You're getting ready to leave for church on a Sunday morning. A notification pings your cell phone to tell you what the traffic looks like on the way to church and the day's weather forecast... all without even having to open an app. That's automation!
Automations in ChurchTrac enable you to automate many of your tasks and responsibilities. Now you can cut down the time you spend in your church database. Tasks that take 5 minutes can now take as little as 5 seconds!
