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

The ease of it functionality and available help when questions needed to be answered simply support service is excellent plus there is so much more services available across the board for our church.
It's ease of running reports and I am super excited about its integration with eventbrite.
Having the ability to equip others to utilize the SK tools definitely supports stronger relationships which in turn supports less money for staffing due to the time saved through equipping others.

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

My only other complaint is the lack of customization on the main, first page.
One of the continual problems I experience while using the contribution manager has not been resolved. So each time I use it, I have the same problem.
There arent a ton of feature that can be done with this software. Reporting is limited, and there's no workflows, automated reporting, member portal, attendance module, etc.

Probably Will Go with Realm

Reviewed 8 years ago

We are comparing PowerChurch, Servant Keeper and Realm. Of the three, Realm is the most robust, organized and simplest to jump right in without a lot of training. We can track records in our Adult Spiritual Education program. We can track visitor outreach. We can track attendance collectively and individually. Gift entry is awesome! You must enter a batch first, meaning the full dollar amount of...

Servant Keeper

Church - nonprofit software, inexpensive, fully comprehensive and EXCELLENT customer service!

Reviewed 5 months ago

I am very pleased with the functionality within Servant Keeper. I must state again, that I have never had better customer service. Not only was the CSR knowledgeable on every question I asked, and may I add, I had very random questions, but all were completely answered, and just ... WOW!!! How nice to deal with a company that appreciates your business even if we are small fries.

Pros

The price is very affordable. The features are much more user-friendly, and vast, compared to the limitations of Realm. The customer service is top-notch! I never received this from Realm.

Cons

The cloud version SK8 seems to have slow connection issues but it could be from my MAC setup. We also have a Windows PC with no issues running multiple screens simultaneously in SK8.
