Beverly Hills, Calif. (PRWEB) October 20, 2006
Reel Logix Inc announced today that more than 70% of their customers from the Non-Profit sector were churches.
“We have actually been pleasantly surprised to find that The Calendar Planner is being so well received by churches. We certainly couldn’t have predicted that the #1 scheduling calendar technology in the film and entertainment industry would be so readily adopted by religious organizations. The 25% Non-Profit discount is making our calendar software an attractive value for large organizations needing multiple licenses or the small church with a tight budget needing one or two,” said Reel Logix CEO, Randy McGowan.
Churches are facing increasingly complex scheduling challenges as they try to allocate spaces, resources and staff needed to manage an expanded roster of ministry services, special events, classes or rehearsals. Many continue to expand their offerings to well beyond the traditional Sunday service and are relying heavily on part-time, volunteer helpers, like Debbie Fisher from Green Acres Baptist Church in Tyler, Texas, to keep things on track.
In any given week Fisher has over 50 recurring events including classes, services, rehearsals and support groups to schedule. This doesn’t include some of the special events such as weddings, mission or leisure trips or concerts. “We've been using The Calendar Planner for our yearly planning calendar where I take all of our ministries events and compile them onto one planning calendar. We’ve been looking for a program to switch to and TCP fits the bill just right,” says Fisher.
Increasingly, churches are turning to administrative or productivity software like The Calendar Planner to help with planning and to share information with their congregations.
As the number of churches using TCP continues to increase, Reel Logix is looking to expand marketing in that sector by connecting with national organizations such as the National Association of Church Business Administrators (http://www.nacba.net).
With new updates scheduled for December 2006 and February 2007, Reel Logix continues to rely on feedback from users such as Fisher, to add features that will continue to enhance their productivity in church scheduling.
