AMS software offers a variety of operational and financial benefits to optimize your association’s systems and make member engagement easier. Delivering an all-in-one solution for your association database management systems, AMS lets you handle different applications and integrations from one central system. Some of the ways it can improve your association’s efficiency include:

  • Optimized automation: With AMS software, you can automate a variety of time-intensive procedures that were once manual, significantly increasing your operation’s productivity and efficiency.
  • Increased accuracy: Automated processes minimize human error and ensure clean data across the organization’s association management database.
  • Advanced analytics: AMS offers access to in-depth reports and analytics on financial health, membership data and other information essential to your operations.
  • Improved data integrity: With one system to handle various integrations and applications, you can ensure a higher level of data integrity and better reconciliation across areas of your organization.

Our AMS has improved operations for many different associations. We’ve worked with a variety of clients to help them integrate their systems, more effectively manage data and create simpler processes for their users.

From the National Society of Professional Engineers to the National Association of College and University Business Officers, we’ve delivered solutions that optimized our clients’ processes in many different ways. AMS can help develop a more user-friendly experience for organization administrators and members — its diverse applications for simplifying many different procedures offer various advantages.

One case study of how our solutions can optimize association efficiency is our work with the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA). The organization needed a way to simplify earning mandatory CLE credits, and they chose to implement our Freestone LMS option. With the tools our LMS provided, they were able to implement the system easily and build in features such as single sign-on through AMS/LMS integration.
