RockRMS is the easiest to use, implement, and train on software I have ever used, period!

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: More people are using our Church Management System than ever. Ministry staff interact with it, and the data helps them to build relationships with people.
Event Registration is enabling us to streamline the process of people signing up and not losing that data in the process
Groups as a central tool (instead of just small groups) gives our teams a common tool that provides clear understanding or what smaller groupings of people look like.
eRA is a revolutionary tool for our team. We've never had this level of insight into who is connected to our church
We haven't even fully integrated our giving processes, and we're anxious to leverage Rock's abilities there, as it's WAY easier.

Vorteile:

The most valuable things about Rock to me: 1. Rock is open AND extensible. We no longer have to compromise on the way we manage our ministry. The software can be configured to work with the way our ministry teams need. 2. Rock's community... I'm continually thankful for Rock's community. From Core developers working with and solicting the community on how to make the next version better, to the level of support we get from other churches, it's all top-notch. We previously paid thousands of dollars per year for a lesser product with less support 3. RockRMS' "Shop" has given us access to tools and ways to accomplish the 'fringe' needs that pop up in a supported way. We can say 'yes' to the "Is it possible" question instead of "not with our software" 4. RockRMS has documentation and real-world examples that work for someone on the administrative/management end, such as myself. However, the documentation and examples are also approachable for my ministry and volunteer staff

Nachteile:

The biggest hurdle that I (and my org) had to work to overcome was taking a more involved and invested approach to integrating and using the software in our ministry areas.

RockRMS

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: We have been able to automate some of our processes (i.e. either through the data-automation jobs, connection requests, or workflows), which saves us time and allows us to invest that time into our congregation or other areas of ministry. We have been able to do a greater level of personalization through our communications (email and print). For communications we are able to add conditions to show or hide text based on the person's attributes or details. For example, we email quarterly giving notifications letting the giver know they can access their up-to-date giving statement online. In the email we check if they have a login and if they do we present them with a link to the giving history page, however, if they don't have a login we present different text in the email detailing where they can create an account and then how they can access their giving history--you could also send them a personalized link that automatically has them logged in for a specified period of time or only logged in for that specific page and no other without requiring a full login.

Vorteile:

There are many things to love about RockRMS but the customization and flexibility of its core features and plugins, and its active community are by far the best. The core developers for RockRMS are constantly improving and adding new features, many of which you may not see in other church management systems. Rock has many tools that enable customization and uniqueness for the church and its various ministries (e.g. workflows that can be used for simple registrations, feedback forms, surveys, submission requests, automated communication responses, etc.). The two biggest areas of customization for our church are email communication templates and check-in. We are able to make the communication as personalized as we want (pulling details from their registration, groups, or person record). We also do a lot of custom check-in tags for different events (daily designs for KNL/VBS, notification labels about Promotion Sunday, adding group attributes for table assignments when checking in for an event or dinner, etc.). RockRMS doesn't have a typical support team like other church management systems. If you do need support, the RockRMS Core Team and the Community are very active in both the Q&A forums and online chat channels. This provides the benefit of seeing how other churches and ministries set up and use Rock. RockRMS also has a number of Partners who can also help set up and troubleshoot issues, or even do custom development for your instance of Rock.

Nachteile:

I don't really have any cons with RockRMS but what I have seen for the staff-user side of it, it can seem a little daunting or too technical--especially when transitioning from another church management system. The key to overcome this is training; this can be staff training, directing the users to read the documentation, or watching the training videos provided by RockRMS.

Great for larger churches

4,0 vor 3 Wochen Neu

Vorteile:

If you are a larger church with a high membership count, Rock is fantastic software. There is a steep learning curve, but the customizability makes up for it if you have the resources to invest in employees or third-party developers, who can help you with that.

Nachteile:

Learning curve for Rock is incredibly steep. If you do not have the time, resources, or desire to invest in such a complex product, it may be worth looking for a more user-friendly church management platform.

Too complicated to use unless you have a programming team

3,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: This would work really well at a church with a large IT team, or group of people who can program.

Vorteile:

The best features are probably how customizable it is. We were able to build groups, a database, forms, registration, etc., all in one platform.

Nachteile:

It required so much development and was not plug-and-play. This may suit larger churches, however, with only one IT person on staff, our development process of the platform was rather slow. We needed more robust registration and application systems, calendar and scheduling tools, and a room reservation system and it was going to take us months to develop.

Best decision we have made!

5,0 vor 11 Monaten

Vorteile:

The ability to receive both core updates from the development team of Rock RMS, as well as customise Rock RMS using the built in features, plus perform custom development ourselves if necessary.Child Check-in was improved dramatically for us!The community is amazing as well, with forums, ideas, chats, and recipes on how to set new features up using Rocks customisation features.

Nachteile:

It takes a bit of extra work to set it up for countries outside of the USA.

Fantastic Tool!

