Software Advice™, a Gartner company, claims to be “the world's leading information technology research and advisory company.” The company can offer free consultation and recommendations to buyers, as vendors pay for the resulting qualified leads. Congregational leaders investigating church management software (ChMS) can explore the 25 ChMS highlighted on the website independent of consultation. Sort by price, reviewer ratings, denomination category, church size, deployment-whether on premise or cloud-and platform-Mac, Windows or Linux. Most helpful and unusual for this kind of list, you can click on the number of reviewers next to the ChMS 1- to 5-star rating, and read real-user reviews. Reviewers write a paragraph under “Likes Best,” “Likes Least,” and “Recommendations.” They give a star rating for ease of use, functionality, product quality and customer support.
