Comments: Church Management Software is new to us, so we don't know the full extent of its effectiveness for us. But from the start it is helping us better organize the day to day operations of our church office.
Servant Keeper's tech support has been exceptional in their understanding of our situation, their ability to simplify processes for our understanding, and in showing us ways to use their software to best serve our specific needs.

Comments: After 15 years it was time for an upgrade! We researched 5 companies and settled on Servant Keeper for a couple reasons. Their cost was unbeatable. The software is very user friendly and easy to learn. A very well thought our product!

We are starting with the local software, and hope to migrate to the cloud version in the future. This is something we are able to do without disrupting our data again. White glove service was worth every penny! All the people we have had contact with have been very professional and supportive. We made the right choice!

Comments: We have all our new church plants starting with Servant Keeper. I call my regional representative, Bernadette Reynolds, and she sets up the new church with their own account to get them started. No pressure!

Servant Keeper helps us tremendously with the receipting aspect for our churches.

Getting a church in the habit of using a database for other information is a plus as well.

We love the integration of Servant Keeper with QuickBooks along with their online giving option!

A different perspective ¿ an IT Services Professional¿s view of SK

4 / 5
Overall
4 / 5
Ease of Use
5 / 5
Customer Service

Comments: As an IT Services professional for over three decades, I am engaged daily, sometimes for hours on end, with software products, services, and helpdesks around the world.

Over the years, I have observed great software looses its greatness if the helpdesk and support team do not provide the same level of great support.

Sometimes made bearable with a good helpdesk and support. Tolerable with live, call-in, voice support instead of chat and email support. Quite serviceable if the helpdesk knows the software inside out.

Equally important is, if the helpdesk clearly understands the short-term and long-term purpose and goals of why the software was developed. A combination darn hard to find today.

To be really great software, the helpdesk must be equally great. That is not done by the helpdesk following a Script of (many times) unrelated checkpoints and disjointed steps.

I am not the "end-user" of SK. For my clients, my task as a contract IT professional, is to install, and locally support SK through all phases of it lifecycle. Of course, the client also has the ability to call SK directly. On the more technical, cumbersome or time consuming challenges, I am typically asked to do the "heavy-lifting" with the SK helpdesk.

Over the past 6 years, with every single instance, I have experienced a very high quality level of support. Some of the very best service have experienced, and I deal continually with a lot of helpdesks around the world.

How I rate SK (01, lowest to 10, highest points)

Service:
10 pts. Purpose Driven
10 pts. Mission Driven
09 pts. Down-right pleasant and personable - the right amount just to let you know it is "Person-to-Person", NOT "Script-Reader to User".
09 pts. Professional
09 pts. Knowledgeable - I am continually surprised at the depth the helpdesk folks know their product.
42 pts. Truthful - If they didn't know the answer at the time, there was no bluffing, no wasting time. Simply, "I don't know, but will find the answer or a staff person (supervisor or engineer) - and I will get back to you by (target time/date). 100%, without fail.

Oh, did I miss mentioning the software. Absolutely, 9.999 Points. (Of course it's not perfect)

I have SK installations in a very large congregation (1000+) and in smaller congregations (under 250). All of my users have found SK and the Helpdesk Subscription extremely Cost Effective.

ROI on all of this? In this case, Eternal - Priceless.

Comments: I agree with Julie. We have used SK since it's inception in the Windows market. It is really a great product. With version 6 one can still use workstations for the cost of the initial program to access the SK database on the main computer/server. That's a real plus. However, with version 7, you now have to spend $50 per computer. If you want your pastors, children's director, youth ministry to be able to access the data base, you're going to have to shell out some bucks. Also, eventhough we have been using this program for a long time, there are situations where we need some assistance. In the old days it was easy; just call and give them your user number and voila - help. Now you pay for it. If you want to access the knowledge base, you can attempt that, but it's not always easy to navigate. It's still a really great product and I recommend it. I would pay a little more for the product and the upgrade if I could still use the workstations for free and also get help that didn't cost so much.

