ParishSOFT is currently the only software that truly supports a diocesan model. It allows staff to easily manage multiple parishes, and for parishes to collaborate with each other on a single shared platform. The software is used in over 80 U.S. dioceses.
Maintaining accurate staff assignments in ParishSOFT reduces routine requests from Central Services for staff contact lists from parishes. It allows a family’s demographic information to be shared among multiple parishes. For example, parishes that are clustered or who share a single bookkeeper or business manager can easily manage multiple locations through a single user interface, and only have access to the parishes and information authorized by the respective parishes. Overall, by using ParishSOFT, we are able to standardize on a single platform and be good stewards of data.
