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

Excellent customer support with good transparency about when they were available to help solve any technical issues.
The best thing about Zealous has been the outstanding customer service. I haven’t always set things up as I should, and they have pre-empted issues by noticing and letting me know.
We are really happy with our choice of using the platform Zealous to host the first edition of the XP Awards. It has been easy to setup and we had a great user experience.

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

This was a little disappointing to receive a warning that we have reached the free trial limit and our account was going to be frozen.
Some bugs within the website. A few applicants complained.
I suggested a warning pop up if a change would impact on current data, and I think this has now been implemented.
