Pros

I love the customer support that responds within minutes if not immediately. I love the photo integration, quick searches, filters and tags available, and I LOVE the cost.

MM

Micah M.

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.

MD

Meghan D.

Our whole team is so very grateful for Breeze. Their customer support is FAST and HELPFUL (and very friendly).

HP

Harley P.

Pros

The directory is helpful, and the customer support is good. My favorite part about Realm is the annual conference.

KN

KATIE N.

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.

HN

Heather N.

Realm is simply the best solution available in a market without many well-integrated products available yet. Constant improvement will only make it better.

JS

Jeffrey S.

Cons

I can not think of anything that we dislike about the software.

SG

Stacie G.

I still have trouble navigating the system as they have their own language around organization tools.

JK

Jon K.

We have yet to cancel it because we still need its check-in system for Children’s Ministry.

DE

Daniel E.

Cons

As a former IT/programmer this software is the worst... very frustrating to use... slow.

HN

Heather N.

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.

HN

Heather N.

Sometimes confusing for users when it comes to privacy management and notifications.

Realm

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

Reviewed 4 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...
