Many non profits are lead to believe that barcoding gives huge discounts when they bulk mail. What many organization do not realize is they must be CASS/PAVE certified. This certification is an expensive endeavor for smaller organizations. Because of the expense for these certification the organization will actually lose money unless they are mailing out thousands of “mail pieces” at a time. Here is an example of the cost of non bar coded and bar coded for “mail pieces” for the not-profit industry.
It has been an exciting time at Icon Systems for the Development team. Today Icon Systems uploaded all new code for the entire IconCMO system to work faster on the Internet and eliminate cache issues in browsers.
Included in this upload was additional enhancements like email history. This function is found in two areas of the system:
- Household Menu (Hse-List)
- System Menu (Email History)
What do all these names have in common?
They serve the same function, in that they are to bring the community together on a more personal level and increase our spiritual growth within the church. They are also to help bring new people into the church and get them involved in the church’s mission. Imagine if the church could mobilize their entire congregation to donate at least one hour a week towards a group function. How many things could get done in that time to help the church fulfill its mission? Groups are especially important in the larger churches where on any given Sunday you may not know the person’s name next to you.
Every church has a different name for these groups such as bible study group, men’s or women’s bible studies, youth groups, core groups, reach groups, home groups, connection groups, and the list goes on and on…

Partnership between Icon Systems and Constant Contact!
Icon Systems has released software integration with Constant Contact for advanced e-mailing capabilities. IconCMO can now export e-mail addresses from the groups and talents modules to Constant Contact, eliminating duplicate entry between the church software and e-mail program. A challenge for churches in the past was how to leverage the data in their traditional church software to communicate effectively and easily using a sophisticated e-mailing program.
Icon Systems Inc is proud to release a new feature for churches within the IconCMO solution.
