We use Shelby Financials for our Accounts Payables and Credit Card statements. We have found it to be very reliable. The customer service support has been excellent. The techs know their stuff and will work to the very end to come up with a solution for us.

Pros

I like the ease of the software. It's fairly easy to navigate and meets our needs as a church. I like the cues when I am on the wrong account number or I did not put the right amount in the que. It has a great in balance/out of balance feature that prevents a lot of error. And, when there are errors, it's pretty easy to make corrections.

Cons

Some of the drop downs seem to move quickly before I can make a selection, such as choosing a category on the drop down on the Posted Journals. I can't seem to be able to click fast enough before it disappears.

ShelbyNext Financials is clean, once learned, easy to understand & navigate, and it communicates across other Shelby products.

Pros

What I like most about Shelby Financial is the communication between the other Shelby platforms, once I learned the program's logic I like it more than our previous accounting software, and the Outstanding customer service.

Cons

Some of the report formatting is not my preference.

Poor accounting support.

Poor accounting support.

Pros

Lots of features, capabilities to expand. Workflows are great!

Cons

Shelby financials-
Customer support can’t give us GAP advice; if I had known There were not accountants we could call we wouldn’t have purchased.

We were oversold. The capabilities are great but we would rather have quality over quantity - seems when we call to ask questions we get different support specialist who have different opinions on how to accomplish our goal, none of which actually help in the big picture, so we are left “figuring it out.”

Forms
We have to try to creat work around a to create forms that would allow us to sell merchandise. Too bad there’s not an integrated system that talked with Financials - that specifically was told to us.

Calendar
I cannot believe the calendar will not display more than 3 months at a time on the app - crazy! It too doesn’t have similar feature to share events via website or other apps.

Overall, it’s expensive, it’s not doing what we need it to, customer service has been sketchy, however we feel we’ve spent sooooo much time in it that we can’t leave it bc we have too much time invested- in other words we feel strapped into a corner.

Honestly, we switched so that we would have cloud based software. It's nice to be able to do my work anywhere.

Pros

This software is easier to use than Shelby v5. I like the way in interfaces with ShelbyNext Membership.

Cons

The reporting function still has a pretty steep learning curve.

ShelbyNext Financials

Reviewed on 2019/09/08

Pros

I have been using ShelbyNext Financials only for a year, so I believe there are a lot still to learn; but so far I like it a lot.
It's non accountant user's friendly, which help Financial Dept let the others see their updated budget information; with the setup of the correct security parameters
In general all the configuration is really easy, while modifying the COA you'll be able to see the levels on the screen which it will help to setup new accounts.
The option to have the reports in different formats is useful.
Importing the annual budget, the credit card into ShelyNext saves a lot of time and reduce the errors.
There is a lot of features that you'll be discovering as your needs appear.
In my position, have access from anywhere to the accounting is awesome.

Cons

The cons that I found is the exporting in excel, most used for finances; the reports include additional lines and columns that you basically have to re-format the entire report.
We are coming from v.5 which was giving us the option to refresh in excel at any time the monthly balances, with ShelbyNext we have to export in excel every time an once again re-format the report.
No much information for the Ad Hoc Reports, which are extremely hard to understand and use them; reports from Payroll relate to employees information only, and reports from Purchasing Management (no reporting at all) are important to us and ShelbyNext doesn't give options.
We would like to be able to have consolidate Financial Reports for the different campus we have directly from the software.
