Florence, SC: September 30, 2012 – ACS Technologies (acstechnologies.com), the world’s leading provider of church management software solutions, has rolled out phase 1 integration between the most popular people management tool, ACS People™, and the innovative church social network, The City. With this integration, key information will be kept in sync, making it easy for churches to take advantage of the unique strengths of each solution.
The City, a private, online social network, is used by churches all over the country to build and deepen relationships and empower groups and individuals to share life and ministry throughout the week. ACS™ is the most widely used church management software solution, with over 14,000 churches relying on it every day to run their churches.
The data syncing between The City and ACS will be as automated as each organization prefers. With this integration, it will be simple to invite individuals who are already in the church database to use The City – and just as easy to add people to ACS from The City. With the people profiles in sync, changes made in the ACS database will be automatically updated in The City, and vice versa, depending on settings selected by the church.
“I am honestly beyond excited about the way The City and ACS will be combined. This is going to make it a snap to update people in the system and ensure a change made in one place is reflected in the other. This is just an outstanding combination of two really great tools!” said Kristin Brice, administrative assistant at Covenant Love Church in Fayetteville, NC.
“The fusion of people data between The City and ACS is so powerful,” said Steve Cumbia, Executive Director, Research and Development at ACS Technologies. “You’ve got the most robust people management system for churches plus the best social community for ministries on the market, and now they’re working together. This is something we’re very pleased to offer our clients.”
With phase 1 integration underway, ACS Technologies is looking forward to rolling out future phases of integration between The City and all of the tools used by its clients.
