Have you recently purchased or are planning to purchase one of our programs? PDS Services can help you convert your existing data into your PDS program.
Power outages and network failures can cause table corruption or even data loss. Data Services can help remedy these unfortunate situations by cleaning up data as needed.
If your parish has PDS Church Office, Formation Office and/or School Office programs running independently of each other or you if have two or more parishes sharing one pastor or administrative office, you may want to merge these databases so that it can be managed from one PDS Office program while continuing to keep each church's membership separate for reporting. We are able to merge databases together from different PDS Office systems into one. The process takes teamwork between the Data Services team and the people in your organization. Typically, work has to be done in the system after the files are returned to you. Through the entire process, we are here to help address any questions or issues that may arise before or after the merge.
