"Proclaim's On Screen Bible is Super Helpful!"

What do you like best?

We love using Proclaim to show a bible on screen while we present our weekend church services. It's been a very helpful tool after our Lead Pastor decided that he would like it to look like an actual bible when we're going through a bible verse on screen instead of just plain text. So far so good!

What do you dislike?

Proclaim is a little difficult to navigate if you've never used it before. You become more accustom to it after a couple times of playing around with it, but I wish it was a little more user friendly in its organization. I also wish it had even more features churches could use for weekend presentations!

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would give Proclaim a try if you've always wanted an authentic-looking bible on screen to remind people that it's a real book! You won't regret it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed an on-screen Bible for our congregation to engage in during a weekend service. It's been the perfect tool for great interaction with a real-looking bible on screen, while also providing readers with and easy-to-read bible during church!

"Proclaim Takes Church MultiMedia To All Levels"

What do you like best?

The Faithlife Proclaim multimedia presentation suite is a great tool to present the flow of service on mutilplatform devices, be Mac or Windows or online. the user experience is hands down the best that I have had using this particular type of software.

What do you dislike?

I truly dislike the following features of the Faithlife Proclaim software suite, 1. The ability to sync is erratic. If I have multi users editing a session, I am not certain as to what is the latest version . 2. The crashing in the Mac loses all previous edits. Faithlife should work in sessions savings so one does not have to start from scratch if a crash happens..fortunately it does not happen often.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Hands down one of the best multimedia presentation suites for ministry!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The ministry needed a multimedia presentation suite that was better than Keynote and PowerPoint. Faithlife Proclaim is the answer. The suite give the ministry a smooth and upscale worship experience that enhances the overall service. Our worship leaders and ministers enjoy how they can deploy modern technology to enhance their message.

"Great Experience, Huge Functionality, Reasonable Price"

What do you like best?

The title really says it all: we're very happy with the great functionality. It's usable across all platforms, syncs flawlessly, allows for all kinds of service configurations.

What do you dislike?

It's a big program. I would prefer larger, more significant updates, rather than multiple smaller ones.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you can afford it, go for it! In my opinion, you will not find better church presentation software out there. This recommendation comes after extensive research.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Best church presentation software out there! The service has improved on and outpaced all others. There's a huge advantage for me as a senior leader to have integration with Logos Bible Software. As the Faithlife family of products grows, I expect even more integrations to become available.

"Has specialized features and a user interactive and easy to use design for amazing presentations"

What do you like best?

It is very intuitive and easy to put together. A beginner can use it as well as an older member of the church to create a presentation. While running the presentation all you have to do is click forward or backward so it is very easy to use for older members of the congregation. You can also integrate song lyrics and Bible quotes easily rather than using a separate software to put everything together.

What do you dislike?

When syncing from a different computer it still takes some time to show up on a different computer. If you are working on a different laptop this can be a problem sometimes. So we would have to share the file in another manner. Additionally cost can be an issue because even thought it is only 18.99 a month the artwork subscription costs extra. The basic artwork is usable but the extra subscription makes the presentation pop. It is expensive though for a smaller service.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It dramatically cuts down on the time it takes to prepare a sermon and presentation. It allows for our church to spend more time focusing on the content and the service itself rather than spending time integrating different softwares together. Additionally we can save all of our presentations for future use and for other churches to refer to as well.

"Easy yet full-featured worship presentation software"

What do you like best?

Proclaim's unlimited user license and cloud-based system, combined with its templates and included graphics, make Proclaim the best worship software for most small, mid-size and large churches. The support is superb and new updates are being rolled out at least once or twice a week.

What do you dislike?

There is some lack of flexibility at times, and it lacks a module for liturgy. There also are few graphics which truly appeal to more progressive congregations.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be sure to sign up for the support emails from faithlife so that you'll get great Q&A from users. Also, note that they have several other features built in - podcasting, newsletters, and bulletins.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had a much harder time with our worship software when we had to pay a per-computer license. Proclaim's ease of use makes it easier to get many people contributing content.

"Prclaim review"

What do you like best?

We like that we can provide a good presentation experience to our audience without having to invest too much money in media assets purchases

What do you dislike?

The stability of the software itself can sometimes be an issue sometimes. The presentation sometimes can lag a little bit.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely Proclaim is a software to consider. As with any other software, testing is key and not all software is meant to be used by all people so finding a software that you can use and can provide a good return on investment is key. Proclaim when it comes to audience presentation is at the top of the list.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Primarily we are able to solve not having to invest a lot of capital in the design of media assets which Proclaim provides within their subscription service

"Proclaim has been a wonderful tool for our Church"

What do you like best?

I would say the things I like the most about Proclaim are the ability to edit and add from anywhere and the ability to edit when live.

What do you dislike?

We haven't had many issues but there have been a few glitches. This past Sunday some of the slides went missing and it wouldn't sync to the cloud to grab them. This one 1 Sunday in the past year so I still don't feel it's a deal breaker.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take advantage of the trial

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Proclaim is a better presentation software than using PowerPoint..

"Proclaim: A nice program for beautiful church service presentations"

What do you like best?

Proclaim is by far the best presentation program for churches there. It offers a user-friendly interface, really well designed elements for slides and very good integrations as the bible on the screen, which allows you to integrate a verse on the slide with just write the passage text. In addition, they offer a remote control mobile app that can be used during presentations of musical letters, it can be downloaded from the google play store for android or app store for iphone. The letters can be brought directly from Song Select (by CCLI) and not having to type them. Proclaim can also store your presentation in the cloud, so you do not have to never use more than a USB stick, this is a very useful tool in a day like today. I also love that you have the possibility to can record the service and share it with other brethrens that could not attend to church.

What do you dislike?

The program is a bit expensive, but still you can have a free 30 day trial, so you may decide your mind. An inconvenience with this program is that it happened already that when a guest speaker brings his own .ppt powerpoint presentation on a flash drive this presented some little problems. The process you have to go through is to import and convert the powerpoint slides to images. It was not that possible because the slides were cut off at some parts deleting scriptures and other important text when converted to images, so what you must end up doing is run powerpoint software separately.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Many websites offer a free download of Proclaim. Proclaim most used versions are 1.8, 1.5 and 1.1. Proclaim is a Multimedia program type. The installation file name of the most common tool is ProClaim.exe. The real architect of this program without cost is Logos Bible Software. I preferably recommend anyone to download the program directly from the developer's website. You can have a free 30 day trial and no credit card is needed, I would reccomend anyone to use this option before purchasing the software to test if it will fit to what you church is needing. If you are already a designer, this program can be a very useful tool to can explode your creativity.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Proclaim lets you to work with all your team from wherever they are able to work better. You do not have no need to email them any large files or scramble around with big large files on a flash drive. It also connects with many of the tools that most of the time people already use, like grace media, Planning Center Online, or CCLI SongSelect.
