The member benefits not only because it is now a seamless process but because these actions happen each and every time –- delivering a consistent experience for all members.
Mclean, VA (Vocus) August 13, 2009
Avectra announced today the release of netFORUM Enterprise 3.0, the latest version of the company’s on demand enterprise level association management system that helps associations save money and delivers the latest technology for member management solutions.
Powered by the latest Microsoft technology, this new release is built on the .NET 3.51 framework and features 64-bit SQL 2008 databases, 2008 SQL Reporting Services with Dundas software for enhanced graphical reporting and back-end servers running on Windows Server 2008 Enterprise edition.
netFORUM Enterprise 3.0 will help associations and member based organizations to:
- Save money with automated workflows and query enhancements that reduce the need for customized reports
- Make smarter business decisions with actionable business data delivered through personalized dashboards that enable users to drill down through reports to the underlying data – all without any additional software
- Enhance member service and social networking with expansion of existing Microsoft SharePoint integrations with more web parts and services along with a redesigned Continuing Education Unit (CEU) module and new accounting procedures
netFORUM Enterprise 3.0 features automated workflows that allow organizations to improve process performance by automating common tasks. Automation may be as basic as sending a welcome email to a new member to performing complex actions such as processing a product return involving adjusting inventory, adjusting the accounting general ledger, issuing a credit, and sending the member a confirmation email.
“netFORUM Enterprise 3.0’s workflow provides an immediate ROI for associations by automating your best practices and eliminating redundant activities with automated tasks so they happen quickly and efficiently,” said Bruce Lovett, vice president of marketing for Avectra. “The member benefits not only because it is now a seamless process but because these actions happen each and every time –- delivering a consistent experience for all members.”
The release also features a redesigned interface for executive dashboards that provides association managers and staff at all levels with actionable data to make timely and smarter business decisions. Not only can staff members personalize their dashboard – from the executive director who wants a big picture view of membership trends to the event manager who needs to track event revenue – but it does not require any additional software to access information. Users are also able to drill through the dashboards to get to the underlying data including trending information and identifying specific members associated with a dashboard metric.
“In these economic times, associations are looking for actionable data that is available at their fingertips without running complex reports or purchasing additional software,” said Lovett. “netFORUM Enterprise 3.0’s executive dashboards and graphical workflow offer association leaders business intelligence that not only helps them understand the data but also helps them adjust their business processes as they chart their organization’s course.”
