People FAQ

What is People?
Close People is a church management system (ChMS) that makes it easy to centralize your contacts and stay up-to-date with your church community.

What is ChMS?

Church Management Software (ChMS) is a tool that helps you engage your community, equip your team, reduce administration time, grow your people, and steward the resources God has entrusted you with.

What is the difference between People and Elvanto?

Elvanto is currently the best ChMS solution for larger churches and is our enterprise product for serving those customers that want a robust, full-featured church database management system.

Tithely People is the next generation of Elvanto, and we are actively developing it into the best church management system on the market. We have already added great new features like small group management, affordable and easy to use Background Checks, Relationships and Households, and a beautiful easy-to-use interface that integrates seamlessly with other Tithely products such as Custom church apps, Messaging and Giving.

Soon we will add features in Tithely People for Events, Group Management, Check-In, Service Planning and more. By the end of 2021 we anticipate that 80% of churches will have all of the ChMS features they actively use or need within Tithely People, with more advanced features coming in 2022.

Can I switch from Elvanto to People?

If you’re currently using Elvanto, we believe it is the best option for your church at this moment, however if your church wants to move from Elvanto to Tithely People, you are welcome to do that anytime, and our team can help you every step of the way. 

Soon you’ll be able to use two-way syncing tools that will allow you to use new Tithely People features like Messaging, Groups, and Background Checks using your data from Elvanto. If you’re an existing Elvanto user, you’ll essentially be able to use both Elvanto and Tithely People, and have your information sync between the two platforms.
