Pros

Interface was intuitive and features were great and company had the right vision for what they were trying to accomplish.
I also like how easy it is to add new members to the software and the ability to share important information with those on staff. The program is easy to navigate and easy to learn.
Well build subscription software that amazes me the its capability and continuous improvement. We had done an extensive search for church management software and CCB was a clear winner.

Pros

If you want to build an app and you don't know how to code, then Subsplash has a really great solution for you. They have lots of great features that you can build into an app.
Overall, I'm glad that we switched over to Subsplash. Their customer support is fantastic and they have been very responsive.
The benefits outweigh any negatives with Subsplash, I think it is a great product for those who need it and it can help streamline your group connectivity, participation, giving/fundraising, etc.

Cons

One day our man computer died that had the ChMS on it and we were unable to professionally retrieve the data that we had put in it for 20 years.
Probably the most disappointing about CCB is that they offer limited two way integration with merchant providers.
Being a Finance person - I was disappointed at first.

Cons

We were given false information up front and it has been difficult getting our contract cancelled and we are still trying to get a refund of the money we put down.
I don't know that all churches can afford such a costly system.
In fact, it doesn't even have all the contributions made up to 2+ weeks prior. So, again, there is a lag issue.

ChMS

We Left

Reviewed 2 years ago

It met our needs for a while but we became disappointed after several years and have recently moved to Planning Center.

Pros

CCB was the first ChMS we used as a new church start-up 13 years ago. It met our needs. Check-in was essential as well as online contributions.

Cons

Over time we became disappointed by the slow progress in rolling out product improvements. Service planning / scheduling in CCB was inadequate so we used Planning Center. There was no integrated mobile app so we used Subsplash. Process queues and reporting was very cumbersome to use. The merger with Push Pay was the catalyst for us to look at alternatives due to our negative experience with Push Pay when search for a mobile app solution.

Horrible. Customer Service is awful and they are unwilling to work with you. Basically a scam for churches.

Pros

Never even used it. They took forever to set it up so by the time we got to use it and realize we don't like it, it was too late to cancel. They are scamming churches.

Cons

We have had church community builder for almost 2 years. Part of that was the setup time, then we launched... We hated it. It was challenging to use and didn't work for our church. I tried to reach out and figure out what we could do to fix it. They never respond! I have been trying to cancel my services for over a year. As soon as someone responds, they find out what's going on and stop responding. We have never used the software at our church, other than the giving, and we don't want to. I have never had worse customer service in my life. If you are thinking about using this company, don't. Use Breeze or Subsplash or literally anyone else.

Great custom branded local App

Reviewed 4 months ago

Great external communication and mobile app platform, but became too expensive and time consuming to manage it along with the rest of our data.

Pros

You can easily set up a mobile app that has great media management and push notification options.

Cons

User info can’t be linked to any external database (i.e. giving, account info, user notes, etc), so you have to run everything through them (which currently is not robust enough of a ChMS).
