OurChurch.Com is excited to announce a new event registration component now available as a part of its custom website design service, Custom CMS Express. The event registration component enables an organization to manage sign-ups for activities - classes, seminars, trips, concerts, and more Ė through its website.

Current Predicament
Anyone who has ever coordinated an event using paper sign-up sheets knows how challenging that can be. Sign-up sheets get lost, they often need to be in more than one location, people fill them out illegibly, and so on. Larger events require many sheets. Even small churches and ministries may have a dozen or more events open for registration at a time resulting in a chaotic mess of sign-up sheets.

Improving Your Situation
With OurChurch.Comís new event registration system, paper sign-up sheets can become a thing of the past. Churches can manage registrations for Bible studies, youth trips, Vacation Bible School, and volunteer teams all online. Schools can manage registrations for classes, field trips, and extra curricular activities through their website. Ministries can manage registrations for seminars and concerts. This makes coordinating events easier and less time-consuming for you and your staff. Plus it makes it easier for people to sign-up for activities, which will increase participation.

Features

- Enables people to register for an event or activity from any Internet-accessible computer.
- Registration forms can be customized to request additional information.
- No limit to the number or size of events that can be managed.
- Integrates with PayPal to enable online payment of registration fees or ticket prices
- Enables staff to check registrations from any Internet-accessible computer.
- Integrates with calendar so when people are viewing information about an upcoming event in the calendar, they are one click away from a registration form.
- Integrates with user registration system so once a person registers a username on your website, they donít have to re-enter contact info every time they register for an activity or event.
- Staff can easily send email to everyone registered for a particular event.
- If you like, you can continue to allow people to sign-up using paper forms or by calling into the office. Administrative staff can easily transfer the information into the online registration system.

The Alternatives
There are several companies that provide online event registration services, however, OurChurch.Comís event registration component has some distinct advantages.

- Appearance. This component is an installed part of the organizations website. The pages where people register have the organizations domain name and look exactly like the rest of the website. Event registration services require organizations to link to their companyís website and the pages usually look like a separate site.

- Integration. Because our event registration component is a part of the content management system, it integrates with the calendar and user registration aspects of the site. It reduces confusion for your users. It is also managed in the same administrative interface as the rest of the site, which greatly simplifies things for your staff.

- Cost. For our event registration component, there is a very reasonable one-time cost that covers installation, configuration, and training. Event registration service companies charge $50-$200 per month for their services. Youíll save hundreds and possibly thousands of dollars over time with our component.

This event registration component is only available as a part of OurChurch.Comís custom website design service, Custom CMS Express. For many organizations, the time and efficiency youíll gain from the event registration component alone make a new custom site worthwhile. If you are considering an online event registration service or already using one, in most cases OurChurch.Com can develop a brand new custom designed website with the event registration component for less than you would pay for event registration service alone.

This sounds like something that could be of value. As a small church, not a business, we have limited resources so I would have to weigh the expense with the value or use of such a feature. How much is this feature going to cost?
