Prediction 2: Mobile Devices
Mobile phones and devices will play an increasingly popular role. Mobile devices will be used for employee/volunteer training, punching in/out, security clearance, checking kids in/out, and interacting with your church during service. Having a website/blog/twitter/facebook/google+/tumblr/etc…. is increasingly the norm. We’re just now starting to move into the area of having church apps. Right now, only those churches willing to invest thousands of dollars are able to have one. However, this will soon change. Technology will get cheaper and more and more app developers will be willing to work for less. Having a nice website used to cost you thousands, now an organization can have their own website for free or for very little. In the same way, apps that now cost thousands will soon be available for almost nothing. Also, laptops will become less popular as mobile devices, the cloud, and wireless capability, become more powerful.
How will technology direct your organization?
