Just what we were looking for

Reviewed on 2022/05/22

They are a great partner and worth every penny.

They are a great partner and worth every penny.

Pros

We were very discouraged with a local surveyor who told and there was nothing in the industry that would allow us to have a digital survey of our small cemetery. We only maintain the cemetery and have no remaining sites available for new interests, and we also have a lot of history associated with the current sites. I did some research and found several, and Chronical was the only one to personally email back. After 3 zoom meetings with them and a very clear list of to do's for us, we were on our way. It was a quick process after we uploaded our documents, and within 30 days we were meeting again going over the actual graphical map. We had a couple of changes and they were completed in a short period of time. Currently we use this internally and once we put in the additional info that we have, we will discuss making it public. They are very good at what they do, and you can trust them to hold your hand along the way.

Cons

This was more on our side, as our town has a lot of tree cover, and the company was not in town to walk the cemetery with us and had to overlay our map and you do not see the amazing trees that are in and around. But we still Love the end product..

Response from Chronicle

I had been on the look out for some software to digitise the Ouyen Cemetery records, when I stumbled upon Chronicle it looked like everything I had been wanting so I wondered how a little country Cemetery could ever afford to get something like this. I contacted Chronicle and we arranged a Zoom meeting to see the software, and discuss what we really needed. Chronicle then sent me a project proposal and quote and I was so excited that not only does the Chronicle team do most of the work the price was very very affordable. We thought we might need to apply for a grant to make this happen but we were able to start straight away.Chronicle have been very responsive throughout the process, from change requests to any assistance I may have needed and just general enquiries. I am extremely happy we have chosen this company, we have not been disappointed.

Pros

This software does everything we need and more. It is called Simple Cemetery Software for a reason and it really is simple to use, no training required. This software can stay simple with a small amount of information but it can become a single information mangement system, holding all our documentation both public and private making and managing our Cemetery records accessible, quick and portable and that is our goal over the next six months.

Cons

There are no Cons at this early stage, we have only just gone online with basic inormation for the public and we are working on adding information and images for the public and also our ROI information and other paperwork into the back end to eventually becoming our single information management system.

Response from Chronicle

Digitised mapping of the Broadford Cemetery

Reviewed on 2021/08/24

Mainly the secure storage of documentation, and accurate mapping of the Cemetery interments.

Mainly the secure storage of documentation, and accurate mapping of the Cemetery interments.

Pros

As a small cemetery with a variation of records, it has been difficult for both parties to migrate all the data accurately. With cooperation from Chronicle our volunteer Trust members are gradually working through the data entries, negotiating better methods of entry and presentation, and looking forward to having a very useful program.

Cons

Initial integration of data was difficult, more due to our presentation of information. The date system is limited, as it will only publish full dates, ie, day:month:year. However, many of our dates only have the 'year' of birth and or death. Mapping of vertical Niche walls needs needs a better design, this is a work in progress.

Working with the team at Chronicle has been a very positive experience. They are very professional and friendly. I look forward to our continued relationship as they grow and innovate.

Pros

The ease of working with Chronicle is extremely beneficial. We are able to assign new managers to make edits or add information without significant training. The price point of the software makes it an attractive option for our cemetery of 6,000 plots. I highly recommend considering Chronicle.

Cons

There are some glitches in the software that the Chronicle team is quick to resolve. Such as the searches not working quickly. There is not much to dislike about this product.

Response from Chronicle

Hi Matthew, thank you very much for your kind review.
It's our pleasure to be working with you and your team in digitizing St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Parish cemetery.
We hope to always improve our product and services to get 5 stars, so we will continue to give our best.

Best regards,

Carlsruhe Cemetery Trust was the first Cemetery to use Chronicle

Reviewed on 2020/07/09

Easy to use, very daunting for novice in using a computer novice

Pros

Carlsruhe Cemetery Trust was the first Cemetery to use Chronicle. As Secretary, I was given the task of putting all our information into Chronicle, which I found very daunting as I am a novice in using a computer. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] understood this and not only spent one on one time with me, but was always available to support me.

Once I had put in a number of client records I found the app easy to use and correct when I made mistakes.

Cons

There is now no problem with using the site and I would recommend Chronicle to any other Cemetery Trust thinking of using it.

Response from Chronicle
