Pros

We like that we have email and text abilities build into the software. We also like that we can do attendance with it.
Customer support at SimpleChurch is also amazing. Whether it is a phone call, an email, or by using one of the many video tutorials, SimpleChurch is readily available to help however they can.
Mass contact is easy to use and effective. Giving reports are the clearest and best I have seen.

Pros

I was so confused, and he was SO PATIENT. I love being connected to great customer service and overall great people.
The Fund Accounting is most helpful for the churches I help. The monthly reports are great to send to my clients so they can see where their money goes and how much they take in.
Better than most I've seen and I think it is in most part due to the ability to talk through the needs with Aplos support and get the help on what functionality meets those needs.

Cons

The data base problem that someone else mentioned, has proven to be problematic. Our biggest problem though, is in using the on-line directory function of the software.
Their options for how to use the database are limited.
Sometimes the latest updates take a while to reach our system. The pricing system can be confusing at times.

Cons

Third, I get lots of complaints from customers about the transaction errors which make it hard to give.
The Check In system, for us, was not working too well. Research was done and the application was tweaked to service us.
I am unhappy that I cannot find a Vendor to do a new A/P Entry. Instead have to scroll thru pages to find the one I'm looking for, a simple search would suffice.

Aplos

Focus is accounting

Reviewed 4 years ago

I was searching for a donor management CRM and Aplos was one of the software options sent my way. While I think they would be great for a company or NGO looking to centralize their accounting and other administrative and fundraising efforts, my organization already has accounting set up elsewhere and was looking for a CRM focused on the fundraising and donor relationship offer exclusively.

Pros

Comprehensive platform if you are looking to run accounting, donor management and prospecting, etc from one place

Cons

Heavy accounting focus and that isn't what we needed. No one contacted me by phone like other CRMs, so questioned their customer service.

CFO of Nonprofit for decades.

Reviewed 5 years ago

I love the ability to due true fund balance accounting. For years I used Peachtree with job costs and spreadsheets to accomplish. This is a huge upgrade. I think the work around in the deposits is worth it for the fund balances.

Pros

It is easy to use "out of the box." If you been working with Quickbooks or Quicken this will be an easy transition. Also, you can add multiple tags to a single transaction, and then you can sort on these different tags. This provides and amazing matrix of data.

Cons

I big big draw back for me is the inability to batch deposits. It makes it more difficult to do reconciliations. They do this because the want you to use their CRM component. Of course there is a work around, but I would rather not "work around" such a critical area.