Vorteile:

I love how easy it is to use. Also the community is the best I've ever seen. Even if something isn't easy the community will be right there by your side to help with anything you need.

Nothing at this time. It has honestly just been a fantastic resource.

Amazing Community Centric System

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Vorteile:

I love the community behind Rock. You are never alone. There is always someone in the community willing to step up and help at any moment.

Nachteile:

There is nothing that I do not like. RockRMS is not perfect but you can customize it based on your needs.

Leave expensive ChMS systems

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Vorteile:

Have you ever thought it was weird that a private hedge-fund bought both Fellowship One and Shelby and created a quiet monopoly in the ChMS market? Rock is the free, open-source rebellion against monopoly higher prices and lower service for church software. With Rock you have a church database system that allows you to automate ministry workflows and view ministry reports. Want to see "Show me everyone who's attended twice, who's not in a small group, who lives within 2 miles of an open small group". And then you can put that into a list to send an email to them, or make a list for a pastor to call. The best part of Rock is how easy it is to get help and support in the community slack chat. Rock users hang out there all day and answer each other's questions.

Nachteile:

You install Rock on your own server. 1-click, handled-for-you hosting has not arrived yet (2018-10-18). (But it may have by the time you read this) Going from "I'm interested" to "we are setup and running" is the hardest part. You'll probably need a tech-savvy person at your church OR work with a Rock Partner (professional consultants). One common path is take advantage of Microsoft's $3,000 non-profit credits to host on their Azure cloud hosting. So if between saving the money you'd spend on your current ChMS and having effectively free hosting on Azure, there's a big incentive/budget to get yourself over the "we are now setup" hurdle.

Fully featured, incredibly customizable, and a pleasure to work on

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: I have heard from many of the church staff from different ministries that they genuinely enjoy using Rock, and it saved us from using multiple different systems with separate, redundant databases of our congregants. Everyone's jobs are made easier with Rock. The community is incredible and the core development team works closely with us to make sure that any changes we're making are the best they can be for us and for the community. It's an absolute pleasure working with Rock.

Vorteile:

Although I am a developer that has made many customizations to the software, I am consistently impressed with how well-designed all of the features are, and how many of them there are. A church could do incredible things with this software without employing a developer. But when we do choose to customize or build new features, Rock makes this process incredibly easy compared to other systems I have worked on. New versions are released all the time with a plethora of new features. Just when you think Rock couldn't possibly do any more for your church, they announce a new version with things you never knew you wanted but now must have!

Nachteile:

Anything I could mention here would be nitpicking.

Rock RMS well... Rocks!

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: We absolutely love Rock RMS, it's helped us scale from up to 20 locations and we can manage a lot through the interface.

Vorteile:

The thing we link most of all is that it included all the features we were trying to use with multiple different platforms and the ability to customize and automate using workflows.

Nachteile:

The cons are that if you really want to dig in a customize. You have to be willing to dive in a little deeper that the surface level. You should start to make workflows and learn LAVA and SQL to be able to pull in information from your church database.

RockRMS Rocks!

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: The people are friendly and reachable. The Core Team listens and makes changes when needed. By far, so much better than any corporate software company I have dealt with.

Vorteile:

The ability to do so many things without having to be a developer, etc. The community that supports Rock is amazing and answers questions to much faster than any tech company. Out of the box Rock does so much more than your usual church management system, but the fact that you can customize so much of it without having a developer, has truly changed my job as a DB Admin in incredible ways.

Nachteile:

There are some assumptions made about how you should handle your data that I would make differently. So, it is a little frustrating when I run up against those things, but the community is always there to help with a solution.

Perfect for our church. We love the functionality and you can't beat the price.

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: Rock has more robust communications, including texting. Workflows to automate tasks are a huge time saver. Each member's profile page is clean and has everything you need at your fingertips.

Vorteile:

We love the features out of the box but the strength of Rock is that it can conform to the way you do ministry. Most Church Management Systems constricts you to doing ministry their way. Rock fits to your processes and procedures. The automation with workflows is a huge time saver leaving more time for ministry.

Nachteile:

The support system is weak compared to other Church Management Systems. They need to provide a better on-boarding experience. The manuals are good but not everyone learns by reading. I would suggest more videos and examples in the manuals.

Rock is wonderful!

5,0 vor 8 Jahren

Kommentare: The Rock has made keeping up with the people in our church almost effortless. Attendance, membership dates, prayer requests, specific needs, and reminding us of upcoming birthdays are just to name a few things it does for us. With profile pictures, important dates, and connecting people through the relationship feature, this software not only helps formally build our records, but informally we are able to get to know our members and visitors better. I have loved everything about the Rock.

Vorteile:

It's easy to learn how to use and it does everything I would want a church management software to do.

