Churches today have many types of spaces they need to manage. This includes meeting rooms, gymnasiums, multi-purpose facilities, classrooms, and outdoor areas. And they often make these spaces available to church members and staff, as well as to outside individuals and organizations on a rental basis. But whoever the meeting host is, the goals for schedulers are the same:
It’s a tall task, but one that’s totally achievable with an advanced scheduling system.
Churches tend to be excellent stewards of their budgets, and will continue to use a resource like their scheduling system as long as possible. However, at some point it benefits the church, its members, and meeting and event attendees to implement a modern scheduling solution.
Your system is running on an aging server somewhere and not in the cloud.
Your not sure how much longer your software will be supported.
When your scheduling solution has the appropriate features and functions, you can manage meetings and events much more efficiently and provide exceptional service to hosts and attendees. That includes:
Greatly reduce event-related inquiries by making meeting and event details easily accessible online.
Managing room reservation requests efficiently is important, so having a system with a built-in request process is essential.
Getting necessary approvals for events can be a labor-intensive task, but having features that support that process makes it easier.
Your setup crew and others who help with events can be much more efficient when setup reports are easy to view and print.
For staff members who are away from their desk, being able to access your scheduling solution and see current setup information from their phone or tablet is a must.
You don’t have time to deal with compatibility issues.
