Comments: Our church has been using LOGOS software for over 14 years. We were recommended to LOGOS by another church at the time and after researching several church management / church accounting software LOGOS came out on top for us from a technical and practical point of view.
1) They understand the local church and are totally dedicated to helping the church in this arena.
2) It is designed for a small church or large church and has everything you will need.
3) The customer service has always been there for us as a church, this where that understanding of the local church environment is important because every church is different.
4) We like the ability to customize the software at different levels to fit our church environment.
5) Very good ROI value, the software will grow with organization and for the most part will not need to look for another.
This is just to name a few. If you┬┐re a church just starting, small, or large then you should consider giving LOGOS a serious try.

Comments: Our church has used the Logos II software/product for seven years. The software and programs have exceeded our expectations and have kept up with the demand of our growing church. I recommend this product to churches who are looking to maintain accurate records (either membership or financial) while continuing to stay ahead of the technology curve.

Comments: Pros: ...uhh

Cons: Incredibly slow. Finding the perfect set of criteria to create a report is extraordinarily difficult. The slightest tweak (that seems logical) will give you 0 results, or literally every person in your database. When you have problems with it, it takes days for the support staff to return your phone call and when they eventually do, they tell you to "watch all of the video tutorials" before calling back. Their video tutorials are 10-20 minutes and are virtually guaranteed to make you fall asleep. Inputting attendance takes all day because you are going to run into problems along the way. There is no easy way to add people to the system in the middle of the job. If you try to certify an address that the program doesn't like, it freezes and you have to close it out for half an hour before you can go back to it.

Terrible!

Comments: This software is so archaic and difficult to use that I feel like I've stepped back to 1998. Reports are impossible, support is slow and questionable, and cost is unbelievable for what appears to be a poached version of another piece of old software. Multiple problems just logging in to the system, days spent waiting for returned calls when we have problems (fairly often), and management refuses to return calls to hear complaints. We have used it for 7 months and I regret every moment spent trying to figure it out. I'm currently searching for a replacement and seriously considering building my own spreadsheet to get by in the meantime. Don't do it.

Poorly Designed

Comments: We attempted to use this software for 6 months and ultimately gave up. It was not at all intuitive, and some of the most basic functions required hours of training just to figure out how to do simple tasks. I attended an hour-long training course to learn how to make labels, and ultimately determined it would be easier to export the information to Excel and deal with it that way. Even our most tech-savvy people couldn't figure it out. We are now using Roll Call and are so much happier!

Logos is a good product

Pros: Logos is a thorough software product that meets the needs of our church's records. Logos staff are available to help and answer questions.

Cons: I'd like for more training sessions to be available in the package we purchased. As an added incentive for continued customers, after using Logos for one year, give two free training classes. After two years, add one inexpensive module the user does not have. After three years, give something else, and so on every year. After 10 years, stop charging the monthly fee and call them a lifetime member. Logos will have earned over $9700 after 10 years x $81 monthly fee. That seems like a pretty good exchange.

Overall: I'm not sure if you were looking for a review of Logos or not. I'm not familiar with Capterra. I use Logos only.

Excellent Parishioner Database

Pros: I rarely need to call support for Logos. It is very easy to understand and "pull" information for end of year reports. The database is consistent and as extensive as you need it to be.
You do not need to be a computer programer to use this database. I love it for the contributions and giving statements. An audit friendly system.

Cons: Customer Support is expensive to maintain. But 1.) I have not needed support often 2.) the minimum support entitles you to updates.

Overall: Our church switched to another database, what a disaster, not user friendly and was very complicated to understand. We went back to LOGOS! LOGOS is an excellent database that will grow with your church and serve it well.

Can't function without it

Pros: Logos software is the back bone of everything I do - labels, Sunday School rosters, birthday cards, contribution statements. It has helped us to stay current and consistent with our membership and visitor data. I love that I can look up a family and now have their picture right in front of me, can click to get directions to their home, or send an email.

Like any software, it takes a little while to learn to "Think" like Logos. Logos has been well worth the expense and time we have put into it.

The support team has always been helpful and friendly. However, for the last few years, I rarely have to call them!

Cons: Because so many of the staff members at our church now use laptops (and even one Mac user), we can not network the laptops to Logos without purchasing the hosting solution which is out of our budget at this time. I wish our entire staff had access to our Logos files!

Also, I am waiting for even more flexibility in running reports. I'm sure they'll come up with it soon!

Very little in this world is perfect.

Overall: I love it - couldn't operate a day without Logos.

Pros: It keeps the day to day operations more organized and is a must for safety in children's ministry. The boundless options for searches and ease of use (once you get used to it) is top notch.

Cons: Customer support is lacking. It takes days sometimes to hear back from the "24/7" customer support, this can be difficult when on a time crunch. There is also a bit of a learning curve for new users and a lack of appeal to certain ministries to implement it because of that,

Overall: It definitely keeps the church more organized.

Non-response by Management

Pros: Because I am frustrated with LOGOS' response I have no positive comments

Cons: I have sent emails, called on the phone, discussed situation with Support Rep, and am very frustrated by not getting any response from Sales or Management. The telephone system yesterday (Nov 18) would not permit me to connect to sales or support. It appears that Sales and Management no longer exists.

Overall: If LOGOS desires our business I suggest they improve their telephone service and response to the customer.

Pros: I have been very pleased with the responsiveness and willingness to help by the Logos support staff. This is truly a Christian Company that cares about churches. Not only is the technology much better than our old provider, it is easier to use, and the training dept at Logos is lights out.
Our parents love the Logos360 Safe social networking product, our kids are off Facebook and in the safe environment that we control, and our youth pastor can monitor. The Accounting program is so much better than Quick books, I am embarrassed we didn't move over sooner. They also saved us some money over our previous vendor...a great experience it has been. The Ministry Connection program has allowed us to receive on line tithes, and we have seen an increase in giving.

Cons: None that i've seen so far.

Overall: I highly recommend this software, it has been much better and easier than a previous software we used. The staff at Logos is like calling a friend, we never feel like a 'number' with them. I'm very happy to be a member of the Logos family.
