Pushpay’s Winter Product Release Provides New Tools and Insights to Help the Church Streamline Administration and Engage With Their Congregation — Any Day of the Week
Pushpay Holdings Limited, the leading payments and engagement provider to the US faith sector, announces its winter product updates, which include a new financial dashboard and insights to help streamline reporting and provide better visibility into the financial state of an organization.
Church finance teams are often the unsung heroes of the church. As trusted advisors, they are responsible for accounting for every dollar that enters the church and maintaining data consistency in order to shepherd the financial health of their organization. The new Pushpay financial dashboard enables churches to quickly view giving trends and transactions by source, date, volume, type and more. In addition, a new comparison view allows the Church to surface data comparisons by week, quarter, month and more — all in a matter of seconds.
“Being able to see and compare data with a few clicks of a button is amazing — definitely a time saver for us,” said Michelle Hsu, Finance Controller at Churchome in Kirkland. “And I love having the ability to drill down into the ‘why’ behind the numbers. Having quick accessibility to the data we need has been empowering for my team.”
Additional features announced in the winter product release include:
- Donor Pledging: For many churches, annual pledges and campaigns are an important part of a stewardship strategy. Pushpay announces a new donor pledge feature which allows congregants to submit pledge campaigns online — saving countless hours of manual entry by church admins and volunteers. With a few clicks of a button, donors can now enter a pledge online and track their individual progress.
- App Audio Player Enhancements: Listening to sermons and podcasts is one of the top activities performed by community members in their church app. Pushpay’s new in-app audio player enhances the audio experience to help churches engage their community — any day of the week. Users can use the audio player while taking notes, control the speed of playback, and stream to Apple and Google devices. Additionally, users now have the ability to download audio content, providing an opportunity to listen anytime, anywhere.
- Expanded Donor Development Insights: On the heels of the November launch of the donor development dashboard, Pushpay continues to invest in further progressing the solution, introducing new data and insights for churches. Enhancements include the ability to quickly view changes in giving behavior, which in turn, will enable a church to take action to engage and connect with their community when they might need it most. The dashboard also provides the ability to sort by new date range options — including month, quarter year or a custom range — and much more to help churches with their donor appreciation strategy.
“Our customers are at the heart of every design and development decision at Pushpay and we could not be more excited about the new products and features we’re announcing today,” said Audrey Cheng, Vice President of Product at Pushpay. “We know that these new tools will not only save time, but will provide a more holistic view of congregant data and enable deeper engagement and participation within the church.”
