Even small church’s make use of technology ranging from the simple (individual PCs) to the complex (integrating phones, PCs, printers, and network devices.
There are many days when even simple setups present challenges and frustrations for their users.
Many times simply understanding what exactly is wrong so you can seek help is a near impossible task as you try to enter the jargon-filled world of computer/software repair and diagnosis.
IT4Worship will look at the frustrations you are experiencing, find their root causes and determine how best to minimize their impact or eliminate them altogether. This could mean creating a new process for the work environment, or it could mean upgrading hardware or software.
Because we are an independent, private company, you can be assured that any suggestions made will be based solely on what you need.
When technology upgrades are truly required, we will suggest inexpensive or no cost alternatives that we know will work. How do we know? Because these are the same solutions that we use within our company on a daily basis.
Along with computers, networks and internet access can also be sources of frustration when technical help is not readily available.
Networks also present opportunities for efficiency within a church office environment.
Have you ever thought about being able to access your documents and files regardless of where you are located currently?
Have you ever worried about whether important church files (CRA documents, accounting files, building plans, supplier contracts, etc.) were truly secured yet accessible?
All of these are concerns for the modern church in these rapidly evolving technological times.
A properly networked environment can alleviate not only these concerns but other significant quality of life concerns for the minister and church staff.
Many people don’t realize how pastors’ and church administrators’ days can be suddenly turned upside down by the pastoral issues that come up in a congregation.
Being able to access congregational information while on the go and having sure and ready access to work tools and documents when and where its needed helps to reduce stress levels.
IT4Worship will take a close look at office environment and make recommendations on how best to use those existing components to create a more productive work flow.
We will answer questions around the health of your network and those areas where it could be better utilized (like supporting centralized document storage).
Our expertise combined with today’s freely available offerings means that new elements are not synonymous with higher church administration costs.
