Feature... Data Capture (Text Bots)

Keeping the conversation going is an essential part of a strong, healthy relationship, and for these connections to be effective, you must have the right information at the right time. For example, feedback about who’s interested in your sermon topics, life groups, and church events, so you can be sure you are really answering the needs of your flock. Or keeping your contact information updated, so texts and emails arrive at their intended destinations. And what about capturing and updating your new guest data?

Enter the PastorsLine Church Communication System, no links, Data Capture (Text Bot) feature. A text bot is an automated series of text messages. Using a few questions that prompt a few quick responses, text bots enable you to capture real time, relevant information for all your needs.


Is capturing needed information becoming overwhelming?

Are you (and your staff...if you have any) spending lots of time running after people’s data? If it feels like a never-ending job, that’s because it is. You are never going to finish. Perhaps you are feeling that the time you are spending on this could be better spent on other things...and you are right.

Automating your information capture is a great solution for several important reasons.

First, you are able to capture MORE information with FEWER resources. After setting up a text bot driven data capture, it runs, over and over, without you doing anything.

Second, text bots don’t care when they work. They never eat, sleep, or need family time. So, they are available 24/7/365, increasing communication flexibility.

Here’s how data capture with text bots can improve your church communication, and in turn, your relationships with your ministry.

The human touch

“Text bot” automatically calls to mind “robot”, as in impersonal and unfeeling. Our text bots are neither.

Overall, texts are the most opened, fastest read and most responded to type of communication. When you think about your audience’s needs like Jesus did, texting becomes the preferred way for Pastors to do more in less time, staying connected to their audience’s needs while creating some insulation between their own spaces and those of their audience.