Comments: I have found this program to be deceiving. It is easy to use until you come upon a question. Most of my questions, I haven't been able to find the answer in the help book. When you call for help, they only want to charge you first, then answer your question. It's all about the money with these people. Not any help after you buy the product, unless you can afford to pay more for the help. So if you have trouble with computers, this may not be for you. Need to find one that has a good help desk.

by Servant PC Resources on February 12, 2015

Hi Julia, Thank you for using Servant Keeper. I noticed that you are using an older version that you purchased in January 2011, so the 60 days of free unlimited Help Desk support has expired. We are so sorry to hear you were dissatisfied. The feature you called about is explained on page 134 of your guidebook. I trust that helps, however the HelpDesk can still assist you if you have further questions. We look forward to serving you in the future.

Comments: I researched for two years looking for a overall program for contributions, child safety, and membership management. While there are many good programs out there, I had trouble finding one program to do it all and be used in Canada. I finally choose Servant Keeper and have been very glad with my choice.

Servant Keeper membership, contribution and child check in are all integrated so information only needs to be add once. We purchased 3 seats and we are all able to use the program at the same time. Now any one of us can easily update or add new information about a family or member.
As a church in Canada, the contribution statements for Income Tax purposes are easy to modify so they are compatible with Canadian requirements. I have mine all done by the 8th of January this year!
Also, as a church in Canada, Protect My Ministry is a wonderful tool for requesting and receiving criminal record checks on our volunteers.

I have learned how to expand and utilize the database more every day and there are challenges, but when I call the support desk, my issues are resolved. Wow they are always friendly, polite and helpful. Including the sales representative, when we expanded to include the check in system.

I enjoy working with the database as the congregation grows and ministries change. The fields are user friendly to customize. The reports and queries and extremely helpful.

My challenge is maintaining data consistence with multiple users entering information.

Comments: Hi There. This is to send a special acknowledgement for a job well done by Brandy helping me to set up my Servant Keeper 7 in the cloud. I had completed the process properly, but I did not have the correct seat registration code and when I emailed to get it, Servant Keeper did not recognize mey email, though when I signed up via telephone to get my upgrade I asked the customer service rep to change all contact for Trinity Presbyterian Church to my email address. I understand that sometimes things do not happen timely, but it had been a few weeks so I was a bit annoyed that this had nto happened. But the good news is that Brandy took care of everything and I am fully operational now.

Kudos to Brandy for a job well done!

The Best Church Database Software Out There!

Ease of Use

Customer Service

Comments: I am a pastor of a 1,600 member congregation. We recently looked into several church database softwares such as Power Church, Shepherd's Staff, Community Church Builder (CCB), etc... Compared to Servant Keeper 7 (SK7), they all come-up short.

What makes SK7 stand-out from the crowd are a handful of important strengths: first, the software is much more intuitive than its competitors. This means that your staff will have a much easier time adjusting to it. It also makes it a pleasure to use each day. Second, the database search and maintenance features are top-notch. It does take some time to learn the software's ins-and-outs, but once you do, it's great! Third, the group management component of this software is wonderful. It saves me a lot of time to have the program determine who should be in what group based on characteristics I list in a person's individual profile. Fourth, the customer service is excellent. They made the transition from our old software to this one a breeze, and they have helped us with several minor issues after the big transition.

I really cannot recommend this software highly enough. I close with one last important comment: compared to other competitor softwares, SK7 was the cheapest option! There is an initial cost, but if you calculate the cost long-term, you will find it quite affordable.

It's design, ease-of-use, powerful search tools, easy-to-use report generating capabilities, group management features, and price all made it stand-out from the rest! I also would stress that the customer service both during the purchasing process and installing it throughout our church was of excellent quality.

Also, notices to select groups of the membership or visitors is more difficult without the use of the Servant Keeper program. I don't know everything this program will do for me, but this is my first year using the program. I am encouraged that I will get more proficient as I have more exposure to the different aspects of this wonderful program.

Servant Keeper fit perfectly. We have used other software to track members and donors in the past but often found it too general for ministry purposes.

Firstly, the things we appreciated most was the customer service. They were honest with what the software could and could not do. And the thing we appreciate most was that it was easy to navigate , add donors, place them into families or categories, schedule reminders, and all the other things needed to make it easy to work with those who work with you.

