IMPORTANT: ChurchTrac 9 (our older, desktop-based product) has been retired due to compatibility issues with newer versions of Windows and Office. No further updates for ChurchTrac 9 are planned. We recommend that all desktop customers migrate to our newer product, ChurchTrac Online. Continue reading below for more information.
NOTE: ChurchTrac 9 may not run on some PCs due to compatibility issues with Windows or Office. Please understand that we cannot guarantee that ChurchTrac 9 will work on your PC, or that it will continue to work on your PC. At any point a Windows or Office update issued by Microsoft may also cause the application to stop working. The only remedy that we can offer in this case is our assistance to help you migrate your account and data to our newer product, ChurchTrac Online.
Will you continue to support ChurchTrac 9?
It is our intention to provide basic support for existing ChurchTrac 9 users for as long as possible. However, tech support for ChurchTrac 9 will end on December 31, 2017. Additionally, no new maintenance updates are planned for ChurchTrac 9, which means that a future Microsoft Windows or Office update might break compatibility on some systems. Some customers have reported that installing an upgrade to a new version of Windows or new version of Office could break ChurchTrac 9. Also ChurchTrac 9 will not work on PCs where Office 365 is installed. Fortunately, ChurchTrac Online does not suffer from any of these conficts or compatibility issues, and we can easily migrate your ChurchTrac 9 data to ChurchTrac Online.
What are the differences between CT9 and CTO?
If you're already familiar with ChurchTrac 9, then learning ChurchTrac Online will be easy. ChurchTrac Online is designed with the same basic interface as ChurchTrac 9, but CTO has more options, security and flexibility. Plus, with CTO, there's no need to synchronize, since your data is always available from any device. We've also added tons of great features to ChurchTrac Online that ChurchTrac 9 doesn't have, like online giving, volunteer management, name archiving, family check-in, congregation access, and fund-based accounting.

Isn't ChurchTrac Online more expensive than ChurchTrac 9?
Actually, for a lot of our customers, ChurchTrac Online costs less than what they were paying for ChurchTrac 9. For most others, the annual cost is about the same. For larger churches, the annual cost for CTO may be higher than ChurchTrac 9, but still well under what others charge for similar products. In fact, in a recent survey, we found that our customers who switch to CTO from another product pay us on average about one fourth of what they were paying their previous software provider. ChurchTrac Online prices start at under $5/month.
Is ChurchTrac 9 still free for small churches?
Yes, you can download and install our older product, ChurchTrac 9, and enter up to 100 names for free. If you need to enter more than 100 names, you'll need to migrate to ChurchTrac Online. For the best experience, we still recommend that you start with ChurchTrac Online, even if you have less than 100 names. There are numerous benefits to our online product compared to CT9, and pricing for CTO is very affordable, starting at less than $5 per month.
