"Realm is so user friendly.  The seamless transition from one area to another is a time saver.  The ease of creating groups and printing rosters and other reports is wonderful.  And Realm looks good too.  Realm has many other strengths over Church Helpmate."

Church doesn't always happen at church.  Connect with and share what's going on at your church anytime.  Contact your small groups, coordinate group activities, RSVP to church events and meetings, manage your giving, update your information, and more.

Manage and grow your ministry with Realm's flexible, insightful, and useful reporting tools

Just like with Church Helpmate, you can use Realm alongside accounting software products (such as QuickBooks, Peachtree, etc.).  However, Realm provides an optional full accounting add-on that would consolidate everything into one, fully integrated system.  Realm Accounting was designed specifically for churches and is a true fund-based system.  No longer will you experience the frustrations and headaches of trying to force a general business accounting product to work for you as a church. 

We take extreme measures to protect your data.  Our 40 years of trusted ministry service and reputation depend on it.

See how Realm is helping churches just like yours to impact their ministry in real, meaningful ways.
