It highlights the get-started basic questions: How much does ChMS cost? Go with a cloud-based or a locally installed system? What features and functions are most important for your congregation? Are you looking for a solution to handle accounting and payroll? Manage a membership directory, maintain a website and track attendance? Sprinkled in the narrative are specific ChMS examples, such as ParishSOFT, designed for Roman Catholic parishes.
