Customer Testimonials

"The ConnectNow version is way nicer than the desktop accounting we were using. It's easier, reports are have much more detail, I can get more data out of them, end of month is one simple click, and no journal entries for payroll! I can't wait for the end of year I don't have to download tax tables, all I have to worry about is making the books balance!"

"I am in love with the CMS accounting program and with the problem-solving staff. I remember the days before CMS and they were a nightmare. This has made the end of the year taxes something I don’t dread anymore!"

"I wanted to take a few minutes to let you know that purchasing CMS has been one of the best decisions we could have ever made for our church. I've worked with enough different programs to know that CMS is, by far, the best and most user friendly. Since going through the tele-training, I can say with 100% validity that the CMS system is everything we were looking for and more! It is easy to use, makes technical sense and has high end reporting functionality; the list of positives goes on and on. Finally, after nearly four years of not being able to productively work with our old program, we now look forward to using CMS every day! Thank you, again for making such a huge impact to an important part of our job responsibilities. We now have the ability to make class rosters, give Ministry Leaders information on people and have accurate membership figures for our Pastor and Session. This program is a tremendous investment for our church and has taken our record keeping to quite possibly the highest standards available."

"We love using the CMS software! It is straight forward and easy to use, especially when we have to make changes or print statements. Our payroll process is so much more efficient. The thing we like most of all is the fact that whenever we call support, we speak with someone right away or get a call back within minutes. They are always patient, courteous and professional."

"At church board meetings we would spend 45 minutes to an hour talking about the financial reports and trying to understand them. After we purchased Church Management Solutions Ledger and Payables we would only spend 3 to 5 minutes because all our questions were answered. It is worth it to purchase the program for the time it saves in our meetings."

"My colleague, Kaye and I absolutely love using the Church Management Solutions software! It is the only software that churches should be using for their church management needs! "

"CMS is a very user-friendly database and makes tracking people and activities easy. I found it so useful that I have recommended it to friends in other churches. I especially like the custom report feature - (i.e., create a list of all the members in ZIP code A, who joined before 1980, pledge more than $50/week and are retired.) My favorite feature of all is the friendly, timely and accurate technical support. This support ensures that everything runs smoothly and is invaluable."

"I LOVE CMS! It provides all kinds of data, reports, and information that our pastor and church council needs to plan. The information CMS programs provided were invaluable in the planning [of our new parish center]...things like membership attendance, pattern of giving, and projections for future growth.

Most of all, I like the support from CMS that's helps me do my job in the most proficient way. The people are always helpful and friendly...no question is too stupid - they treat you with respect. Not only would I recommend CMS to another church, I have done so!"

"I have used CMS for 15 years. It is so easy to use and the technical help is super. I had very few computer skills and I had no trouble learning to use CMS. Each module has helped me improve my efficiency and has been a great asset to the church staff. I would highly recommend CMS and have done so quite a few times to other churches."

"As someone who works extensively with CMS, I am always very pleased with how the system functions. It is easy to manage and simplifies my life a lot! Every update that comes in is another wonderful improvement where I didn't necessarily even anticipate one. I particularly like the speed updates - they save so much time. Also, the people behind the scenes at CMS are very helpful if we have questions. I would gladly recommend CMS to any church considering installing a database."

"We have been recommending CMS to other churches and non-profits for many years now. We have been using CMS for more than 20 years. We highlight the fact that CMS handles all our membership record keeping and financial record keeping needs, as well as the ability to obtain just about any report you would need and the communication ability with Microsoft® Word and Windows."

"CMS was already being used when I started at the church 11 years ago, and coming from my previous company where the software was definitely behind the times, I was very pleased with CMS. The fund accounting aspect of the finance software is important to our church. Whether it be finance, contribution or membership, CMS makes it easy to get the information I need. I appreciate the regular upgrades to the software and the responsiveness to customer requests."

"CMS exceeded my original expectations - all my queries are fully answered! CMS saves me time - I e-mail my question/s before lunch and right after lunch I already have the answer, or I e-mail before I finish work and voila! all the answers are there first thing in the morning! Money? I spend less time dwelling on a problem so the church gets their worth from my efficiency! I have already recommended CMS to another church and they are very satisfied!"

"CMS is very easy to use. They are always there to help us... no question is too big or too small. I like that I have the ability to sort and do the reports that are required for the Annual Presbyterian Report. Attendance is great to track both Sunday School attendance and worship attendance. It is also a great way to track visitors. It is so easy to learn that volunteers can quickly learn it and use it."

"My implementation of CMS has gone very smoothly. All of the stories about CMS were understated and the transition has gone very quickly. Thank you."

"We have been using the CMS Finance, Payroll, and Contributions programs for about 19 years. After leaving CMS for another vendor's Membership and Attendance programs, we recently returned to CMS because of the flexibility of the program and the customer service. We appreciate the helpfulness and cheerful attitudes of the employees. Their great customer service is only one of the reasons we have continued with their programs. We also appreciate their working with us so we can get the reports we need."

"First Presbyterian Church has been with CMS for many years. Their products continue to be a great addition to our organization, allowing our office staff to work more efficiently. There are many reasons I recommend CMS to other churches when asked. The training was one to one and made the start up of a new module easy. They keep us informed and up to date with program updates. Support is always just a call away and the response is quick and professional. We especially like that they have kept up with technology by offering tracking of email addresses and multiple phone numbers for our members. The ability to send email directly from our membership database has made communication with committee members much simpler. It's easy to understand why we so greatly appreciate their products and people!"
