7 Signs It’s Time to Upgrade Your AMS: #1 Not in the Cloud

Your current AMS is a classic example of a software tool that’s probably outlived its usefulness. Not because AMS solutions are in decline or less relevant to the success of today’s leading associations.  Rather, some solutions overpromise and underdeliver, update too slowly (not at all…hope you are not part of that community) or were built on code that is decades old. The reason doesn’t matter…there comes a time when you’ve got to cut the cord and stop making excuses.  In other words, ditch your old AMS and find a new one.

Members have become more demanding than ever before when it comes to customer experience. The bar has been set high by Amazon and many of the technologies they interact with on a daily basis. That’s why you need a AMS solution that can keep up with demand and enable your staff to offer the best possible level of service to your members.

If your current AMS implementation shows any of the following signs, then it’s definitely time for a change:

 

#1. It’s Not in the Cloud

Limited to Internal Infrastructures

Today’s industry-leading Association Management Solution (AMS) or membership management solutions are primarily cloud-based, which means they’re not limited by the capabilities of your organization’s internal infrastructure. Nonetheless, many associations still rely on in-house systems or dated premise based solutions that simply can’t keep up with the current pace of digital transformation.

Want to Work Anytime, Anywhere

Association staff, as well as members, expect to be able to work anywhere and anytime or, at the very least, have access to member-specific resources regardless of time, location or device. And from a business perspective, a mobile workforce translates into a more productive and motivated one. That’s why you need a AMS which offers full cloud enablement and mobile functionality (included responsive design).

No AMS can please everybody, but if you’re running into one or more of these challenges, the cost of not making a change may well be more than the investment required to make a strategic technology upgrade. 

Impexium’s 100% web-based Association Management Solution (AMS) supports the full range of association business and administrative activities. We combine enterprise-level functionality with the benefits of a software-as-a-service model to deliver a mobile-first, responsive, analytics driven platform to associations of all sizes.
