A repository is where things can be stored and found, a fancy name for where you keep critical information and usually under a lock-in key.
A digital repository is a collection or archive of online resources or the electronic equivalent of library stacks. Our repository is stored on cloud platforms such as AWS.
The Digital Repository on The Digital Church Platform church software is a secure, structured digital repository with role-based access.
As we have transitioned to the digital age, we have found our digital assets - images, documents, videos, etc. sitting digitally in many different places - the priest's computer, the administrator's computer, and a churchwarden’s computer, to name a few. And then each has their favourite place to store things - google docs, dropbox, their preferred software solution.
Finding the item in question and the most recent version is sometimes challenging when a document is needed. And if the person who is responsible is away or falls ill, it is an even more time-consuming effort to locate it.
Providing churches with a secure, structured digital repository with role-based access through The Digital Church Platform Church software.
It improves the resilience of the administration of your church, and it provides an easily accessible single location for all digital assets, which is particularly important when there is a transition in staff and preparation for visitations.
Access is granted, and individual access can be tracked.
The best practice structure has been developed, but it can easily be changed to your own structure at the click of a button.
