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

Our overall experience with Realm has been great, we truly enjoy using this product; our senior members love using the Realm app for their giving and enjoy the accounting module.
Probably the best part might be the database end. It's pretty good at keeping all the information for our people, and creates a nice directory.
The directory is helpful, and the customer support is good. My favorite part about Realm is the annual conference.

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.

Cons

As a former IT/programmer this software is the worst... very frustrating to use... slow.
I am constantly calling Realm to see if there is a solution to one problem or another, and every time I am basically told "we don't do that" and "we have no plans to do that.
Sometimes confusing for users when it comes to privacy management and notifications.

Amazing & Easy Software to Use for Church Finance Management!

Reviewed 7 months ago
Pros

We switched over to Breeze from Realm and it's been such a easy process to keep track of our church's finances and accounting. Will definitely recommend for others to use if they're looking for something easy and simple!

Cons

There isn't really anything that we can complain about, Breeze has been a BREEZE (pun intended)!

Pretty Great System

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

We appreciate the integration with online giving and book keeping. This system makes donor management quite simple and end of year giving receipts are a breeze.

Cons

The administration is a little clunky, difficult to negotiate different groups. While it has huge potential, getting things off the ground can be a intimidating.

Realm, it's all you need!

Reviewed a year ago

Keeping track of our members and finances in one place, anytime and where is a blessing. Realm allows us to stay connected and during this pandemic we have realized how valuable this software is. I use this product everyday, to enter information or just to make a phone call to a member through the app and most of all to check the news feed and comments from our members. So in short a great feature has been checking in our members for Sunday Service to contact trace has been a breeze.

Pros

This software is so useful no matter where you are, in the office, at home or even on vacation. Staying connected is a breeze getting work done or just to keep up with the church news feed, checking the events calendar and so much more. As a leader running reports and entering information can be done from anywhere. I highly recommend Realm.

Cons

We transferred from ACS OnDemand to Realm and it's been only an improvement. I have not started using the Serving feature just different groups. All are needs are accomplished so far. So I honestly can say I don't have any dislikes except one report we ran in OnDemand is not the same in Realm (Account Inquiry Detail (Filtered).

Realm

Tremendous organizational tool! A bit lacking in some desired features and user-friendliness.

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Realm has been our only experience with CHMS and it has been well worth every penny. As a small church of about 200, we know there's so much more that this software is capable of doing that we simply do not have a need for at present. We love the organization Realm has given internally to our church staff and volunteers. The ability to track giving (both regular offering and pledge funds) through...

Cons

The calendar is not as functional as we had hoped and does not allow for integration with Google Calendars. This has led to our avoiding any use of Realm's calendar. We have also not made use of the Events feature in Realm as there is no public-facing side of Events Registration (that we have found) that could tie in with our church website. The interface is not very intuitive/user-friendly and...
