Pros

The directory is helpful, and the customer support is good. My favorite part about Realm is the annual conference.

KN

KATIE N.

Probably the best part might be the database end. It's pretty good at keeping all the information for our people, and creates a nice directory.

HN

Heather N.

Realm is simply the best solution available in a market without many well-integrated products available yet. Constant improvement will only make it better.

JS

Jeffrey S.

Pros

The Fund Accounting is most helpful for the churches I help. The monthly reports are great to send to my clients so they can see where their money goes and how much they take in.

BK

Bonelle K.

I was so confused, and he was SO PATIENT. I love being connected to great customer service and overall great people.

LT

Leia T.

Better than most I've seen and I think it is in most part due to the ability to talk through the needs with Aplos support and get the help on what functionality meets those needs.

RP

Robin P.

Cons

As a former IT/programmer this software is the worst... very frustrating to use... slow.

HN

Heather N.

I am constantly calling Realm to see if there is a solution to one problem or another, and every time I am basically told "we don't do that" and "we have no plans to do that.

HN

Heather N.

Sometimes confusing for users when it comes to privacy management and notifications.

AS

Amjad S.

Cons

Third, I get lots of complaints from customers about the transaction errors which make it hard to give.

SN

Sherry N.

The Check In system, for us, was not working too well. Research was done and the application was tweaked to service us.

CD

Cheryl D.

I am unhappy that I cannot find a Vendor to do a new A/P Entry. Instead have to scroll thru pages to find the one I'm looking for, a simple search would suffice.
