It’s not every day that a company polls their customers and is overwhelmed with positive feedback. That’s exactly what happened when Icon Systems did a recent survey of their customers to gather information on what their customers most liked about their software. The results indicated that 96.4% of customers were extremely satisfied with their IconCMO church management software (chms).

“We like to stay in touch with our church software customers to find out what’s working and what’s not,” says Bill Gifford, president of Icon Systems, Inc. “When we decided to survey our customers, we weren’t sure what to expect. The results told us that, other than customer service, being cloud based was the number one factor in churches being satisfied with their software.”

After polling churches, Icon found the following qualities were best loved by their customers:

In July of last year, Icon released a fully-functional, real-time IconCMO church softwareiPadwebapp that offered churches–from church plants to mega churches–a way to simplify church management; they followed up a few weeks later with an Android web app to make sure they covered all their bases. The iPhone app forIconCMOLite is also a popular option for mobile phone access.

“The system is VERY easy to use. We are a start up church plant with no full-time staff so being able to have multiple users access the system over the Internet is a great feature. I had to check the balance of an account the other day and just logged on with my smart phone and got what I needed,” comments John, a church treasurer.