Secondly, there are a few cons, but nothing that was deal-breaking. For one, the three-part structure (Admin, Membership, and Contribution) was a bit unusual at first. but once I started using it, it actually became somewhat intuitive. The appearance of the software could also look a bit more "modern" or inspiring as well, but hey, it works!

We enjoy the flexibility and usability of Servant Keeper. Just knowing it is simple and can do the job easily inspires us to make the most of it. It continues to simplify our operations.

Comments: I am just getting started using Servant Keeper. After about a month of using the Membership and Contributions modules, I am thrilled! I am anxious to get into the details of this program and see what all I can do. It is very user friendly and Jon was extremely pleasant to work with.

I'd like to report back in a few months after I have used it more.

Thank you!

Comments: Our church is small and the thought of paying anything over $400.00 for computer software seemed like an expense that we simply could not afford. However, when you consider the ease, convenience and possibilities of what "Servant Keeper" can do it IS well worth the price.

As you shop for church software, remember . . . we serve a great God so don't worry about the price.

Comments: I was introduced to SK seven years ago and have kept current with their updates and now, the new version 7. The program is easy to learn and both pastors and I have found it useful as a directory, a picture directory, and to gather data for reports. The church keeps attendance data for worship, Sunday School, and Vacation Bible School making it easy to run labels and construct "Mail Merged" letters. I also use the contribution module and have found that to be user-friendly as well. It works so well for me, the pastors, and this church, that 3 other churches have purchased it based on our experiences and recommendation. BTW The help desk is excellent!

Comments: Servant Keeper is a dream come true for church staff. Whether you are an administrative assistant or bookkeeper, this program allows you to easily manage your information. It is the most user-friendly church software program I have found. I've been using it for about 6 years. The longer I use it, and the more I utilize the features, the more I appreciate the capacity of this software. This software lets you easily manage your membership data, as well as attendance records, visitors etc. The contribution manager painlessly exports to QB simplifying things for your bookkeeper. I truly believe this is a "must have" for every church. My husband/pastor is always very pleased with how quickly I am able to produce any data he requires. Seriously, Pastors, if you want to really appreciate your Administrative Assistant this April, bless him/her with this software. You and your congregation will be the ones to really benefit.

Comments: I reviewed several software programs before choosing Servant Keeper. I wanted something that wouldn't be outdated before I entered all the data. I found that navigating the system is easy. Creating reports or sending emails are just a few clicks away. There is so much more I want to do, but it's finding the time to personalize the individual record that's hard. Once that's done I can remind our volunteers that their "turn" is coming up, or send out news flashes that our Easter play is coming up, and so much more. I am excited about all the opportunities I have in using this program. I am so happy with the product. I also started using Protect My Ministry for background checks. I couldn't believe how simple it was to do. A definite plus to the system! I must mention the person who I talked to many many times while investigating the system. She was so friendly each time I called or emailed. She answered all my questions and sent me emails with information that explained things further. Even after I bought Servant Keeper she has been there for me with my questions. She didn't push me off to another department. It's great because I feel like she cares about her job and her customers. I would recommend this product to anyone.

Comments: I am the administrator at a United Methodist Church, for nine years. When I started here, the church used a different program which was not user friendly at all. I believe it was 2006 when we switched to Servant Keeper. Love it - we did not regret the switch. It is easy to use and quite flexible. I do not use all the feature, such as Sunday attendance, but very happy with what we do use. We have had several different Finance Secretaries since using this program. They have all learned the system very quickly.

We just updated to Servant Keeper 7, so I am not able to give a clear opinion of the upgrades. What I have seen thus far is very good. The changes are not too difficult to figure out. Upgrading into my existing system went very smoothly.

Some Cons:
When I call for assistance, I often find myself waiting for quite awhile. But once I get through, I find the staff knowledgeable, helpful, and patient. I have not tried going online for assistance - would probably work better.

When pulling out specific groups, I wish for a little more flexibility. The SK7 may give that - have not had the opportunity to check it out yet.

