Product is priced right for those churches who are mindful of getting the best for your buck. Support staff is always friendly, knowledgeable and williing to help.

Roll Call Robust Feature Set

Reviewed 12 years ago

Roll Call is a robust software package with strong sales and technical support. The ability to use a check reader makes this software very attractive. Set-up is straightforward but will take some study. Data can be exported for manipulation in other software, but to do so will take some higher level skill. Financial summary data can be written to disk for import by some accounting software packages. As a stand-alone or networked database, Roll Call is an excellent affordable product that is worthy of consideration for either Windows or Macintosh platforms.

Pros

The database structure is well done with a predictable interface. Most impressive is the financial input and tracking. We are implementing using a check reader. This has greatly improved accuracy and has cut the time in half we used to spend counting weekly offerings. Having the check reader alone tips the usability and should be a standard purchase for all Roll Call users. With only a little work,...

Cons

Like any relational database, users should be familiar with database functions. This is not a simple spreadsheet list but rather a robust multi-function package that requires some study. However, training materials and support are quite good. Most functions are straightforward, but some require reading the manual for proper implementation. Assigning security levels to various users is a little difficult to understand - the documentation for this part of the program could be better. This is not a web-based solution for those wishing to give partial database access to congregation members.

Grateful New User

Reviewed 6 years ago

After serving as church treasurer for 16 years, I decided I needed a break from the weekly (daily) attention. After 6 months of no hassles, I somehow found myself as financial secretary. Piece of cake, right? After a considerable amount of time looking for just the right software, I decided on By The Book's Roll Call. We are a relatively small church (150-200 regular weekly attendance), and don't...

Perfect option for those coming from Fellowship One

Reviewed 9 years ago

Our church was originally a long-time customer of Connection Power (now owned by Fellowship One). CP was always a convoluted mess to me, difficult and complicated to use. When Fellowship One purchased CP and dramatically increased the monthly pricing, it was a great excuse to jump ship. We hadn't searched too long before we settled on Roll Call. It was the obvious choice for our budget. Our...

I think it is the best church software package available for its price range.

Reviewed 14 years ago

I think it is the best church software package available for its price range.

Pros

ROLLCALL is a great product for the price. Allows you to track many aspects of a members participation like attendance, groups involvement, giving, etc... It also allows you to run many different reports. If a report you desire does not exist then tech support will create one for you. It offers a child check in feature that can be used on Sunday morning for children's church. This not only looks professional but adds security making first time parents feel comfortable leaving their children in your care. Price varies according to church size which makes it very affordable when your are a young growing church.

Cons

Since ROLLCALL is not web based it can sometimes be difficult to access from a location other than your building, like your home. Also, child check in can be slightly complicated if you are meeting in a portable facility. You will need to either access the database through the internet and create a VPN, this may require some upgrades to your system, or copy the data file to a portable computer for Sunday service and then replace it to your server after. This adds a few steps which you must be diligent to do in order to avoid loss of information.

RollCall Review - TerraNova Church

Reviewed 12 years ago

I would definitely recommend RollCall. The price is very reasonable, the customer service is fantastic, and it has allowed us to really grow our ministry.

Pros

RollCall has allowed us to completely automate our child check-in. It is very easy to use. The kids are able to check themselves in every morning. We are able to accurately track our attendance, run labels for various mailers, send mass emails, and run visitor reports to send postcards to our visitors. It also allows us to do an accurate headcount during class to make sure that every child is accounted for and checked in. We also use RollCall for our summer VBS program, and our mid-week bible study for our kids.

Cons

Some of the query and reporting features are fairly complicated. I no longer send emails out using RollCall. Instead, I export the email addresses and send them out separately. The email feature is very touchy and if I accidentally use the Enter key on the 10-key pad, it will send my email out immediately before I'm done typing it.. To avoid this, I no longer send emails through RollCall. Also, changing the fonts for some of the mailing labels is not an option, and it is a feature that we would like to use.

Roll Call

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Roll Call is great for a church database both for contributions and our children's program attendance. The program streamlined the donation receipts this year.

Cons

Like most church-focused software we considered, it has its limitations because of different levels of church size and the cost of online features. Our church is small so the higher costs do not suit.

Roll Call Software

Reviewed 12 years ago

I am very happy with the program - the few things I don't like we have been able to work around and are more than outweighed by the functionality of the whole.

Pros

I like the way Roll Call is a whole church system - we bought it primarily to keep track of children's church but it is so much more than that. It is easy to teach and administer and has the flexibility to be modified for our needs. The back up assistance after purchase has been outstanding - no question is too trivial for the company to follow up. My every issue has been addressed and answered to my complete satisfaction. The company have also assisted us in acquiring the bar code scanners etc that we decided to use with the system, which allowed us to get them at a good price and with no questions as to compatibility.

Cons

The query function is not entirely intuitive (at least for me) and while information can be extracted to another program for further manipulation, it is a slightly cumbersome process. I would also like to see more options for information and formatting with the badges so we can include all the detail that we would like to see. Also the ability to change font, size and orientation would be good.

