Make Your Case: Why Associations Are Moving to Platforms

You deserve a solution that makes everyone’s job easier, drives revenue growth for the association, simplifies reporting for your board, and energizes engagement with your membership.

But it’s important to make sure the system is scalable, easy to update, and cost effective.

Check out our helpful quiz to learn how your current solution stacks up—and discover how to build your criteria for transforming association management.

Let’s Make Your Case for Transformation

More than 1/3 of associations have
outdated software.

  • An outgrown legacy AMS that no longer fits your needs
  • Complex, high-maintenance customizations and integrations
  • Siloed systems, departments, and data
  • Tedious, manual tasks and workarounds
  • Overwhelming system maintenance and upgrade processes

If your association can’t provide the experience that
users are looking for, they’ll find it elsewhere.

“An enterprise business solution is no longer just ‘nice to have.’ Associations today face stiff competition for market influence, members, and staff and IT resources. An association platform positions the organization in the virtual world in ways that a legacy AMS software solution just can’t.”
Dirk Behrends, Vice President of Association Solutions
