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.

Pros

We have been very pleased with FlockBase and in July, 2015 we started using FlockBase Accounting which interfaces perfectly with FlockBase.
The more we use the program, the more we appreciate the work, thought, and application for churches in it. Thanks to rep, and his team for blessing the kingdom through their talents that bless us.
Quickly and accurately answered. I give it 5 stars and thank them for putting out a program like this at an affordable price.

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.

Cons

I was finally explained to by an associate, (after purchasing and misrepresenting the features.) the Program only worked as “individual” members & not Family when creating a directory.
It does not give us the reports we once had, there is no step by step guide to tell you if you want to find something you have to look in a completely different module. Confusing beyond belief.
Reports and printing are locked, which can sometimes be frustrating, if you want a different output.

FlockBase is great!

Reviewed 4 years ago

The conversion from our old software, Power Church, to FlockBase was not difficult. The web based version is great. I can work from home or church. It has cut down my processing time in less than half. Financial reports are simple to use and in an easy to read. Our church board is very complementary of the switch!

Pros

This software is very user friendly. It has cut my processing time in half, easily.

Cons

Compared to our old software I have not realized any negatives about FlockBase.

Watha Flockbase Review

Reviewed 4 years ago

Took over church accounting last year using quicken which was a nightmare. It was not designed for church use and was very confusing to use. Switched to Flockbase and the difference was amazing. Spent less than one third of time it took for quicken and balancing was very easy and accurate. It is designed for our church needs

Pros

Ease of use and setup. Very inexpensive for a very small Church. Customer support is very easy and every problem solved quickly by phone or remote software.

Cons

Nothing in this software is difficult .

Small Membership Churches look for Quick Books alternative

Reviewed 4 years ago

We have not yet fully implemented the software, that is, we are still keeping duplicate financial records, but the experience has so far been superior to all other software. Real people answer the phone, real CPA’s respond to accounting questions.

Pros

As a church the two parts of finance that need to integrate 100% are tracking contributions and handling the day to day finances of the church. Most of the churches use Quickbooks or Quicken because they are the two leading accounting packages, and they most resemble the checkbook for non-accounting purposes. Tracking contributions is impossible in Quickbooks, unless you treat each contribution as a pledge. Flockbase easily integrates what was a three step process into a one step basis for a church.

Cons

The only concern I have is in the documentation that is provided for how to use the accounting software. There is an assumption that the people using or setting up the software have an accounting background. Funds accounting is not the simplest method to use, and a more detailed explanation, particularly in the beginning on the “how-to’s” of entering beginning balances etc would be nice. The documentation on the membership module is more explanatory and easy to follow. The best solution is that so far the help desk and the accountant, [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN], who answered my phone call have been right on top of the request for help.

Very good setup

Reviewed a year ago

The support was fantastic. Anytime I had any issues I could call or email and a response was prompt; either by phone or email.

Pros

I really liked the checkbook register which was familiar to me and benefited me as I was learning the other things needed to do church accounting.

Cons

There was nothing I really disliked about Flockbase, we just "grew out of it", I suppose. We had the desktop version and never really transitioned when they went on the cloud as we were using EasyTithe by that time and then moved to Tithe.ly.

Thank you for your review! We're glad you had a great experience with our software, and we wish you all the best as your church continues to grow.

Reviewed 9 years ago

My church has been using this software for sometime. I just started using this April of 2015 and was trained by a person in my church that was not real familiar with the program. After some time and struggle I contacted the support team. After a three hour course with Ken on the support team, I am now familiar with the program and no extra reports will have to be generated outside the reports of the software. The support team are awesome to work with. This program works real well with our church, which is a small congregation. I would recommend this software to anyone.

We certainly appreciate it when a user takes the time to provide a glowing review, but I would like to point out that we do not provide training courses. Ordinarily, a user only has to follow the guidelines in our User Guide for a an easy and successful experience. In this customer's case, her predecessor(s) had not followed the guidelines and had a lot of historical data that needed to be repaired as well as placed on the right track for future use. While we were happy to provide this assistance, it went well beyond normal technical support.

Flockbase Implementation

Reviewed 4 years ago

Our previous system required separate tracking spread sheets for some of our tithing and giving. It also requiredseperate tracking for a balance sheet. This has been solved with the Flockbase system.

Pros

I am not accountant by education. I depended on the Flockbase Customer Service heavily to implement the system for our church. The patience and exceptional help was fantastic. I was able to get the system up and running over a 2 month period.

Cons

The software does not Close a year and start new accounting period for fiscal year. Since you pick the reporting periods I found you have to refer to the beginning balances that happened in the previous fiscal year when reviewing account balances.

This software is easy to use and understand. The user guide gives you a great starting point to input information and keeping track of church information. Our member really like receiving EOY receipts which gives a breakdown of each church outreach they have made contributions to. It's right there for them. Keeping track of new members, baptisms, transfers, for associations or conference meetings has never been easier. My wife gives a report a few times a year and these reports come in handy.

Both of these programs are extremely easy to use. You do need someone familiar with accounting to set it us, but then almost anyone can use. They give you information that all the other "big" programs use, but you don't have to be a CPA to learn it. The staff at Flockbase are very friendly and helpful. They go beyond what normal customer service department. I won't use any other programs - this can be expanded for a large church or a small church like ours.
