Pros

It's the best investment we've made for our church and it continues to grow and improve providing the best features you could ask for.
This software is outstanding. Not only is it easy to set up and implement, but the positive feedback you get from being able to easily communicate with guest, congregations, groups, etc, is non-stop.
We are doing a much better at data aquisition and therefore better at leading people through a funnel/process of assimilation as well as spiritual development.

Pros

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.
I was so confused, and he was SO PATIENT. I love being connected to great customer service and overall great people.
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

Sometimes the integration with Planning Center Online is spotty. That can be frustrating.
The only issue I have with the software is the lack of email open reports. You have to manually check each person to see if they opened the email.
There was too much communication and it took forever to cancel. Then the emails were non stop.

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.
