ShelbyNext overview

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.

Once trained very easy to use and intuitive.It is superior accounting software (and I have used many over the years). I like the basic logic to this software and because of this basic logic the ability to run many different reports many different ways. I absolutely love the bank reconciliation reports and the general ledger and the way you can fashion reports based on your need. I like that you can adjust the income statement with custom columns.

Software has helped with online contribution and has definitely increased our giving. It is very easy to maneuver. Much like V5 was for us. As a whole we have been pleased with the software other than not having much luck with customer service. We did get a call back today and the person was helpful. We hope this continues in the future

Overall, I would not recommend this system to anything other than a church. As a religous, non-profit educational facility, it doesn't really meet our needs.The optional reports you can print are great, as well as, the way the system is set up to double check your input before you finalize in the ledger.

We have a software that is powerful, easy to use, and meets all of our accounting needs; all in a web-based application. We have had little-to-no downtime and have found the customer support to be progressively more responsive and helpful. Overall, we are pleased with the product and look forward to utilizing all its power in the future.I have used many accounting software packages over the years and comparatively, the Shelby Financials software has performed well above expectations. I like the ease of use and graphical information display. I am also pleased with its ability to allow you to tailor your screens to meet your needs and to increase speed of accessing important information.

none* As a church with many funds I liked the ease of creating new funds and departments. * ease of adding GL accounts for multiple funds * When sold we were told complete system; membership, giving, and financials. * When we purchased we like that Ministry Brands will pick and choose from their purchases the complete solution. * price compared to other cloud solutions for the complete solution was reasonable and very competitive. *SaaS/monthly billing. No software purchase.
