How does MTN work from a technical standpoint?

With MTN, there is no software to load.  MTN operates within a church’s or charity’s web site via links that are simply attached to buttons (e.g. saying “Volunteer Now” or “Most Needed Items”). Each link is customized to display only the needs that the organization wants to show on that particular button (e.g. the needs of a particular internal or external organization).  You can create a template to match your web site so that all pages showing needs will look like you, not MTN. The organization can set up its web site however it would like – showing whatever needs it wants to wherever it wants to.  Users simply click on the buttons to see details about each need and register to sign up. MTN powers those buttons and provides administrator with all of our management and communication software. We provide training videos for every module of our software so you can quickly learn how to use each system at your convenience.

Do we need to get our IT staff involved in implementing MTN?

No, MTN is an Application Service Provider (ASP) so we host and manage the system.   In keeping with the idea of taking work off the church staff, the set-up of MTN is almost entirely done by MTN and involves no IT work on your part.  The implementation process entails very little work for the organization’s staff.  Within 10 minutes, your organization can be registered and have access to the full suite of MTN’s software for managing and communication all of your charitable activities.
