DALLAS, TX – June 7, 2011 – Fellowship Technologies, a newly acquired business unit of Active Network and the developers of Fellowship One® church management software, recommends UpperRoom Technologies (URT) as its preferred development firm for church partners looking to build custom applications or connect third party applications to Fellowship One.
"We look forward to helping current and future Fellowship One church partners take their ministries to the next level," said UpperRoom Technologies CEO Andy Ivankovich. "In many ways, a church’s website is the front door to their ministry. Churches need more than fancy graphics and the latest trends in design – they need an effective strategy to reach people on the web – which we can help them accomplish."
The new partnership will allow Fellowship Technologies to extend the power of Fellowship One church management software to its business partners and churches. UpperRoom Technologies has advanced expertise in Fellowship One software and is uniquely qualified to leverage this knowledge through their breadth of technologies and disciplines including custom application development in multiple languages, development maintenance and service, live video streaming and sermon audio and video archiving.
"Fellowship Technologies recognizes that there are many options available to churches when it comes to customizing applications and we want to empower our church partners to successfully integrate their initiatives with Fellowship One," said Jeff Hook, general manager of Fellowship Technologies. "We feel confident that UpperRoom Technologies provides the best development capabilities for our users."
Fellowship One is the leading 100% web-based church management software used by ministries around the world. The product now supports over 1,800 church and non-profit organizations. Fellowship One and related church management assets were acquired by Active Network from Dallas-based Fellowship Technologies L.P. in February 2011.
