Shelby Systems just announced the launch of Arena Select, a new line of its Arena church management software.  Arena Select is loaded with the most commonly requested features optimized for medium to large-sized churches.

“Arena Select provides churches with a powerful toolset that helps connect with their members and grow their ministries.  The easy-to-use interface allows new users and volunteers to quickly make an impact in their work,” said Frank Canady, President of Shelby Systems.  “Shelby Systems has a strong history of developing quality software products that support faith-based organizations in serving the Kingdom, and the introduction of Arena Select certainly continues this trend.”

Arena Select is ideal for the church that wants an intuitive, powerful way of expanding its ministry. Key elements include membership and contact management, superior reporting tools, and simple grouping and search options – all accessible via the internet.  With connectivity from virtually anywhere, an Arena user has all the tools needed to work from the office, home, or on the road. The addition of items such as Mission Trip Management, as well as Check-In and Contributions, round out a thorough set of features.  Both staff and members will appreciate the convenience of features such as Online Giving and Event Registration.

“Since Arena was launched in 2007, we have continually enhanced the feature set based on feedback from our customers and prospective customers”, explained Mark White, Product Manager of Arena.  “Increasingly, we’ve seen interest from a large number of churches who are impressed with the feature set of Arena, but don’t quite require the full-blown version for their organization.  We listened to this feedback and designed Arena Select to be the perfect fit for their needs.”

The original Arena product will now be known as Arena Premium – and contains features not included in Arena Select.  Web Publishing, Assignments and the ability to add Community-created modules are the most notable of these.
