A Passion for Partnership
One of our favorite things about serving churches is the opportunity to work alongside other companies who share our passion to create world-class technology in a space that hasn’t always had it. And we know what we’re best at—mobile giving and engagement solutions—so we’re always excited to partner with organizations that are creating game-changing tools for churches that cover different areas of need.
That’s why we have already invested in creating integrations with nearly 20 leading church management platforms and databases. And it’s why we are so excited to announce our newest integration with Planning Center Online.
When you talk about pioneering church tech companies, you can’t get far without mentioning Planning Center. For over 10 years they have been building intuitive and incredibly useful tools for churches. Their blog reads like a live feed of innovation, with almost daily announcements of new features. (Seriously, you should check it out.)
In recent years, as they have expanded their core service planning product into a full-fledged church management platform, we have been interested in finding ways for echurch powered by Pushpay and Planning Center to work more closely together. With today’s announcement, they finally do!
echurch + Planning Center People
With the new integration, Community Member records in Pushpay will now be matched automatically with the corresponding records in Planning Center’s People module. As contact info is added or updated in Pushpay, that same info will be updated in Planning Center.
Better still, as brand new donors continue to engage with your church’s Pushpay giving solution, we’ll automatically create new records for those donors in Planning Center People. No manual entry or double work required for you or your team!
Once records have been matched between the two systems, any future updates made in Planning Center will be pushed back to Pushpay as well. This ensures that Planning Center and Pushpay will always remain in sync. It also ensures a great giving experience for your congregation, and a painless administrative process for your finance team.
Only the Beginning
Our integration with Planning Center People is one of our most exciting new features of the Summer. But it’s also only the beginning! As Planning Center and echurch continue to grow, we will be exploring additional opportunities for our systems to support each other.
We know that when technology platforms work side-by-side to complement each other, ultimately, it is the Church community that benefits. We are looking forward to working alongside Planning Center to serve our shared customers for many years to come.
