What do you like best?
Flocknote is SO easy to use - it's just about foolproof. Truly, anyone can use this and not get lost. Yet at the same time, it's full-featured AND affordable, a combination that is rare. I evaluated 20-25 different texting tools for churches before purchase, and none of them provided the rare combination of ease of use, multiple administrators, affordable pricing, and a large feature set. It's quickly becoming one of my most-used communication tools!
What do you dislike?
Honestly, it's pretty difficult to think of anything I don't like. The only thing that would make it better is if it automatically synced with various church management software programs.
Recommendations to others considering the product
We chose not to add our full database to Flocknote. That has made for a slower roll-out, but it has also kept our costs lower. Gradually, those who are truly interested are signing up.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We needed a better way to communicate quick needs and reminders about events, and Flocknote is perfect for that. In addition, we have a large number of university students in our church, so our campus ministry has been able to effectively keep in touch with them using the platform they prefer. Several times, I've utilized it for urgent, last-minute volunteer needs and I have always received a response. That basically never happens with email, Facebook, and so on.
