Pros: Breeze is very customizable. It allows us to create a field for just about everything we have ever needed to track. I also love that it has a check-in feature available for our nursery and kids programs, we use this primarily for nursery and our Vacation Bible School programs. Searching for content is very simple using the search field in the admin page. I also love that it has an app and allows us to have our congregation and church members be able to create an account to look up contact information for other memebers.

Cons: I wish the check-in label printing didn't require a PC. I would LOVE to be able to make all of our check-in stations mobile using iPads but we can't as the label printer requires a PC in order to create a print station. I bought wireless label printers so I could print labels that way but unfortunately that was kind of silly now that we have them plugged in.

Overall: We were looking specifically for check-in options and we ended up using this as our entire church management system because we liked it so much! The features and customizations are endless.

Great Software!

Pros: This software is great. It lets your organize members, give every member access, gives you access to post for volunteers and much more. My favorite part is being able to check the children in and print name tags for each child! It also gives you access anywhere so anyone can access what they need at all times.

Cons: I can't think of any issues with this product. The price is great and customer service is a "breeze" to deal with.

This is really great church software.

Pros: Cloud based system that provides the necessary tools for check in systems, people tracking and makes it all a Breeze to do.

Cons: Not alot of cons for this one. Not as complex as other pricey programs. The cost is cheaper as long as you aren't a super small church.

Pros: Ease of use. All of our staff (ages 15-65) use Breeze with no problems. It's flexibility is incredible. The support team is amazing and the price is unbeatable!

Cons: Can't think of any weaknesses at all. This is a GREAT product that I recommend to all my friends, pastors, etc.

Overall: We use just about every facet of Breeze and we love it!

Pros: I know of no other affordable program for Associations of churches. However Breeze is so adaptable, that I have easily adapted it to associational needs. For instance, simply adding a church field allows me to link every person to a particular church in our association. I have made other such adjustments easily.

Cons: You might consider adding one step when sending out emails. Once I did a search and desired to send an email to 5 people on my Database. I had to back out of the email and get a piece of information elsewhere, and when I came back to the email, I managed to send the email to the entire database! (Embarrassing!) A confirmation step before sending the email stating that the email only goes to the selected group would help.

My experience with Breeze has been absolutely wonderful !!

Pros: The things I like most about Breeze are:

1. It's ease of use. Many of our users have commented on how friendly and intuitive the system is.

2. The customer service. Breeze's customer service reps have been outstanding !! They respond to my emails in a timely manner AND they return my voice messages.

3. Breeze's website and documentation. I am very impressed with Breeze's website -- the features list is readily available and understandable AND their documentation is easy to find. I appreciate that they are so transparent with such important information !!

4. Lastly, Breeze is very affordable. We are a small church with a small budget, but we can afford. Plus, Breeze is more powerful than one would expect for the price. They definitely defy the old saying that "you get what you pay for" !! With Breeze, you get so much more !!

Pros: Breeze ChMS is a great product for small to medium size churches. It is a simplified program that helps manage the functions of the church.

Cons: There is a bit of a learning curve with Breeze ChMS, but once we were able to work through the kinks, it's a great program.

After years of ill-fitting, over-priced CM software, we found Breeze CHMS and couldn't be happier.

Pros: Breeze is easy to use and modify to meet the unique needs of our church. We can let alone features that are not relevant to our needs, while at the same time custom tailoring those that are important to us. The stylish Breeze CHMS app is user-friendly and perfect for keeping us connected. The price of Breeze CHMS is cost-effective.

Cons: We would like to edit the terms used for family roles. Though we know that "Head of Household" does not describe someone's unique role in their family, we feel "Primary Contact" reads better, especially with our Millennials! Some navigation isn't as user-friendly as others, like profile photos. Most frequent question from my users is about changing that photo as many don't realize that you can click on it to change it.

Overall: We have one place to organize and utilize user data in formats we use. More users (church members) are updating their data. Admin. Assistant saves time on collecting, editing and updating data.

