You've got questions. We've got answers.
Realm is the replacement product for Church Helpmate. Realm is a new 100% web-based application from ACS Technologies that informs your staff, connects your congregation, and multiplies your ministry across a broader community. It helps church staff manage daily tasks like church contributions, tracking member involvement and contribution trends, sending group emails, managing small groups, and more. It encourages your church body to connect and share experiences together, and (if applicable) it coordinates information, communication, resources, and administration across multiple campuses. All of your data is safely stored and backed up in the cloud, making it available 24/7 from anywhere using a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile phone. Realm is already in use by more than 4000 churches, even while it continues to advance and grow in functionality.
As part of our end-of-life timeline for the Church Helpmate product (which was established back in April of 2016), we fully dropped all support services for Church Helpmate on January 1, 2018. At this point, if you choose to continue to use your Church Helpmate software please know that you’d be doing so without ANY support assistance from Helpmate. Even if you don’t normally need support assistance for Church Helpmate, unforeseen things may occur (Windows updates, computer crashes, corrupted data files, new installations, etc.) that may leave you “dead in the water”…and we never, ever want that to happen. So, if you do decide to continue to use Church Helpmate, please be aware of these risks.
Switching to Realm is not mandatory. However, if you are anything like our other Church Helpmate clients, there are SO many reasons to consider switching to Realm. It’s honestly the perfect upgrade and replacement for Church Helpmate. We would love to have the opportunity to meet with you to discuss Realm’s strengths and advantages and to get you a custom price quote. Our sincere desire and goal is to assist you with making an informed decision about Realm. We’re not going to try to sell you something that you don’t believe in – or that wouldn’t serve your church as well (or better) than Church Helpmate.
Although we at Helpmate firmly believe that Realm is THE best solution for today’s churches, we’re never going to assume that “one size fits all.” We’d love to help you explore if Realm is right for your church. Simply contact us (using the form at the bottom of this page) and we’ll be more than happy to assist you with this. We have tons of excellent resources (video tours, demos, webinars, pricing, references, etc.) to share with you if and when appropriate.
Realm’s pricing model is completely different than our pricing for the Church Helpmate Online service and for the Church Helpmate Desktop product. Realm’s pricing is based on your church’s actual typical weekly attendance (the average number of adults and kids that attend your worship services each weekend). Realm’s pricing is also based on which of the three Realm plans is best for your church. Like most web-based services (including Church Helpmate Online), Realm is an ongoing monthly subscription. Contact us (using the form at the bottom of this page) and we’d be happy to generate a custom quote for you.
Yes, absolutely! We’ve already helped hundreds of Church Helpmate customers transition to Realm – including converting their existing data to Realm. As a one of the many benefits of the Helpmate / ACS Technologies merger, this data conversion service is completely FREE (normally a $500 fee).
Once you and your church have decided to transition to Realm, just give us a call at 1-800-736-7425. We will confirm and review everything with you and place your order. Your Realm account (including your converted data) will typically be ready within 3 to 5 business days of your order.
