Case Study: Using MoCo SMS Suite in Church

We will illustrate how MoCo SMS Suite can be deployed in various sectors by using different real-life case studies. In this article, we will show you how MoCo SMS Suite can be used in churches. The church name in this article is not the actual name.

Problem:

The committee of St Peter’s Church wanted to computerize their church operation and have an effective communication platform to engage their younger members. Their committee feels that SMS would be a very effective communication medium and wished to have a system which can perform the following tasks:

1. Disseminate information to its members. The committee used to send email to their members, but the response isn’t satisfactory. They felt that SMS would be a more effective communication medium.
2. Send sms reminders to inform their members of any cell group meetings or events
3. Conduct SMS survey for the church

Our Solutions:

We recommended our MoCo SMS Suite Professional edition to the church’s committee.

For problem 1:

The IT administrator for the church consolidated their member database into excel files, and then import them into MoCo SMS Suite. The members are grouped into their different cell groups.

The committee used MoCo SMS Suite to send out sms to their members to inform them of any matters.

For problem 2:

The IT admin used MoCo SMS Suite’s Appointment Book to schedule events, gatherings and cell group meetups. The system will automatically send out sms reminders to remind the members of these events.

For problem 3:

In an attempt to attract more young members, the church decided to use MoCo to engage their current young members and conduct SMS surveys for the church.

For example, they conducted a SMS survey to let their members vote for their preferred christmas celebration:

The survey allows each member to vote for three of their most preferred type of celebrations. The sms survey results were tabulated by MoCo:
