Apps For Religious Organisations
Keeping your community engaged and the wider religious family in touch is not easy. They want to hear from you between services but with crowded inboxes, a young adult demographic that doesn’t do email, a website which broadcasts information but can’t personalise it, social media sites which are unfocused and limited in format, and ever-decreasing attention spans and patience levels, even the most inspiring or urgent material goes astray or unread.
If you are struggling to cover everyone through a mix of emails, texts, paper, Google apps, Whatsapp groups, Facebook feeds and website announcements you already know the problem. The solution is a high-quality mobile app which can double up as both a messaging centre ‘pushing’ information to them and an everything-in-one-place hub they can browse fast when needed.
Speed Up Your Communication
Piota’s religious organisation apps speeds your communications in rich formats directly to everyone, or specific sub-groups, or individuals.
It’s a quick reference source with immediate access to everything people might want to know, from meeting timings to last week’s sermon recording to how to donate. And it is affordable for all religious organisations and should more than pay for itself in cost and time savings.
Improve communications, engagement and feedback.
Improve Your Communication For Your Community
Everything In One Place
Communication apps provide an instantly accessible information hub. Whether users need to check the time of the event, the detail in an alert you sent, the latest news or make a payment, simply “Put It On The App”. No more hunting for information through email inboxes, texts or website menus.
Push Notification Messages
The most direct way to contact people. Whenever you update an event or news item, send out a permission form or issue a one-line reminder, you can add an alert to it with a push notification to all users, selected groups or individuals. The excuses culture (“I didn’t know the swimming gala was happening last night”) will disappear!
Quickly send out dynamic content such as photos, video or feedback surveys along with fast reply options to maximise response rates. Your users can filter content on the app so it’s always relevant to them. The result is a focused stream of rich information and happier users.
Reduce Time And Cost
An app can do everything that a website, email or text can do and more. Plus it’s all in one place, allowing you to streamline your communications dramatically. First collect together all of your newsletters, policies, news stories, the calendar, documents, letters home, forms, contacts, feedback surveys, general information, social channels and more on the app, then start to rationalise your other channels.
People want a smart, branded system which is quick, simple to use and makes their lives easier. If you find a combination of email, website, text and social media is no longer working for you, Piota (Put It On The App) is a mobile app specialist with the answer. Please get in touch!
