Why Buy?And some other Frequently Asked Questions
Beware of software reviews, web pages and surveys that tell only half the truth and lead you to their website. These web pages use unethical practices of tearing down our company while building up their own. We have never built our company by tearing down another company. AVOID THESE WEBSITES. There are reviews/sites on the internet that, supposedly for free, will help you make an informed decision and yet lead you back to our competitors because they spend the money advertising with them. It is a nasty world and ChurchPro with over 21 years in the business rises above these practices. We have over 6000-7000 users worldwide most of which are satisfied customers.
