Avectra Social CRM for Associations will revolutionize associations and member-based organizations,” stated Patrick Dorsey, vice president of marketing for Avectra.
McLean, VA (Vocus/PRWEB) March 10, 2011
Avectra, the leading provider of web based association management software (AMS), unveiled today Avectra Social CRM for Associations – the association industry’s first and only 100% social media savvy Member Engagement Platform.
Avectra Social CRM for Associations introduces a new era in membership management by seamlessly fusing a member’s social interactions and relationships with critical business information in the membership database. Avectra is uniquely positioned to deliver this Member Engagement Platform thanks to the company’s world-class netFORUM membership management solution with the built-in MemberFuse social networking solution. The platform also delivers a powerful analytics suite – including Avectra’s propriety A-Score™ – and conventional social media monitoring and management.
“Avectra Social CRM for Associations will revolutionize associations and member-based organizations,” stated Patrick Dorsey, vice president of marketing for Avectra. “The ability to leverage existing social networking data with ongoing membership initiatives provides a deeper view of the member’s engagement level and identifies high value members invested in the association’s future.”
Avectra Social CRM for Associations marks a shift from the status quo where traditional membership management solutions provided internal benefits or optimized operational effectiveness with the member relationship defined by a series of transactions. Avectra Social CRM for Associations recognizes that the member’s experience and interactions are the relationship focal points that create benefits for the member, not just the organization. As a result, engagement drives transactions.
Avectra Social CRM for Associations’ innovative Member Engagement Platform includes:
- Social Media Monitoring
- Social Media Management
- Social Content Accelerator
In addition to Avectra’s industry leading netFORUM and MemberFuse solutions, the Member Engagement Platform provides tools to develop a clearer understanding of issues motivating members to join, participate, and renew; improve member service and increase retention thanks to new abilities to immediately respond to member concerns and interact with members on their own terms as well as monitoring not just the organization’s relationship with each member but also what each member is saying about the member-organization relationship.
“We have served the association and the member-based community for more than 16 years. Avectra Social CRM for Associations is the natural evolution of everything we learned successfully serving over 1,600 customers and the millions of individuals in their respective communities,” stated Dorsey. “We are proud to deliver another innovation that defines how the industry’s most successful organizations communicate, collaborate and engage their members.”
Avectra Social CRM for Associations will be available with both netFORUM Enterprise and netFORUM Pro association management software services.
