Nigeria: Software Firm Introduces Mobile Application for Churches
Software Development Company, eKnowvate Solutions Limited, a mobile applications development company, has introduced a new mobile application into the Nigerian market for churches to effectively manage discipleship and create interactive engagement with the wide body of the church.
The mobile application could be made available on Blackberry, iPhone and Android mobile platforms, is specified to bring church overseers and administrators closer to the congregation, through a 2-way information platform that is guaranteed to bring about a more enriching fellowship.
Marketing Manager, eKnowvate Solutions, Mrs. Ayomiku Ojeyomi, noted that the new Flockcare mobile application which can be specially branded for any church with its colours and made available for download globally in the Apple store and Android marketplace, would offer overwhelming benefits to church leaders and administrators who subscribe to it. The application she noted, would offer the subscribing church members instant access to audio sermons and teachings of Sunday service, mid-week and special programmes directly uploaded and made available all the time and anywhere. It allows uploads, live streaming, downloads for members' consistent spiritual growth.
According to her, "The Flockcare application enables effortless upload of video clips and allows seamless integration with YouTube. Videos can be streamed, allowing the church congregation to view them wherever they go and can also help connect the congregation in a prayer wall as it allows members to stay connected as users and post individual prayer requests from their smart phones, while others can respond by committing to pray while the system's administrator will have the ability to moderate posts to the church's prayer wall."
Other benefits offered by the software according to Ojeyomi include alert notifications, upload of photos and church events into albums, online giving by debit card and other electronic platforms, and access to church database directory from the mobile application.
