Ever wonder if the church’s software gives a good return on investment? Has the church ever reviewed the numbers to see if the church is saving money using the software? Does it save labor, resources, money, time, increase donations and attendance, etc.? Some of these are very concrete numbers and others are abstract and at times can not be easily calculated. However all of them are important and should be used to calculate the ROI equation. Using this equation the church ensures that the software is giving the biggest bang for the dollar.
Today we’re announcing a partnership with UpperRoom Technologies. This San Antonio based company has been developing some amazing products for ministry and we’re excited to bring them to you as one of our partners!
Icon Systems has partnered with VolunteerSpot to provide churches a total solution for volunteer coordination and church management. VolunteerSpot saves time and makes it easy to schedule, sign up and remind volunteers. VolunteerSpot can be used by ANYONE, church leaders and congregation volunteers, to organize signups for activities ranging from hospitality committee to parking attendants, liturgy to ushers, VBS to Christmas productions, ministry meals to Sunday school snacks, festival fundraisers to community service projects.
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.
Community Auction Software
Icon Systems has announced a software integration with Community Auction Software that is developed by Community Auctions Services LLC. The software will import the membership from IconCMO into the auction software. This eliminates duplicate data entry for organizations that have to input this each time into their auction software from their church database. By using EasyAuction the church can easily accept new people before the event, import existing church members, accept donated items, print bid receipts and much more. It makes all the auction headaches go away on the night of the auction. Visit Community Auction WebsitePresident Bill Gifford Icon Systems, Inc.
