The PDS OnDemand product is the cloud solution for PDS. This means your PDS Church Office program would be hosted in the cloud and not on your local computer or local network.
Switching to the PDS OnDemand solution benefits your parish in the following ways:
The Sacramental Register module in PDS allows your parish to track and search parishioner sacramental records electronically.
For current PDS customers, the cost to switch to the PDS OnDemand solution is $125. The good news is the Diocese will pay for the switch over cost, so it's FREE for the parish. However, the parish will be responsible for the monthly subscription fee.
For Diocese of Honolulu parishes, the discounted monthly subscription cost is $48.00 per month for two users on the Church Office module. If your parish has more than two users and/or uses other modules such as Formation Office, additional costs will be incurred. Please note, this fee will replace the PDS software maintenance fee you may currently be paying.
The Diocesan Finance Office will bill the parish for the PDS OnDemand monthly subscription fee (similarly to the Right Networks billing).
The Diocese negotiated an agreement with PDS wherein our parishes can get a discount on the monthly subscription fee, but one of the conditions of this agreement was that PDS would bill the Diocese for the costs and in turn the Diocese would bill the parishes.
This is an OPTIONAL program for all parishes. We are NOT mandating the use of PDS, but we highly encourage parishes to use the PDS Church Office program with the OnDemand solution. Should your parish choose to move from a non-PDS program to PDS, the Diocese can help your parish pay for the data conversion cost to PDS.
Please contact Maria Treptow at PDS via email at Maria.Treptow@acstechnologies.com or by phone at (602) 567-7770.
Training is available from PDS via webinar, or they can also do in-person training at a cost. Please be aware that the Diocese is working on putting together a regular PDS training program for our parishes.
