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

This software is exactly like V5 with a few awesome upgrades. We love the new report formats that can be ran as well as the charts and graphs that come with them.

SW

Saralyn W.

The customer service representatives are all very nice, courteous, helpful and professional.

KS

Keith S.

For a church our size it helps with keeping track of individuals information. I am not an accountant by trade so I appreciate the user friendliness of this software.

EQ

Emily Q.

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

Having to hit the accept button is frustrating. Sometimes I get interrupted in the office with other issues and lose all my input because the program cuts you off the software.

NA

Nancy A.

I hate that this "world" doesn't connect to the Shelby Membership "world. Having to input demographic information into both is such a time-consuming thing.

LD

Laura D.

I only use this once a month to pull my department reports. It has been a little confusing understanding where I can find what I need.
