Breeze overview

What is Breeze?

Breeze is a web-based church management software designed to be simple enough for all staff and volunteers at small and mid-sized churches to use.

Breeze enables users to manage donations, by tracking amounts and donors, generating contribution reports, and sending giving statements to donors at the end of the year. Users can receive donations both online and through mobile giving, and have these directed into different funds based on the purpose of the donation, such as local missions or international relief funds.

Users can assign tags to individuals, and use these to create groups, add members to events, communicate with specific sets of members, and more. Breeze offers users the option to add custom fields to profiles, and can store an unlimited amount of information for each individual, who can then be searched using any number of criteria. User access restrictions allow administrators to set specific permissions for individual accounts or groups, preventing specific information from being shared with everyone.

Breeze allows users to schedule events, create online event registration forms, print attendee lists and name tags, take attendance at the event itself, generate reports on where attendees have come from, and more.

We are able to track our members and visitors with ease. The calendar feature allows us to track attendance, volunteers, and works well with our website, and other media. The online giving has made data entry so much easier! I highly recommend this product. I worked with another company for over 10 years, and thought they were the best. Breeze changed my mind. They by far have been the best solution for our church software needs.

Pros
The software is easy to use for both staff, and church members. It has features that allow us to work with other software programs we already use. The online giving portion is my favorite! It was an easy transition from our old church software and from our online giving software. The support team has helped me figure out creative ways to use the software, and they always respond quickly to my requests.

Cons
I wish it had church financials built in.

Overall I have found Breeze ChMS to be a valuable resource for our church and well worth the monthly fee. I would highly recommend trying it if you are at all curious. The support is very good, which helps with the learning curve.

Pros
It's great for tracking attendance, kids min sign in and sign out. It functions as a church directory for us, but is a little clunky for that. Once set up this software service works really well for a small to medium sized church. We haven't used the giving section of the service, but it looks really solid. Overall this is a really good solution for a church that wants to track attendance, giving and some communication aspects.

Cons
It was a bit of work to get set up and understand, but their customer support is excellent and they are very willing to help you. I have found it difficult to access the data I want at times, such as clarifying who was at what events/gatherings. It's not a straightforward or simple process to access information, such as who was at a certain event, and takes several steps and even then isn't clear if it's the actual information I'm looking for. In other words, it's not always user friendly.

Breeze ChMS can't be beat - Especially for small churches

Overall, it was a relatively easy transition from Shelby V5. My ministry assistant has become somewhat of a Breeze guru.

Pros
The price is unbelievable. Breeze may not have all the features of the big dogs, but it can hold its own with the key features that small churches will need.

Cons
It does have it's feature limitations, so we often submit feature requests, and they are very responsive, but must prioritize the requests that come in to them. And our don't always get addressed promptly.

EXCELLENT. I recommend Breeze to everyone I can - they are super competent and super helpful, a GREAT combination in information technology.

Pros
Super intuitive, organized, easy to use for reporting & communicating, always improving, and GREAT customer service. When I have a question about how to do something, I get an answer within the hour - not within the week. And on those rare occasions when they don't currently have a tool I need, they send me a link to request a feature. Great company, I can't wait for them to roll out their next component!

Cons
I wish Breeze had an accounting platform that could replace my QuickBooks. Breeze understands the needs of churches and non-profits, so I appreciate their take on managing our information.

Benefits

Breeze allows users to track donations, generate contribution reports, and send out end-of-year giving statements to donors.

Users can create groups by assigning tags to people, and use these tags for group communication, adding members to events, and to group volunteers, event attendees, and more.

Breeze can store an unlimited amount of information on individuals, with the option to add custom fields to profile pages, and users can search for individuals or groups matching any number of criteria.

Users can schedule events, create registration forms, print name tags for attendees, take attendance, generate reports on attendee demographics, and more.

Breeze automatically alerts users if regular donors stop giving, or if individuals or groups stop attending events for multiple weeks at a time.
