ZionWorx Reviews

Reviews summary

Pros

I have received 4 or 5 upgrades to date, and am finding the program a dream to work with, but am the most impressed by the effective and timely tech help service we receive.

Bruce D.

We have been trialing Zionworx for a while now and have found it to be very easy to use and flexible providing a quality presentation for our services. At the price it is excellent value for money.

Stephen L.

The ability to tailor backgrounds and font themes to songs is great and has attracted several compliments from visitors to our church. We look forward to future Zionworx enhancements.

Wes G.

Cons

We really wanted to get a solution for running DVD's and we were initially a little disappointed when we found there was no built in facility.

Barry J.

The inability to re-arrange lyric slides via a drag/drop action on the main presentation screen is unfortunate.

Shelly P.

We have a guy with visual problems who prefers black text on white background.

Fast and Efficient

Reviewed 3 years ago

Fast and efficient customer service, easy to operate, the software is reliable, enables data importation and the use of various forms of media.

Pros

Zionwork features add a professional feel to the display. It is also easy to use, it adapts to any presentation and provides the functionality needed with no technical glitches.

Cons

New versions of the software have minor bugs. Additionally, it is not a multi-user database. The software cannot be linked directly to websites and it does not provide linkage for a video feed from a camera.

ZionWorx 2014 Review

Reviewed 2 years ago

Using ZionWorx 2014 for preparing and presenting: Church Service playlist very quick to prepare or modify. Database easy to add or edit songs. Using ZionWorx has given us a flexible and reliable presentation software package.

Pros

ZionWorx 2014 is very easy to setup and comes with a 10 user license. Video and audio files work every time without any issues. Powerpoint files integrate perfectly. Backgrounds easily changed. Themes can be modified and customised. Video tutorials are easy to understand.

Cons

ZionWorx 2014 I have found no issues to report so far.

ZionWorx 2014 Projection Software Review

Reviewed 7 years ago

If you are planning to buy worship software, ZionWorx 2014 makes your choice a lot easier and a lot less expensive. ZionWorx costs just £110 for a Church (or team) license for up to 10 users, making ZionWorx, one of the most affordable worship applications on the market. ZionWorx has a clear interface, yet a vast range of features. It can import songs from a wide range of applications including:...

Low Cost and Good Support

I would recommend this software to any church looking to keep their initial and ongoing costs down. Together with a team of four other volunteers, I have been using ZionWorx 2014 song projection software at Ludlow Baptist Church for over six months. Before choosing ZionWorx, I considered SongPro, Easy Worship and ProPresenter. We had a limited budget and already had a projector and a donated laptop...

This software is brilliant! Just what we needed

Reviewed 4 years ago

Easy to use Improved our presentations immensely Clean and seamless presentations Good value

Pros

We are a small church and needed a simple to use but resourceful presentation software to bring us into the 21st century and this program did it with ease. We checked out several alternatives but were attracted to ZionWorx for its easy use and seamless presentations. We have several computer operators who have all found it easy to use, taking only a short time to get into the swing of it. Setting up the songs is easy, particularly if the worship leader wants to modify the order quickly. All done in seconds. If a visiting speaker wants to put pics or a PowerPoint in it only takes seconds and is done! We have had no real issues with it and found it to be very stable. The price was right too.

Cons

When typing in songs and setting them up and undo; button would be good but generally I have no complaints. It does what we wanted and performs beautifully.

Heartily recommend this excellent program. Easy to use and reliable with good support too.

Reviewed 4 years ago

We got it to go with our first projector so we have benefited from the beginning.

Pros

We've had this since before 2014. Simple to pick up and use yet it also offers sophisticated options. We use it at a basic level with a simple display screen (no pictures or videos) for easy reading for songs and Bible verses and occasionally for a power point or for one of the other more sophisticated options. We don't have a team and when our operator left for Uni others were able to pick it up very quickly.

