Aplos announced a partnership with leading cloud-based church management software company, Church Community Builder. Through this partnership, Aplos and Church Community Builder will integrate their systems to fulfill a need in the market by creating a unified solution that brings together true fund accounting and church management software.
This API integration enables Church Community Builder with the capability to securely share real-time data with Aplos. All contributions collected in Church Community Builder will automatically be recorded within Aplos Accounting. This ensures that churches have more accurate bookkeeping, less duplicate data entry, and improves the accuracy of reports to reflect real-time giving, allowing customers to track giving and financials seamlessly.
“Our new partnership and integration with Aplos Software is not only groundbreaking but will also greatly decrease the amount of administrative time that administrators currently have with double-entry processes,” says Brian Ferris, Ecosystem Product Manager, Church Community Builder. “Through personal interaction with the Aplos Software team, their desire to see the growth of sustainable and thriving ministry with the use of good processes and their incredible tools became quickly evident. There is an undeniable heartbeat alignment that exists between our companies.”
Both companies serve small-to-large-sized churches with cloud-based software. Aplos, a leading provider of online fund accounting software, served over 14,000 organizations last year. Churches have unique accounting needs, including tracking designated funds, departmental accounting, multi-site tracking, and generating granular reports. When churches use small business accounting software, such as QuickBooks, the accounting can get complicated fast with workarounds and manual spreadsheets to track the nonprofit data needed. That is why Aplos designed an accounting software specific for these unique needs, so it is simpler for churches to correctly manage their finances and prepare the reports they need to demonstrate funds are used correctly.
“Providing the right tools to those who are responsible for maintaining the health and performance of their church is crucial to their growth and success,” says Tim Goetz, CEO of Aplos. “We are thrilled to put that intelligence at their fingertips with this partnership so they can continue to demonstrate good stewardship to their board and supporters.”
