"Great integrated program for churches"

Opmerkingen: I am not an accountant, but with the unlimited tech support I receive from PCP, I have been able to learn how to effectively use the various modules, including payroll and accounting!

Pluspunten: Various integrated modules: membership, contributions, accounting, etc.

Minpunten: I would like to see more report options.

"For the price, no other church software offers so much functionality."

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

Pluspunten: 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.

Minpunten: 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 like a "window-ized" DOS program. I have heard they are working on a new version based on something more modern, but there doesn't seem to be any hurry to get it done. Consequently, the program lacks things like fully-customizable reports. There are many choices in the kinds of canned reports and what can be included, how sorted, etc. There is also a report writer, but it is not for the faint of heart. There are a number of other ways that the program feels somewhat last century. That said, once you learn the "quirks" of the program (they all have them), you can learn to work with them to get the job done and quickly.

"Power Church Plus "

Opmerkingen: Overall this is an excellent program. It does everything I need it to do, and there is the capability to do so much more that we don’t take advantage of.

Pluspunten: I like this software because it is an all-inclusive church membership program. It keeps up with membership, visitors, and any other category of people we need to follow. It is an excellent financial program and the contribution program integrates between the financial and membership. I have used more expensive programs but this is just as good as the most expensive. Why pay more when this can do everything I need it to do.

Minpunten: The only drawback I have seen is the tax part of the payroll module. The 941 reports don’t seem to be as accurate because of the unique distributions of a minister’s salary. Otherwise everything else does well.

Hi Marcia,

Thank you for taking time to review PowerChurch Plus. We are so glad that the software meets all your needs and you recognize the value of all the features you receive for an affordable price.

As for the Payroll module in PowerChurch, it is designed to handle Clergy Salary tax options without issue, so if you are still having problems with the 941 form's accuracy, give us a call at (800) 486-1800 and a technician will be happy to help track down the source of the problem.

Thank you!

"Disappointed"

Opmerkingen: I have been a user of Power Church Plus since 1986 (dos os). I have stuck with the product because the accounting portion of the product has been excellent all these years. However, the other interfaces have been iffy at best when 1st introduced. The upgrade to windows was painful as well. The Power Church 11.5 version we are using is great, but the check in system is horrible: it does not interface well, it crashes weekly, and the setup and instructions could not be worse. I have used many other programs similar to PC+ and they all have performed better overall. However, the cost for those programs is prohibitive. I am disappointed that Power Church would put out a product like Check In System which does not work and is so hard to use on both server and kiosk ends.

Pluspunten: 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.

Minpunten: 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 instead it tabs to the ok button so that you can hit enter or click with the mouse.
The Check In System is slow and not user friendly IF you can ever get it to work. I have several friends who also purchased the system and they all have the same issues. it does not connect to the server like it should, the check in server locks you out all the time, and the manual does not give any information about how to fix the issue. BE PREARED TO PAY IF YOU WANT SUPPORT. If you decide to call or email support, you will pay to talk to anyone. This is the biggest disappointment in the company. The product does not work and you have to pay additional fees to talk to someone to get it to work. Even then, it will not keep working which requires additional dollars and support.

"Powerful and Solid Church Software"

Opmerkingen: Our church used manual accounting for decades. It was difficult to keep track of income/expenses/payroll and generate meaningful and trusted internal and external reports. We moved to PowerChurch software in 2017 and have had excellent results. The software has solved the difficult to manage issues related to manual accounting and has provided the church with a new confidence in our money management. The software is a bargain and has provided a great return on investment.

Pluspunten: The software provides many set up assistants to get started. There are a large number of reports available for both tax reporting and for internal use, including custom reports. The quarterly and year-end reports are printed ready for signature and submission. The software is comprehensive and extremely flexible, managing complicated issues like payroll and restricted funds flawlessly. The customer support staff know the software and can answer questions quickly. They are also very experienced in accounting and can help users find and correct errors.

Minpunten: The software takes some time to learn for individuals not experienced with accounting.
