Pros

The support has always been outstanding -- every individual I've worked with is friendly and super helpful. And the crowdsourced support (online) gets good answers to your questions too.
This is still a good software for the church wanting to connect with its members more frequently. We love the ability to track leadership encounters with our membership.
We previously used Shelby V. Both products have a great deal of advantages in our congregational needs. ShelbyNext seems to be more user friendly that Shelby V.

Pros

We have had a great experience. Our church loves this software and it has been so beneficial to us.
I like the versatility that is built into the system. It is a nice blend of fixed features and the ability to create the fields need to capture the information that is unique to my church setting.
The software is very user friendly and the customer support is outstanding. Anytime I call them they reply in the same day usually.

Cons

There is no alert given if there is a problem on a background check. There is no way to indicate family relationships such as grandmother, siblings, nieces, nephew, etc.
We've had several instances where when problems arose, customer service reps were just as perplexed with the issue.
No back arrow to look at the previous transaction entered. If you are entering a list of manual checks and need to add a vendor all of the previous info entered (date, check number etc) is lost.

Cons

Having to turn my cell phone sideway to use. That makes it awkward for me to use.
Hard to delete contacts because of having to search and find the groups they are listed in before they can be deleted.
I have not run across anything I don't like. There are more options included in our package than what we use regularly.
