A step-up in interactive cemetery mapping

5.0 3 weeks ago New

Comments: I am impressed with the ongoing and regular upgrades to the database and mapping. Visitors to the cemetery and family researchers have also given their compliments on the database and mapping. Support staff are appreciated for their promptness in replying to enquiries and requests.

Pros:

The aerial imaging and attached photos of cemetery graves makes it feel like you are visiting a loved one's final resting place in person.

Cons:

Refresh is required regularly when using the search bar

The Best For Us

5.0 5 months ago

Comments: Brilliant. There have been some small issues and we are still getting used to it but the Chronicle team are always helpful, responsive and pro-active.

Pros:

Mapping & records management. Cost effective for our business.

Cons:

Runs slow at times but likely due to server distance and local bandwidth consumption.

Alternatives Considered: Plotbox

Reasons for Choosing Chronicle: Previous software was extremely outdated, no longer being updated and could have failed without warning if a solution hadn't been found. N.B. not sure if the selected software in the field above was our product.

Switched From: Evotix

Reasons for Switching to Chronicle: Price was much more competitive with very little (if any) discernible difference in features.

Amazing software that is constantly being improved!

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: The software is rich with features and intuitive to use, for administrators and groundskeepers alike. Implementation was flawless. Customer support is amazing.

Pros:

Customer support and the development team are amazing. They continually upgrade the software and listen to feedback from customers.

Cons:

Absolutely nothing. At purchase, it provided a cost effective method to have mapping and data management but has since grown into a very robust software that has retained its low pricing.

Alternatives Considered: Plotbox , Cemify , Grave Discover Software and CemSites

Reasons for Choosing Chronicle: No mapping functionality. Limited fields. Terrible search functions.

Switched From: Enterprise Data Platform

Reasons for Switching to Chronicle: All of the software we researched was too expensive for our small budget. At the time of purchase, they had many features that we didn't need but Chronicle has since added for the same low rates.

GAR Cemetery Review

4.0 8 months ago

Comments: Overall, i've had a good experience with chronicle and it allowed me to correct numerous mistakes in grave locations made with MS Excel and MS Access Database. It also has self correcting logic scripts to prevent common mistakes.

Pros:

Customer support was excellent and very helpful. The software allows me to find human mistakes that have been made using excel or access database.

Cons:

In the country, my internet is kind of slow so I have to wait for the data to load. Also, when taking headstone pictures and uploading, make sure the file is around 500 KB instead of megabytes due to upload times. The larger the file, the slower it takes to load.

Alternatives Considered: Cemify and CemSites

Reasons for Switching to Chronicle: I chose chronicle for it's ability for loved ones to leave a "Chronicle" or biography since a lot of interments do not have all of the information the Cemetery needs to contact people for marketing/ headstone cleaning etc. Plus, the cemetery gets money back from chronicles purchased. Also Rocky talked to me like a human being and treated me as such and I didn't feel he was pushy. Other places I felt like I was buying a used car and they only saw dollar signs.