Does exactly what is advertised very, very well

Comments: We use it for a lot of document related tasks, which often means working on large monitors. The UI doesn't scale with your browser window, so things are often at the extreme sides of the screen. Great for some basic project management, haven't found it the easiest to scale for very large projects.

Pros: - Easy to use and learn - Clear, definable sections - Integrates well with other tools used for more immediate messaging (like Slack) - Great for when you need straightforward task management

Cons: - Activity can get a little blurry, especially with large teams - Filters don't always show every relevant task when selected - The Progress charts don't seem like they'll be useful for most

Pros: Breeze is super intuitive and simple to use, but with all the features we need for our church. We have found Breeze to meet all our expectations for a church management software solution. From people management to check-in to contributions to forms, they have a great product.

And their customer service is great. It is always very personal and they follow-up to make sure our questions are answered. In addition, they listen when we have an idea for additonal features. And new features are addded regularly.

We love Breeze!

Pros: This software feels like using a social media platform - accessible to all our staff - even the ones who don't like technology! We love that we can customize the profile fields, and the whole database is easily customized. Their tutorial videos are a huge help! They have even made videos just for us as we learn what new things can be done. They are always upgrading the features based on customer feedback. All of our database needs have been more than met, it's easier to use than the last database we had, and the price is amazing - what a value this has been to our church!

Overall: Much cheaper than the other options, incredibly easy to use and customize. All of our staff can use this software and they do regularly. We use it to track people, programs, volunteers, attendance, events, contributions, online giving, classes, decisions for Christ, and literally anything a church could possibly need to track regarding it's attenders.

Great product at a great price and you just can't beat their customer service!

Pros: Breeze is so very easy to learn and use. One is up and running quickly. Our members just love the phone app and staff is thrilled with how easy it is to use and the reports we can get. Check-in is so much easier now - no more fighting with our prior program. Volunteer reminders are a snap and so helpful. Breeze is customizable for fields specific to individual churches and all the data is easily accessible. Plus, you can't beat their customer support if you do have a question - many times they send a quick video of how to do it using your own data! They are so patient and no question is a "dumb" question. They transferred our data over from our prior company and stuck with us when some data didn't come over. They worked with it until we got it all from the prior company - and at no charge. The price is great, too. I also really appreciate the newsy emails we receive with helpful hints about Breeze or ministry in general. Compared to other programs, it really is a Breeze. Love, love, love Breeze!

Cons: There are a couple of really minor things I wish we had that were in a prior program (such as a copy button to copy name and address to the clipboard to use in other programs), but that is sooo minor compared to what it offers.

Overall: Price is great. Easy to use and manipulate the data. Support can't be beat. It is an all-around great product.

Pros: I like how intuitive it is, everything just "makes sense". When we started looking for church management software we tried several others and had a nightmare setting them up. When we did, it seemed like each one was trying to be a "jack of all trades" as opposed to a church management application, Breeze is designed FOR churches.

Overall: We were able to finally manage our member data, giving, and forms all in one place and have them work together. We are also using it for our children's ministry now

I love the photo integration, quick searches, filters and tags available, and I LOVE the cost!

Cons: The volunteer scheduling section is a bit clunky. It works but there are elements that need to be developed more in order for it to be a robust product in this section.

Very simple to use and flexible to customize to your needs.

Pros: Best features include the software's simplicity, tags & quality customer service.
Recently, in just a matter of hours, we were able to divide our 300 person congregation into some 20 New Neighborhood groups. This process was simple due to Breeze's powerful mapping tool, easy UI to create and manage tags. We are now about to announce an exciting new effort to care for people, connect neighbors and reach new folks as they come. Thanks to Breeze, this was also pretty simple.

Cons: The software offers few reports, and leaves powerful sorting only to excel exports. I do think the help and customer support is super, but we hope they continue to add features.

Comments: In general we love the program. It's a great first step into web based data management at a every economical cost.

