Automate Financial Tasks
Automate Financial Tasks
Save time and money with electronic systems.

Automation eliminates as many manual tasks as possible, reduces human error, and streamlines various processes. To automate a financial task, a treasurer or financial manager identifies repeatable, logical, mundane tasks that are done on a weekly, monthly, or annual basis. Once identified, a financial manager works to find and optimize available technology to help reduce the time it takes to do these tasks.

Recording donations
Simple e-giving systems reduce the time it takes to record donations, and they import directly into a donor management system. This allows both you and your donor to see donation history in real-time. Consider asking donors to set up recurring online gifts, specifically during the summer months, when people go on vacations and giving to the church tends to take a dip.

Pinpointing dips in giving
An automated process can trigger an email to the appropriate church leader when someone stops giving. Then a church leader can call the donor who has stopped giving, and that may lead to an opportunity to minister to that person. Maybe the person lost a job, retired, became upset over a rumor, or is going through some tough financial times.
