FlockBase

However, we could not be more pleased with the support given to us as we set up our financial management structure.

Pros

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

Cons

If this feature exists, it should be more obvious to the user.

Response from Flockbase Software


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.

Revised version is a big disappointment

2019-12-07

I will say that every time I have contacted Support they have responded promptly and were very courteous and willing to help.

Pros

The financial report could show monthly and annual actual vs budget on a single report.

Cons

We work offline and I usually print the report, take it home and make the EFTPS payment, then return the reoprt and receipt to the church.

missing some very important features

2020-06-09

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

Also when importing a picture to the directory (used the correct format) it just loaded up an icon & not the picture.

Extremely happy with FlockBase - it was a God send for our church.

2015-11-24

We use it to enter contributions; keep addresses and phone numbers on all of our congregation - members and non-members; enter weekly attendance and print attendance reports; print picture directories; keep contact lists for each of our Deaconesses and Elders; and print out yearly Contribution Statements.

Response from Owen & Walker Software Solutions


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.

Review of FlockBase

2016-06-14

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.

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.

FlockBase works well for the small church

2020-01-29

Pros

It has everything we need: Membership data, Contributions, Register and Payroll plus other functions we don't use.

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.
