Many churches have limited staff and resources, relying on a tight budget to care for members and reach their communities. Thanks to Wi-Fi in nearly every location, 3G/4G mobile phone service, and the fact that nearly every pastor utilizes a laptop alongside a smartphone or tablet, By the Book of Byron, Ill., has developed its web integration add-on for Roll Call church management software (ChMS) called Roll Call Connect.
"This new web integration functionality will help our church customers stay better connected to their congregations," says Kim Conley, co-owner of By the Book, software for churches and nonprofits. "Roll Call Connect was built for busy church staff and pastors in mind who want to better manage their church business."
Roll Call Connect staff features include:
Snapshot of church giving and church attendance
Quick glance of upcoming birthdays and anniversaries
Look-up and update of church contact information
Record church visitations and confidential comments while on the road
Roll Call Connect congregation features include:
View and update church member profile information
View giving history
Record group attendance if they are a group leader
“Roll Call connect gives you the ability to be the church outside of the church, I love the accessibility of information in the palm of my hand," says Steve Oster, Community Presbyterian Church, Minot, N.D.
