In the sea of all the church software options there is a best one out there for your church. Which one might surprise you.
The best software for your church is… the one you’ll use. At the end of the day these different software packages are full of bells and whistles, and yet almost universally they go under utilized. Worse yet, many have stress full and anxiety ridden experiencing maintaining records for their church.
How to Choose the Right Software
Always demo the software before you buy it. While watching/using the software imagine how the least technically savvy person in your ministry would feel about using it.
Would they be comfortable looking up a members phone number or email? Would they be able to help with data entry (visitors or contributions)? Would they be able to access the software at home as well as at church?
Could They Use It?
If so you are well on your way to selecting the best software.
We – as software companies – do not like to acknowledge that many of our customers under-utilize the rich features that we are so proud to have built. Everyone should be able to get the most out of your church software, not just the resident tech whiz.
So make sure you ask yourself – “Is this easy enough for us to use?”
After all, if you won’t use it now then you won’t want to use it later.
