Excellerate overview

Excellerate Church Management Software, a product by Micro System Design, is a cloud based or installed solution that helps in managing daily activities of a church or non-profit organization. The product is used by churches of all sizes across the United States for the purpose of member tracking, visitor tracking, manage small groups and attendance, contributions tracking, mass emailing and check-in.

Member tracking functionality stores all the information related to a member at one place which helps leaders or church administrator to access information such as attendance, interest areas, contributions, counselling etc. in one go. Check-in features offered by the solution allows users to use it in three ways – Express mode, touch screen mode and attendant mode. Express mode requires minimal assistance from any attendant as the parents have to only scan the barcode present on the key tag. Once the barcode is scanned, all the necessary details like attendance, room number, check-in receipt etc. are automatically assigned. In touch screen mode, parents search the name of their family and child on a screen and take a print-out of check-in receipts and badges for their child. In case of attendant mode, a volunteer attendant conducts the entire check-in process.

Excellerate Church Management Software allows users to manage small groups and graphically view the details to identify the attention areas and take corresponding actions. Some of the key clients of solution are The Life Church, Celebration Church, New Light Christian Center and Bethany World Prayer Center.

I would highly recommend Excellerate to any church no matter how large or how small. It's adaptability to meet the specific needs of your congregation is priceless.We have been using Excellerate for many years and it always accomplishes the task at hand. As we have grown to multiple campuses and made changes to better care for our congregation it has done so with us! Its adaptability to meet the specific needs of our church is simply amazing and appreciated. It helps us from A-Z, from scheduling our volunteers, organizing our small groups and classes, to handling our contributions and much more.

Altho I use this only for posting weekly contributions, I absolutely love this product.

Used weekly for less than 6 months

I spend much less time accounting for the weekly offering. AND I know it is accurate. Our church has an offering counting team so that when I (as the financial secretary) get the offering to post, I already have a balance to use for "check" purposes. Great product!!I am currently using only the Contributions tab and the features included in it. We are a small church that needed a better way to account for weekly offerings that was accurate & basically self-checking. Instead of the 20+ minutes spent in the past posting our weekly offering, I now spend all of 5 minutes posting. And I know everything has been posted accurately and to the correct accounts. Thanks for a great product and for your awesome customer service.

Since we have installed the Excellerate system we have reduced the amount of time it takes to count and record our tithes and offerings from 8 - 10 hours to as little as 40 minutes. We continue to find new ways to take advantage of the flexibility and utility of the system. We recently automated our on-line giving to load directly into the Excellerate system saving even more time. The support has been excellent. The Excellerate team will do everything they can to ensure that your needs are met. I reviewed many systems before selecting Excellerate and without a doubt I made the right choice.

I would recommend Excellerate to anyone. Whether you have a church of 60 or 6000, you can use Excellerate. Excellerate has helped us out immensely as a church. We are able to keep track of attendance for class, connect groups, and people serving weekly. Pete and the team are always finding new ways to update the program and are always there to help you out.
