Earlier this month KidCheck announced several new improvements in their secure children’s check-in system.
It’s normal for apps and tech solutions to get updates. Many years ago, updates for Windows—for example—came in Service Packs that were released every few years or so; and even these were not major improvements. Fast forward to today, and both operating systems and everyday apps get major updates and changes. Sometimes it’s the design and sometimes it’s important functions. Regular updates have become far more the rule than the exception.
But what about your kid ministry check-in? When was that updated last?
It’s church tech apps and solutions like KidCheck that should be an example to others. Leaving an app or service stagnant without moving forward is a secure way to failure these days. Not only from a business model standpoint—especially when you consider issues like security—but it is a failure to customers, too.
Check-out some of KidCheck’s latest new features:
If you think a “new look” isn’t a big deal, think again.
Sure, it’s nice to have a good looking child check-in system, but think about what it’s like to use this on a tablet or at a computer station with one kid in your arm?
Having a child check-in system does make first time visitors feel more comfortable, but it also serves a great way to improve the overall security and safety of kids.
If a child check-in system isn’t easy to use, what are the chances of it being used to its fullest?
And what do you think it must be like to use a system like this as a first time guest?
Thankfully, KidCheck’s update addresses this—continuing to improve and make the overall check-in process more awesome. They even added multiple language options (65 to be exact), making it easier to switch to and from English. This is especially helpful for both churches whereby English is a second language or churches that have guests and members who speak English as a second language. As someone who lives in another country, I can tell you that when you find things like this in your own language, it’s great. 😀
There’s nothing quite as great as your favorite app getting a new option or feature update.
What I think is so great about KidCheck’s latest update, is it gives children’s ministries something to actually do with all that data they’ve collected. With the new Custom Reports Builder, you can create your own custom data reporting and analysis.
You can watch the kids grow-up and see the kind of fruit your kid’s ministry is producing, but what do the numbers and data look like right now? How about last week? How does this month compare to last year at this same time? These are the kinds of things you can track, plot, and figure out.
Like I said, this gives children’s ministries something to actually do with all that data they’ve collected.
KidCheck is a great children’s check-in solution and should most certainly be considered—especially when you see how much care they put into updating and keeping their solution current with solid updates.
When was the last time your kid ministry child check-in updated the interface and/or features?
Or maybe you need to rethink your entire kid ministry child check-in system?
