The ease of using this software is one of the best features. It makes posting contributions fast and accurate. For us, posting Contributions before ParishSOFT took at the minimum a day but usually a day and a half. With ParishSOFT it take an hour.

Drawbacks:

The only thing that I think is needed is the ability to add a new family from the detailed contributions posting page. It would be faster if we did... Read more

Our experience with ParishSOFT Family Suite has been extremely positive. ParishSOFT understands the true meaning of customer service. They are easy... Read more

Connect Now is absolutely awful!

Benefits:

The online version is awful. Stick to the desktop version.

Drawbacks:

Online version literally takes 12-16 seconds per mouse click, which makes it virtually impossible to get anything done.

Summary:

I have used the desktop version for over 10 years. It wasn't perfect but it worked. We were forced to get the online Connect Now version and it is... Read more

Initial integration was a breeze. Uploaded a copy of our database and P/S transferred it to the cloud in one day. Now employees can access database from anywhere, even home, especially useful during the Covid-19 pandemic when everyone was locked down.

Drawbacks:

As administrator, when setting up a new employee, I like to test out the email function to make sure it works. In the beginning, P/S only supporte... Read more

Summary:

We are tracking our parishioners easier now and have uploaded most of the Religious Education and Sacramental Records to the cloud.

Full-featured church database management system. There are many very slick programs out there, and some even claim to have church accounting. But they mostly mean contribution tracking and nothing else. If you want a program DESIGNED with churches in mind (unlike QuickBooks, which tries to be everything to everyone, but is truly awkward for real church accounting), and you don't want to have to piecemeal the accounting tasks between several programs, AND you can't afford Shelby Systems, ACH, or any of the other full-featured programs, then PC+ is for you. I can handle absolutely everything for church accounting with the program: contribution tracking, accounts payable (bill paying), payroll (including the ability to print or electronically file 941s, W-2s, etc.), general ledger, financial statements, etc. I have used about a dozen different programs for church accounting, and none even comes close to what PC+ does for the price. Yes, there is some learning curve, as there is with any program. Don't make the mistake of thinking that an "intuitive" program will cause you to handle accounting correctly. NO PROGRAM, NO MATTER HOW SLICK, WILL TURN A NOVICE INTO A GOOD CHURCH ACCOUNTANT. You have to know what you're doing regarding non-profit accounting, ministers' taxes, etc. if you're going to get it right. No software can change this. So if you understand enough to correctly handle church accounting, PC+ will help you do all of it.

Drawbacks:

Though the developers regularly update the program to fix bugs and add features, it is still based on an old database standard, which makes it feel... Read more

Summary:

Helps me do full-charge bookkeeping for more than a dozen churches effectively.

The accounting module is excellent. The membership module is above average. For the cost, there is nothing that compares. The library module is great for a church or pastor's library.

Drawbacks:

The printer interface is below average. The interface between PC+ and Windows is still not up to the times. The enter key does not enter, but inste... Read more

It is nice to keep all the information in one spot. I can look up a member's info and it is all at my fingertips. It is very straightforward without a lot of bells and whistles. If you make a mistake entering contributions it is very easy to fix.

Drawbacks:

There are multiple ways to do one that which can get confusing because they all give you slightly different results. It isn't very asthically plea... Read more

Summary:

I use it as a church secretary on a daily basis. I enjoy it but would love to see it be more user friendly.
