This product saved the church family money. It is easier to use than the prior software.

2018-03-07

Time saving, church finance organization/standardization, tracking of member giving for end of year statements.

Pros

It has a nice import feature that allows importing of credit card statements.

Cons

It's not a deal killer, but when edit checkbook entries, the list resets to the end, which means you have scroll back up to the area where you were working.

We couldn't be more pleased than we are with ChurchTrac. Easy to use. Best customer service EVER.

2018-03-08

A reliable record of everything from attendance to giving, to membership, to budget - it does all we need!

Pros

Being able to quickly and efficiently record attendance and giving is a godsend!

Cons

I wish the photos were larger on the reports; in fact, I wish it were easier to build reports tailored to our specific needs.

Powerful. Easy. Intuitive. Supportive for the small church.

2018-02-08

The ability to grow the church plant and keep track of all the people we reach is phenomenal.

Pros

The connection of the giving, accounting, people, activities all woven together make it perform like a full featured software.

Cons

Suggest a rework of the normalization field for the base database. You cannot enter more than one person with the same name.

Thus far it has been great.

2018-03-13

The ability to use or access from different computers speeds up the time to complete admin duties within the same office areas.

Pros

Ease of use and access to reports. the various type of reports available such as Sunday school or group attendance sheets.

Cons

The basic size of the font appears to be based upon the number of personnel in the data base that could appear on the report.

Barb Dijker

Easy to use, affordable, and straight-forward

2017-05-28

We moved our giving records from Microsoft Access to Churchtrac online which provided easy access to remote users and online access for parishioners.

Pros

Churchtrac provides a simple interface that is similar to how we are accustomed to working.

Cons

There are few features and reports for giving history and trends, but information can be readily exported. We only use the giving functionality, not the general ledger.

Great church management software.

2018-04-19

Pros

We just started using the congregational access feature and love it!

Cons

While overall Churchtrac is easy to use, there are some features that we have found to be a little difficult to navigate, but that is in part because we haven't spent much time using those features.

Our bishop suggested ChurchTrac for us as a new parish in the diocese.

2017-10-24

Pros

We are still in the process of learning all that the program can do.

Cons

The inability to customize the accounting reports is frustrating. The data can be downloaded into a spreadsheet, but that requires much more work to make presentable.

Alice Clausing

We have used ChurchTrac Online for a year to record church offerings and generate reports

2018-01-12

Easy tracking and reports for a low price

Pros

Everyone likes it, even people who aren't comfortable with new software. Reports generate very quickly.

Cons

A couple of minor glitches in the user interface: 1) sometimes a pulldown menu selection doesn't "take" and you have to select again; 2) occasionally the software hangs while waiting for response from the server, so you have to re-enter a donation.

Great church database software for any price, plus the price is quite affordable!

2017-08-22

My church is better organized and has saved money in the process.

Pros

It offers good solutions for varied needs-- not only membership and attendance tracking but also giving statements and even basic accounting and calendar.

Cons

It still lacks basic features such as robust attendance analysis or even having a way to view a member's attendance history for that matter.

Best Church Management Software Ever

It has integrated into our daily operations regarding visitors, outreach, member attendance, giving, etc.

Pros

It's easy to use, is great to keep track of attendance, visitors, outreach efforts, giving, etc.

Cons

It can be a little confusing to get the app on the device using the current method, but I figured it out, and I like having access to all features on my phone.

I was able to figure out problems on my own.

2018-04-03

It was much cheaper than the last management system that we had.

Pros

We've had some that are on our finance committee that are afraid of computers that have been able to been able to use the program.

Cons

I had a problem in how much money to send and I wasn't sure if I needed to mail or use a credit card. We don't have a credit card so I didn't know what to do.

I am a small church pastor (average attendance 41). ChurchTrac provide rich resources at low cost.

2018-05-24

Pros

I have used (and sold) competitive church management software.

Cons

I find reporting for our United Methodist Congregation to be somewhat tedious and a family directory, predefined with individual emails and phones is pretty much a necessity for most of the congregations I have done consulting with.

I spent that day navigating around the software playing with the reports, groups, attendance and accounting section.

Pros

User-friendly interface and accessibility.

Cons

Not sure the best way to explain this con but sometimes a button or feature is available in one area but not in another area.

Essential for Small Churches

2017-01-05

We've been using ChurchTracOnline for over 3 years now and have been continually surprised with how quickly new features are launched, the responsiveness of their support team, the overall ease of use, and the comparatively low cost for what they offer. Starting out as a new church plant, we have grown alongside them and hope to continue to do so for many years to come.

Pros

Tracking of giving, integration with Stripe, online access, low cost.
