Comments: Since we have installed the Excellerate system we have reduced the amount of time it takes to count and record our tithes and offerings from 8 - 10 hours to as little as 40 minutes. We continue to find new ways to take advantage of the flexibility and utility of the system. We recently automated our on-line giving to load directly into the Excellerate system saving even more time. The support has been excellent. The Excellerate team will do everything they can to ensure that your needs are met. I reviewed many systems before selecting Excellerate and without a doubt I made the right choice.

Great product and customer service!

Comments: Excellerate has worked just fine for us for several years now.

I enter data from each Sunday's contributions, and generate the annual member contribution reports each January. (We currently have about 50 individuals/families making contributions.)

And I've called for technical assistance half-a-dozen times or so, and have always received friendly, courteous and professional help.

Excellerate has worked like the proverbial charm!

Thank you for your user-friendly and effective product!

Thanks Connie. Actually, you can use it on your Mac, iPad, even iPhone with Excellerate Cloud. You get all the same features but now you can access it on any device, anywhere you have an internet connection!

Comments: check in system is very user friendly, setup was time consuming and had to call support several times to get information, call back from support was not timely.
overall the system has improved the flow of our children's ministry check in/out . we have over 500 kids per week, this has eliminated the long lines and parents are thankful to have the peace of mind the excellerate check in system provides.

I would highly recommend Excellerate to any Church!

Pros: We have been using Excellerate for many years and it always accomplishes the task at hand. As we have grown to multiple campuses and made changes to better care for our congregation it has done so with us! Its adaptability to meet the specific needs of our church is simply amazing and appreciated.

It helps us from A-Z, from scheduling our volunteers, organizing our small groups and classes, to handling our contributions and much more.

Cons: The only downside I can think of would be the fact that it is not accessible from home, however for the safety and privacy of our congregations records perhaps it is not a downside after all.

Overall: I would highly recommend Excellerate to any church no matter how large or how small. It's adaptability to meet the specific needs of your congregation is priceless.

Excellerate is a great church database program

Pros: Excellerate has helped us out immensely as a church. We are able to keep track of attendance for class, connect groups, and people serving weekly. Pete and the team are always finding new ways to update the program and are always there to help you out.

Cons: I wish it was a web based program that you could access from anywhere. I know that if it is available Pete will do it.

Overall: I would recommend Excellerate to anyone. Whether you have a church of 60 or 6000, you can use Excellerate.

Amazing!

Pros: We have been using Excellerate for several years. We have enjoyed the ease of having our meetings, visits, finances and small groups tied in with our main database. The Excellerate staff is very helpful and quick to respond to any questions or new reports I need.

Cons: If only we could have the appointments and building usage tied in... ;-)

Overall: I recommend Excellerate as a great resource!

Pros: With the unlimited version we are able to do anything that we as a congregation may come to need. Customer support is absolutely the best, Adam is always fiendly and understanding with any questions or request that we may have.

Cons: At this day I am still looking for the cons, I have not had many issues that have not been able to be resolved, quickly and easily.

Overall: Definately recomend this program to anyone who is looking to have only ONE system for their entire organization.
