Providing Membership Management Software for Non-Profit
How Aciron does it
A non-profit organization had members spread across the United States. Unfortunately, it needed a tool to facilitate building a framework for future growth. Additionally, they were looking to provide effective services to its vast member base. Overall, they asked Aciron to build a custom database system.
"We contracted to work on one project with Aciron, and I was so impressed with the results that I soon decided to change course and hand over the design of an interactive member's portal. The results have been nothing short of spectacular and we've received much positive feedback from our membership. I am delighted with the diligence, attention to detail and kindness that Aciron and their technical staff have displayed and would recommend Aciron Consulting without qualification or hesitation." - Executive Director
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 management system. To clarify, this system would be tailored to the organization’s needs. Therefore, allowing the organization to easily track and manage essential membership information.
To start, Aciron conducted a series of requirements-gathering sessions and developed a set of story-board slides/screen mock-ups. Most importantly, these documents enabled the client to visualize the layout before the application development.
Like always, Aciron followed an flexible approach to the application development. In other words, allowing the client to regularly review, provide feedback, and make adjustments. Therefore, every aspect was documented to ensure that all functions were recorded. Aciron engaged stakeholders and provided regular status updates. Above all, we delivered complete visibility into the project progress. As a result, we delivered a scalable, end-to-end system that met all of the client’s needs. In addition, we have continued to provide extended functionality for their membership system.
In conclusion, Aciron developed a custom web-based database system. In short, it enabled the nonprofit to easily track, organize, and manage its members. To sum up, the membership management system can maintain an effective program by:
Maintaining a complete membership directory
Tracking and updating members’ information and membership records
Tracking members’ dues, payments, and orders
Accepting membership registrations online
Managing all users’ roles within the system
Accessing data anytime over the internet
Maintaining the security of member information via a robust security framework, and more.
So, the database system was developed to be flexible. To clarify, enhancements can be implemented easily. However, the system can seamlessly adapt to meet the client’s evolving requirements.
As a result, the custom management system continues to play a vital role in within the organization. Furthermore, the system has improved member participation and retention.
