Recommends Investing in Staff Education to Make Software Users More Effective

Kevin Hostutler, CEO of ACGI Software, Inc., the trusted leader in association management software, stated that educating association staff on the use of mission-critical applications is a sound investment in these difficult times.

Hostutler spoke with Wes Trochlil, President of Effective Database Management, LLC, about how enabling staff to use association management software more effectively results in better service and higher member satisfaction. It also helps keep the software relevant over a longer period of time for a greater return on investment.

"ACGI Software is committed to keeping its users educated and knowledgeable on its flagship Association Anywhere product," Hostutler said. "In fact, we offer free monthly webinars that provide training on specific modules or product functionality. We want our users to continuously get the most out of our software for the benefit of their organizations and members."

At a time when associations are having to cut back on expenses and may be seeing a decline in event registrations and memberships, cost control is critical to survival. An AMS that is delivered via Software as a Service (SaaS) model, such as Association Anywhere, is affordable compared to traditional systems that require huge up-front license fees. By paying for the system out of operating funds, organizations avoid capital expenditures and the accounting hassles that accompany them.

"We're proud of the partnership we have with our customers," said Hostutler, "and we're willing to go the extra mile to help them run their businesses more effectively. Educating staff on mission-critical applications is a great way to boost productivity and member service during these challenging times."
