ShelbyNext Membership overview

What is ShelbyNext Membership?

ShelbyNext Membership, a product by Shelby Systems, is a cloud based solution for church management and other non-profit organizations. With the help of mobile apps - available for both Apple and Android devices - the product helps churches to build and engage with their community and grow their network beyond the walls of the church. It allows the leaders to maintain up-to-date information about individuals and groups, track interactions, generate reports and manage calendars through a single interface.

ShelbyNext Membership provides the management of individual profiles where apart from basic contact information, it is possible to store data related to family groups and important dates. The solution allows the leaders to view a detailed conversation history which helps in accessing crucial data before making any calls or visits to the member. Parents can manage the check-in and check-out of their children on-the-go and view details of their attendance via a mobile app. RFID cards and scanners can also be used for the purposes of checking-in and out.

With ShelbyNext Membership, leaders can track donations and import donation data to an excel file. The calendar management and room reservation feature allows the users to streamline groups or events by reserving equipment and planning the set-up of specific rooms required for an event. The product provides third party integration as it allows users to import or export data on excel thereby easing the process of member tracking.

Overall they are doing alot of neat things and I am looking forward to seeing how they continue to develop the product. They have a clean design that makes it easy to use and quick to set up.

Pros
Recently they have been adding more and more features. Their membership management is at the core, but they have updated the calendar, forms, and giving to be better and more comprehensive within the last year. They have some really powerful features like workflows which allows you to automate some key processes and notifications.

Cons
There are a few features I wish they had, but one overall theme is how I wish that they integrated more closely with their partner software. The company that owns Shelbynext has been blending their different Saas products but there is still a bit of a wall that keeps the integrations from being seamless​. A good example of this is how there are 4 different ways that you can give via different methods on mobile, but none of those apps have all of the features of memberships, group, forms, calendar, and giving in one product. I think that this will probably be fixed over time.

Shelby Membership Module Overview

Review Source: Capterra

It's just been good. As with any new system, there is some learning curve but, for the Membership Module, it's been a rather soft curve.

Pros
It's a really solid product overall. The best features are it's ability to easily enter, edit, combine or delete member records. The combining of duplicate records is ESPECIALLY useful. It transfers all information, including giving information, to the chosen record and misses nothing. Again, an excellent tool indeed. Plus, the entire package is just user friendly. It doesn't require indepth instruction to use and find needed information about an individual member, a group or team, and so on. Finally...the email function that allows emailing end of year giving statements is excellent.

Cons
I cannot really identify a significant downside to this software package. It simply does the job in an efficient, easy fashion.

Great Organization Tool

I enjoy having all the features in Shelby Next for groups, and for sending texts to specific groups as reminders, etc. Our church still likes to print a directory for our older members, and I'm glad I can still do that through Shelby Next for them. Shelby Next is more user friendly than other software I've seen, which is a big help in training new leaders who might be resistant or a bit apprehensive about using technology.

Pros
It has really helped me organize our church membership data. It's become a great tool for our leadership to use as far as Interactions and keeping membership information handy for our leaders who are on the go. They really utilize the directory in the Shelby Next app for reaching members and checking on them during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cons
I would like to see more updates in the mass contact portion of the software. Being able to insert and use graphics more easily in email templates would be a great help.

Shelby Next Pros and Cons

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
That it is cloud based, love the app and being able to use the software where ever I happen to be working. The overall look of the site is fresh and fairly user friendly. Easy to get around and update profiles. Check In was not an option with V-5 so that has been a nice feature. We love the ability to create forms as well, really has helped us with many events.

Cons
Reports!! Headers, dates, reliability of the data is really poor. V5 gave us way more options for creating and saving reports that are used regularly. The Directory feature needs work as well. Would like the pre-set configurable fields to be more flexible.

Review Source: Capterra

Before we migrated to the ShelbyNext Cloud platform, our ministers and staff never had current data and it was always difficult to follow-up so the database was not updated. Now, if the users perform as they should the data is always updated and communication between ministers, staff and members has increased by 100%

Pros
The portability and distributed nature of the cloud database keeps everyone on the team and in the church connected and up to date. There is ongoing enhancement that helps make the product more user friendly. The security of the data and the ongoing updates and the redundant backup process reduces in-house IT staff time.

Cons
The giving reports are not accurate. When you run a demographic of givers from three years ago against current date, the current data is wrong. The program does not look at the dates. We live in a complicated world and we must be able to show through reporting tools how the giving is coming in to the system. Shelbynext does not do this well.
