Software and Services for Catholic and Orthodox Organizations

Inform Your Staff
Parish Data System is a comprehensive set of software products that work together to provide your staff with a full picture of what’s going on in your parish. Churches turn to PDS to help organize and coordinate all of their operational, activity, and family information.
Connect Your Parishioners
Encourage people to become more active in your parish. We can help you provide your parish with an online community where people can interact and stay in touch with your parish—making it easier to communicate, grow, give, serve, and meet needs together.
Access At Your Fingertips
Say goodbye to the limits of when and where the work can be done. PDS OnDemand equips your staff (and volunteers) to lookup your data anytime from anywhere so you can enter information at your own convenience.
Automate Updates and Back Ups
PDS OnDemand is cloud-based and managed by us, which means you can access your software from virtually anywhere but our team will make sure it is updated and backed up for you. It’s worry-free and always the latest version.
Synchronize Diocese and Parish Data
Simplify the exchange of accurate family and financial information between your diocese, parishes and other organizations by standardizing your diocese with PDS.
Improve Mailing Accuracy
PDS Development Connection™ automatically synchronizes name and address updates from parishes into Blackbaud’s The Raiser’s Edge™ and sends changes to parishes for review.
Run Effective Fundraising Campaigns
PDS DioOffice™, coupled with PDS DioOffice Server™, helps you synchronize family, personnel, and other key information with parishes and diocesan departments.
Consolidate Financial Reports
PDS DioView™ streamlines the process of consolidating financial reports by enabling your parishes to submit their financial data over the Internet.
Centrally Manage Student Information
Login to access student information, schedules, grades, attendance, activities, discipline, medical details, transcripts, and so much more from campus, your mobile device, or home.
Automate Billing and Reports
Record tuition, fees, and payments per student so you can monitor outstanding accounts and easily send out billing statements. You can also spin up reports to review balances and other information.
Connect Faculty and Parents
Connect with parents and students outside of the classroom by enabling them to go online and view assignments, grades, progress, and communicate with teachers.
