"We are very excited about what we've been able to achieve in improving communication and expanding reach for churches online," says
"Our mission," adds Whatley, "is to free the church to fulfill its mission."
The software, which is available as Software as a Service (or
A major feature of the software is a flexible and intuitive system for updating of financial information of the church, including accepting recurring gifts online, setting up specialized fundraising efforts, classifying funds as donations (such as tithes) or reimbursements (such as book purchases for classes), and allowing members to take an active role in how they give so as to be better stewards of gifts to the church.
"We have found that, when someone cares about their church, often they just need a tool that helps them express it," notes Whatley. "If a certain amount of clerical work can be eliminated by allowing members to have a more active role in their giving -- and if the members know this allows the church to do even more good in the community and in the world -- then church members need to have the opportunity to take part, to take ownership in that regard."
Additional features of the software include advanced management of website content, integration of popular event ticketing and calendaring services, as well as the feeding of content to multiple existing online communities.
"One thing that many churches are seeing more and more is that they need to meet people where they are rather than attempt to build their own environment and hope people show up. Rather than asking churches to recreate the wheel and try, for instance, to create their own social network, we recognize existing user behavior and work with the church to reach out."
Whatley continues, "This doesn't just apply to members, but also to volunteers, staff, and others in the community. We feel strongly that for many, there are enough hurdles to making a meaningful connection with a spiritual community, and we aim to remove as many of those hurdles as we can. That means making technology that is accessible to as many as possible while also powerful for the church's practical needs."