Pros: The cost, web based so all the staff can use it and also the congregation can use it as a data base, update their own information, and also see their contributions. Very easy to use with great online tutorials. User support, when needed, is very quick and helpful.

Cons: Taking attendance is calendar based and if you have a very large church, it's a little tedious. It won't easily integrate with our website calendar because all the slides on our website are also calendar based.

Comments: This program works great for contributions, online and text to give, emailing and texting members-all things we were looking for.

Pros: We choose this software because of the reviews and the price. We were able to implement it quickly. Any questions we had were addressed and answered quickly and personally. It is very easy to use and has most of the features we were looking for.

Cons: We wanted a place to post volunteers schedules on a page, like a word doc. That was not available. We would have had to fill out a whole calendar each month. We are posting our volunteer schedule on our website instead.

Comments: I would highly recommend Breeze to any small to mid-size churches. Larger churches have needs that currently outreach the capabilities of Breeze, but I believe they aren't targeting the larger church market yet so they are doing exactly what they set out to do.

Pros: We were up and running within a few minutes of purchasing the software. Granted we are a small church so we had a limited number of custom field needs, but the configuration was self-explanatory. The help documents cover everything I've ever had questions about. And configuring forms to receive payments took minutes. I've never done a task in Breeze that was difficult to understand or implement.

Cons: I have limited experience with other other church management software tools, but my guess is that this one isn't quite as fully featured as some other tools. But they add new features often and they listen to feedback from users. This tool doesn't encourage collaboration between church members like some others claim to do, but we didn't need that so it hasn't been an issue for us.

Comments: On behalf of our church, we'd like to thank you for all that you do!

Pros: The program and the service as a whole are amazing! The program is economical, but certainly not cheap. It has all the amazing features and then some, and it's perfect for any budget. The customer service is phenomenal. There has yet to be a time when I couldn't be helped. There are just some amazing people here who have made it their life's work to help those of us in church management, simplify our work. Amen to that!

Comments: For the price, the features and the convenience of this software are really amazing.

Pros: Breeze was super easy to set up. The time to get up and running was minimal. The software feels very response and quick. We were able to input and test with our volunteers in just a couple of days.

Cons: There's not much to dislike about Breeze. We've had no complaints at all. I think contacts were automatically added with maps to home addresses. But this was simple to remove.

Pros: I like how this is a web based software so I can access my account anywhere without having to download anything. I also like how it pulls up the information quickly. It is displayed in a clean, orderly, and intuitive way so there wasn't much of a need for software training.

Cons: I wish the display name displayed the First, Last, and Nickname rather than just the nickname and last name when the nickname field is used. I wish it could also display a middle initial. It would be helpful when there are people with the same first and last name.

Pros: I like that it's very easy to use and to input the volunteers, email, and notify certain people about certain events. It's also good to use in keeping a database.

Cons: It could use more features on planning, scheduling, and also in coordinating different events. Check-ins are not as useful for our church or even for larger churches. It would be nice to be able to plan whole events down to the schedule of these events on Breeze.

Comments: The methodology behind using tags to manage data in your database is the power and genius of Breeze. This is hands down the main reason why Breeze beat out several fully-featured CRM options we were considering. Once you design your system of tags that is customized to your church/organization, you can assign multiple tags to a person from one screen, AND you can assign multiple people to a tag also from one screen. This makes Breeze so powerful!

Pros: Simplicity, user-friendliness, excellent customer support, incredible pricing - same price per month no matter how large or small the organization

Cons: Maybe not as many features as other competitors, but that's also why their software works as well as it does: simplicity and ease-of-use

Pros: Ease of use and customizable fields.

Cons: Our church has a little bit of trouble locating the mobile app in the app store and then getting linked to our church.