Cons

I have a personal preference for an old fashioned help file which I can read through both to see how to do something and to see what can be done, but I understand it's not always the way nowadays. I would like to see a bit more detail and depth in the online help though the videos are genuinely useful

Zionworx is worth every penny of the license. We trust it capabilites and seldom experience issues.

Reviewed 3 years ago

Stopped having technical issues during services of worship and other church meetings

Pros

Easy to use. It seamlessly provides all the functionality required in our worship serivce - songs, videos, presentations etc. It used to be that when the service leader wanted to show a video, it was always prefixed with "If the technology works . . .!". We have not heard this in three years since moving to ZionWorx 2014as the technology always works.

Cons

Occassionally new releases have minor bugs. This is more of a feature request, but it would be good if the database could become multi-user

We like it but there are things to change

Reviewed 3 years ago

We love the ability to show the lyrics and other visuals on two screens at the church, but the inability to add multilingual support is sad (which has been promised a long time ago as "it's being worked on right now")

Pros

- convenient to show the lyrics on the screen for the worship services - easy navigation from one slide to another and between the songs/videos/other visuals - shows on two screens

Cons

- one of the biggest drawbacks - inability to add lyrics in two languages (we are a tri/bilingual church and the songs are usually in Ukrainian or Russian AND we'd like to have English as well)

A powerful, easy-to-use piece of Church Presentation software

Reviewed 7 years ago

ZionWorx is a very powerful and flexible tool that does everything we need from it. Indeed, it provides more than we need - I haven't used all of the features. The song interface is simple to use, and the concept of "arrangements" is particularly useful - for each song you can define (multiple) arrangements, i.e. what order the verses and chorus are in - so if you know that you're only singing verses...

Vendor response

Many thanks for your review! To anyone reading this we just need to clarify that the 'Name-Your-Own-Price' arrangement was only available between 20th February and 15th May 2014. This offered Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum purchase options, but unfortunately proved to be a financially unsustainable model.

We are a small church of about 100 that couldn't afford a lot 10 years ago as a plant. When we finally went electronic we found Zionworx as a free option. Version 2.6 worked great. Last year we did upgrade to 2014 but had to get a new computer to use it. It works better than ever. We can do presentations of video and pictures so much easier than before because we can use them in the program itself....

Generally this is an excellent piece of software. So much better than SongPro.

Reviewed 3 years ago

The software makes presenting services during a Sunday attractive and efficient. It does not tie us down to having just one operator as it is easy to use.

Pros

Straightforward, easy to set up playlists and change during a service, good set of options without making it complicated. We have a number of people using ZW and they all seem to find it simple to use and intuitive. Linking it to Dropbox has been very successful.

Cons

There are still some occasions when the software has failed. This seems to be associated with Powerpoint. It would be good if there was the ability to link directly with websites and I have not been successful in finding a simple way to link in a video feed from a camera.

Fabulous piece of software - does all we need - easy to use

Reviewed 4 years ago

It absolutely does what it says it does, reliably and well.

Pros

We have had experience of a number of worship/presentation software packages and Zionworx is by far the best. We specifically wanted software that could handle multi-media, with the opportunity to explore new ways of integrating AV into our worship. We also wanted something that could be used by non-technical people - both in set-up and in presentation modes. Zionworx absolutely does this

Professional looking worship service presentations

Pros

Very easy to learn and for ongoing use. Love being able to change backgrounds on the fly. Integrates well with the PC's file structure.

Cons

The inability to re-arrange lyric slides via a drag/drop action on the main presentation screen is unfortunate. To have to always open the song edit screen for simple re-arranging is inefficient when trying to keep up with the worship team's on-the fly changes during rehearsals.

Excellent tool for the audiovisual work of the church

It is very useful in our church as it is growing and it allows us to connect the attendees with each presentation and guide them with ease.

ZionWorx adapts to any type of presentation, it is multifunctional, the videos are of great help, in the same way the answers for support are immediate, I love that the backgrounds can be customized, that is, each song or verse you can change the background in the same moment without having any inconvenience.