Very Pleased

5,0 vor 8 Jahren

Kommentare: The Rock Church has been using RockRMS for over a year and have been very pleased with the features and the community of users behind it. We would recommend this software to any church large or small. If all church software was built around this same paradigm, it would be so much easier for startups and smaller churches to survive. These guys ROCK RMS.

Vorteile:

Easy to learn and use. Cost effective. Great community support.

Nachteile:

Lacks some of the features of other RMS systems, but they are continually improving it.

Amazing ChMS

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: It has been incredible - I have actually learned a TON of new things using this product. Just the fact that there is a community ready to answer any questions instead of a slow sale's staff saying they'll 'get to it' is great.

Vorteile:

This is a church software unlike you have used before. It is open-source, fast, user-friendly and completely customizable. You can use it out of the box with no issues if you desire and there is a community of churches waiting to help you with any wild questions you may have.

Nachteile:

Check-in must use Zebra printers (which are pricey)

Rock continues to help us grow relationships....

5,0 vor 9 Jahren

Kommentare: The ability to look at my iPad or cell phone on my way to a hospital visit to see everything I need to know about the person before I walk through the door is HUGE! The way this software can be customized is unbelievable! We came from CCB and this is SO much more useful. The fact that it is free is great, but we believe in Rock and how it is designed for the work of the Church so much that we are donating money to further the development. Being a open source project you can look at the code. The top line of code is.... "To God Be The Glory". That says it all. Support is a funny word. With our past experience we had a number we could call and with enough time and the ability to explain the problem to the "right" person we could get a resolution... eventually. Rock itself has no number to call. What they offer is a community of users that are eager to help one another solve problems and develop customizations to the software to make it suit each individual ministry. I have found that with one post to the community forum I have an answer very quickly. There also is now a support company that has created a division to be a "one stop shop" for everything from hosting to support for Rock. ChMS software is just a tool. Our staff would not want to go back to doing ministry without THIS tool.

Incredibly powerful and user friendly cloud based database and community tool for churches

5,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: Improved office productivity, improved communication with our members, and much more

Vorteile:

After years of using two other church database and communication tool solutions, Rock is a breath of fresh air. If far surpasses the previous solutions we have tried. We love it's intuitiveness and ease of use. It has a powerful feature set, yet is adaptable to each church's needs. It provides our members the opportunity to more easily connect with one another and with opportunities within the church.

Nachteile:

We have no complaints at all about Rock. I was concerned at first about the lack of a "tech support" department, but their online guides, user forums, and Rock partners who provide support have completely alleviated that concerned. We love Rock RMS!

The last ChMS you'll need.

5,0 vor 9 Jahren

Kommentare: Rock is a sophisticated CMS with lots of church/relational management functionality built in. Unlike most of the competition, it is highly (ok, completely) customizable and can be considered more like a box of Legos than a completely pre-defined product... What you build with it is completely up to your skill level and imagination. While Rock has most of the expected features of a ChMS/RMS, its "killer app" is the Workflow engine. This functionality lets mere mortals "program" sophisticated operations that would normally take a developer. Combine that with "Lava" (Rock's implementation of Liquid markup) and you have an environment that's extremely powerful yet approachable by non-developers. The only "con" with Rock is that it's based on the .NET MS stack. Though some (LAMP stack zealots) find this off-putting (and it *can* be more difficult to find an acceptable Windows host on which to run this Enterprise application), this technology was chosen for specific reasons and there's no need to reject it based on one's predisposition to LAMP. It's solid. That said, the RockRMS site maintains a list of Windows hosts that run it well.

Kommentare: Rock has been a great fit for us and it is already helping to streamline what we are doing! We are communicating more with people and tracking critical progress better.

Vorteile:

Rock anticipates the needs of churches, but is highly customizable. The support community (manuals and online chat) is very informative and active, so we have been able to answer our questions quickly.

Nachteile:

There is a bit of a learning curve, and some programming knowledge is helpful.

Excellent solution

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Vorteile:

I love that it is open source and the capabilities are on par if not surpass some really expensive commercial solutions. Being open source there are a few options for commercial support and it is extensible so if we want to do something it can't do yet, we can invest on the functionality and contribute it back.

Nachteile:

I would rather Rock RMS be on a linux-based platform, but with not-for-profit discounts from Microsoft, it ends up being okay.

The Best ChMS Available

5,0 vor 8 Jahren

Kommentare: Ok... It's not ChMS its RMS (relationship management system). It's not just providing you with a bunch of inter office reports. It interacts with your church members. Everything from small group sign ups, group leaders being able to email or SMS message one member or the whole group at once. Event registration, online giving, and being able to view and print your own giving history. On the Admin side there are tools like inviting your members to take a disc test, and the results are posted on their profile, being able to mark flag talents in an individual profile, there are obvious things like taking attendance, I love that with reports you can instantly select a filter and merge it to an Avery mailing label! There is so much more! It's all open source, and there is a great community of helpers to answer your questions.
This RMS is amazing and our church loves it!
