Growing Memberships for Nonprofit Organization
Case Study: Online Membership Management Portal
A non-profit organization, with members spread across the United States, was seeking to develop a tool to facilitate building a strong framework for future growth. Additionally, they were looking to provide efficient and effective services to its vast member base. In order to accomplish this feat, the organization needed to easily access and manage detailed, up-to-date information on its members. Thus, the organization contacted Aciron to develop a custom web-based membership management system. This system would be tailored to the organization’s specific needs. Therefore, allowing the organization to easily track and manage essential membership information.
How We Added Value:
Aciron conducted a series of requirements-gathering sessions and developed a set of story-board slides/screen mock-ups. These documents enabled the client to visualize the application before the development of the application.
Aciron followed an agile, flexible approach to the development of the application, allowing the client to regularly review, provide feedback, and make adjustments to the application. Therefore, every aspect of the project was documented to ensure that functional specifications were well defined. Aciron engaged key stakeholders and provided regular status updates, delivering complete visibility into the progress of the project.
