Happy New Year! Now that the holidays are coming to a close and a new year is beginning, now is an excellent time to evaluate some of the key systems that you use on a regular basis. This month, I want to take a moment to highlight one of my favorite systems, our church management softwareÖ Churchteams.
Finding the right church management software can be difficult, especially if you are new to the role of XP. Most churches are using a church management software, but I donít often find people who are truly satisfied. Rather, many people are disappointed or frustrated in their church management software because it is lacking in features, hard to use, expensive, out-of-date, or the company has bad customer service and isnít helpful when you need them the most.
This was my situation about a decade ago. I used to be at a church in South Carolina, and the software we used was terrible. You basically had to know DOS commands to navigate the system (Iím not joking), and it didnít really do anything well. Thatís when I began looking for better options. After a ton of research evaluating multiple companies, I decided to give Churchteams a try. And, I am so glad I did! Iíve now been using Churchteams for over a decade, and they continue to be a true ministry partner for me and my church.
Churchteams is an excellent online church management software. It is feature-reach, easy to use, affordable, up-to-date, and they have outstanding customer service. Churchteams does just about everything, and it does it well. Their list of features include people management (membership), group management, online giving (through your church website and text), childrenís ministry check-in, volunteer management, registration, communication (through their advanced email editor and text), and even automation (workflows).
And, I know that I mentioned their customer service earlier, but I mean it when I say it. Their customer service is outstanding. For example, there are several large competitors that have a frustrating process that you have to go through when you need help. These competitors make you open a support ticket online (they wonít answer the phone), and they make you wait 24-48 hours for a response. And usually, their initial response isnít very helpful, which delays your issue even further. This is not the case with Churchteams. The staff at Churchteams responds quickly, and they provide personalized customer service, providing you with the help you need as quickly as possible. And, unlike their competitors, they will answer the phone if you call.
If you are looking for an excellent online church management software, I highly recommend that you contact my friends at Churchteams. I am 100% confident that they can help you and your church be better with the administrative side of ministry.
