"Donarius Was a Game Changer For Us"

Comments: Donarius helped us move beyond Excel spreadsheets, greatly simplifying our bookkeeping processes, giving us greater accuracy and helping us generate EOY reports effortlessly.

Pros: Donarius is super easy to setup and use. As with any new software, there is a learning curve, but it isn't long. My wife does our bookkeeping and she had no trouble at all getting used to the software and learning the ins and outs of it.

Cons: My least favorite aspect of Donarius initially was the very basic user interface. It isn't pretty. But the functionality overcomes that part. After all, it's what it does that matters, not just how it looks.

"Simple and easy to use, great support"

Comments: The ease of use every week with absolutely no frustration gives a peace of mind that is hugely valuable.

Pros: What I like most about Donarius is its simplicity and ease of use. Prior to finding Donarius, we had a church finances program that was very expensive, and tech support was outrageous. Tech support comes with the purchase of the Donarius software, no extra charge. I can enter each week's giving in just a few minutes, post to each individual's account, and produce a weekly report with ease. Also, generating year-end giving statements is as easy as the click of a button. If I need an interim report on an individual's giving or a summary of some kind, tech support is quickly available if I need help. I recommend Donarius highly.

Cons: In the years I have been using Donarius, there has been no negative.experience.

"Best value for money and top notch support"

Comments: 12 out of 10. I have been delighted with this software and its upgrades to meet changing requirements. Great value for money as well.

Pros: This software is easy to use and has the best customer support I have ever experienced in any software I have ever used. I have used Donarius for over 20 years now.

Cons: There is nothing I do not like. Whatever my need, the software could handle or support helped me figure it out.

"Donarius for Art Gallery of Northumberland"

Comments: The Art Gallery of Northumberland purchased Donarius to provide better and prompter service to the Gallery's donors and members. The product is easy to install. It was straightforward to customize the product to use the Gallery's name and logo on printed materials. Reporting on the overall membership was at times problematic, in part because the person doing the reporting was not that familiar with the reporting capability. The one time we had a problem with the software - it seemed to be reverting to a previous logo on occasion - we got very quick and helpful support that had the problem corrected in minutes. The interface is outdated - it is not point-and-click graphics, but instead looks line an old-fashioned "line command" interface. All things considered, it provides good value for the money.

Pros: Donor tracking capability. Donation totals and reporting for tax reporting.

Cons: Interface is old-fashioned. Does not provide integration with other client-management software.

"Donarius may be just right for you."

Comments: Donarius offers a wide-range of features but it does all come with a cost.

Pros: Donarius offers a wide-range of interface-ability. It works with more church management programs than I can list here. One of the best features it has is the ability to print a fabulous color directory. No need to pay an arm and a leg for a nice color photo directory.

Cons: Like most church management programs, it can be expensive, especially for smaller struggling church communities. Yet the need to manage your church remains, and the costs go up.
