Pushpay and Resi Join Forces to Deliver Cutting-Edge Engagement Technology
Big news! We’re excited to welcome Resi Media to the Pushpay family. We announced today we’ve agreed to acquire Resi, an industry leading video streaming platform, and we can’t wait for what’s ahead as our organizations come together to deliver the most cutting-edge digital engagement solutions in the market.
Streaming is on the Rise
So, why Resi? As you’ve experienced first-hand, a digital strategy is essential in order to increase generosity and engage with your community- whether in person or online. As churches and organizations adopt a more holistic digital approach to achieving their mission, the demand for video is only increasing. In fact, streaming was one of the top technology trends in the world in 2020, and it’s here to stay.
For churches in particular, more than 95% of pastors reported they leveraged some form of streaming technology in 2020 to share their services online and reach their community during the pandemic. Sound familiar? As organizations continue to navigate the complexities of in-person vs online, we know the future of Church will be a hybrid model. There’s never been a more important time than now to invest in the right technology to help you reach, engage, and grow your community.
Together, We Understand the Digital Needs of the Church
If you’re not familiar with Resi Media yet, you’re in for a treat. Not only do they deliver the most reliable live streaming technology in the market – think end-to-end streaming for your website, social media, apps, and remote locations – the Resi team understands the challenges your organization faces today.
Resi and Pushpay were founded with similar missions – to deliver superior technological solutions for churches to help them reach, engage, and grow their audience. Today, Resi serves more than 70% of the top 100 churches in the US (according to the Outreach 100 list), in addition to thousands of other nonprofit and corporate customers.
The Future is Bright for Our Customers
While things might look the same for a while, we look forward to more closely integrating our products in the future to provide mobile apps, digital giving, live streamed and on-demand media, relationship management software, and much more – all in one place. Over time, we will be joining forces to deliver even more innovative products for growth and engagement of your community like never before.
We sat down with Jeff Jones, Senior Pastor at Chase Oaks Church in Texas, and here’s what he said when asked about the potential of Pushpay and Resi coming together under one roof:
“It’s difficult to think of a more incredible partnership to help us have the right technology to grow and engage our congregation both in-person and online than combining Pushpay and Resi. Our church has been leveraging Pushpay technology for years to help us connect with our church family and make giving easier. Resi allows us to reach tens of thousands of people online and scale our multisite campus model to reach more people in their communities. As our church continues to invest in technology to help support future growth, we could not be more excited about the untapped potential of these two organizations coming together and the opportunities ahead. Resi and Pushpay have individually made such a significant impact for us, and as a current customer, we look forward to the possibilities of integration to create better digital and in-person environments that allow our community to come as they are, be transformed, and make a difference.”
Culture of Innovation
One of the things we love about the Resi team is their obsession with their customers. Not only do they work hard to innovate and deliver the technology their customers need, they love to celebrate alongside them and work together to turn dreams into realities. For those that have been following our journey at Pushpay for a while, you know we love nothing more than to experience the joy with our customers after hitting it out of the park with innovative product launches or creative new feature rollouts. We love fostering a culture of innovation and celebration, and we’re excited to keep that momentum going with our new friends at Resi.
If you’re a current customer, or a joint Pushpay and Resi Media customer, we hope you join us in celebrating today’s announcement.
** We anticipate the acquisition to be completed by the end of the month, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions, at which point we’ll officially come together under one roof.