Overall: Breeze has made it so simple for us to manage, reach and stay connected to our church. I can easily see Breeze being our Church Management site for years to come. After using excel spreadsheets when we first launched and then converting to CCB in our 2nd year, Breeze is what we have been looking for. Breeze customizes so easily. Our church members love the text tool, email tools, tags (people groups), a calendar that links to all our platforms and so much more. The Breeze mobile app has saved our office calls and tasks that people used to ask us for like phone numbers, addresses and directions. Our treasurer really likes how easy it is to enter contributions and print statements. We have only scratched the surface of what Breeze can do for our church. What attracted us to Breeze was the price but Customer Service, Features and Benefits will have us with Breeze for a long time to come.

Recommendations to other buyers: Keep up the great work. We love it!

Pros: Easy to use. Best value by a long shot. No premium features you have to pay more for. They continue to develop the system so they are always improving it.

Cons: It doesn't do attendance tracking by number. Use would need a separate system to track weekly church attendance. Not a big deal because there are free attendance tracker out there.

Overall: Our church started off with Church Community Builder but after the high price and difficulty of use we started looking for an alternative. After I did loads of research we settled on Breeze and I could be happier. They helped get our info transferred for free. The product is actually easy to use. They don't try to up sell everything... in fact there is nothing to up sell. It's all included. My favorite it texting. You can send a one way text to your people. The first 250 of every month is free then it cost a little for every text after.

Online giving- we used to use EasyTithe ( I still love EasyTithe) but we switched over to using Breeze for online giving too. It was easy and had all the same features as EasyTithe but all in one place.

Recommendations to other buyers: Teach you staff to use it early. Teach people one on one. On boarding can be slow but it is worth it.

Pros: Affordability, intuitive to use, can talk to a real person for support, full online reference support and videos.

Cons: Simple, so some features are not as detailed or robust, but with the continued updates, many features have improved with more options. Volunteer Scheduling might be the only feature to consider major improvements to make it easier to use, but it works nonetheless.

Overall: I am a volunteer at Westbrooke Church and a part of the communications team. We have been using Breeze Church Management System for the last 6 months. It is a very intuitive system that puts communication information and tools in the hands of not only the church staff, but to ministry leaders and volunteers as well. Breeze has provided us an affordable and simple way to organize, track, communicate, and report our church directory, giving, events, and so much more! We are excited to be using Breeze at Westbrooke Church!

Pros: Very easy to use and self-teach. Incredible price includes email and phone support - very quick response times. Super helpful staff.

Cons: Nothing really. Few functional things about button positions but very minor personal preferences.

Overall: We have been using Breeze for about four months and all I can say is WOW! I actually don't know how they offer what they do for the price they charge.

It really is a Breeze to use and if there is something you can't figure out for yourself a simple email or call to the support team and they will walk you through it....literally....as when I was having difficulty working out something with events and check-in, representative spent twenty minutes walking me through the actual process so that it was set up according to our specific needs and even showed me more shortcuts to make it easier.

Our previous CHMS provider would only provide phone support if we paid an extra fee on top of what was already fives times more than we pay for Breeze. Email support often took up to ten days to get a reply. Breeze is rarely more than 30 minutes to an hour.

Worried about exporting all your data...me too...I am not great with things like this...well don't worry because Breeze imported all of our people and financial data and in a fraction of the time it would have taken me to do it. Again...WOW!

We are a church of only 550 people and I have not found anything it cannot do up to now and what it does it does very simply. I keep thinking I will find something it cannot do or that is too complicated...but no, not yet!

I find there are some functional things I would personally change e.g. buttons in wrong place on screen that would be better located, but I know nothing about how these things are set up and they just may be something that is not actually possible - ultimately they are small things and probably just my own preference.

Simply put, if you are considering Breeze just do it! Breeze does what it says on the tin and is a pleasure and 'Breeze' to use.

Recommendations to other buyers: Just sign up. It is very simple to use. Has more features than you probably use but can grow into.

Pros: Ease of Use, breadth and depth of database

Cons: User permissions need more options with confidentiality items; ACH not available to pay for registrations except through outside vendor (PayPal, etc).