Comments: We have used SK6 for a number of years at our church and have been very satisfied with it. My wife is treasurer at our church and at another church where she has been frustrated by their existing, 'clunky' system. Based on her experience with SK6 at our church, she persuaded them to buy SK7. One of the most useful features for entering contributions in SK6 was the ability to scan checks which prefilled the contributors details and helped ensure correct allocation. This feature has not been retained in SK7. Instead it has been replaced by a new feature which utilizes a service with TransModus which allows checks to be scanned and deposited directly into your bank account. However, this service costs $200-$300 per month which is too expensive for smaller churches with tight budgets. It would have made a lot more sense for them to have retained the old option in SK7 in addition to the new option. I can see that the new option could be useful for bigger churches with more substantial budgets. I just cannot understand why the existing users should now be adversely impacted by having the simple check scanning functionality removed.
I spoke to a SK sales rep who seemed to be at sea about why the functionality had been removed. I also did not get the feeling the he was particularly interested in communicating our frustration up the chain of command.

by Servant PC Resources on July 29, 2014

Andre, First, thank you for using Servant Keeper and for recommending it to others. I'm glad it has served you so well! We have indeed brought back desktop check scanning for V7. The decision was made based on emerging technology that replaced the basic scanners. One correction is that the TransModus feature you mention is billed a few cents per check, not several hundred dollars per month. I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. The benefit of the Transmodus check scanner is that it accomplishes the remote deposit, and can scan up to 90 checks at a time. The other thing many churches requested is online giving that integrates with Servant Keeper, thus eliminating double entry. Not only do we offer that now, but we are able to provide that at a significantly less cost than the other online giving options. Donors can give by credit, debit, or check account, according to the church's preference. Please contact us if you would like to discuss further.

I was very impressed with how she shared ways we can be upgrading our system with regular updates that are part of our package already. We didn't realize this and are very thankful!

Hi Rachel,Thank you for using SK. We are glad that you have been happy up to this point. To recap your call: We offer a 50% discount on Servant Keeper (Servant Keeper Small Church) to small churches and church plants. This is what your church purchased last year. The only limitation on this version is it is limited to 50 families. You may upgrade to the unlimited database for just $299. Most small church customers do end up upgrading to the unlimited version as Servant Keeper is helping them grow and reach more people. A big benefit of Servant Keeper is the award winning support. While we do allow customers to purchase software without a support plan, we highly recommend having support the first year. It's worth noting that, unlike our competitors, we do not outsource our support services overseas or to third party companies.

Pros: Simple to use. Entry screens are basic and easy to follow. Entry errors are easy to correct. Easy to add new people and catagories while making entries.

Members like how detailed yet simple their giving statements are. Clear format for easy understanding. Multiple options are available for statements to customize to your needs for that moment.

Reports are easy to read in ways that are simple for councils and chairpersons to review quickly and without additional training.

History is quickly accessed and can be used to create an abundance of reports for budgets and church needs.

Webinars are informative and helpful. Don't skip them if at all possible. They open new ways of using the software.

Cons: Pledges can only be tracked per person, not by family, on critical reports. There are ways to work around this by entering the spouse with a zero pledge, but doesn't not quite correct the whole problem there. Not enough con to outweigh all the positive pros though.

Overall: Servant Keeper is a great asset to our church record keeping & daily needs of managing our congregation.

The financial portion of the program is easy to use. You won't need an accountant to make entries & run a vast array of easy to read reports. Accountants will find the complete information they need as well.

The membership manager can maintain a wealth of knowledge about members & visitors. Easy to add & maintain. Reports are simple & can be customized for your specific needs.

Overall, the screens are easy to read, progress in logical fashion & allow even users with basic computer knowledge to be successful & not overwhelmed. More experiences users can customize, optimize & utilize the software is countless ways to suit their needs.

Customer service is friendly, quick access for help & well trained.

Our 3 year history with Servant Keeper has been positive & extremely beneficial to our church. I highly recommend this software for any size congregation.

I really love the way you can choose a defined category and create reports. Ex. Teens - a report can be generated male/female, grade 7-9/10-12, by age, etc.

Cons: The capability to generate an undefined search would be quite valuable. In regard to printing out reports, I would like to be able to create a report in another form other than a read-only adobe. Sometime I want to be able to cut & paste items and this doesn't give me the freedom to do so.

