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 ease with which information can be both entered and accessed. The information that we put into the program, we can get out in great, easily customizable reports.

CE

Christina E.

We've been using Church Helpmate since the 2006 version came out. After reviewing several similar products we decided this program had great functionality and was available at a great price.

TD

Tamera D.

Very user friendly, cost effective, and invaluable tool for our church. I highly recommend Church Helpmate.

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

After two very poor results with other church database programs we decided to make a switch at the end of 2004.

CE

Christina E.

My only negative comment is the inability to transfer the data from households to contacts. It would be great if each input had a box to select that would automatically transfer that information.

BL

Becky L.

This week, I tried printing a report, and I had an error that said "can not print object. I called support, and they don't have a solution except to use a Windows computer.
