Pros

Our overall experience with Realm has been great, we truly enjoy using this product; our senior members love using the Realm app for their giving and enjoy the accounting module.
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.
The directory is helpful, and the customer support is good. My favorite part about Realm is the annual conference.

Pros

This software has been a blessing to my church and it's affordable and most of all it simple and not complicated.
IF I have an issue or can't figure something out customer service is very quick to respond and help. Very good company and very useful for what we do.
I have had a great experience over all with ChurchTrac so far. Had to call Support once and he was so helpful.

Cons

As a former IT/programmer this software is the worst... very frustrating to use... slow.
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.
Sometimes confusing for users when it comes to privacy management and notifications.

Cons

I have to set problem aside and come back to at scheduled time that is available. This can be inconvenient for me.
I have to keep the categories equal 0, which is confusing and incomplete.
Not being able to talk to someone right when I have a problem. They are very quick to get back to emails and if a call is needed they will set up a call also.

ChurchTrac

A Godsend for church management and accounting software!

Reviewed 2 years ago

For the past 5 weeks, we've watched every video made on use of the software and we are already very happy we made this transition to ChurchTrac. The ChurchTrac tech team has been BEYOND HELPFUL, FRIENDLY, HAPPY, JOYFUL and it's very apparent they love their product and love helping us, their customers. The Zoom mtg for getting started was so helpful and at the end of our session, they asked how they could pray for us. That was very unique yet, of course, the mutual purpose we share together.

Pros

The price was our most important element. Beyond that the other attributes, tools, navigation of the software and the components were easy and powerful in helping us make our decision.

Cons

Our church transitioned to ChurchTrac from ACS - Realm where we had a peer-to-peer newsfeed and we don't have that exact feature with ChurchTrac. However, we needed to pull away from that feature anyway.

Vendor response

Thank you for the 5-star review, Patty. We're so glad that ChurchTrac has saved your ministry money. Many churches come for the price, but end up staying for all the features like Mass Texting, Worship Planning, Church App, and more. Be blessed!
