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

None impressed me like Aware3 did. It became evident they were really passionate about creating a great product and experience for their clients.
Honestly, it's the customer service. They have an amazing support team who are not only prompt, they're very courteous, professional, and knowledgeable.
The ease of use on the back end paired with the many features on the base package (not to mention the great add ons) is amazing.

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

The geo-targeted notifications are very hit-or-miss as well, although I understand that this may be more of a carrier problem than an Aware3 problem.
At the time we were working with Aware3, they were unable to create a unique app for our church. We would have been forced to be lumped into a "container app.
Seriously lacking in features and setup was horrible to figure out.

Pros

We use Aware3 as a CRM and donation platform. It is good in tracking donor information and shows a history of donations a donor makes.

Cons

The limitation of the software is when creating a campaign. You cannot customize the page. You cannot indent or use bullets and have multiple paragraphs.

Vendor response

Thank you for your review! The good news is that we are working on some enhancements to the Appeals functionality. Stay tuned for updates!

Aware3

Versatile, User friendly

Reviewed 3 years ago

We are trying to create more donor engagement especially from millennials. Aware3 would help us reach a younger audience.

Pros

I love that Aware3 prioritizes donor engagement by making a really easy to use app. It's easy to make a profile, easy to connect with the organization, and easy to donate.

Cons

I don't like that as of today Aware3 CRMand The Raiser's Edge CRM don't communicate well. My organization primarily uses Raiser's Edge for our records and we'll have some hassles trying to get the same information into both software databases.

Vendor response

Thanks so much for your feedback!

Aware3

Very impressive feature set, with a comparatively low cost (vs. the competition)

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

It integrates pretty darn well with Church Community Builders, our church's CRM solution. The key for us is the ability to send notifications to mobile devices, which Aware3 delivers at a price much less than that of the competition.

Cons

If I were to complain about anything, it would be that some of the features (live polling, chat, and outbound text) seem to be priced higher than their value. But we just choose not to use those features. I hope Aware3 doesn't use that as a model going forward...that the newest developments will only be available at higher pay tiers (vs. being included in the existing subscription cost). The geo-targeted notifications are very hit-or-miss as well, although I understand that this may be more of a carrier problem than an Aware3 problem. Finally, as a bleeding-edge Android device user, it sometimes get the feeling that the Aware3 app is designed / tested with Apple devices in mind first. But they've been very responsive about responding to (and fixing) Android bugs.
