We are pleased to announce this new relationship and aid AANA in the ultimate goal of continually increasing member value.
Washington, DC (Vocus) June 22, 2010
The American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA), the professional organization representing more than 40,000 Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) and student nurse anesthetists, is pleased to announce its partnership with Aptify, a leading provider of Association Management System (AMS) software to enterprise-class associations around the world.
This partnership will improve AANA’s technical capabilities and increase the association’s ease in providing top-level member service through the use of Aptify’s AMS software and Rapid Application Development (RAD) platform.
In the ever-changing healthcare industry, it was essential for AANA to find a software system that could be easily enhanced and upgraded to meet critical member needs and not disrupt the productivity of the association. AANA had high expectations with end users desiring more efficient interaction, greater security and flexibility, and more visibility into operations leading to more proactive member service.
The process of finding an Association Management Software system began with identifying and clarifying business requirements internally. Feedback from both the AANA Board of Directors and at-large members was considered regarding operational objectives and member service enhancements. Proposals were sought from various vendors, and in the end Aptify was selected due to the flexibility of its RAD platform.
The Aptify RAD platform is an Application Lifecycle Platform that provides a solution enabling AANA to leverage technology as a strategic asset. A full suite of application modules will allow AANA to plan events, facilitate communications, automate workflow, manage member relationships and more.
“We are looking to web-enable our member-facing services to a higher degree and to better integrate the back office business process to serve our members, as well as improve internal efficiency. Aptify’s Membership Management Software and RAD platform will allow us to not only meet existing requirements today, but also adapt to future requirements,” said Luis Rivera, Senior Director, Executive Affairs for AANA.
Aptify’s CEO Amith Nagarajan said, “We are pleased to announce this new relationship and aid AANA in the ultimate goal of continually increasing member value.”
