CMIS

Features

Members and their related data remain the bed rock of CMIS. It captures all biographical data of a member that is relevant to the church. It will enable the church to be part of activities such as birthdays, wedding anniversaries and other occasions that are dear to the heart of members. The church can use the system to automatically or manually send congratulatory messages to church members when such events are detected by the system. One key objective of CMIS is to build a complete church history for each member. The system will track each member from the very first visit, through membership classes, baptism, departmental activities, weddings, funerals (if the unfortunate happens), etc., as they happen.

Key features of this module include:

  • Store member details such as marital status, occupation, gender, date of birth and more.
  • Store information on ceremonies such as baptisms, weddings, and funerals.
  • Add and group members into families and relations.
  • Track the departments and special groups to which each member belongs.
  • Search for members by name, gender, nationality etc.
  • Perform intelligent data analyses on membership data

Be it pastors, departmental heads or all females in the church; any group of people can be filtered out and sent a message either through mail or SMS.

For example CMIS can be set to send birthday wishes to all birthday celebrants every day.