Overall: We don't really use the financial portion of this program, so I cannot address it.
The portion I do use, I've come to really utilize it in a positive way. Lets just say, I've really enjoyed becoming smarter than the program and been creative in what it has to offer me to do so.

We have some videos on our site demonstrating this. If you have any additional questions give us a call or email. I'm sorry the import tool did not meet your needs. Our records indicate that it does work for hundreds of churches who convert their data to Servant Keeper each month, however that surely doesn't make you feel any better.

Pros: I love the ServantKeeper Program. What I have learned from it has been so very helpful to me. I look forward to getting much more out of it in the days ahead.

Cons: I think some parts of it could be a little less complicated or made easier to understand. The Groups Keeper, in particular, could be made easier to understand.

Overall: Overall I definitely recommend it for church use.

Pros: We used version 5 far too long & were only using the Contributions module on a single PC when I assumed the position in August 2008. We then upgraded to version 6 & also purchased the Remote module for me at home & I began to learn the Membership module to train our office secretary at church on the Host. It made the task of pledges & contributions very simple. It takes no time at all. I can print (to hand out) or email quarterly giving statements based on the members' choice.
The secretary has learned the Membership module & has printed our first membership directory this summer with Blue Squirrel.
The best feature for us is the ability to keep everyone in one database without using spreadsheets or lists for mailings, directories, prayer chains, etc. Previously the Contributions records were updated independently of the Membership Records, which was double work & cause for errors. The profile pages have plenty of data fields for flexibility.

Cons: The church & I use Mac computers so a used PC was donated for the office & I'm using an old PC at home for Remote access.
Although we are using attendance for worship services we have not utilized many of the features yet such as Events. We have not done a picture directory either.
The Pastor has not used it although I set up a user ID for him, when desired.

Overall: I have found the customer support personnel very knowledgeable & helpful. I highly recommendation this church software.

Pros: It seems to be fairly easy to use and offers a lot of fields. I also like the contribution side of it. It's fairly easy and you can add notes when entering a contribution which comes in handy.

Pros: This software is simple to use and offers reports that can be customized to meet the needs of the different ministries in our church. The contribution module is very easy to use and reliable. Backing it up is simple ensuring safe records when the unexpected happens.

Cons: Creating more advanced customized reports is a little difficult until you are used to the software.

Overall: I highly recommend Servant Keeper. We were so blessed to have the this software program in '07 when our church was burned in the wildfires. The backup was uploaded to my laptop and we were able to access contact information for the people from our church that had been evacuated. We called cell phones made sure people that had been evacuated had a place to stay and were were able to search by address to find people from our church whose homes had burned down so we could help them. It also allowed us to continue church business from my laptop with no lost data while the church was being rebuilt.
This software has truly been a blessing to our church.

Pros: This software is extremely user friendly. I've used it for many, many years and have trained multiple coworkers and volunteers to use it when they substitute for me. Our ministers were able to learn it quickly and utilize it often. I especially love the adaptibility of the various fields and have customized them for our use frequently. The tech support is outstanding as well. Everything I have asked for in new versions has appeared in the updates. They are very responsive to ministry needs!

Cons: I don't use this software to track our visitors because our needs for reporting are different from what they have available.

Overall: I have used Servant Keeper for at least 16 years and can't praise it enough. I have been able to produce directories, attendance reports and other reports with ease. I tell everyone that Servant Keeper makes me look good and super efficient!

Pros: It is very user friendly and more well organized in comparison to others I've tried. Help is easy to understand. The contribution page allows you to see what you're doing without having to go to different screens. Customer support exceeds my expectations. You always get to talk to a person rather than research an information database.

Cons: Typing in the words to log on repeatedly is distracting.

Overall: I have tried 3 different types of software for church management. Although they all advertised that they were user-friendly, the others were difficult to understand and demanded that you do things their way. I kept searching for something that was easier to learn and that would meet our specific needs. When I tried Servant Keeper, I recognized that this software would allow me to personalize the entry of the contributions so that anyone who would need to look at the books could understand it. The Servant Keeper experience is definitely superior to other brands I've tried.

We are promoting a concert 10/22...SK Neighborhood arrived just in time. We looking forward to working through this with Click Books or Report Manager.

