Value for Money

Pros: Data Base and Accouting are integrated

Cons: Difficult to navigate. Crashes frerquently while trying to print reports, very poor customer service, texting iwithin the program is useless,unrealistic, and over stated, poor email program.

Overall: We are a smaller Church of 150. We invested in CP in 2009 for $. The learning curve was so steep that we were unable to use it right away. Because the learning curve was so steep, it requires a lot of time just to learn how to use it. I and others in our church are computer savy. I use powerful integrated CRM for my personal business. One of the Elders is employed by the State in IT. By the time we had it up and running CP was on sale for 1/2 off. They did not honor the sale, but they did provide an additional unlock key which we have yet to use. We upgraded our PC and the CP disk would not load, we called support, and even though we had the keys and the disk, we had to purchase the 2014 upgrade for an additional $. Although packed with features the program is not user friendly at all. CP advertises texting capabilities, but you almost have to be a programer to utilize it. We invested in another program to communicate with our congregation. We still use CP as a DBASE and accounting program. But if I had to do it over again, I would not invest in CP. Customer service is not good.

Recommendations to other buyers: For the money look some where else until they make this program more user friendly

Customer Support

Comments: Churchpro while based on sound principals and a some what user friendly interface, has some down falls. The instruction manual lacks adequate information to fix errors, but you can by support for some $$$ which some churches can not afford every year. The software itself has some issues.
For example, one missed or incorrect entry can play havic on the entire data base. We have lost information and had multiple corrupted tabled for one bad entry. So what is a bad entry, wrong date format, making corrections caused us to loose 4 plus months of data. Recently, we came into church opened the program and it intermingle all of our data, kids were reassigned to different parents, birthdays were all incorrect, and the list goes on. For three years we have tried to work with the program and reread the manual making sure we accurately entered information, but it still failed to work properly. It is a great idea, but we believe the issue is the outdated parodox engine running the software. One incorrect entry should not corrupt an entire database. If these issues were fixed, then this would in my opinion be one of the best church software packages on the market. The pros are that for the initial price it includes a all in one resource for churches. It also has a windows feel user interface. Which makes it more user friendly. The security features are nice for limiting access to specific users. The customer support is good, but expensive for smaller churches. If working properly the accounting side of software is perfect for churches.
