What is Church Windows?

Church Windows by Computer Helper is a church management software which allows church and other non-profit organizations to manage members and track donations received. Church Windows is offered in two different deployment options; Church Windows desktop edition which is installed on premises and is compatible with Windows-based systems, and Church Windows Web which is a web based solution and can be accessed through the internet from any web browser.

Key benefits of using Church Windows

• Church Windows' Membership module allows recording of individual and family details including address and contact information, with a short member description to connect members through call or email.
• The scheduling feature allows the church to manage events and the resources required for organizing these events with complete information on people who are attending the events and roles and duties of different members involved.
• The donation module allows the recording of donations made by members, and administrators can also view the history of donations and conduct audit trials of accounts.
• The budgeting feature within Church Windows' accounting module allows users to review the preceding year’s budget, fix the current year budget and create next year's budget automatically.
• The solution offers high-end customization for reports and invoices and the church can design their own church logo & graphics and use them to print on reports or letterhead.
• It allows users to choose the deployment option from locally installed on premises or hosted on the web.

Pros
Later, we added the Donation module and this was the greatest asset for the software. First in importance was the accuracy of the entry and the availability of almost instant reports.
I love that this program is very user friendly. Coming from an accounting background I appreciate the similarities.
I would rate it very well. Adequate support makes all the difference in helping to apply a good experience in working with any kind of software uses.
Cons
When trying to correct mistakes or errors it can sometimes be tricky to do. I think this software requires more training than one would expect.
The scheduler program is used by our church, but must be handled separately from all our other calendars due to lack of integration with other programs.
If I were to chose a negative, I suppose it would be the learning curve.

We love this company

Reviewed 6 years ago

Although I am not trained on the Accounting module of Church Windows, the integration of the different areas makes it easy to find needed information. We have been with Church Windows for many years and have had nothing but positive experiences with the company.

Pros

This software has all the pieces of other software but they do not have the superb response of Church Windows. Any problem I have ever had has been answered within 20 minutes with clarity and patience. I especially like the 20-minute on-line workshops. They are interactive, concise and extremely helpful.

Cons

I suppose the thing I like least is that the software does not enter the information automatically when the data is placed on my desk.

A Valuable Tool for Church Administration

Reviewed 5 years ago

Overall, Church Windows has served us well, and we would be unlikely to consider switching to a new church software program. There is untapped functionality for us within the current suite of modules - for example, we have not historically used all the options for tracking attendance and communicating with members. We look forward to making even better use of it as time permits our secretary and volunteers to learn how to use those parts of the program.

Pros

We use Church Windows for accounting, payroll, membership records, and donation tracking, so it is an integral part of our church administration. Because we are careful to enter data accurately and use the suite of software systematically, Church Windows is an excellent way for us to manage information and make timely reports to church leaders. We like having one software package to handle so many...

Cons

Some of the modules seem less user-friendly to us. For example, the Donations module where we record individuals' giving and generate reports for tax purposes is not intuitive to use, and we found it very difficult to set up quarterly and annual statements in the form and format that we desired, when we began using Donations when the software publisher updated an earlier Church Windows module, Contributions....

Church Windows Software

Reviewed 5 years ago

It's great to have all church information in one spot. I do feel limited with what I can do and what i want to do with the program. I am sure it's all training related.

Pros

The basics of the program is laid out nice.

Cons

The software has moved away from it's user friendly-ness a little bit. Some of the report features are confusing and if you don't check the right box or column you don't get what you are looking for. I think they wanted to make reports come from a central area but I find it confusing. Also- you have great videos, which are better than the written instructions, but if you have several issues you...

Using Church Windows you need to study the webinars and wookbooks!

Reviewed 5 years ago

I use Church Windows everyday, because I work for a United Methodist Church and it is required, but I don't have any real complaints. It is a very good database for members, visitors, payroll and running giving statements, etc.

Pros

It is basically a good database that is steadily improving as new abilities are added. Mail merging running list all of this is very easy. Also the Payroll software is easy and complete. A first timer can use it. You put the information in and update your information as needed. Church Windows data can be converted and used in Word, Excel even Outlook so it is very usable. Also I use it in WordPerfect which my pastor prefers.

Cons

You are forced to use the default programs but you can save your own version under a different name. The printing program can be a problem so you have to be careful what computer program with printer that you use.

Strengths & Weaknesses

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

The software was the best designed for church finances and was mostly usable for me when we were using the version that was on our office computers. The company is very responsive when we call with a question. I particularly like the feature that addresses and other information that is updated in the membership module is transferred across the other modules, i.e. accounting, statements, etc.

Cons

Because of security concerns, the New Visions Community decided that we should subscribe to the cloud version of Church Windows. But when we got it set up, I discovered that my screen reader software, (I am blind) could not "read" the material through the citrix or vos portals. Also the query feature for creating reports is difficult to understand and the manual is not updated at the same time that a new version is sent to update the software. It is not easy to teach or do.
