About the Client (Emmanuel Assembly of God)

 
Item 1

The story of Emmanuel began in 1958, in a rented single-storey terrace house at 25 Everitt Road. It was then a branch of Elim Church and was called Elim Chapel.

The name “Emmanuel Assembly of God” was adopted in 1969 when the church became a sovereign church affiliated to the Assemblies of God of Singapore. As the Lord added new souls to Emmanuel, the church soon outgrew its facilities and, from 1980, it became necessary to meet at rented halls for Sunday morning services.

Client Business Challenge

 

The entire information in the organization is spread across different locations and in different formats. Most of the processes are manual and has no system except an accounting package. The members profile is used to maintain manually in the excel sheet and was difficult to manage it as there is no centralized accessibility and control to maintain it. The cell group leaders maintaining multiple versions of the members information, and difficulty communicating with the groups.
