Parishioner data is easily accessible and organized. Information can be cross referenced by multiple users. Access to data is easy to control. Information is easily updated by staff.
Information can be bulky. Parishioners are not able to control/update their own data. Updating information can be time consuming. Aspects of the software are sold piecemeal.
To fully utilize this system, we recommend using the cloud based version. The transition from server storage to cloud based has been trying.
We are able to share data digitally throughout the office. If we were to move to a cloud-based format, we would have the ability to allow parishioners to update their own data, which would be a tremendous benefit (we are in the process of making this change). Overall, the database is good, but we are very interested in making the switch to the cloud based format in order to fully utilize the advantages offered by this software.
