Members/Accounting Review - Inez Experience

Reviewed 7 years ago

Central Baptist Church is very small in membership, FlockBase Members/Accounting has been the perfect software for our church. I was introduce to this software in December, 2015. I have enjoyed learning the program. I've made mistakes, but the support team was always there to get me back on track. Setting up members household was new to me. Setting up members, I was use to. It was interesting...

Pros

It was easy to set-up & learn.

I use the "Membership and Contributions" part. Overall grade for it is A+++ !

Reviewed 8 years ago

Ken Owens has been VERY helpful from the first day I started using this software. What few questions I had at the beginning, Ken was right there. He was extremely patient and prompt and has remained so ever since! The software is well thought out and the User Manual is written so that a new customer can read and understand it at the same time that he's picking up the new words and features. The transition from the old program I was using was almost seamless because of the designers of FlockBase had apparently studied the function of the "Membership and Contributions" position. I would recommend FlockBase without any reservations!

Flockbase membership and accounting software

Reviewed 8 years ago

I have found the software to be very user friendly. I have not had that many questions as the documentation has been very helpful. The times I did need to contact the company I received prompt service and any questions I had were answered correctly. I feel this is a very good system that is low cost for small churches such as mine. I guess the only thing the accounting system doesn't have is accounts payable, but this is not a major problem as we do not have that many bills. I would recommend this software for small churches.

Best Church Membership and Accounting Software for small churches as well as large churches. Reports are so easy for members to read and understand. FlockBase Support is always willing to assist in any way to solve the problem. I have used both software for about three years and love it. Since I am not a computer person, FlockBase is the best and easiest for anyone to use. Very affordable for any church. I would recommend FlockBase Software to any size church.

Great fund-based church software

Reviewed 8 years ago

This accounting software is ideal for churches. It provides for accounting for transactions by fund and department. It accurately calculates payroll taxes and gives reports necessary for 941 and W-2 preparation. Can get reports by fund, department, or account. Bank reconciliation is a snap. Fund accounting at a low price, which is perfect for the majority of churches. Customer support is terrific and an easy-to-read user guide is provided.

Purchased in Sept. 2015 and entered data starting Jan. 2015 from check register.

Reviewed 8 years ago

FlockBase Accounting is very good for our small church record keeping. It is easy to add the data and create accounts, funds and payees with this program. After I created funds above 9, the reports were putting the higher number 11 above number 1-9. Support was very helpful and all I had to do to correct this was to add a zero in front of the 1-9 fund numbers. Support is very quick to respond, when I have e-mailed questions.

Easy to use and super customer service

Reviewed 8 years ago

Have used several other membership and contribution software programs over the past 30 years. Flock base is the best I've used. It was easy to install, and the customer service is first class. Even when we lost one of our computers and had to replace it, re-installing the program was a snap with the help of Ken Owen. I would not hesitate to recommend the program to anyone.

Flockbase is inexpensive, yet does what I needed it to do. I always sent contribution reports to all of these who donated money or goods during the year. Flockbase is also easy to use. I have used it for 5 or 6 years and am completely satisfied. I recommend it wholeheartedly to small to medium sized non-profits. Support is excellent also.

Reviewed 9 years ago

I have no cons about this software. It makes documenting the tithes and offerings easy. It is not complicated at all. I'm not very computer savvy, I find this program easy to navigate. Printing the weekly reports and the end of the year reports is a matter of clicking a few buttons. I highly recommend this software to any church.

FlockBase

Reviewed 4 years ago

We are just beginning our use of FlockBase. However, we could not be more pleased with the support given to us as we set up our financial management structure. No member of our staff has an accounting background; but with the help of [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN], all of our finances are now in perfect order! Our financial workload has been greatly reduced, making our office administrator positively giddy! Perhaps best of all, our governing board is thankful that they now receive financial reports that they can easily understand ... for the first time ... ever!

Pros

The ease with which our staff learned to use the membership, contribution, and financial management modules.

Cons

We have not yet found the capability to print a member directory to give to our members. If this feature exists, it should be more obvious to the user. If it does not yet exist, please consider adding it!

Vendor response

Mark, Thank you for your kind words! Thank you also for your feedback. At this point, our directory is very basic. Upgrading it is on our short list of product updates. To print a member directory, select Membership-->Reports-->Directory. You can then select from a couple of options on formatting. This will produce a basic directory. Again, thank you for your feedback.

missing some very important features

Reviewed 4 years ago

I’m shocked to be treated that way on the support end. I’ve never had that experience with support people. Usually they are kind and patient in professional businesses I’ve used. I found it so insulting due to the fact I was very kind to the FB associate at all times and I just needed help navigating. I was very disappointed and wanted to like FB. But unfortunately have to go through all the trouble & time to continue researching other church management programs.

Pros

The graphics were big and clear. Liked how it all looked at first. Very modern and clean. Large text was nice. The colors looked fun and bright.

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 shown as each individual person instead as a family name in the directory. Associate said that will be changed/added but he had no idea of that time frame.

Revised version is a big disappointment

Reviewed 5 years ago

We loved the old version of Flockbase and are extremely disappointed with the new system. I will say that every time I have contacted Support they have responded promptly and were very courteous and willing to help. Unfortunately, they just don't provide what we need anymore. We take our records to an outside auditor every 3 years and the documents we need simply cannot be printed any longer. We are looking for a better solution. We need help and we need it now.

Pros

I used this software for 4 years and while it had some features that were slightly cumbersome, it was very workable and affordable. The financial report could show monthly and annual actual vs budget on a single report. I could print a membership list and include email addresses and birth dates.

Cons

Flockbase recently re-designed it's software and it is a nightmare to use. The check register reads going up to the top of the screen instead of down. The check numbers are not sequential making bank statement balancing time consuming while hunting for the check you want to clear. I cannot print a check register, instead I have to print a general ledger. I cannot print a 941 report. We work offline...

FlockBase works well for the small church

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

FlockBase was affordable. It has everything we need: Membership data, Contributions, Register and Payroll plus other functions we don't use. We just installed the newest version, FlockBase 2020. I like the way it works. I especially like that you don't have to open FlackBase and FlockBase Accounting separately. Entering and changing dates has been improved. I would say the learning curve for FlockBase is moderate. Customer support is excellent. Response time is very short. They are always positive and encouraging while helping solve a problem. They explain what the problem is and teach you how to solve it. FlockBase helps us keep track of our members and our finances.

Cons

Since we just installed FlockBase 2020, I'm still learning how to use it and haven't found any negative issues. Reports and printing are locked, which can sometimes be frustrating, if you want a different output.

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.

Review of FlockBase

Reviewed 8 years ago

I have had an excellent experience with FlockBase and it's support. When I've had to contact them, they've been very patient with me which is appreciated since I'm not the most computer literate person. I like that they are professional and friendly. (FYI: stars in review above were removed from what I originally selected. My selections were higher)

Pros

It's easy to use.

Cons

If I'm needing to open more than one members info and I'm working alphabetically , upon closing it one, it automatically goes back to the very top of the list and I have to keep scrolling back down to find the next one. I personally prefer it to be at where I left off.

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.

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.

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 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!

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