Listening to Caleb talk about what they are doing at the Ripon church of Christ with this app is amazing. This app basically allows you to keep attendance for classes and events. You can import a list of names from an Excel spreadsheet and then track who is there and who is not. With a click of a button the attendance reports can be emailed to important ministry leaders and you can also keep track of who is missing for follow-up. Ministry leaders should give serious consideration to this app and look into how it can leveraged into your church information system.
