months ago

There were a lot of features we liked, but just need a system that could handle a larger-scale operation. If you're a small church with a tight budget, this is a no-brainer.

Pros

Breeze is very easy to use, has an adequate UI, and offers a lot of useful features, and the price for what you get is unbeatable.

Cons

Breeze simply is not designed for large churches, which we are. I believe they advertise this, even. They state for churches of 600 people or less, and considering we had over 10,000 profiles, we just asked too much of this system. It would function perfectly for churches with small congregations, but the load speeds alone were crippling towards the end. I don't really feel like this review is fair to breeze, as , for what it is, especially at the unbeatable price point, it's a very admirable Church Management tool.

Best Software Program for Church Management

Reviewed 9 months ago

Overall Breeze is a great program with a great customer support system. From the initial installation to archiving members records to running reports, Breeze has greatly simplified my job.

Pros

The membership information feature is excellent and can be customized. The attendance feature is also excellent, especially when using barcode tracking for in-person attendance and for remote attendance we use barcodes instead of typing in each person's name. Makes it very simple to keep track of attendance. Reporting and Statistical information is phenomenal. I can run reports on specific groups and have the reports in minutes.

Cons

There have been some changes to the dashboard page and where to make selections for accessing information. For example, it used to be one click to get to the events calendar (which I used frequently), but now I have to use a drop down menu to access the events calendar. It seems like a minor thing but is somewhat annoying to me because I use it so often.
