Running Software in the Cloud

Running software in the “cloud” means that you no longer need to buy, install, and maintain software applications yourself. Instead, the applications are located in a shared data center and you access them via the Internet. Another term for cloud computing is Software as a Service, or SaaS.

FellowshipOne is a web-based, church management software solution that resides in the “cloud”. This allows your church to save substantially on hardware, software and personnel costs. You will no longer need to devote resources for hardware on which to run the church software nor personnel to operate and maintain it. This allows the church to focus on its core competency – ministering to people.

What are the advantages of the “Cloud” or “SaaS”?

  • Anytime, anywhere access – It is available anytime, anywhere with just a web browser and an Internet connection.
  • Reduced risk – We provide a professionally managed data center with multiple levels of security, redundancy and backups to ensure your data is safe and secure.
  • No touch, no cost upgrades – We regularly upgrade FellowshipOne with new features and enhancements; the upgrades are free and require no action on the part of the church to install them.
  • Lower total cost of ownership – The overall cost of a cloud-based solution is actually lower due to the reduced costs of maintenance and internal IT support.