Overall: Breeze was a new concept to us - a small company big on functionality. Having come from an expensive ChMS that we discovered was big on extras and extremely short on the basics, we had band-aided our ChMS needs over 5-6 vendors, ending up with 4 complete and another partial database! In three months, we have migrated three of our functional databases - texting, contributions, and check-ins - completely over to one Breeze database! And it will soon do everything except Worship Service Planning and online giving for us (which will integrate with Breeze allowing us to maintain one central database)! Breeze has phenomenal Customer Support, and is continually listening to customer feedback and tweaking their system, all the while keeping things "simple" yet with the full depth of a true database. We love Breeze and are excited to roll out the rest of our systems -- calendaring and event planning top the list -- and explore pieces of Breeze that we have never had, even with our more expensive solutions! Way to go, Breeze!

The customization of profiles is also excellent so you can manage what individual users can access.

I highly recommend this church management software.

Comments: Last year our non-profit was looking for a new donor management software and I wish we had found Breeze when we were looking. We've been using an inferior product for the past 6 months, and that is super frustrating!

Breeze is super easy to use, very feature rich and has a very low price point which our ministry needed. They respond quickly to our needs, and even worked with a third-party developer to adjust their API to meet their needs!

I would recommend Breeze to any non-profit, or church.

But the features we use have helped tremendously. Breeze is easy for anyone to use, even those who aren't tech savvy. I love that it's cloud-based so I can make changes from home or on my phone. It's constantly being updated with new features added. There's so much to say, but it really comes down to the fact that it's aptly named...it's a breeze.

Comments: I've used other ChMS, in large churches. When I joined the team at a local church and discovered their type of record keeping, I was shocked! Sticky notes, bits of paper, notations written on the inside of folders. When I asked why a ChMS wasn't being used, I was told the staff was too busy to maintain one...and that the budget wouldn't allow a costly system. Upon discovering Breeze, I encouraged the church to consider it. The lead pastor was immediately impressed with Breeze's offerings! He was "sold" upon learning the monthly cost of Breeze could be saved by discontinuing "upgrades" and modules of other software they were using! I was able to move all the data into Breeze myself, build a small data entry team of volunteers, and establish a dependency on Breeze within just two weeks of signing on! The staff did not have to sit through hours of training, hundreds of recorded videos, or Q and A sessions! They logged in and were able to do what they needed with little to no assistance!

Pros: Ease of use, low cost, quick support, remote check-in.

Cons: I would like to have more control when merging two records (for instance, if I want to keep the cell phone number of Person #1 while keeping the mailing address of Person #2). Currently, all data of one record replaces all data of another record when merging.

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't think too long or too hard. This really is a no-brainer. You will quickly see how easy it is to use and you will gain confidence in all the data you are recording for your attendees and members.

Comments: We had ACS and at a previous church we used Fellowship one. Both were so clumsy that it felt like I needed an IT degree or an IT department to do anything. Then someone suggested Breeze from a discussion on a youth pastor facebook group. I kept trying to find the flaw to this monthly system. There weren't any and it just keeps improving. Launching new features all the time and most recently a new App for iPhone and android. I would rate higher than 5 stars if I could.

Recommendations to other buyers: Just try it for a few months. At $ per month, you can't lose.

When I started testing the demo, immediately I was blown away with how awesome the user interface was - extremely clean and simple to use. So far the software has exceeded my expectations and, when I had an issue, support was responsive (received a response usually within an hour or two!) Support was so great, they actually called me to set up a walk-through to explain a better way I could set up some my events. A+ service.

Pros: It is a BREEZE to learn and use, and volunteers adapt well to it. It is extremely inexpensive for what you get with the program. It has tons of features. I could go into all the features, but for the sake of time, they're ALL genuinely helpful and efficient. It is tailored for specifically for churches, but I would think all kinds of organizations would benefit greatly from it.

