People, especially young families, are changing churches more often to meet their changing needs. When congregations use Instant Church Directory Online™, they no longer have to worry about their directories quickly becoming obsolete.
Canton, OH (PRWEB) September 24, 2008
Communication Resources Inc. today announced the release of Instant Church Directory Online™, a convenient, affordable solution to creating church photo-directories. The new product, a follow-up to the groundbreaking Instant Church Directory™ software, allows congregations to bypass expensive directory companies. With the new version allowing online access and login, now churches can update their directories from any computer at any time, rather than from just a single office computer.
Instant Church Directory Online™, available at http://www.InstantChurchDirectory.com, walks customers through the easy process, from taking digital pictures of church members to printing their own customized directories. Churches, many of which are facing tight budgets, can quickly create attractive, up-to-date photo-directories. Plus, families no longer have to feel pressured to buy expensive portrait packages.
Churches can update photo-directories as often as they wish and print as many copies as they need. Meanwhile, they avoid the expense, hassle and delay of working with photo-directory companies, whose products are usually outdated by the time they arrive. Churches are always in flux, with new members joining, other people and staff leaving, families changing and so on.
A photo-directory is essential for helping church members get to know one another better, build a sense of community and strengthen member care. People rely on photo-directories to match names to faces and to keep important contact information at their fingertips. So that means up-to-the-minute accuracy is key, especially in today's church-hopping culture.
"Recent research shows that Americans' faith is increasingly fluid, and church members have less 'brand loyalty' these days," said Anne Pufal, managing editor for Instant Church Directory Online™. "People, especially young families, are changing churches more often to meet their changing needs. When congregations use Instant Church Directory Online™, they no longer have to worry about their directories quickly becoming obsolete."
With the intuitive Instant Church Directory Online™, directories are ready in hours, not months. Talking tutorials guide users through each step. Customers who have provided feedback about the online servce say they're grateful for this simple, low-cost method of producing photo-directories.
The current economic situation, which is challenging churches as well as families, also makes Instant Church Directory Online™ an attractive alternative to traditional directory companies. "With so many people now struggling to make ends meet, the last thing church members need is the temptation to buy expensive family portraits," Pufal said.
Instant Church Directory Online™ costs only $59.95 per year, which includes unlimited access to create an unlimited number of directories. Customers can create an attractive cover and customized pages for pastors, staff and activities as well as a membership roster. Churches can print directories in full-color or black-and-white, using equipment they already have. Also, churches can link photo-directories to their Web sites and provide members with password-protected access.The service is also ideal for producing photo-directories for Youth Groups, Choirs, Sunday School Classes, Preschool, Women's and Men's Organizations, Fellowship Groups and other church ministries.
