Columbia, MD (PRWEB) February 18, 2009
ACGI Software, the trusted leader in association management software today announced the release of version 6.0 of its flagship product, Association Anywhere®. ACGI showcased the new release to association management professionals at the recent ASAE Technology Conference & Expo in Washington, DC.
In addition to the robust feature set association users are accustomed to, Association Anywhere 6.0 offers the following feature enhancements:
- A new portal module that allows users to customize Association Anywhere's interface with relevant information they need to do their jobs efficiently. The portal includes a number of simple out-of-the box "portlets" that aggregate data from all business areas in the system and across multiple data sources. End-users can add, move and remove portlets as they wish. ACGI expects to roll out more portlets in future releases, including syndicated content from various web services. Customers can also create their own custom portlets with the product's Portlet Builder.
- An expansion of the Enhanced Reporting and Business Intelligence module, built on Business Objects™ XI (BOXI) technologies. New add-on components include advanced visualization, dashboarding and business performance management, allowing organizations to gain better insight into all aspects of their association's business.
- An enhanced Web services architecture with a Web Services Generator, allowing technical users to publish real-time XML feeds without having to write any code.
- Integration to a greater number of third-party systems and services including Microsoft® Exchange, Google® Maps, address verification, social networking platforms and content management. ACGI continues to work with its technology partners on integration to reduce the manual processes users contend with daily.
"The reaction to Association Anywhere version 6.0, after it was showcased at ACGI's Customer Summit and the ASAE Annual Meeting, has been overwhelming " said Arj Devadas, VP Sales and Marketing at ACGI Software. "In the short time it's been available, nearly half our customer base has already requested an upgrade. We feel this is a strong endorsement of the product's enhancements and additional features, many of which were directly suggested by our users."
One early adopter couldn't agree more. Marc Durling, Director, Information Technology and Online Services at the Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA) in Princeton, New Jersey, stated "ACGI really took the time to listen to user input and incorporate it in the new release. As we put the new release through its paces, we found significant improvements that will have an overall positive impact on the way we run our organization."
