ABOUT THE COMPANY

Key features of our company

Responsive

No need to install software! No need to maintain infrastructure. Our software works on PC, Mac, tablet computers, and even smart phones.

Passion

This software was born from a deep commitment of its founders to provide a faster, less expensive, and less complex capability to handle the daily aspects of running temples and synagogues. We are of the belief that religious institutions should devote precious resources, both human and financial, to the goals of the institution, rather than back-office maintenance.

Design

Designed from the ground up to be accessible from any browser, any location. Controls what each user can see and/or update. For those who prefer to operate on a local copy of data, offers spreadsheet download.

Time

Offers flexible, time-saving capabilities, such as producing contribution letters, printing labels, printing addresses onto envelopes, and spreadsheet upload for input of high-volume data.

FEATURES

Track membership, including family units and the individuals in those families.

Membership
  • Families, with attributes such as billing address, formal and informal names, household phone numbers.
  • Accommodates two addresses, especially useful in those areas of the country that experience seasonal attendance.
  • Members, with attributes such as name, business address, personal cell phone, age, Kohen/Levi/Yisrael, Torah portion, et al.
  • Any number of free-form attributes can be defined, and then tagged to either families or members–e.g., Sisterhood, Choir, Snail-mail only.
  • For mass maintenance, ShalomCloud accepts spreadsheet uploads for both families and members. A real time-saver.
  • Member Portal! Congregants can now maintain their own demographic data--names and addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, Bar/Bat Mitzvah dates, birthdays, anniversaries, et al.

Track incoming funds, optionally applying them to receivables

They will see their outstanding items; and they will see all payments that posted during a period of their choosing. The user portal screens are especially designed to be mobile-friendly, giving your congregants the convenience of accessing updated information on their oft-used smart phone.

Record Yahrzeit dates, and relationships among Yahrzeits and synagogue members.

Yahrzeits
  • ShalomCloud Yahrzeit Demo from Norman Snyder on Vimeo.

  • Maintain Yahrzeit information, by entering the name, Gregorian date of death, and a flag for before or after sunset. System looks up and stores the corresponding Hebrew date.
  • For those congregations who maintain Yahrzeit plaques, the system records the location of the plaque. This is useful for efficient maintenance of the Yahrzeit lamps, often associated with the Yarhzeit commemoration.
  • ShalomCloud provides a way to associate Yahrzeits to the members of the congregation who wish to be informed of forthcoming dates.

Security, authorizations

Security
  • Log on via user code and password
  • Passwords are stored encrypted, so not even the system administrator can read them
  • System administrator assigns a profile for each user
  • That Profile controls each function, as to no access, read only, or read and write

Queries and Reports

Queries
  • Graphs and Charts! Best understood via this five-minute video:

Why the Cloud?

Nothing to install. No capital expenditure--pay as you go with subscription-based model.

No long-term contracts. If at any time you're unhappy and wish to leave us, we'll ensure that your data is made available to you on spreadsheets, and further payments will stop.

Enhancements and upgrades available immediately--no need to run through tricky installation procedures for each PC.

Your data resides in the world's leading cloud infrastructure company.

Office personnel, Board of Directors, designated committee chairs, etc., can log in and access single, reliable copy of data, at a time and place of their choosing.

With the availability of the Member Portal, your congregants, as you see fit, can access their information, via smart phone, tablet, or computer. This includes pledge payments and contributions, which flow directly into the synagogue management system. This avoids manual entry and promotes accuracy.
