Church staffers and members are praising new functionality of the popular mobile apps
Florence, SC – ACS Technologies, the world’s leading provider of church management software solutions, has released two new versions of the free mobile app ACS Church Life™ for Android and for Apple iPhone. ACS Church Life connects individuals to their Access ACS™ church membership information and to ACS Facility Scheduler™ calendar information on-the-go, and the latest version has garnered 5-star reviews from the thousands of downloads of the new app.
“I have loaded the new app on my phone and love it!” said Linda McKeirnan, a church business administrator in Kansas. Users are celebrating the enhanced, quick texting function, the ability to easily add an individual record to the phone’s contacts, the option to map addresses associated with a record in the app, as well as the ability to view more than 50 calendar events. “It seems much faster and I love being able to send a text message from the app so I don’t have to add everyone to my contacts,” McKeirnan added.
ACS Church Life uses the security settings associated with an individual, restricting access to events and contact information according to the individual’s permissions level. Another benefit of the latest release of ACS Church Life is that the native versions of the apps are designed specifically for either Android or iPhone, so the function of the apps is intuitive to users.
“The app is used a lot by church staff to visit members of the church – for instance, if they’re going to go see someone in the hospital. What’s great is that they can pull up a record, see the photo of the person they’re about to go visit, and access the image of the spouse or other family members, as well,” said Sally Grantham, Senior Project Manager, R&D, ACS Technologies. “They can see every phone number or email address for the person they’re about to visit, and before heading out they can quickly send a text or email to the right email address or phone number.”
With its recent formation of a development team dedicated to working on products like ACS Church Life, ACS Technologies is planning more mobile developments in the future. According to Grantham, “Users can look forward to many more enhancements as well as new products that will help put valuable information at their fingertips.”
