By the Book is a great ChCMS solution.
Their church software suite covers a number of needs:
- Membership Database
- Contribution Tracking
- Donation Reporting
- Accounting Integration
- Child Check-In
By the Book has some great news — Child Check In can now be used on just about any tablet or smartphone!
By the Book Child Roll Call Mobile Check-In
First off, I must say, I have actually demoed this child check-in system. Although they hadn’t put the finishing touches on it yet, I was able to see it in all it’s glory.
The By the Book Child Roll Call Mobile Check In solution can be ran as a stand alone system. So, if you already love your current ChMS or don’t need one, By the Book’s system will work for you. However, since this is one of a number of different nodes in the entire By the Book system, I would recommend taking a look at their entire system if you’re interesting in diving into the world of ChCMS. There’s nothing more epic than running a ChMS that integrates!
One of the first questions I had when looking at By the Book’s new mobile system, was its flexibility.
I was pleasantly surprised!
Not only was I told it could run on an iPad, but it could also run on a Amazon Fire and I personally ran it on my iPod touch! Imagine working in the children’s ministry department during check-in, and being able to check on a child or class via an iPod or smartphone?
You can setup multiple check-in stations with printers, so you can have multiple campuses tied into one system, but have your labels printed at the right campus.
