Likelihood to Recommend

Breeze

Breeze is fantastic for small to medium-sized churches who are looking to increase communication and engagement. A larger church, possibly multi-site, or those with complex needs may need to find an alternative like CCB. For most, however, Breeze strikes a fantastic balance of having lots of control, functionality, and power without being convoluted.

Pushpay

As the fees are incredibly high, I would not recommend smaller organizations with lower budgets. If an organization is looking to separate their electronic giving processing outside of their church management software to allow a consistent user experience regardless of a change from one church management platform to another, Pushpay is a great solution.

Cons

Breeze

  • Lacks the ability to customize some "vital" data, such as family relationship.
  • I'd like to see more customization in "child check-in" ticket prints.

Pushpay

  • Cannot give to more than one fund in a single transaction.
  • Cannot pull data from the church management software. Therefore, if donors give electronically and via cash or check (which is processed directly in Church management software), the donor cannot run one giving statement through Pushpay, which includes all of their gifts. Pushpay does allow check and cash scanning through their platform which can resolve the statement issue, however, they do not have image scanning software, therefore, a visual copy of checks or cash envelopes cannot be exported or retrieved.

Every experience I've had with Breeze's customer support has been... incredible. While being exceedingly polite, they are prompt and helpful. When addressing my concerns, they often anticipated other potential concerns and provide answers to them. Very proactive. The support staff seems to be very knowledgeable. I feel like there's no problem that could arise, that they couldn't tackle.

The access to support is excellent; however, the turnover with assigned account managers has been high over the years, which makes it challenging to build a lasting rapport. There have been some technical and functionality issues communicated over the years which have been received by the account manager. At the time, with responses such as "yes, we know it's an issue, and we're working on that, but we don't have a timeframe." These problems are never resolved, nor are progress reports or follow up ever addressed, then the account manager changes and the cycle starts again.

Alternatives Considered

Breeze

Breeze CHMS is far less expensive and infinitely less complicated than CCB. Yes, CCB is a fantastic platform for large organizations, but it is not very well suited for our congregation with ~400-500 weekly attendance. Breeze, while being surprisingly powerful, remains quite easy to use, integrate into our website and email platform has a great mobile application and is pretty customizable.

Pushpay

  • The giving directly inside of our Church management platform (CCB) was not a great option as the mobile site was not as robust. Due to previous transitions between church management platforms, we did not want to migrate, giving from one software to another, which is both a detrimental change for users engaged, scheduled giving migrations, and administrative resources internally.
  • Online Giving.org was a product that we did not learn about until we had transitioned to Pushpay and is a newer company. That being said, the product is very comparable to Pushpay and also has many features that outperform Pushpay in addition to significantly lower processing fees with no contractual obligation. We are in the process of evaluating whether a transition from Pushpay to Online Giving.Org is better for our organization.

  • Much lower price point than alternatives makes it fiscally responsible.
  • Easy to use platform makes it easy to use for volunteers.