As an unexpected bonus, their blog is extremely helpful as well! I tend to devalue most blogs that have 3 trite or self-evident ways to this or that, but every post that has caught my eye has been truly wise, biblical, insightful, and practical. I go back and refer to them as a resource; they're that helpful.

Cons: The only "cons" I've experienced have been small inefficiencies along the way, but they have virtually ALL been fixed days or weeks after I discovered them. (For example: I wish that recipients of a mass text could subscribe/unsubscribe/reply, but my hunch is that they're working on that and that there's some limitation w/ phone companies or something.)

Overall: It is inevitably a common experience in the trenches of a database that the frustrated user thinks of an improvement to the program. This has happened only a few times with me while using Breeze, and on virtually EVERY occasion they have come up with a real solution to my "problem" as the next update. Now it's a joke on our staff; when someone says, "I wish Breeze could do [xyz]," someone will say, just wait a few weeks and they'll come out with an update. And it's happened for all the 9 months we've been using the product.

Breeze is amazing. Most of the time you use an effective product and you simply enjoy the fact that it works. Sometimes your experience with it is so positive that you become an advocate for the company; that's where I'm at. Breeze has helped our church in so many ways that I am grateful and indebted to them! If I met someone who worked at Breeze I would hug them.

Recommendations to other buyers: Brace yourself; Breeze will organize your church for maximum effectiveness. Get ready to see the inefficient holes that Breeze exposes in your church/organization, and use Breeze to patch the holes!

Breeze offers incredible value while filling a great need in the market.

Pros: Easy to use, easy migration from our previous databases, constant improvements, amazing customer service, job opportunities, a highly useful blog, and so much more!

Cons: No cons in our minds.

Overall: We are so grateful for the way Breeze has decided to serve churches with a top quality database system. It seems companies overlook the fact there has always been a market for exactly what Breeze does. My understanding is that nearly 90% of the churches in the world are under 200 in attendance. If that's anywhere near accurate, then it means most of us cannot afford the quality databases that are offered being to us. It just becomes amazing Christian generosity when we factor in all their value added services like constant improvements, amazing customer service, job opportunities, a highly useful blog, and so much more! The company behind Breeze exemplifies the heart of what a Christian company should be in our minds. For that, we say thanks!

Pros: That it is cloud based and the company is always growing and changing. It seems that the people working with Breeze are actually concerned about the souls you are also caring for in your church!

Cons: Some things like not the most updated form on emailing. I slightly get annoyed with having to type out www.(church name)/breezechms . It makes it very difficult to actually get to my church website and not breeze. But it's manageable.

Overall: I have always had great help with customer service. We have had this for about a month now and our church will rely on Breeze a lot.

Recommendations to other buyers: Download the trial first and click around to see if you can make everything happen that you want the program to do.

Pros: The regular release of new features (especially since they never seem to break existing functionality when going live with something new).

Cons: This isn't a criticism exactly--I think they could create a more user friendly reporting interface. The data is all there, but it isn't always intuitive to find it.

Overall: Found Breeze through extensive internet research. What intrigued me was the user friendliness of the platform (admittedly, I have some prior experience in IT), but it seemed to be a perfect Launchpad for migrating our church from manual forms to data-driven.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are doing the migration yourself, be sure you have the right Excel skills to help with the creation of the load files.

Comments: Breeze CHMS is an excellent solution for small to medium size churches. We have been using the software at First UMC El Dorado for just over a year and have been very pleased. The functionality is full-featured and development is continuous with new and helpful features rolled out on a regular basis.

Pros: Immediate client services. They are quick to answer emails and help when you experience a problem. They are constantly asking for client feedback and truly take that feedback to help better the product. Easy of use with Breeze? It's a Breeze - video tutorials make learning easy. We were surprised at how others in the church have jumped on board with the software.

Cons: Yes, I suppose there are some cons for everyone but nothing that would cause us to stop using the software. For me the reporting feature could be a little more robust, enabling me to customize reports a little more. When building form, depending on the amount of information you are gathering on the form, when it is printed it can print distorted. Again not a deal breaker as we are working to move more of our team members away from relying on printed forms. Breeze is always working to improve features.