Cons: Rosters don't have the option to include "allergies" for our kids. Maybe another version/upgrade ???

Would like to edit 'teacher' on roster to "coach"

Overall: While we have only had our Servant PC database 2 months, I am excited about how far we have come in Managing God's People. This has been an exciting project and I actually look forward to coming to work...go figure!!!

A lot information to learn and a short amount of training. Training should be set up in a hands on setting and for longer than what is currently done for more in-dept learning.

Pros: Very easy to install and use. Servant Keeper makes life very easy because of things like ease in going from one program to the next. Ex.

To input the entire church is simple because of the ease in the membership entry program. The program makes it simple to keep track of visitors.

We have eliminated yearly contract fees and now have a system that actually meets our needs and is easy to use. We've experienced great tech support to get over our initial learning curve.

Cons: Would like to have training videos available for those who don't have a workshop in their area or so they don't have to wait for training. The sooner all the SK users at a location begin to increase their effectivenes and productivity the sooner they will appreciate the value of SK and truly use the product as designed. Short individual modules by topic would put this over the top.

Pros: I'm fairly new to SK. But have talked with Sales Rep (Bernadette) and help desk people for months leading up to purchase. I'm very happy with most everything. Especially the ease of contacting help desk. Although some of my questions weren't always resolved, They are always available when I need them. And are patient. I also LOVE that you have a working chat feature. I'm still working on adding information into the system. So far it's working well.

Cons: Haven't been able to resolve one technical issue yet relating to "the publisher not being able to be verified." Apparently it's because I used microsoft. The Help desk doesn't seem to readily have the answer. I was told to check into the user forum. Although I think I need to press the issue more with help desk. They've informed me that an IT person on my end will need to work on this issue. I'm hoping the help desk can work to have more of an answer for this problem in the future. Since apparently it's a common one.

Overall: Excellent. I'm very pleased with all aspects of SK. I mainly switched because of the Customer Service. That is number 1 in priorities for me.

Cons: The only problem we've had is with attendance. When running the reports, the reports only show who has been at church....not those missing. A little confusing at first, but we've figured out and are working around that!

Pros: So simple to add things, change fields, find people, send bulk email, mailings ect... To up date the sunday school roster was so easy I thought I messed it up! Everthing is so easy to use and navigate through. I do get my job done in half the time! I LOVE IT!

Cons: The only thing I can think of is adding our people to it. Being a new user and having to put our whole church in one at a time and then adding the sunday school classes seprately in groups not hard just repetitive. But that is it!

Overall: Buy it! You won't be dissapointed!

Pros: I bought Servant Keeper in 1997 because it was the most powerful most affordable church management system. I bought it for the same reason while in two other churches and I helped my local denominational office purchase it as well.

Besides the affordability, the best feature is that you can customize any of the fields to your on situation or church. This gives you freedom to create groups, searches and the data any way you need or want. It is THE best way to email any small group or your entire membership.

I would recommend Servant Keeper to any church for managing their memebership data without hesitation; it is simply the best on the market.

Cons: Because S/K is so powerful, it can be a little over whelming at first, but anyone can learn to do the basic functions quickly, even if they are not strong in computers.

It is a little difficult to manage with multi-users in multi-locations. We have volunteers using it and sometimes in their home. I wish there was a backup system that could be use over the internet some how. This is my only complaint, but we have found a work around to solve this issue with us.

Overall: It does matter if you are a small church with limited staff or a large church with multi-users, Servant Keeper will simplify your data management in every way.

Pros: Servant Keeper is very intuitive. I was able to start using it before I read the documentation or watched the webinar. (Not that I recommend that to the other users.)
I love the flexibilty of being able to change the names of fields and add and delete items from the drop down lists.
The offsite contribultion tool is wonderful. It allows our volunteer people to work from home, which gives them the flexibilty they need to work around their jobs and other life commitments.
The Check-In module has transformed our church. By using it to check in children for Children's Church, we are able to collect information about non- members when they first attend Citadel and reach out to them through other ministries.

Cons: Can't think of any.

Overall: I would like more "extra fields" and "extra lists" on the Profile page.(I'm greedy) so that we can organize better and devote the "More Info" page to a single category of information.
