Amp Fusion Overview

All three interfaces (Amp Fusion, Pulse and Amp Touch) access the same integrated database live over the Internet on our servers. That means no more worries for you about backup, security, networking or disaster recovery.  However, unlike other web-based systems, if you aren’t connected to the Internet, you can still work! You will have the ability to work offline so that you never have downtime; it’s always live!

You get access to your data anytime, anywhere, no matter what. As soon as Amp Fusion detects that you are connected to the Internet, it will seamlessly synchronize your data in the background. And since all the interfaces are web-based, all three interfaces are updated automatically with the latest upgrades from Amp Fusion. You don’t have to worry about complicated software setup or upgrading. We will automatically update the software every time you start the program!

Amp Fusion includes this partial list of features

  • Track all the usual demographic information for every person: birth date, marital status, race, gender, family position, company, title, etc.
  • Track additional demographics helpful for targeting and assessing whether the church is hitting their target: educational level, occupational industry, age group, seeker status, background prior to membership, new resident in the area, baptism occurred at this church or another, marketing method used to attract to the church, etc.

  • Tracking of every person’s history of small group involvement and their position within each group (member, host, apprentice, leader, coach, etc.)
  • Detailed management of small groups:  location, meeting time, leadership structure (division leaders, coaches, leaders.), maturity level (100, 200, 300, 400), gender type (men’s group, women’s group), study curriculum, openness to new members, etc.
  • Detailed management of ministry teams: location, time, leadership & team members, skill requirements, etc.

  • Staff Follow Up Reminder - if there are outstanding follow up requests or people interested in serving in a ministry that a staff person oversees, the staff member will be reminded of these outstanding requests every time they log into Amp Fusion.
  • Fully web-based so that many concurrent users can view, enter and update information in real time.
  • But also capable of running in offline mode with a local copy of your database that can be used anytime, anywhere.  Your data is automatically synchronized with our servers when you are connected to the internet!
  • Amp Fusion is secure and requires users to log in with a username and password. (Role-based permissions can be set for each user for adding, deleting or changing data. You can lock down contribution & pledge data for example.)
