There’s no denying you have a lot on your plate. When it comes to ministry, there will always be people who need you and tasks that need accomplishing. This is why it’s crucial your church software works for you and not against you. Nobody wants to have to input data multiple times or spend more time keeping software up-to-date than actually fulfilling your mission. Because of this, it’s essential you integrate your online giving with your church management software (ChMS).
Plus, integrating these solutions can help your ministry grow. Our customers see a 153% increase in giving volume when they use our Giving and People modules together.
Need more reasons? Here are seven ways integrating your online giving and ChMS can help you spend more time on what matters:
The generosity of your members plays a big part in reaching your community and making your ministry possible. Integrating your online giving and ChMS is proven to increase giving. In fact, we found in a recent study of churches using our platform that:
“Churches that have our giving solutions combined with our church management software are growing donations by more than 10%.”
When it’s convenient to give, and when your members don’t feel intimidated by complicated software, they’re more likely to give faithfully, regularly, and generously.
What could your church do with 10% more?
Let’s face it, as hard as we try, we will never be perfect when it comes to record-keeping, importing data, and keeping track of an entire congregation. But that’s where an integrated online giving and ChMS comes in.
A centralized platform means everything is all in one place removing the margin for error. Easily create and share custom reports, manage transactions, send out statements, and even give members access to their own giving records all from the same system.
Do you dread sending out year-end statements? Imagine this: each member’s giving (from all sources) is located in one place alongside their contact information. Because of this, the report is ready at the click of a button so all you have to do is send it out. Quick. Easy. Stree-free.
Plus, your year-end statements could reflect the growth your church has experienced after integrating these solutions:
“Using integrated Giving and ChMS tools churches have seen their total Giving grow at 2X the rate of the national average.”
Your people are much more than what they give monetarily. Integrating online giving with ChMS makes it easy for you to create and maintain accurate member profiles. This includes information like:
The best part is that all of this is accessible alongside their giving statements.
What percentage of your congregation tithes online? How many giving units does your church have? How close are you to reaching your campaign goal?
Using your current software, can you quickly and easily answer these questions? If not, it’s time to integrate your online giving and ChMS. This integration means you have access to clear engagement analytics and real-time data so you stay informed and aware.
Don’t get stuck manually importing data, bouncing around between software solutions, or drowning in paperwork. The beauty of integrating online giving with your ChMS is everything is all in one place, streamlining your processes and freeing you up to spend less time on admin and more time on ministry.
Finally, this integration means everything (giving records, member profiles, progress reports, etc.) is all in one, easily-accessible, place.
For members, this means they can easily keep track of their recurring and one-time donations in the same place they volunteer for childcare or sign up for Bible study.
For you, this means simplified reporting and peace of mind knowing all of the data is in one centralized place.
Integrating your online giving and ChMS is proven to make an impact on your church that goes beyond just giving. It’s not just a good thing to do, it’s essential if you want to spend more time focusing on ministry.
