Columbia, MD (PRWEB) November 13, 2012
ACGI Software®, the trusted leader in association management software (AMS), today announced the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP) had licensed and implemented Association Anywhere, its cloud-based association management system (AMS). NAPNAP, based in Cherry Hill, NJ, with over 7,500 members and 48 chapters across the United States, is using Association Anywhere to centralize its member data, streamline operations and deliver enhanced services to members.
“As NAPNAP’s growth accelerated over the past few years, our reliance on multiple back-office systems and manual processes was limiting staff efficiency and impeding member service,” said Felicia Taylor, Director of Membership Chapters and Communications. “By adopting Association Anywhere as our association management system, we are boosting operational effectiveness and member engagement through greater levels of automation, expanded online self-service capabilities and real-time reporting for data-driven decision making.”
The association business is anything but static; organizations like NAPNAP are continually expanding and evolving member services. To do this, associations commonly invest in add-on tools and applications, creating operational complexity and isolated silos of member data.
One of the key reasons NAPNAP chose Association Anywhere is its ability to integrate third-party systems, automating previously complex tasks and creating a single, accurate member record. At NAPNAP, Association Anywhere interoperates with back-office and Web applications, including:
- Connected Community from Higher Logic – the integration with Association Anywhere enables secure and private social networking and social association relationship management.
- EthosCE from DLC solutions – works with Association Anywhere to enable the full life-cycle of delivering continuing education (CE) and managing member participation in certification and training programs.
- MAS 90 accounting software and PayPal Payflow Pro payment gateway – integration with Association Anywhere has improved accounting controls and eliminated manual processing improving cash flow and online service delivery.
- Sitefinity Web CMS integrated by Vanguard Technology - Association Anywhere is compatible with all Web content management (CMS) platforms, providing dozens of self-service extensions for association websites. It also enables single sign-on, so members can readily access secure members-only content, like NAPNAP’s Career Connection job board.
Beyond its integration with NAPNAP’s third-party systems, Association Anywhere offers NAPNAP a suite of 40 tightly integrated software modules that provide task-specific functionality for managing a wide range of association functions. In phase two of the implementation, ACGI will work with NAPNAP to roll-out modules for managing surveys, submittals and events.
“What separates Association Anywhere from other AMS systems is its ability to bridge our customers’ ‘point’ applications into a unified system that enables greater efficiency and the delivery of truly useful member services,” said Kevin Hostutler, president and CEO, ACGI Software. “We’re grateful that NAPNAP selected ACGI Software and Association Anywhere to help them transform their business in this way, and look forward to supporting their mission for years to come.”
With over 7,500 members, NAPNAP is the professional association for PNPs and other advanced practice nurses who care for children. Established in 1973, NAPNAP has been actively advocating for children's health by: providing funding, education, and research opportunities to PNPs; and producing and distributing educational materials to parents and families. NAPNAP prides itself in the caliber of its members, which includes national child health care experts, respected authors, distinguished faculty, and practicing professionals.