Overall: We needed a management system that could help us do everything from tracking attendance, scheduling events, online sign-ups, etc... and you guessed it on budget. While some programs offered more features, there was just something about the Breeze team that was different. Breeze was perfect for our needs and the best thing is they listen to our needs and work in every way possible to address them. They are quick to respond to questions and give great feedback.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are a small to mid-size church Breeze is definitely worth checking out.

The website is constantly being upgraded and the customer service is second to none. Our feedback and questions are always welcomed and answered promptly. We love the ease of the website and its integration into our ministries at the church. HIGHLY recommend Breeze and we're so grateful for their ministry!

Comments: I cannot say enough about Breeze. Up until this year we had been using an old database circa what felt like 1960, we couldn't ever imagine moving all of our Microsoft Access information into an on-line platform. All the platforms we looked at were either too complex for the size of our ministry or just seemed so unfriendly. Then we found Breeze. Their customer service is so friendly, you feel like you have friends and family helping you get started, they're prompt to reply and will do whatever they can to help you get things sorted out. It's been so easy to learn, our staff is loving it and best of all even our staff who are not computer savvy find it a breeze (pun intended). We are just thrilled by our choice. I think I also love that they are continually working to make Breeze even better, every time I get an update e-mail i'm so excited to see what feature they have improved.

We're a small ministry of about 10 staff, and I can say this is an incredible, easy and user friendly platform.

Comments: We transitioned to Breeze a few months ago from a much more expensive and burdensome software and we are very happy. The best thing about it is that it's user friendly and you don't have to read a manual because it's instinctive. Breeze is making improvements weekly and they listen and respond to suggestions. I would recommend it to any small to medium size church who wants the staff to be able to utilize the data without having to take classes on how to use the program. :)

Comments: The software is really customer friendly. We have operated with short staff for some time and transitioned over to Breeze during that time. It was very nice to have that go seamlessly and without issue. We have brought on some volunteers and are just now starting to explore and see what features work for us. So far, everything we are using is great and easy to use and understand. We are really excited to see where it takes us!

Comments: The more we use Breeze the better our efforts in reaching our goals. Our main purpose in signing up was to enter the Information Age with a older membership.

Comments: So we recently transferred from I¿m just gonna say it PowerChurch (sorry guys you refuse to adapt to modern software engineering) and I was incredibly frustrated with its cumbersome arduous system I started researching databases. Breeze was constantly in the top 5 lists so we tried the Demo. WOW!!! From the very beginning I was blown away by how easy it was to understand and intuitive and simple it was to learn. The assumption I then made was well it must not be very powerful -- WRONG! Dead wrong in fact.
So let me say we are a small church 265 staff - 1 pastor, 1 PT secretary (I know we are looking to add another pastor). I am not a Computer tech guy, I'm a mac user - love the mac. Not an Apple snob just prefer simple intuitive reliable systems and software. Church is PC based and almost everyone in church are PC users.
We absolutely LOVE BREEZE. Honestly the hardest part about switching to Breeze for us has been adapting to a software system that is intuitive and is designed to anticipate our needs and our way of thinking. What I mean by that is BREEZE is user friendly and organized the way regular people think NOT the way an Engineer thinks; which was what our old system made us do. Learn it's software's logic and language in order to get what we wanted. BLEECHHK!
The beginning - IMPORT data from a .CSV file from old system and BAM! We were up and Running. Instantly, simple and easy to navigate interface. Searches are clean and easy to organize with a array of detailed filters.
Tutorials are easy to access and very helpful.
Customer support - Responsive and timely! - We had started in February and we were entering attendance through the events page. Unbeknownst to us we were creating individual events and so our attendance records were not connected. Therefore every Sunday we had 150 1st time attenders. EEK not good. Customer Support synched up our entire month of February overnight! HUGE CUDO¿S!
Literally every time we use Breeze or we learn something new my secretary and I we laugh out loud because it is so Easy and Powerful.
Cons - I guess there are some. If you are a computer programer/engineer that thrives on arduous logic systems and secretly wish all software systems were like they were in the 90's #.exe - Then Yeah this system is not for you.
I could go on but I have a sermon to write, it is what the name claims to be A BREEZE! Get it - it'll make you smile every time you use it. #happypastor

