The Analysis and the Application of Enterprise Resource Planning in Church Organizations

Astrid Lestari Tungadi and Elisabeth    

Abstract: The application of information technology has been widely used in both profit and non–profit oriented organizations such as in churches. Gereja Katolik Santa Perawan Maria Diangkat ke Surga (GKSPMDkS) is one of the Catholic Churches in the city of Makassar. Most of the things done by the church for the community are still manually executed, these include: data collection, requests for certificates and other services and because of this, these activities are slow and unorganized. The human resources personnel of the church are very few compared to the number of people they serve in the community. And so, getting current information on church services and programs, most times does not go down well between the Parish Pastor and members of the Pastoral Council and due to this and so, the use of information technology is needed to help the service process. And one of such technology is the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). The ERP is a way managing company resources using information technology. And implementing it in GKSPMDkS is expected to improve the service delivery and help to integrate communication between the community and the church. The components in the ERP system in the GKSPMDkS are financial inventory, community service, service process, HR management information distribution and sales of spiritual objects. All these components work together to improve the effectiveness of services through the use of the ICT. The results of the TELOS analysis indicated that the ERP system is workable and feasible in GKSPMDkS but requires a serious IT strategic planning as its basis of implementation.
