A sweet, contained way to connect

What do you like best?

The security of the forums. The specific group that I am a part of on the city (Dirty Girls Ministries) feels contained in a way that helps community build naturally.

What do you dislike?

I really like almost all aspects of this service. It could probably use an aesthetic update, but other than that, it is great from a user's perspective.

Recommendations to others considering the product

With a bit of setup and moderation, this community management software could be a fantastic tool for your company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been a part of The City as a user and would love to explore the administrative side. I could see this really helping build the community and social aspect of connecting our staff together with minimal management/upkeep needed.

The City

What do you like best?

The City is a convenient platform that connects the church members with church leaders. It's a great all in one place to have information be mass sent to church members for updates and general information that is perfect if you missed an announcement at church. One of the cool pieces of info. that a church sent was the setlist for their worship times. I also really enjoyed that it consistently sent emails every week with ease.

What do you dislike?

The idea of the City is great and helps provide a streamlined process for church and member interactions. The things that are difficult would be the interface and ease of use. The software provides member profiles for church members but it'd be useful to be able to do more with those profiles rather than just have basic information about the people.

Great Concept, Still Needing Some Improvements

What do you like best?

The idea of a "social" network for a church is great. Small groups, sharing information etc. Communication does seem to improve, but don't implementing it so it becomes a substitute for people actually getting together in real life.

What do you dislike?

The interface seems clunky. Need to better improve these people (adults and kids) are a family. When one wants to look at Family units and see a family picture it would be nice. Need easier way for a Sunday school teacher to see pictures of his or her "kids". That may not be old enough for an account.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Communication and sharing as an alternative to 5 or 10 separate Facebok groups. The groups inside The City are cleanly listed for your church.

The City is a unique church software for leaders wanting specific tools.

What do you like best?

I like that The City allowed me to easily send information to multiple platforms. If I need to send an email, tweet, or Facebook post all at once I'm able to do that. I also love that it auto updates to ACS, that is a huge plus!!!

What do you dislike?

It's another app. Getting people to use the apps they already have is easy. But getting them to add another app or access a new website, that can be tough to get done across the board. I'd prefer it be something that can be logged into via Facebook, for example.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You should try this out, especially if you use ACS already. It provides a vast assortment of tools to use for communication and community engagement. I personally preferred to simply use Facebook for these things, even though there are significantly less tools to use. The extra stuff ultimately wasn't what I was looking for, but perhaps it is what you're looking for.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The City helps with ease of communication, ease of community conversation and prayer requests. Those that actually log in and use it, they seem to really enjoy engaging one another.

Could of been better

What do you like best?

The City is nice because it has all the information about people in the congregation. It was also nice that you could make donations through the City. I work for the non profit side of the church and this was helpful for us because people could donate to the church and to our non profit.

What do you dislike?

Its took a long time to load, there wasn't as many functions as I would of liked. We ultimately when with another program because there wasn't enough features needed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We have found that we like Ministry Platform better

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keeping track of those in the congregation and knowing how to contact them. It was also nice that you could send messages to certain people in group that went directly to their email. That feature was used a lot. We realized later that it was a easy way to get donations for our non-profit which was something we weren't counting on at the beginning.

The City

What do you like best?

I liked that there is a community board where that you can type in responses and discussion and you can set when you get updates. I like that you can set updates for daily, immediate, or weekly. I like that you got an email snapshot of what happened online during the day. I did like that you could have various subgroups within your group so you don't inundate the entire group.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that it seemed dated and it is very klunky. It isn't always easy to navigate the pages. It didn't seem very user friendly. Uploading documents or photos was not easy and wasn't visually appealing. It was also costly to get what we were looking for just for a social platform.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check out the price of the The City for your congregation and see if it really worth it. With Facebook pages and groups now you are able to use some of those social media features for free.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

At the time, we were trying to solve the issue of community engagement. We were making sure that the church announcements were being heard and that service teams were being formed. We were using it as a social media platform and a small group platform.
