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.

KL

Karif L.

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

The ease of use of this software is the best part. With features that make it easy to see what inventory you have where, it is the best platform that I have found for my small business.

This software works extremely well, the structure of it is brilliant. I love how it integrates with dropbox and creates a filing hierchy.

DV

Dan V.

The ability to take a scan of the bar code on most items is very helpful. It helps capture the serial number which in turn helps us track when the item was purchased.

DL

Dianne L.

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.

PR

Pam R.

We've had several instances where when problems arose, customer service reps were just as perplexed with the issue.

BS

Brittni S.

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

I find it frustrating often and it is difficult to find support.

MM

Maria M.

The software is missing an option for filtering items through multiple tags. Right now, we can select a single tag for filtering.

Deven P.

Search field suing the web / computer doesn't work as well as the apps. Low inventory alerts are needed.

Great with a few limitations

Reviewed 2 years ago

Nice software, could use some ease of use upgrades. Really helping with keeping info updated; could also use some updates to tracking features!

Pros

Ability to sort and help create lists. Love the app version for giving and on-the-go numbers and addresses.

Cons

Not creative enough with data, ease of use and differences in desktop/app versions I find cumbersome. Calendar could be more flexible, especially with printable versions.

ShelbyNext Membership in the real world

Reviewed 2 years ago

Same needs as most churches - need to pull out a particular demographic for some sort of correspondence. Need to get trends for attendance in various groups. Need to track a member whose attendance has slipped.

Pros

I like that it is cloud based and that our data base is accessible from anywhere with an internet connection

Cons

Reports in SN Membership are an issue.There is SO MUCH formatting that must take place using a csv/excel report to ultimately get to the information needed. I have never liked that Contributions are a part of membership in SN. It forces us to create roles that exclude access to this feature as contribution information is held in strict confidence at our church.

ShelbyNext | Membership

Reviewed 2 years ago

We upgraded our Shelby to ShelbyNext a couple years ago, and it's been WORLDS better. Before, we had to go to our "Shelby experts" in the office to sort of figure out how to do anything, and now, it's so simple and user friendly that you almost don't need training to utilize it. It's been great with how much employee turnover we've had in the past year.

Pros

In SheblyNext | Membership, I love that as soon as you open the application, you're greeted with a search bar that you can type whatever small tidbit of information your have on someone, and instantly get it. It's been extraordinarily helpful when I'm in the receptionist roll. I'm also a big fan of how nicely organized all the details of each individual is laid out, and I love that you can link families together.

Cons

We upgraded from the '80's-'90's version of Shelby, and what I miss the most is being able to see an individual's overall attendance percentage from their attendance page instead of just green checks or red x's.

Pros

It is quick and easy on most things. Calendar entry is fast. Looking up names is fast. However, you should not have to look at ALL NAMES, even the people who have moved on.

Cons

The Calendar - it is easy to add new things, but could use some more sorting, editing options. It would be nice to select optional dates for events. At the present time, if you put an event to happen every week, but would like to skip a week or two, you cannot do that in the initial entry. We have contacted about this many times. They seem to ignore calendar fixes! Also, we need to be able to print a calendar list that includes dates, times and room numbers. Again, we have asked several times to no avail.
