Help people feel like they belong by knowing who they are and connecting them to others.
The more you know about your people, the more you can support them and help them feel connected. Aplos Software provides all the details you need in one place, like household relationships, membership management, group or ministry involvement, volunteer preferences, birthdays or anniversaries, personal notes, and much more.
Lists are a great way to help you be more aware of how connected your congregation is. You can build lists to keep track of everyone who has attended a retreat or ministry meeting, filled out a welcome card during a service, requested support to meet a need, indicated that they are available to serve on a ministry team, or recently started giving to your church.
The easy-to-use church software allows pastors, staff, or ministry leaders to store important notes and files, which makes follow-up a breeze. You also have the option available to restrict certain data to specific user roles, depending on their ministry needs.
Encourage your members to connect with and support each other throughout the week.
Empower leaders to lead their own group or ministry team in the software. They can log in to their group portal, view a roster, keep it up to date, keep track of attendance, and edit member profiles. They can also communicate important ministry updates and see a calendar of birthdays or anniversaries to celebrate special events.
Planning and scheduling meetings, managing recurring events, creating job assignments, and capturing RSVPs in the software is a breeze. Group members can log in to the secure, easy-to-use software portal, view when they are scheduled, and see meeting locations. You can also upload documents, such as agendas, minutes, a directory, or sermon notes that will be available to anyone in the group.
Make volunteer management simple when you add open positions for your ministry, invite folks to serve, and add them to your team—all from within the church software. Signing up for an opportunity is simple, and leaders can clearly see gaps in coverage so they know when they need to schedule volunteers.
Keep people coming back by quickly following up with them to show you care.
Get notifications in the software so you can reach out when special dates come around, like birthdays, wedding anniversaries, or anniversaries of a loved one's death. You can also set custom reminders to follow up with individuals after a set amount of time following an important decision, such as a Baptism.
Customize and save your standard weekly emails, thank you notes, and pledge reminders to maximize the ease and effectiveness of the communication within your church.
Use custom filters to send mail-merge letters and print mailing labels, and tailor your messages with dynamic letter builders to address individuals or households by name.
SMS text messages can be the most effective method to send urgent and timely communication to your congregation so they can be reminded of volunteer opportunities or services starting, or be notified of location changes. With Aplos, you can send messages to one mobile number or a list of subscribers—and receive responses—directly from the church software.
Churches of all sizes can use these powerful digital tools to steward their resources wisely.
Each batch of contributions automatically appears in your bookkeeping without double entry. The software tracks all tithes and offerings given online by individuals and households for contribution statements, and email receipts are sent with zero work required.
Easily pull reports to view pledges and generate pledge statements to remind those with active pledges about upcoming payments.
Quickly prepare monthly, quarterly, or annual contribution statements with a single click. You can choose to print statements or mailing labels, or send the statements via email. With the Address Verification option, mailing addresses are automatically verified by the USPS each night and formatted to match USPS standards so you save money by not having returned mail.
When people are connected, they'll want to give to support the mission of the church. Encourage generosity in your congregation by offering tools that make tithing simple.
Create custom, easy-to-use, mobile-friendly forms with no website or coding required. You can also add a user-friendly widget to your website that empowers people to give securely without ever having to leave the site.
Make weekly or monthly recurring contributions simple on your forms, and provide a secure portal for those who give to manage their own tithes and offerings. Allow them to use their preferred payment method, offer to pay transaction fees, control how often they give, and identify the purposes of their gifts to support a particular ministry, missionary, or fund.
Offer your church the option to give instantly through text giving. Members can use their mobile phones to send a text message to your church's unique number. They can give a one-time gift to your church or create an account and schedule regular gifts. It's easy to use, and all data flows directly into your church software. View pricing and details.
Keep track of guests, and ensure that children are safely checked in and out during services or special events of any size.
Launch a mobile kiosk on a phone or tablet that allows attendees to check in with a staff member or volunteer. It's so easy to use that you can also allow participants to check themselves in.
Easily link parents up with their kids by printing matching labels to help ensure security. After the service or event, you can run a report in the church software to track attendance.
If your church uses more than one classroom or conference room, you can set up multiple rooms in the software for different ministry needs. Streamline the process when you use optional tags to preset rooms for checking in kids or adults.
Connect attendees to others to help build stronger relationships and encourage them to join in.
Accept secure online registrations for your next retreat, VBS, camp, or conference. You can even collect RSVPs for free events, such as your next potluck.
Create a specific list of people you want to reach out to. Then directly email invitations, or print invites and mailing labels.
Keep track of attendance and other activity in your people database to monitor your event's success. You can also run a report to compare your budget with your actual expenses to make sure you stayed within the budget you set.