RollCall Software Exceeds our Expectations for MAC and PC Users

Reviewed 11 years ago

We highly recommend this software for all church sizes. We needed something to get us out of the file cabinet records drawer and into the real world using electronic media. This is a simple software package that provides us everything we need to maintain membership and contribution records. Our church size is approximately 100 Members and this fell right into our budget range. We just upgraded to Version 11 and see even more improvements that will help us better communicate with our members and visitors with letters, mailings and Email. The report documents are much better and we see great improvements in the user interface.

Pros

Version 10 is easy to use and implement. Works well on a MAC as well as a PC. You can't beat the pricing as compared to many other softwares we looked into. You maintain / host the software on your on your premises and on your hardware. I was able to save time by importing membership data in a CSV format. It is very flexible in customization providing numerous fields to change for our specific needs. Customized "Access Levels" gives us security at different levels.

Cons

Report customization is lacking and could use more flexibility. The Query tool is is a bit cumbersome but works.

A Wonderful Solution!

Reviewed 11 years ago

Best church data solution on the market!

Pros

I have been in ministry for 17 years now and have never been satisfied with any church data management software until now. Rollcall is both a simple to use product and powerful ministry tool. In a world of complicated and expensive data solutions, Rollcall is a breath of fresh air. It not only meets my ministry needs, but exceeds them in a way that is very cost effective. Instead of a "one size fits all" approach to data management, Roll call has succeeded in offering the perfect size that fits us both financially and functionally. Thank you guys for working so hard to develop a product that keeps my life simple.

Cons

The only suggestion I might make is that the reaction time of the server be increased or some indication that what I click on has been recognized so I don't keep clicking and confusing the server locking it up.

Most Excellent Church Managment Software I've ever used!!

Reviewed 13 years ago

Roll Call is currently Super. It is hard to improve upon perfection.

Pros

We love the detailed record keeping & reporting. The cost is most certainly a bargain compared to functionality. With the implementation of version 9.5, the check-in feature is allowing us to empower others to have a sense of ownership in our church outreach. One might say roll call has inspired an internal revival of church workers. Thank God for Roll Call. We give it an A++, & with the below described improvements it would easily surpass everything out there in our opinion.

Cons

I would like to see a greater ability to multi-task with-in the same window. A central desktop type opening window with a look similar to quickbooks would be more appealing than the current file tab selection.

Great child check-in system!

Reviewed 8 years ago

The roll call check-in system has been a great addition to our children's ministry. It is very easy to use, which was a concern to me when we were shopping for a system. The labels are pretty economical and convenient to order right from the websight. The only real glitch we've experienced is that sometimes it fails to print a parent tag when the child tag is made. We have to submit again to get a parent tag. However this is something I have not yet contacted customer service about. I'm sure they will have an answer, as they have been very courteous and efficient when I have called with other questions. When our church grows a little more, we will add the touch screen or the key tag scanner- not sure which.

Super fast, super fun...

Overall, its a win for the church, business, daycare, or anyone needing to keep up with who's coming and going.

Pros

This software is very fast compared to others and now with the new kiosk mode that can be used on the iPad, or other tablets, it looks great too! Super interactive and creates quick, seamless check in for all. Also, the pricing is unlike the competition. One time purchases make this software budget friendly for everyone.

Cons

There is some training necessary to work within the software, setting it up, getting reports, etc. It's not a con, just could be hard for some.

Best church software ever!!!

Reviewed 8 years ago

This software is wonderful! I did a great deal of research based on price and value and this is clearly the front runner. I loved the fact that every time I had a technical issue or any kind of issue for that matter; I was able to call them up directly and got a hold of someone immediately (no phone tree of any kind). Every time I had a problem, they solved my issue very quickly. The only con is that they are only available M-F during business hours. There was no support on like a Sunday morning. Other than that this has been a wonderful experience and I highly recommend this to everyone! Great product and great service!! Love the online tutorials!

Ease of Use

Reviewed 12 years ago

Great for price and easy to use.

Pros

I demoed several online programs and found this was the easiest for me to navigate for my (Church's purposes). Although at this time it is only being used to track membership and donations, it has other features we thought we could benefit from in the future and the price fit our Church's budget. I think it's a great program for small churches.

Cons

Would like the option to not have visiting churches/individuals who give nice donations, for which we might need to give a donation receipt count as part of our 100 members.

Easy and Functional!

Reviewed 8 years ago

We tried a variety of church management software programs before settling on Roll Call. I couldn't believe how simple it was to use and functional, especially compared to the more expensive programs like Shelby and Logos II, which both made me want to tear my hair out. We have been particularly pleased with how easy it is to print and customize things like labels and giving statements. And to top it all off, there's no ongoing fees. The tech support and sales people are all very friendly and prompt to respond. They let us purchase the software on a 10 month payment plan, which made it even more affordable.

We love Roll Call Lite! We have many refugee families and volunteers to keep track of for our ministry, and it really is the perfect software for us.