Comments: This product is easy to use and provided step by step instructions via youtube and help features within the system. It calculates the total giving as you upload individual giving data. Provides you ability to validate your monthly giving.
The text option is wonderful, provides the ability to notify the congregation of meetings, cancelled events, weather, etc.
I'm currently working with the online giving options; however, it does not provide the option for the members to pay for the transaction fees. This statement includes the text giving option as well. It would also be great to have the accounting option, this would make it easier than using quickbooks, I would also be willing to pay an additional price to have a 1 stop shop for church management.

Overall, I would highly recommend this product to fellow church administrators.

Comments: Breeze has been very useful for our church community. Among the things that have made our processes much simpler and more efficient:
* computerized check in for kids and other events
* online directory
* surveys and forms, which allow for new people to fill out a form online
* online giving, tracking and reporting
* Planning Center and Mailchimp integration

I would highly recommend this to every church community looking to streamline their processes. The price is much cheaper than the other software solutions.

I found that this software is limited in its social media features. There isn't a forum/chat feature in Breeze but you can do mass emailings to different distribution lists.

All in all, a great product with great service and very easy to use.

Comments: We have used Breeze for a short while, but it feels like the program we have always used. When you have used a program for awhile it become very easy and comfortable to use, but Breeze begins that way. When we came across questions or we were just use to another program working differently, the customer service was just a few taps on the keyboard away and the responses were very quickly. Not always were the answers exactly what we were looking, sometimes they were better or sometimes the change was already in the works. It is exciting to be part of an ever-changing, always improving program. Most importantly the Customer is the one they listen too.

Comments: We recently switched to Breeze (about 2 months ago) and have found it to be a relatively easy onboarding process, and especially appreciate how customizable the information fields are.

Pros:
-The integration between information about people, their involvement in events, and their roles in the organization.
-Very responsive customer service! I usually get an email back within an hour of when I send it, and the issues are addressed immediately.
-The platform seems poised to continue to add useful customization. New updates have been added probably bi-weekly already.

Cons:
-Capabilities for generating reports based on various information (attendance, geographical location, etc) are still limited. Hoping that those improve as time goes on.

Overall: Very happy we switched to Breeze, and have been thrilled with the capabilities it offers us, especially at such a great price point.

Comments: So totally thrilled with this software. It meets all the needs of managing the information of our church people. It is one place to track names, and all contact info. Easy to make a change or update - and view-able at church or away. As many as need to have access to the information as need to, are able to. And they can see or edit what they are given permission to. We use it also to track our offerings for charitable receipts.
I have had questions, and been unsure how to do something, and every time I contact Breeze, they always answer, or return the call and help me with what i need.

I would HIGHLY recommend this software. It is GREAT!!

Comments: I have almost nothing negative to say about Breeze. It might be the best investment our medium size church (200-300) has made. When we have questions, the Breeze staff is quick to respond. Improvements to the software are rolling out regularly without extra fees or charges. We can access our entire database anywhere we go from any device, and it is EASY! It does everything we need it to do and more. If I think long and hard about some "con" about this software, it may be that their list of features is still much shorter than larger (way more expensive) services. A huge megachurch might find this limiting, but for my church, Breeze is perfect. I can't recommend it enough!

During our assessment of the product each time we encountered what we thought was a shortcoming in the software, an e-mailed question to Customer Service brought a reponse explaining the method to accomplish the task. The product is flexible and offers options for customization. And what a wonderful service that Breeze transferred our data for us. The Customer Service is exceptional!
