The City by ACS Technologies is a collection of Web-based modules that drive online church communications to keep congregants and leaders connected.
Faith-based organizations plugged into The City can broadcast messages, promotions and advertisements to all members, or target specific individuals or groups. At the same time, the application tracks email views, clicks and other engagement metrics to assess reach and performance.
On the member-facing side of the application, congregants create personal profiles that are accessible only to other members in their church community. They can exchange messages privately, or share them on Facebook or Twitter using The City’s integrated social sharing features. And young congregants between the ages of 13 and 18 can safely participate, as The City has additional safeguards to help parents maintain their privacy and security.
Group leaders who need to fill volunteer and other service opportunities can also search for members who are the best fit, based on the skills and interests listed in their profiles.
Finally, the platform is completely customizable: Organizations can upload logos and images, and select colors and fonts that match their brand.
Vanessa from First Presbyterian Church
While fairly easy to use, the City has a heavy, clunky feel to it. The opportunity to connect among members is great, but there's much to be desired here.
Kevin from Radiant Life Church
Our church has been using the City for the last few years and we absolutely love it. It is so simple to use and has everything we need to communicate, track data, and connect people to their God given talents and passions. A+++
