FLORENCE, S.C., April 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ACS Technologies®, the world's leading provider of church management software and service solutions, has acquired Helpmate Technology Solutions, including its Church Helpmate™ solution, which is desktop church management software with more than 2,000 users across the country. United by a common mission to help churches grow and make disciples, both companies see this merger as a welcomed opportunity to better serve Helpmate clients long into the future with deeper resources to develop next generation software, while providing superior service.
For ACS Technologies, bringing Helpmate into the family is part of the company's growth strategy to its next generation, cloud solution, Realm®. For Helpmate Technology Solutions, Realm is the product they know will better serve their clients. Also, with the largest support team in the industry, ACS Technologies is ready to seamlessly transition Helpmate clients into the future with Realm.
Designed with church staff and congregation in mind, Realm provides a totally mobile experience that offers staff administration and member engagement in one whole church tool. It integrates administration, accounting, and community into the daily life of the church.
"We are excited to welcome the Helpmate Technology Solutions team and clients to the ACS Technologies family," said Marvin Owen, President of ACS Technologies. "It's our honor to partner with trusted friends at Helpmate who share our passionate commitment to serving the church. We are truly humbled that, out of all of their options, Helpmate chose to partner with ACS Technologies. We always put our clients first, and for current Helpmate clients, we'll do the same for you. We're here to help you in every aspect of your ministry now and in the future."
"We believe ACS Technologies' solution, Realm, is everything a modern church management tool should be. It's the perfect upgrade and replacement for the Church Helpmate product for today's churches," said Paul Schuster, Owner, Founder, and President of Helpmate Technology Solutions. "It's supported by a company whose commitment to service, excellence, and commitment to growing the Kingdom is second to none. After much prayer, we knew the best solution for our clients was not to rebuild our software, but rather to join with trusted friends who have already built a solution we believe in wholeheartedly."
The ACS Technologies team is dedicated to working alongside Helpmate Technology Solutions to ensure current Helpmate clients receive top notch service as they begin transitioning to ACS Technologies' next generation ministry software, Realm.
