Thanks to its robust functionality, netFORUM Pro featuring netFORUM iPhone has just raised the bar on association management and the overall membership experience
McLean, VA (Vocus) September 9, 2009
Association executives and members using Avectra’s netFORUM Pro association management software now have the power of an integrated iPhone application, which transfers the ease of use of netFORUM from the desktop to the smartphone.
“iPhone and netFORUM are a perfect match,” said Bruce Lovett, vice president of marketing for Avectra. “They both employ advanced and exciting technologies to deliver the flexibility, user-friendliness and efficiency that busy professionals and association members have come to rely on.”
netFORUM iPhone allows association members to:
-- Launch a call, email or text message from the member directory
-- Locate nearby members via the iPhone GPS and meet in person with ease via Google Maps
-- Access CEUs and track professional development
-- Shift views between national and chapter memberships
-- Review upcoming events and view meeting information
-- Stay on top of the latest association news from the association’s web site
-- View the member profile, including the member’s history, event attendance and purchases
Avectra’s new iPhone application is one of the many updates in the company’s latest release of its netFORUM Pro and netFORUM Team on demand association management software. Additional functionality includes:
-- Tools to set up, manage inventory and determine cost of goods sold through warehouses for robust eCommerce functionality.
-- New executive dashboards to provide association managers with actionable business data including the ability for staff to personalize their own dashboards.
-- The ability to set up dependent memberships where membership in one organization or chapter is dependent on membership in another organization.
-- Enhanced web functionality improves member sign up, product search, member directory setup, and allows content publishing based on specific membership types.
The updated functionality is available to netFORUM Team and netFORUM Pro customers as part of Avectra’s on demand association management software service.
“Thanks to its robust functionality, netFORUM Pro featuring netFORUM iPhone has just raised the bar on association management and the overall membership experience,” Lovett said.
