"Clearstream is a force multiplier with our database functions. Managing the hundreds of volunteers and numerous guests we have is made simple through Clearstream."

- Kyle, K.

Platform

We have a killer product team that works hard to create user-friendly software that's easy on the eyes and works as it should. It's not clunky, there's no cluttered navigation or bloated features, and we're always pushing updates.

Metrics and Reporting

You can see transparent metrics in real-time, like how fast your message is sending, opt-ins, opt-outs, incoming replies, and even failed messages.

If you want a snapshot of how your account is doing, you can download a Weekly Report that shows activity and growth from the previous week. To see in-depth information about keyword usage, message history, or which auto-replies are sent within a workflow, download Activity Tables.

Integrations

Because we're geared towards churches, we also integrate with church management software. If you have a Planning Center, Rock RMS, or CCB/Pushpay account, you can sync over existing lists and push new information to create new person profiles, and optionally add someone to a Workflow, Group, or Process Queue.
