Access ACS and PDS Connects

Access ACS is an online companion to ACS People Suite, and PDSConnects is an online companion to PDS Church Office. These are useful tools for church staff, group leaders, members, and visitors.

Access ACS and PDSConnects are one in the same. The tool is branded for your product, so it may look different, but the functions are exactly the same. Throughout this guide, the name "Access ACS" refers to both.

With Access ACS, you can:

  • Allow members and visitors to register and pay for events online.
  • Look up or update scheduled contacts while outside the office.
  • Screen and schedule volunteers for church events.
  • Connect members and attendees with ministry opportunities.
  • View specific church calendars and request rooms and equipment.
  • Review all data changes before approving and syncing with ACS People Suite.

Church Life, a free app from ACS Technologies, integrates with Access ACS so you can view individual and organization data, check calendar events, and map visits.
