We Built a Better Builder.


Redesigned Look and Feel

It wasn't enough to simply add a bunch of stuff and call it an upgrade. We had to give Builder a fresh coat of paint, too. Using the latest development technologies, Builder now keeps more information at your fingertips while showing you only what you need to know. It's the best of both worlds.

Builder looks a lot better.

Better Workflow

No one wants to jump from screen to screen all the time: moving this, adjusting that, finding where you left that option you wanted to change. That's why Builder 2 has been reworked according to your feedback to put everything you need in fewer steps. Whether you're changing an outline or editing a prayer, it's all done on the same screen.

Rearrange elements and search at the same time.

Search Is Everywhere

Now, it doesn't matter what you're doing or where you are in Builder; searching for that missing something is only a click away. Just type in what you're looking for. Hymn number? Found it. Word in the text? Found it. Scripture reference? Found it! And when you're done looking, you can go back to what you were doing just as easily.

Multiple categories; intelligent search terms.

More Integration

Buidler 2 has the ability to import services from Creative Worship, for unprecedented synergy with Lutheran Service Book. You can create your own elements and orders of worship with ease and style, then use them for any given Sunday. And, Builder 2 exports to more file formats than ever before, including Word and PowerPoint 2007.

Add and alter your own resources at will.

Better Support; More Help

Builder 2 has a brand new community Web site designed to serve you and give you more information. A product blog, comprehensive online help system with picture and video tutorials, and even a discussion area make it easier for you to find information and ask for assistance—without needing to wait on hold or interrupt your day.

Get the assistance you need without a lot of work.
