A fantastic database tool that really is designed around how a church wants to use it.
WE've really valued having church suite. It means that all our information is easily accessible by church leaders, and its ability to integrate calenders, events and website mean that there are huge time savings in only having to do things once.
We've really valued using the rotas which was such a time consuming job before, and allows people to see what they are doing months ahead, and to organise themselves, manage swaps, etc.
We've gone at it slowly, adding different modules bit by bit rather than trying to do everything at once. We've also had people working on understanding the new modules (making use of the free trials) so that we know how they work before going live with them.
We've also appreciated the training which has helped us understand how to do what we do better, whilst giving us the confidence to run with new modules. It was definitely time well spent.
Whilst some of our older church members were daunted at first, we've been patient, giving lots of opportunities for them to come with tablet or phone and learn how to use it. Six months down the line, only one of our 199 users has given up and opted out. We're glad we've stuck with it despite the early hesitation of some.
