ACS Technologies® Partners with Blackbaud™ to Release PDS DioEdge™

    New solution provides seamless information sharing between parishes and dioceses

    October 24, 2017, Florence, S.C. – ACS Technologies®, the world’s leading provider of church management software and service solutions, recently announced its partnership with Blackbaud to develop a new tool that allows parishes and dioceses to share information more efficiently. 

    PDS DioEdge™, the result of this partnership, provides the capability of automating additions, changes, and deletions of name and address information from parishes using ACS Technologies’ all-new cloud solution, Realm®, or PDS Church Office™ and ACS People™ into Blackbaud’s Raiser’s Edge NXT™. It also allows for dioceses to send changes for review to parishes without losing important data. 

    This tool not only creates synergy between parishes and dioceses, it also synchronizes databases, provides automatic updates, and increases mailing effectiveness, saving the parish and the diocese time and resources.

    “We’re honored to work with Blackbaud to release PDS DioEdge,” said Johnny Stoupenos, Senior Director, Denominational Alliances. “Our goal is to be the best provider for every technology solution and service a Catholic parish or diocese needs. This partnership will provide our clients with an easy-to-use, secure tool to more efficiently manage their information,” Stoupenos continued.
