Avectra has the resources to continuously collect user feedback and benchmark against industry best practices throughout our product development.
McLean, VA (Vocus) July 27, 2010
Avectra, the industry’s leading web-based association management software (AMS) provider, announced today a software upgrade for netFORUM Pro for Real Estate Associations – the company’s, proven, game-changing software designed for the unique needs of REALTOR® associations and boards.
Developed with feedback from the National Association of REALTORS®, Avectra’s REALTOR® association customers, and Avectra’s sixteen plus years of association technology leadership, this release includes several significant REALTOR® association specific updates including support for supplemental/secondary memberships and a real-time, two-way data transfer with the National REALTOR® Database System (NRDS).
“Avectra has the resources to continuously collect user feedback and benchmark against industry best practices throughout our product development,” said Patrick Dorsey, vice president of marketing for Avectra. “This release is yet another example of Avectra’s commitment to developing innovative software through user collaboration. The REALTOR® association market demanded a better way to manage their members and business, and based on the market’s response, Avectra successfully answered the call.”
Introduced in fall 2009, netFORUM Pro for Real Estate Associations – Avectra’s 100% web-based REALTOR® association software – has already become a dominant industry force. Avectra’s impressive customer roster includes state and local REALTOR® associations and boards who recognize Avectra’s ability to successfully deliver a proven, web-based association management system that allows them to meets the distinct needs of REALTOR® associations as well as tap into aspects of traditional association management — e-Marketing, meeting management and registrations, online individual profiles, e-Commerce and more — all within one solution.
"We frequently come across organizations frustrated by the technological and financial constraints of the traditional — and outdated — membership management options for REALTOR® associations," said Dorsey. "The new functionality not only pulls from NRDS but also pushes local data to the National REALTOR® Database. As a result, our clients meet the NAR ‘real-time’ mandate and realize significant financial rewards and member benefits by increasing staff efficiency and effectiveness, with minimal outlay of time and money.”
netFORUM Pro for Real Estate Associations is powerful web-based association software designed for the unique needs of REALTOR® associations. It features not only NRDS integration for data transfer but also the ability to use the National Association of REALTORS® e-Commerce site as the payment processor, REALTOR® specific data fields, dues collection and automatic distribution among several real estate associations and bank accounts, and REALTOR® association specific reports.
