DALLAS (PRWEB) OCTOBER 30, 2019
TouchPoint Software, an online church management system (ChMS), today announced its live integration with OnlineGiving.org. As part of the integration, any church currently using TouchPoint can utilize OnlineGiving.org to process payments such as donations, recurring giving, event registrations, and more.
The integration provides churches that are using or considering TouchPoint Software as their ChMS with an additional option for processing payments. OnlineGiving.org offers a robust suite of digital giving tools, including text marketing, single sign-on giving, chatbot giving, and more. Church members who give via OnlineGiving.org will have their donation data pushed directly to their contact record in TouchPoint. OnlineGiving.org offers 12 different ways for church members to give to their church—all of which are reflected on their contact record in TouchPoint.
The integration with TouchPoint came about when Second Presbyterian Church in Memphis, Tenn., wanted to use OnlineGiving.org’s platform of donation tools. TouchPoint’s open API allowed the development team at OnlineGiving.org to write a bi-directional integration between the two software platforms. “When we discovered the church was using TouchPoint, we were elated,” says Stephen Ballard, co-founder of OnlineGiving.org. “The integration with TouchPoint is powerful for ministry, and it allows us to innovate as we partner with other churches in the future.”
“We’re excited about this partnership because it expands the options churches have when it comes to online giving,” says Ross Miller, president of TouchPoint Software. “Our goal at TouchPoint has always been to provide churches with tools that help them know their members and grow fully devoted followers of Christ. OnlineGiving.org helps church members give back and resource the mission of the church via channels that are most convenient for them.”
Churches that use OnlineGiving.org’s platform will be able to offer their members 12 different ways of giving that all integrate seamlessly with TouchPoint Software. Options include digital giving forms, text message giving, swiped kiosk giving, and custom giving pages for special offerings. Churches’ giving pages can be configured to match their brand experience, ensuring a consistent giving experience across all channels.
Open-source church management systems like TouchPoint offer churches a level of flexibility that is missing from most other providers. Churches using TouchPoint that want to integrate with other best-of-breed software providers can do so without needing to go through administrative hurdles. The ability to write custom integrations serves the church well by giving them the optimal infrastructure for meeting their ministry needs.
“The goals at TouchPoint and OnlineGiving.org are the same,” says Miller. “We want to support churches with tools that allow them to serve their members and communities more effectively. We’re grateful to the team at OnlineGiving.org for opening up new pathways for generosity.”
OnlineGiving.org is now available to any church that uses TouchPoint as its church management system.
