After market-wide evaluation, ACS Technologies is chosen as clear “best-of-breed” ministry solutions provider.
Florence, SC: February 28, 2011 – ACS Technologies (acstechnologies.com), the world’s leading provider of church management software solutions, announces a strategic alliance with Mad Gravity (madgravity.com) to support 1200 NSpire Total Church management software clients in a seamless transition of continued new product and service growth.
In early September 2010, Mad Gravity began actively looking for a way to create a transition for their customers using the NSpire product, which allows church pastors and administrators to manage a variety of day-to-day operations, so that they could shift development and support focus and concentrate on the youth ministry market with their leading Youth Assistant and Yap Tap products. “Regardless of the change to our product line focus, we wanted to do what was in the best interest of all our NSpire users. We’re dedicated to the church market and want everything we do to ultimately be beneficial to them,” said Jack Lance, CEO of Mad Gravity.
“After a thorough search, we found without question, ACS Technologies to be one of the most respected service-oriented companies with the most robust church management solutions in the country. Our decision was clear for what was in the best interest of our customers. This alliance will help us continue to serve them in a way that we believe is a win for everyone—especially the NSpire user,” said Jack Lance.
“We’re honored to be selected by the Mad Gravity team as the best alternative for their NSpire customers,” stated Tom Carringer, Executive Director at ACS Technologies. “For us, this is another key decision in our mission to serve churches of all sizes with the tools they need to build the Kingdom and serve their communities. We will provide NSpire customers a multitude of options to choose within the ACS Technologies solutions base while continuing their service agreements. From our evaluation of the NSpire product, we believe many customers will find that our ACS OnDemand product will provide them with the added value of additional functionality and an even greater scope of use.”
Both companies are dedicated to serving the churches currently using NSpire software without service interruption. To this end, ACS Technologies will honor existing support agreements and provide valuable free and discounted services to aid successful client migration.
Mad Gravity, who acquired TCS Software the former owners of NSpire in 2010, believes that NSpire customers will ultimately be better served by ACS Technologies who specializes in church management software. Jack Lance reiterated, “We are extremely excited at how this partnership will benefit our NSpire customers. We understand that churches have unique needs, and are confident that ACS Technologies offers the best-of-breed in providing unparalleled solutions for all churches.”
