“The ChurchInsight tool set is so much more than a website. So, whilst we've been able to develop a fresh website using ChurchInsight, the database, calendar and range of additional features supporting our back-office admin functions are equally valuable. It is easy to give different people access to the specific tools and sections of the website that they need, thus ensuring that those who lead, organise or communicate about different ministries within the church are able to use the tools themselves without conflicting with other teams.
The Rota facility enables each team leader separately to organise the duties for their team, whilst automatically feeding into a single view of all contributors for a service or event. Using the database we can send regular mailings to selected groups of members and contacts which has helped to improve our communication. Because the website content on each page is maintained by those individuals who know what's going on this ensures the content remains fresh and up to date and avoids any bottleneck for making changes. The Calendar allows us to have all our activities in one place, accessible to those who need to see them, and the Resources tool provides the ability to manage the booking and use of different rooms and facilities.
For those who use the tools and make changes to the website, the Web Office is straightforward to use. But if ever we hit an issue or a question there is a useful knowledge base with lots of articles, hints and video clips to help. And on the rare occasion when we have needed to contact the Support Team, they have been excellent with their quick, accurate and helpful responses. We have been very pleased with ChurchInsight, the range of features, the team supporting us and the ongoing development of the product.”
